    I was thinking about trying to put one together, possibly at my churches gymnasium, I was wondering if there would be any interest?

  2. I'm always interested, schedule-permitting, though I have to say that we tried this about six months ago and although there were maybe 10 or so commitments to come, I was the only TBer to show up at the host's house. Still, we had a great time with the basses we had (and watching football, eating wings, etc.), but I guess it's just a word of warning. It's not the same not having Gard at BC.

    very true.

    i'm a "maybe."
     
  5. I'd love to. I was 'the host' that Nick was speaking of. Things went well in the planning stage, but quickly disintegrated. Let's have a monster comeback and have a FL get together.

    With a little notice, I can make arrangements to be there.


    ps - nick, hope you're enjoying the JB-2:hyper:
     
  6. John, the JB-2 is getting some seriously playing time (my other basses feel neglected!) and sounds incredible. Thanks! :hyper:

    Let me know, I can usually work around work. After that, it's just money to get there.

    Dang...in Winter Garden???

    My grandmother & dad live there!!!

    (Well, it's a Winter Garden mailing address, but it's actually in Lake County, right off SR 50..)

    ...when are you planning it??? Maybe I can arrange to go visit my family around then...well....maybe not...dunno....


    You should totally get in touch with Jaxlaw here, he's a WG resident as well (and former student of mine). Great guy. Also, there's a cat who's s/n-handle here is Lizzard Tom over in Montverde, but he's not too active, so you'd have to try and e-mail him....

    ....good luck, we had a couple fun but small GTG's back in my Bass Central days....

    Gotta tell ya, I do NOT miss the summers down there! :spit:
