    Let's not wait a year for the next GTG.

    There's a new bass shop opening up in Alexandria this fall and I know the owner quite well. ;) I think it would be a great place to have a GTG so how about one around late Oct/early Nov?

    Anyone interested?

    EDIT:

    The GTG is scheduled for Nov 5th. It's planned for start around 2PM and will go on until ???. After we close up shop, the plan is to go hang in Old Town Alexandria and/or Del Ray for drinks.

    If you're wondering whether or not to bring that heavy cab of yours, there will be plenty of amplification available. Feel free to bring your gear for us to check out. I'll be bringing some food and drink, but feel free to bring some as well in case there's a shortage. As far as booze, if you're over 21 and not gonna get wasted and drive, it's cool.

    It's gonna be at 3143 Mt Vernon Ave Suite 8A, Alexandria VA. The office suite has a sign over it that says Harrison Gypsum. It's in the back of the building, and since it's a weekend there should be enough parking in the lot. It's still a work in progress, and won't have a whole lotta space, but it should do.

    I might also be setting up a Roland V-Drum kit, and maybe a guitar rig so we can jam.

    Keep checking this thread for details, and just reply on here to RSVP.

    At this point, it looks like early Nov on a Saturday. I know that Sunday has been the tradition, but it's football season.

    I wouldn't worry about it.

    I'm just bringing a stick and an old telephone cord...

    It may seem lacking...but believe me, I make up for it in heart

    :smug:
