It is hard to believe but it was been almost 10 years ago when on June 20th, 2008; I got into my car and did the horrible recording that ended up as Episode One of TSP.
In these 10 years I have had incredible successes and some true failures as well. A journey worth taking is full of ups and downs, and this decade of TSP has been full of both. But in the end you guys stuck with me. One month into TSP I had about 25 listeners and set a goal to grow to 1,000 by the end of 08, we slammed that number times 2.5 and hit 2500.
We now average about 189,000 downloads a day over any given month. When I look at that and think of the life I have today I am so eternally grateful to you guys.
As previously announced we are doing a 10 year party at a place called Meso Maya in downtown Fort Worth and the date will be August 11, 2018. Originally we were going to allow 50 attendees and cover the cost of food for everyone, as I want to give something to you guys. But I have been blown away by how many people have contacted me about coming and traveling to do so. I realize that we are going to have to set a limit but we have moved that limit to 100. Here is how that will work…
- The first 50 reserved spots will be free
- The second 50 will be sold for 25 dollars a piece
That 25 dollars is my cost for food per person. The way it will work is on Saturday the 7th at 9 A.M. I will put a link on the home page of the MSB, you can log in at that time and fill out a form that link will take you to. Make sure your email and cell phone is correct. If your number is 50 or lower you are in for no cost. If your number is 51-100 you will have the opportunity to buy a ticket for 25 dollars.
We will contact everyone that is in the first 50 with details and to get an RSVP for their spots. We will also contact the next 50 to confirm they want to make payment. If they confirm they get the spot, if any don’t we will offer them to others.
This is really the best we can do. Anyway if you want to come be on stand by Saturday at 9AM central, I will push that link into the MSB exactly at that time, then post here to the blog. Once we get up over 100 I will shut it down, I will likely let it run to about 120 to create a list of stand by folks.
I wish I could accept everyone but this is the best solution we could come to. More details on tomorrow’s TSP Episode.
