I was at one of the meetups aloooong time ago. It was during a jordan release at sharpstown mall, I think it was the 12's. I was at work that day and during my lunch break I went to sharpstown just to see what the deal was. There were about 10-15 dudes there with heat on. Somebody took a couple pics but I had on a shirt and tie. If someone has some pics, post em' up.
Of course, thats some real OGs right there.
That summit was at Sidelines Sports Bar on Main R.I.P. (the monorail project ran it out of business)
It was on the release day of the Olympic VII Retros.
It was the Summer the Rockets traded for T-Mac, hence I was sporting his HS jersey in celebration.
I got a few more pics from that Summit (posted below)
alief is correct, the first Summit was at Industry Cafe R.I.P.
It was on the release day of the Blue XIIs. (a few peeps met in the morning to get these)
I dont have any pics on hand of that one.
Anyway, back to the Olympic VII Retro Summit
Who wore what?

What I especially liked about these days was that it was only NTers. The last one was cool, don't get me wrong, but it was a lot of non-NTers so it kinda took away from the idea of a "summit". I guess it was more widely publicized than just an NT post is why - and the culture has expanded a bit since back then. Oh well.
You guys got me all nostalgic and stuff so i started to do some digging. I found pics of a lot of past summits, some that I even forgot about. Anyways Im working on uplodaing them. And YES! These pics include the very 1st Summit at Industry Cafe!
I was at the first summit at Industry rocking the OG Jumpman print tee and the released-that-day XII white/blues. I remember Bruza and Mike and Kadoma and some other dudes. And then I had to hit up the bball summit where I met Shoemasta and Russ and some dudes. Luckily, I'll be in town on a break from college and summer school on the 12th so I'm excited about coming through and saying whats up to old and new faces. I'm looking forward to another bball summit sometime soon. Fear the 5'10" left handed whitey D3 hooper!
