    As mentioned in this thread, I have secured a venue for the "2011 Upper Seattle Area TalkBass Bass Expo".

    when: Sunday August 7, 2011
    time: 1pm until ???
    where: Pacific Rim Resturaunt - Best Western, Marysville

    You take I-5 to exit 199.
    At the bottom of the ramp you take a left and go underneath the freeway.
    As the road curves to the right the Best Western in on the left. Kinda hard to miss. The Rim the the big building to the left. As you pull into the front parking lot you will be able to see the stage door for load-in.

    The stage in the banquet room is kinda small but there will be plenty of space in the room to show off your basses, amps and gear.

    There will be a PA and backline onstage (yes including drum kit) if folks want to jam. The guys in my band will also be there if anyone wants to jam some blues or classic rock.

    Feel free to bring your family, friends and other musicians.

    The Rim has good food and reasonable drink prices.
    Since it is a banquet room in a resturaunt all ages are welcome. But NO alcohol to anyone under 21!There will be a bartender there but I'm not sure about waitress service. If I get enough RSVPs I'll get them to supply a waitress.

    The room will seat a couple of hundred people so let's make this the biggest TB-GTG yet.

    I'll be there if there's any way possible, and I'll bring along whatever basses I have completed at the time

    right now that's looking like at least one M-Series 5, an M-Series 4, a VRB-PJ5, a M-Series 4 lefty, and possibly a Heritage Tribute '55 5-string ... but ya never know, I might even have a 6-string thin string or two ready to show-off as well :cool:

    depending on how much CNC time I'll have the first part of Aug, I might also have several roughed bodies of various configurations and states of post-CNC detailing

    all the best,

  7. I have yet to make one of these but have wanted to. This one is much closer to home so I'm going to do my best to make it.

    I may be able to make it.
  16. Wanna trade places?..... Again!?....

    I'm in Amarillo of all places. :atoz: I could stand Austin or Forth Worth area. But Amarillo! C'mon..... My wife and I both hate it here, but the money is really good, so we're toughing it out while we search for something back home. Sadly, the job market competition is too stiff there and the money isn't as good in either of our careers. Strange, I know. I miss my old spots. I used to stop at Aces three or four nights a week for a beer. My wife and I used to swing by Angel of the Winds for some Katies Kitchen for a late night snack. I'd fish the North fork of the Stilly by Deer Creek in Oso during the Salmon runs. Great... Now I'm homesick again.
  17. Bump'n this to the homepage. Wish I could be there for it. Maybe next year :meh:

    Hopefully there is still interest in this.
    No one has posted for several days but I'm still hoping for a good turnout.

    Perhaps a link in some sigs would help spread the word?

  19. I know, kind of surprised there's no more response. I talk to a few guys on here from time to time that are in the Mount Vernon, Stanwood, Arlington area. I'll link them over here in case they just haven't caught this on the homepage yet. TTT Bump!
