    I saw all these GTG around my area, but they're still pretty far away. Virginia is 14 hours away, NY is a good 3 or 4.. How about a bostonian/Masshole/New Hampshirite/Neighboring stateite GTG in boston or a neighboring town or city? Who's in? I think late June or early August will be a good time. Who's in?
     
  2. Late June is a no-go. ;)

    But yeah, early August is cool...there had been talk of one, haven't seen anything concrete yet, where'd you have in mind?

    Yea, I've tried to get in on some of the past ones, but they never seem to get off the ground. I was planning on weasling in on the NYC one just to get a gear fix. Boston's OK with me, but I wouldn't mind if it could move west a bit. July/early August is somewhat open for me but later in August I'm going to be on the beach up near Chris Stambaugh (gotta stop by this time I think...)

    I'd be interested, but my band is gigging a bit end of July through August. Set a date and I'll make it if I can.

    I know, we're playing Tequila's, the big country/rock bar in Danvers on Aug 6, we can hold it there. Everyone can take the line dancing lessons and get down! :rolleyes: :eyebrow: :ninja: :bag:

    I'll be back for a visit to my old diggs in late September or early October. Too late for this gathering, I know, but should anything be happening then ....

    August works for me. Especially around the 10th. Then everyone could bring birthday gifts for me. :D

    Hrm.. well, we could possibly do it in my home town of andover. it's 20-30 minutes north of boston on I93. Mid august would be cool with me too.
     

  8. Same with my birthday too!

    I'll chime in to see if any plans go through. Of course I'll be showing up bassless. :( The Stammie won't be done in August, but it will be well worth the wait!!

    Still working on a *cough-pigroast-cough* GTG. But having a tough time finding a cool place to have it outdoors.
     
  10. Already have my favorite bib picked out. :bassist: :D

    Do you mean at your house?

    I think the main reason that lots of these GTGs don't end up happening is that there's no suitable big free place for everyone.
     
  13. I'm game for this.

    I'm in depending on the chemo schedule. The first week in August would work best for me.

    I'll be up in Andover for the first couple weeks in August taking my mid-tour-summer-vacation. That'd be pretty cool. Let me know what's up!
