  1. I'm expecting around 200 or so ...maybe more. Not at liberty to give details yet ...but there will be some special guests making appearances as well. This event will not disappoint.
  2. Thanks to the mods for the update on the thread title.
  3. Dates are set ...September 14-16. Sure to be a classic. Join us as we paint the Big Apple claret & blue. Facebook event page
  4. The famous Football Factory at Legends in New York City will be the headquarters for big North American meetup in 2018. Dates to be determined ...but as always, it will be during the first month or so of the new season (2018/19). This event gets better every year & the NYC/Boston Lions Clubs are sure to do an excellent job on the festivities. Watch this space for details.

    5th Annual North American Lions Club Meet Up

    Hurricane Harvey hasn't washed us away ...Austin is 160 miles away from Houston. So if you're wondering about the big event ...it is still happening as planned. Don't miss out on the North American Villa party of the year in nine days.
  8. The 5th annual North American Lions meetup will take place from September 15 - September 17 in the great city of Austin, Texas. It gets bigger & better every year. Looking forward to meeting some new Villa friends again this year. Facebook Event Page

    Paddy's "Things that cheer you up"

    Thanks ...you'd be surprised at the following here. Not anywhere near the level of the plastic clubs ...but still, substantial. Pretty much most major cities have a supporters club. I'm chairman of the Houston supporters club (yes, that's a thing) & we consistently had several show up every week at the local pub we share with the Houston Spurs (also a Bayern Munich bar ...if the name doesn't give it away). Fewer matches on TV now after the relegation. But the regulars are there at every opportunity. We get tons of respect from other supporter groups for our level of pain tolerance. Even the local MLS radio/TV announcer gives us the occasional shout-out. On the North American meetup ...this was the fourth annual. I've made two myself. It grows every year. Around 100 or so Villans there this time. It's usually in a destination type city that people naturally want to travel to ...Chicago this year, San Diego last year ...my money's on Austin for next year. Great party town & only a three hour drive for me. Ian Taylor showed up this year & had such a good time he vowed to make it an annual tradition. See ...all yanks are not glory hunters. Oh, and just because I love it, our flag ...

    What do you drive?

    My 2012 Speed holding up well after 4 years of Houston traffic. Have to admit I've been asked if the plates & badges give me disabled parking privileges.
