Topic: CHORDIESTOCK VI - 3/16/18 - 3/18/18

One of the "Original Chordiestockers", in fact the individual possibly most responsible for this annual gathering, recently sent me a message inquiring about the dates for next year's event. Sounds like he is planning to make another trip across the pond! I thought I'd post the dates here for anyone else who needs to make plans. Every year has been better than the last, so I hope lots of chordie folks can make it and we can continue that trend!

More details and FB invites to follow as we get closer. The guy in question is in the photo below - He's the one who isn't me. smile

Re: CHORDIESTOCK VI - 3/16/18 - 3/18/18

We are about 2 months away. I made an event page on FB and invited everybody I knew on there, but I thought I'd bump this up for the chordie folks who aren't on FB. Let us know if you plan on making it! Dirty Ed?

JoeyX3 - Tampa Bay Airport (TPA) and St. Pete / Clearwater airport are both very convenient. I typically make a pick up and drop off at TPA on Thursday and Monday and uber and shuttles are readily available. I live on the beach, so there are many lodging options. Of course, I will also be happy to put you up here on an air mattress or spare bed if I have one.

Neo - I have hosted travelers from England and Portugal. If you ever made it, you would get the prize for most distance traveled! It's a long way to, but I can assure you a great time!

Re: CHORDIESTOCK VI - 3/16/18 - 3/18/18

It's on my calendar. I'll probably have to drag along the work computer and do a little work between evening sessions. Do I have a piece of floor again, or should I start looking for options? I'm good either way.

Re: CHORDIESTOCK VI - 3/16/18 - 3/18/18

LOL - love your names and descriptions Zurf! That "Sullen English Guy" is Martin Raggett - he's a great guy, actually very funny in that British sarcastic funny sort of way. He is an exceptional bass player for a heavy rock band with a degree of success in Europe - check out High Treason on utube - I bet Beamer would love it. He has been here for the past 6 weeks - just left on Monday.

The  "Handsome Guy who sings and plays unreasonably well" is Greg Milo. He should be back this year. And Mr Somethingorother is Jeff Graves - another fantastic player with an unbelievable guitar collection - he has a friend opened a used guitar store and I joked he started his business with Jeff's hand me down's alone. No joke - I visited his house and there was an entire room filled with guitars that were on his "ready to let go" list.

Re: CHORDIESTOCK VI - 3/16/18 - 3/18/18

I want to go. I doubt it though.  It doesn`t look like it is in the cards. Hopefully things will change.

Right now I'm in a waiting game Jeff.  My daughter in St. Cloud won't be around to visit that weekend so I can't make a "two-fer" trip out of it.  Also, our "Foothill Folk Society" group has done a yearly winter concert at Ohio University each year in the late January-early February time frame,  but this year it will be sometime in March.  The university hasn't given us a confirmed date yet so we're waiting to hear from them.  Hopefully I'll know more in the next couple weeks.  Right now the odds are pretty slim that I'll make it to Chordiestock.

Re: CHORDIESTOCK VI - 3/16/18 - 3/18/18

Well sorry to hear that DE, but I understand - it's a long trip. Still hope you can make it!

In other news.... Paul has confirmed he's gonna make it! All the way from England, one of the chordiestock originals, the man with 12 fingers (at least), Normtheguitar will be here! That alone is worth the price of admission folks!

Damn - I'm gonna have to put new strings on the 12er..... Or I'll make Paul do it himself like last time big_smile

For those of you not on FB - I have put everyone on notice that we are going back to the original campfire style acoustic jams - no amplification!

Re: CHORDIESTOCK VI - 3/16/18 - 3/18/18

Sadly I will not be able to make it; mind you it is perhaps as well, otherwise Paul and I would end up fighting over the 12er. lol

Re: CHORDIESTOCK VI - 3/16/18 - 3/18/18

Beamer, now that you are confirmed, you should persuade Jerome to come along, pick up Bald Guitar Dude in Dallas, and plan on a short autograph signing at Tampa when you arrive.  Surely you guys with guitars will attract some sort of attention strolling through the terminal.   big_smile

Re: CHORDIESTOCK VI - 3/16/18 - 3/18/18

Glad to hear it Beamer! I am making my airport run on Thursday, so I won't be able to get you on Friday. I think the cheapest option is the Airport Super Shuttle where you can get a ride for about $30. Uber is also an option, but I don't know how much it costs.

I should be able to get you back to the airport on Monday though - I plan on making a trip mid afternoon, depending on everyone's flight times. Zurf is departing at 4:30ish, close enough to your flight. See ya in March!
