The Bucs have won 3 in a row and I think this team is learning how to win and believe in themselves. Although still open to force the ball on occasion, Jameis Winston has thus far proven to be an upstanding citizen, a team leader and most importantly, a winner. The defense was certainly impressive in holding the Hawks to only 5 points.   

I am also becoming a believer in these Cowboys - I've been waiting on the bubble to burst all year, but Prescott and Elliott (behind the best OL in football) continue to impress week after week. Even with a suspect D, this team is really special - I cannot think of a tandem of rookies that have performed this well - ever.

So many great songs, but this is one of the best songs ever written.

Happy NGD!

4 months to go and I'm starting to get a little excited. This event is the highlight of my year - I can't wait!

I have heard from Paul (normtheguitar) and he is a solid "maybe" - I guess that's better than a NO! Send him a message to pile on the pressure!

Also, another friend from England who is both a phenomenal drinker as well as an extraordinary bass player, Martin Raggett has promised to join us. Beamer - he plays in a touring band out of the UK - proper Heavy Metal - do a search for High Treason - it's right up your alley. Between killer bass licks, Martin will have you on the floor laughing with his stories and wry sense of humor.

Another friend of Zurf's - Garuchi has promised to make it as well. He has tried to make it the past couple of years, but health and car problems have held him back. If he's 1/2 as good as Zurf describes him, it will be a pleasure to have him join the group. I am confident he will fit right in, well, because Zurf said so!

I have also heard that Roscoe is back in town and doing well!!

Thanks Peatle - I just watched about 30 mins of their stuff and truly laughed out loud. I gotta get busy or I could spend all night watching - thats funny stuff

I never heard back from Whitewater and never received the package. Maybe it's time to start a new one?

I haven't done one of these in ages - I'd like to join if the timing is right

Been thinking specifically of Topdown ...

I believe he's on the west coast of Florida (Madeira Beach area?) but they've probably had major effect ... hope everyone's okay. The dear folk in Haiti have the seen the worst of it ... so sad.

It was largely a non-event here on the west coast. A little breezy and hardly any rain. Glad we dodged another. Thanks for the well wishes TF! I have family and friends in NC that got hammered - trees, down, flooding - they got a lot worse than I did!

Sounds interesting Bill. About an 8 hour drive for me - not too bad. Cabins look real nice. I'll keep an eye on this thread!

Yes, there is uber, a bus trolley and several free beach ride services (tips only)

Wyatt has offered to loan me his RV to park in driveway - I think we can squeeze it in. That should offer enough space for 4-6 more folks to crash. I just gotta get a power cord. So I can probably put up 8 or 10 folks in air conditioning, plus a few others on the porch / tents if need be.

Zurf - You and Toney are the only folks who have made it to every chordiestock. Of course there is room for you. It is still 6 months away, I'm praying your Dad is healed from whatever is ailing him by then!

I'd encourage travelers looking for a room to book early. March is peak of tourist season around here!

Nice - now this party is coming together. Had a mini gathering at my place tonight. 5 or 6 pickers and a singer or 2. Great fun. I sure hope you and the family can make it BGD, Topdawg and I had a great time at you place last May and I'd like to reciprocate. I can pretty much guarantee you'll have a good time!

If there is enough interest from travelers that need a hotel, I don't mind checking out a few and trying to get a group rate. Just let me know if you're planning on coming.

Congrats Dirty Ed! Sounds like you are working on building an entire orchestra!

It would be great to see you again beamer! Who else in in? Zurf - I know you wouldn't miss #5! UJB? BGD? - You guys have expressed interest in the past. I know it's still 6 months away, but do you think you can make it?

Any of you folks from across the pond plan on attending this year? Roger? Paul?
