Sounds like another great weekend Joe. Sorry I won't be able to make it but I'll be there in spirit.( I know you didn't organize the event for a bunch of spirits but my work schedule won't permit me to be there in the flesh. :cry: Gotta hold that job. Otherwise I won't be able to afford to play the guitar!)
