Hey all, Dave H (from Alpha Music) and I have been conspiring to put together a GTG for the Hampton Roads/NE NC bassists, and it's time for a poll to decide the date. We've got a solid location - Holiday's at the Beach, a restaurant on 5th and Atlantic in Virginia Beach. It's a nice little spot, capacity of about 90 "shoulder to shoulder." It's an "L" shaped room, with a stage in the center, and should be perfect for us. They're currently only open on Fridays and Saturdays i nthe off-season, but we can rent the place for a Sunday GTG, and going by past responses, that seems to be the best bet. Since we'd be renting the place for a "private party," we'll be the only ones there. So anyway, the dates we're shooting for are October 19th or October 26th - please vote on what works best for you, and let us know if you're coming out - the more people, the better. Poll closes in one week, so we can make preparations, so get to it soon. I'm raffling off my latest project bass - a refinished and upgraded SX SPB-62. There will be a thread on this bass when it's complete - as of right now I'm still finishing it. The tickets for the raffle will be $20, you can buy as many as you like. All proceeds will go to the GTG. If we cover the $300 we need for rental, I'll give the rest to Dave and get some "door prize" type stuff. Thanks, and we'll see you there!
