After six years of advertising, organizing, and running Texas BROADSIDE!, we figured it was high time our web site got a makeover. To that end, we've decided to move away from our Webs host and switch to Weebly. What you see here now is a new set of Texas BROADSIDE! pages under the new home of Houston Beer and Pretzel Wargaming (http://beerandpretzelwargaming.com).
You can get at the new Texas BROADSIDE! home page by visiting:
You'll find many of the same pages you were used to are available now under the new look.
1. The Home page features an introduction to the event, a link to the three latest news items from this blog page, a countdown timer for the event, a list of our corporate supporters, and the Save the Battleship Texas video, narrated by Lyle Lovett.
2. The About page goes into a little more detail about what Texas BROADSIDE! is all about and our goals for organizing and running this event. We also express our gratitude to some of the hard working men and women associated with Texas Parks and Wildlife and the Battleship Texas Foundation, folks whose ongoing patience and support makes Texas BROADSIDE! possible.
3. Our News page is in reality a blog site dedicated to updating visitors on important events and news items associated with Texas BROADSIDE!, like this description about the new web site. If you don't want to return to this News page on a regular basis, to get the scoop on the latest updates about our event, you can opt to subscribe to the RSS feed associated with this blog and get each post delivered right to your favorite browser.
4. Our Gaming pages include, at site launch, our Register a Wargame page, which you can use to
volunteer to run one or more games in our forthcoming event. As the event gets closer, about three months out from our October dates, you'll see additional pages appear here that will document our Saturday and Sunday game schedules and provide you a place to go to register to attend the event itself.
5. Our Information page provides detailed practical information about Texas BROADSIDE and being aboard USS TEXAS in October. If you have logistical or administrative questions about Texas BROADSIDE then you should first start with the contents of this page. If the information therein doesn't answer your questions then shoot us a message and we'll be happy to help.
6. Our Photos page provides images of all of our previous Texas BROADSIDE! events. Peruse these to see what kinds of games have been played in the past, get a sense for the venue, and maybe even catch a glimpse of yourself!
7. Our USS TEXAS page includes a historic timeline of important event in the life of the ship, a brief description of the ship, and a recent update on the maintenance and renovations that are taking place aboard her.
