    I noticed a lot more MN people on TB than I thought there was. I'm from SD originally, and there's almost none from there or ND. By midwest I don't mean Ohio or Indiana really. That's more "east" to me.

    So, MN, WI, SD, ND, NE, IA, etc.

    I'm sure we could get something together in the Minneapolis/St. Paul (Twin cities) area for a space. I might ask at a few music places, too. I'm sure they'd be interested in doing something. It seems there isn't a GREAT demand for bass gear here, so it'd be a good business opportunity.

    Who's interested?
     
  2. this wouldn't be a horrible idea :)
     
  3. I might be able to do something like that! Depending on Date/place of course.

    Yeah, it would be fun to do that. Maybe we could get someone to do some kind of "workshop" or "clinic" too. I think it'd be fun to see everyone's gear. I've never played a Cirrus or Sadowsky or other high end stuff. If I can get some positive or for sure replies, we could figure out a location.

    I was thinking Minneapolis/St. Paul for now since we could get a big building here and there's a few in the Metro area on TB.

    Would love to, but it's a little too far for me. Not toally out of the question, though.

    I think I would be down...
     
  8. Count me in!

    Possible place would include:

    American Guitar Boutique (In St. Paul, MN)
    They have pretty decent gear and a beautiful shop and I know they've done clinics here before.
    www.americanguitarboutique.com

    Brickhouse Music (In River Falls, WI -- about 20 minutes from St. Paul)
    They are a nice shop with a HUGE Fender Inventory. More importantly, they are ultra-nice folks and the bass guy, Clark, really knows his stuff. The place also has plenty of room! This would be my first choice.
    www.brickhousemusic.com

    Keep me in the loop on the planning!

    Hey I was just going to check out the American Guitar Boutique actually. I guess either would be fine with me. I'm definitely in, anyone else have a suggestion? Anyone know someone to do a clinic?

    Count me in on it. I get to the cities for a jam quite often.
    edit: I haven't been to the River Falls store, but would like to see thier inventory, and get a chance to try out some new stuff. Sounds like thst would be the place for the room to crank it up a bit.
    Can you guys PM me, and let me know where and when?? Defineately like to get in on the fun.

    sounds like a great idea ... I am sure it would be a good opportunity to learn a lot ...
     
  13. Another option might be Dave's Guitar in LaCrosse, WI. Big store, Fodera, EBMM, Aguilar dealer. I've heard great things about them.
     
  14. regardless of location, I would like to put in a vote for late spring/summer for the gtg--I would like to avoid driving through a blizzard if i can help it :)
     
  15. My home's not too far from you guys...;)
     
  16. +1
    Summer would be the only time I could get away.

    I will definitely PM everyone who shows an interest in this thread, and make a new one with the details. I was thinking spring will be a good time, too, but the sooner we plan it, the more people we can get and the better it will go. Plus we can work out all the little details ahead of time.

    Dave's Guitar in LaCrosse would definitly have enough space. I go there fairly often (whenever I'm in LaCrosse) and they do have a huge store. I also know for a fact that they have a room for rehersals and also have a collection of rare gui**** and amps upstairs, including a vintage blue sparkle tuck&roll cab and head set. Very Cool. I am in if it's close enough.

    I work at a Schmitt Music in a suburb of Minneapolis. The store is big and they have plenty of practice spaces we could use. If anyone is interested in having it here let me know. I really want to do this too even if it's not at Schmitt
