I would like to request that we do this again.

Maybe this time around we can get a dedicated (some what isolated) area for trying out different speakers, along with assorted Alembic preamps?

I only have the Office Manager's e-mail (Heather Taitel) and do not recall the guy from B.E. that was running around getting everything to work for us!

Mica are you in?
Who else?

Me too! Any chance it could be from Mid-June onwards? As I recall, it was in May last year.

Seriously, that would be awesome! And don't forget to bring your playing fingers...

And this event was also responsible for my bass player to start getting ready to order a Triple Omega Series II with Continuous Backplates Book Matched Center Buckeye Burl top Ebony/Maple 7ply Neck Matching Headstock 6 String Bass.

I had a great time last year. As for this year, if it's after the middle of June (when school is out), I suspect I could talk senior management into letting me go again - so long as I brought her along this time and we spent a few days exploring the Windy City, Hog Butcher to the World, etc. I'll even bring Old #10 this time (assuming I get it back from Alembic by then). Especially if Jonathan's buying the pizza. (Jonathan - make sure to tell your patients not to get sick that day! lol).

Bill, tgo

After middle of June works best for me, too. Saturday the 19th looks especially nice.

And yes, Bill. I will definitely make sure I'm not on call that weekend...really put a damper on the whole thing for me last year. I can't believe I had to leave before they did Smoke on the Water!

And thx again for the pizzas Jonathan. I may just have to bring something to 'wash' them down with this year.

John...Gary...

The pizzas were my pleasure. If no one has any special requests, I'll bring the same. But the out-of-towners are more than welcome to suggest something else if they'd like.

Can't wait to see you all again this year!

I put a hold on my calendar for June 19th to reserve the date. We had the use of Bag End last year through the participation and kind cooperation of the Mothership. Mica, any chance of a return?

Same thing happened to me. But I don't hold a grudge. I'm in. She will be with me. And, I will, once again, try to have the second oldest Alembic there.

Now, I think we missed a couple of people last time. Moder Dave was going to come in, but got sick. I think there were others.

Hope we can do these once in a lifetime things annually.

Hey, just read through all the posts. Okay with me if I have the third oldest. Or even the 59th.

Maybe this time I'll have the nerve to actually look at your bass, dw. It's like pornography, but a bass.

Following Keavin's lead from last time (he walked in and handed off SN 12 to the first person he met), it will be available for looking and playing.

Hope this happens.

I am interested in the Chicago-area gathering too. June 19th is Eagles/Dixie Chicks/Keith Urban at Soldier Field and I promised I'd take my country-music-loving fiancée, though.

I hope that isn't the date, as I have to work a bicycle race that day. I'd sure hate to miss the gathering...

Could do the 20th!

Went camping at Illnois State Beach instead, so I missed your post Keavin.

Maybe it was a one person gathering???
