Actually, you're in luck. There are quite a few cubers around the Houston area.

We're having an official competition in South Texas in 3 weeks; you should try to come! :D
If you can find a way down here, you're welcome to stay with me Friday and Saturday night.

So, you think you can make it? :)
Also, (not that it really matters) but I didn't realize that you're a girl until I saw female on your registration just now. :p

No, wca has decided to not hold comps in Texas in fear of nuclear bombs. You might say "lulwut", but just think about it.

It's starting to get somewhat irritating seeing all these threads about wanting Texas competitions pop up.

If anyone from a major Texas city can get us a suitable venue (can be rented from 8am-6pm on a Saturday, $200 or less total, large enough for at least 100 people, has tables and chairs, not cold, etc) to hold a competition, I'm more than willing to take care of the rest.

If not, I'll probably have another competition down here in South Texas. That's the best I can promise. Texas is too damn big, and I unfortunately live fairly far away from most of you.

ok! no need to be irritated. i just never been to a comp before and im really itching to go to one. im not asking you to organize it. i just want to go to one and whoever organizes it is fine with me. im sorry if i upset you. ill stop asking this question if it makes everyone feel better.

Haha, don't worry. I'm not mad at anyone. I just keep seeing these threads pop up every now and then (not only from you), but no ones taking the initiative. I know a few Dallas cubers have been trying to find something suitable, so hopefully that works out. Like I said, our main problem is the venue at this point.

I am going to check a few places around Dallas and see what I can come up with.
