We Want uss TeXas (WWTX) (Special Cause Club)

Hey all I would like to form a New special cause club.

Introducing the WWTX

or We Want uss TeXas


We are now official!!

A friend made this statement and it will make a good mission statement

Quote:
Ladies and gentlemen,  

Being an avid was player since the first day the game came out, I have wanted the USS Texas to come out.  With possible economic trouble and the speculation that set 7 may be the last set, I am going to begin pushing hard for this iconic ship to be printed.  Here are some of the reasons why:

--Oldest Dreadnought in existence
--First American BB to launch aircraft
--First American BB to receive CXAM-1 radar
--First American BB to become a permanent museum ship
--First American BB to have AA guns
--First American BB to have gun directors and Rangefinders
--one of only 6 ships to serve in both world wars
--Participated in Operation Torch, Overlord, Dragoon, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa supporting tens of thousands of troops in amphibious assaults, while only suffering one man killed.

Next year marks her 100th Anniversary of her launching. Anyone else who wishes to see the Texas as a ship in the next set, please post.

Thank you and God Bless...

What about instead of Texas how about a special interest for all the old battleships of the US navy. "We Want Battlewagons" "WWB" Any old battlship before North Carolina Class. Just saying here but WWTX is nice to.

If I were to align with any club I would align with you sir, a true gentleman and a great cause. Unfortunately I only align with my own club now, to much politics here for me to have any fun.

Cheers Reacher I wish you all the very best.

Mr Baker tear this wall...oops wrong speech, Mr Baker fire up auto cad and bring this hsip to the masses! We demand it!! (Hey while you are at it! Give us Uss Portland, dang nab it!!)
Sir_Valentine

I would like to join.
mthoward91

Include me in this "Special Cause".  Who do we need to "Occupy" to get this ball rolling.  I only live about 15 minutes from where the USS Texas currently resides, so I am willing to "Occupy" there.

BTW, here's a picture of Texas at the San Jacinto Battleground site, at sunrise.

Reacher

That is a pretty cool pic thanks.
danaussie

@ mthoward91 - Thats an awesome picture mate, lovely piece of photography she is a beautiful looking vessel.

@ Brother Reacher - It looks like things are going great for you and your new club brother and nobody is more pleased for you than I am, I'm your biggest fan.

Cheers brother Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy

Just curious ... now that the mission is accomplished, does the club disband (allowing people to join other "special cause" clubs) and does the thread become "un-stickied"?
bunyan

I was wondering the same thing that Swizzle asked?
