You are in luck. There is an Austin-based fire spinners list. It is called pyrogenesis. You can find out how to sub to it via going to www.burningflipside.com and then looking for mailing lists on the left.
Austin has a great spinning community, although Arashi is the only regular HOPper at the moment. Adam Rice is also based there.
