    Clear your calendars for one cool GTG!

    This GTG promises to be alot of fun as well as informational.

    Date and Time: Noon to 6 PM on October 13 2012

    Place: Lakland factory: 1811 W. Berteau Ave, Chicago, IL 60613

    Activities:

    • There will be clinics throughout the day by various Lakland endorsing artists.

    • There will be demonstrations of the process for PLEKing, pickup winding, and other cool “behind the curtain” processes.

    • There will be a sneak-peak EXCLUSIVE preview of the new products that Lakland will debut at Winter NAMM. You will not want to miss this. Lakland some great things happening!

    • There will be some special guests on hand to mingle and talk a little shop with the attendees. These will include some technical experts that have helped Lakland in the past.

    • Some of Lakland’s fantastic techs will be available to chat with and perform setups on instruments.

    • There will be some Hors D'oerves from the local Ravenswood neighborhood. This will be MUCH to be much better than chips and soda.

    • There may even be some other intersting “taste testing” from some local distillers.

    If that list does not make you REALLY want to attend…..I am not sure what will!

    This sounds great! It's only eight hours from my house to Chicago. The wife has been wanting to go to Chicago for a while so this may be the perfect excuse to make the trip.

    Awesome! A weekend and it's local.

    Mike - I'd love to try out one of your cabs... You got something based on a 15"? 15/6/1?
