    OK, in a feeble attempt to bring some sort of organization to this upcoming event, here's a list of stuff we'll probably need. Please post here if you can take responsibility for anything on the list. I want to keep it simple on the food front, because my kitchen isn't very big and I think we'll be fine with snacks and drinks until we're ready to order dinner. We'll probably get started around 1:00, and we can go till it's time to hit the Somber Reptile for JT's gig.

    I'll provide soft drinks, plastic cups, paper plates, and napkins

    We'll have three rigs (mine plus Bassmonkeee and Soybase are bringing theirs) which is plenty

    We need:
    3-4 bags of ice - I have a cooler to put it in

    Chips, pretzels, etc.

    Folding chairs - probably need 6 to be safe

    Instrument stands (we'll have plenty if those who posted in the other thread and said they could bring stands come through).

    Name tags

    Beer, if anybody other than me wants to drink some. The last couple of these have been decidedly non-alcoholic affairs, which is fine, but since I don't have to drive to get to this one I'll probably have a couple. I have a few in my fridge, but if anybody wants to join me, we could probably use a 12-pack.

    That's about all I can think of, except for lots of basses. No need to list them here, but the more the merrier. PM me if you need directions.

    I can swing a few chairs (lemme check to see just how many), some munchables, and a stand.

    I might be able to rustle up some nametags, due to my mom being a teacher (supply room, here I come... :D)

    I'm 19 and I'll be showing up, so I'm not sure they really mind.

    I can bring probably about two dozen stands, and I'll look for the two folding chairs. Did you check on local hotels, Muggs? And yes, thank you very much for hosting this!

    I'll also bring the digicam and hopefully I can find the camcorder.

    JT...what will the cover be at the Somber Reptile? You did say it was All Ages or 18+, right? I need to know how much cash to bring and how much to charge.
  9. I'll cover a couple of chairs

    I might have a new bass finished by then so that's all I'm bringing. I'll have a double rack available for use.

    I can also cover the name tags for sure - Brendan, leave the others for the school system!

    You forgot to mention the snake wine....you ARE bringing the snakewine, right?!? :bassist:

    So, is the plan to order some pizza at some point, or something? I'll bring some soft drinks with me, too.

    Oh, and I'll give everyone who comes to my gig Friday night a cookie. :D
  11. I'll bring a 12 pack and some chips. Did someone say snakewine! :eek:
    Where are you playing Friday? Is that this Friday? I sure could use a cookie :D
    I will also try to bring my camera again. For those interested, I still have the pictures from the one before last on my website. Pictures of Atlanta TB get together

    Yeah, that's the plan. Fellini's Pizza is right up the street and there are plenty of other take-out and delivery options close by.

    Are we Brits invited too? ;)

    What ecactly is it thats happening by the way, is it a large meeting organised by muggsy of TB forumites? What happens at the meetings, is it a communal event with lots of bass playing then food+drink?

    Are the name tags for equipment, chairs etc, or to label people with eg if I was there I'd walk round with a 'yoshi' sticker on my face?

    We need one in the UK, yorkshire area :p I was 18 a few months ago so I'm able to go even if an age limits present.
  14. Mmmmmmm, Fellini's!

    I'm down for one of Bassmonkeee's cookies!


    I'm bringing three single stands of various configurations, a Rockstand 5 stand, several interesting and articulate instruments that have made the trip before...and who knows what else I may be able to wheedle out of Bass Central with a "weekend pass"


    Muggsy, I will be happy to pitch in with any last minute necessities for food/drink/etc, just let me know on Friday night/Saturday morning.

    ...oh, and I'll once again pass on the snakewine! :eek: :spit:

    We have actually had two TB UK get togethers. A group of us met up for pizza and then saw Steve Lawson and Michael Manring at the bass centre in Nov. The second one was in Jan when Tsal (tony) came over from Finland and 3 TBUK'ers took him around London bass shops and a noodle bar in Leicester Square.

    IMHO the Atlanta get togethers work because there are enough people in Atlanta to make it work. With the UK lot, London seems to be the best place (most of us travel a bit to get there).

    Yeah, I'll be happy to run out and get stuff day-of-gettogether, too.

    The place I'm playing on Friday, March 7th is all ages, and no cover. Great menu and drink selections, too.

    The website is www.birdisonthesquare.com

    And, it has the address and a map, too.

    Ditto for me, early afternoon Friday is my ETA in Hot'lanta. Planning on trying to get into Decatur to my crash pad (aka Casa de Siff - THANKS Dave & Renae!!! :D) before the afternoon insanity commences on the highways & byways of that fair city.

    Sadly, due to circumstances beyond my control, Mrs. Gard-baby-momma will not be attending this time. It's a damn shame too, cuz she had a wonderful time last trip. Well, if everyone crossed their fingers, chants in unison, and thinks happy thoughts, maybe she'll make the next one.

    Really lookin' forward to the whole thing: bassmonkeee's gig, the get-together, and JT's gig...
