Doug, the New Orleans CBG festival isthe middle of next month.   They changed the name to the Samanth Fish CBG festival.  It's probably listed under events on the Nation website.

Man it took me most of the morning scrolling down the list look'in forever for the Texas group. Yea, I missed it...again, the hill country get together.  Sounds right for a CBG festival. -Doug in Bryan, TX

I live in Dallas and if there's a local group, I don't know about it. I too would love to become part of it though.

New to it all here in Dallas. I heard at Harbor Freight from the manager that there was someone else in the store for CBG building materials and tools just a few days before me. Said there was a local group that got together.  I play 100 year old hickory golf clubs so it just seems right that I learn to build and play CBG.  Anyone in the Dallas area here?

Comment by Dave Nyberg on October 28, 2019 at 9:14pm

Wondering if there is any builders/players around the Seguin/New Braunfels area. I'd like to find someone in my area to chat, build and play CBG's!!

I see that the 5th ROT CBG Festival is in November, is there anything else like that coming up after that?

Comment by Poorness Studios on August 27, 2019 at 4:32pm

Hopefully everybody saw this event... https://cigarboxnation.com/events/5th-republic-of-texas-cbg-festival

Yeehaw! I'm ready!

Comment by Bob Johnston on October 4, 2018 at 2:34pm

It would be great to look at other builds.  The only CBG's I've held and looked at are my own.
