  • Glad to hear that it's turning out to potentially be larger than expected! I missed out last year, so this will be my first year to make it. I don't fully know what to expect, but I'm excited to see how these shows work and meet some people.

    I'm considering taking Friday off, worth it? Or just plan for the weekend?

    There is a possibility I might not show this year. My father will be celebrating his 60th and I'm thinking I want to try and attend.

    skip, i'm sure some of us will cover your rooms while you are partying.
    heck, i'll help out for a free bed to make up for my trip to axpona. :D:D

    Russ, do we have the same rooms allotted for us?

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    btw, Will there be Lone Star beer and Bob Wills music?

    That would be awesome! I'd gladly make that drive just to hear the Volterras. I know Skip speaks very highly of those, and I'm interested in what lies between the Pienza and Skip's Sienas. Not that it's in my budget at the moment, but I love learning more about what's out there.
