I'm hosting a Rickenbacker Confluence/book launch party in the Milwaukee area this coming weekend (July 19-21). We'll meet in the basement community room of the Water Stone Bank, 6560 So. 27th St., Oak Creek, Wisconsin, Friday evening 6-10pm, Saturday 1-9pm, and Sunday 10am-5pm. Great chance to see multiple Rick basses and talk with like-minded enthusiasts. Please contact me if you are coming or want to know more: pboyer2 AT wi.rr DOT com (replace the usual). Oh . . . and it's free!
