Who else of the forum is going this year? Maybe a party and food as Ron Dunnett did a few years ago. I though I could smell burgers .....

As far as i know i get to go this year. This will be my 1st show and am very excited bout going. So far plans are to meet up with jeff(jccabinets) and wife then travel on over to the show with them. So if you see a strange mid'l aged woman wondering around in total aw looking like she is in her own lit'l world, that'd be me, so grab my arm n wake me up and introduce yourself. Looking very forward to meeting lots of people and checking out as many of the booths and cool gear as i can. And if there is a party...i wanna be there. Hope to see ya all there.

Mark,
Thaks for the Greeko update.

robyn64
I'll be at Coopers vintage drums booth most of the weekend. Drop by and say hi. I'm the english guy with the funny accent. Congrats on you first, a show virgin !! You'll be knocked out when you see it. Trust me. Take a towel for the drool !!

BEC.
I know you'll be there my friend. Bottle opener and ear plugs are standard nowadays aren't they?
It's that smell of burgers round the back I want !!

Looking forward to seeing everybody. I like the social side as much as the drums these days.

Dave
