    Does anyone know the first year of the Lonestar Roundup? Just curious as I went the 2nd and I think it was 2002? I am trying to date some pictures.

    Here's something I saw a few weeks ago that leads you to believe the first one was in 2001...

  5. The cutie on the left says 2005 was the 4th one.
    So 2004 was the 3rd.
    2003 had to be the 2nd.
    And so 2002 must have been the 1st. :rolleyes: :cool:
     
  6. The Boss would know but he's on vacation.......

    If 2002 was the first year then I went in 2003 and my enjoyment of the hobby (life) was changed forever. Yes the Boss would know.

  10. I was at the first Round Up, my memory thinks it was 2001? Sure was different then vs now.

    First year was 2002 and it was held at House Park Stadium right on the football field. Here is the artwork from the first annual by Von Franco who was so instrumental in helping us pull this 1st one off. If you have one of these posters hang onto it. It has become very collectible. Folks, that was quite a day for all of us that were there. It was the start of something special here in Austin, Texas. Can't wait to see every one finally this year Labor Day weekend Sept 2-5. 2002.jpg

  12. Correct - this will be our 20th year since year one at House Park in 2002 - but the "19th Annual" since there was no show in 2020. We are squeezing this one in as a special summertime edition since we have been waiting so long.
