2nd Annual NYC Talkbass Get-together - Sunday, September 18th

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Michael Jewels, Jul 5, 2005.

  1. OK, I booked the same hall where we had the get-together last year for Sunday, September 18th, 2005, as we had been discussing in the April 29th thread.

    The hall is: The Woodhaven Athletic Club
    86-08 95th Avenue
    Ozone Park, N.Y. 11416

    I'll post a map later.

    Now that we have one under our belt, we all know more of what to expect, and hopefully we'll make this one better than last year.

    I have some ideas, but I'm not saying anything just yet. ;)

    So, we have almost 2 1/2 months to plan this one.

    I had a great time, met a bunch of very nice people and I got a Peavey Cirrus, a bass I had been looking to buy for about a year out of last year's GTG.

    Hope to see you all there.

    Mike ;)

    Mods, can you sticky this thread, please? :)

    hopefully I can make the trek to the city this year!

    (any South Jersey boys wanna give me a ride, I'll pick up gas and tolls... the G.A.S. is your own, I can't afford my own!)

    Very cool!!! Then I'll buy the coffees and a diner stop ;)

    I'd like to bring at least my fretless and one of my 3 Schroeders (1210, 1212 and Mini12)

    :cool: Space shouldn't be an issue .......... I know a couple of guys wanted to see my FBB 6 and others wanted to check out the Brice Z6NT (if it's still around by that time ;) ), I'd love to hear the 1210 .........

    I'll be there. Have you set a time yet?
  8. We'll probably do something like 1pm - 7pm.

  9. One thing that won't be the same as last year - the food.


    Because the deli from which I got the food just closed.

    They moved to Oceanside! (lousy rats :spit: :D )

    But, do not fear; I have plans.

    Also, the cost per person last year was $20, I think it's going to be less this year.

    YAY!!! :hyper:

    i've been wanting to attend a GTG in so long!

    pointbass and James Hart--if you fellows have some more room i'd love to join as well. i go to school in philly but my parents live in marlton. i guess i'll extend this to any other south jersey/philadelhpia TBers interested in going. of course i'll also chip in for gas, food and whatnot along the way :)

  14. As promised, le map:

    1.) Locate Kennedy airport
    2.) Locate Ozone Park - above the airport and slightly to the left
    3.) Click on Ozone Park

    The hall is located within the triangle just to the left of the "O," of Ozone Park.

    Explore and enjoy the rest of the site. :)

    now that I am no longer an "Ask the pro" is my invitation rescinded?

  16. Absolutely not, Mike.

    Your workshop last year was my favorite part of the GTG. :)

    I love discussing music theory! :hyper:

    Please come again.

    If Joker goes I'll probably have to go to keep him out of trouble :smug:

    I'll try to make it and I'll lug along my special MTD, and the Lakie 55-94 I'm supposed to get this Friday, no guarantees though its a long time from now.

    (BTW is your icon from that Neah gig?)

    I definitly want to go. My wife might get a surgery the 29th of august, but if it is delayed we want to go.
    We would spend 2 or 3 days in NYC.
    If someone can recommand some hotels that would be nice.
  20. You might come from Canada? WOW! :hyper: That would be great! :)

    I'll see what I can find out if and when you know that you're coming for sure.

    Hey, has anybody heard from Ombudsman? :confused:
