Topic: 2013 Mid-Atlantic U.S. Gathering of Pickers
With the shorter days and colder nights descending upon us, I am already thinking of long evenings along a river or creek, campfires burning, and friends picking songs, the pfffffft of a can opening.
Identify yourself and speak up if this sounds like fun to you.
I am thinking of a long weekend at a tenting campground nearby fishing. There are many. I'm hoping also to find a spot where we would be able to be a bit secluded and not worry over-much about quiet hours. Dirty Ed doesn't even get properly warmed up until about 2AM.
1. Identify yourself if you're interested and think there's half a chance you might come. (no commitments at this point)
2. Identify your general location. Portion of a state is good enough (Eastern NC, Northern VA, Central NY, etc.).
3. Identify the best month. I'm leaning towards the second half of June but things could wind up being any time in the summer.
I'm making no promises to anyone. This may happen, it may not. If it happens, it will happen at my convenience first, with other considerations coming in second. Sorry to be blunt about that, but I've done this sort of thing before and folks get kind of crazy with thinking every request is a demand. I'm open to requests to make things more convenient and comfortable for others, but at some point I have to make decisions and stick to them. It would be nice if I can get this nailed down by the end of December as some folks have to put in their leave requests at the beginning of the year.
