Topic: CHORDIESTOCK V - 3/16/17 - 3/19/17

September is here, so we re now roughly 6 months away from the 5th annual assemblage of wacky chordians in Madeira Beach, FL.  As always, it will take place the weekend after the clocks spring forward and hosted by yours truly. Every year has gotten bigger and better and I expect no different this year. Save the date and make your plans now! Who is in?

Hey Jeff!!

If you've got room for me to crash somewhere I'll try to arrange my spring visit to my daughter in St. Cloud for that week.

I want to read my own water, choose my own path, write my own songs

Sounds good Dirty Ed - There is always room for you - you'll sleep pretty much anywhere!

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

Ill see what my spring time off is like (I may not have any days left IDK) and what kind of budget I have by then.  Really want to come again!  I miss you and Z and the rest of the gang.

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?

Re: CHORDIESTOCK V - 3/16/17 - 3/19/17

I will be there with the Cowboy, Keith Fulp, and a truck load of equipment. And some new songs. And some brown liquor. I am looking for a condo near Topdown's house, so if anyone wants to split one with me and Cowboy for Thurs Fri Sat Sun , I will make the arrangements. Dirty Ed, you are welcome to bunk with us if we find a bunkhouse. And I will have Nashville tuned Martin guitar with me, DE,

Re: CHORDIESTOCK V - 3/16/17 - 3/19/17

Well I've thought I was coming to the last three.  Assuming my wife isn't having any more babies in the next 1/2 year I'll be there!

Re: CHORDIESTOCK V - 3/16/17 - 3/19/17

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.

I might instead bring some musician friends and rent a vrbo by your house

Re: CHORDIESTOCK V - 3/16/17 - 3/19/17

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

Re: CHORDIESTOCK V - 3/16/17 - 3/19/17

I'll put it on the calendar, but as much as I love the FLamily, my Dad comes first.  If all is well with Dad, I'll be there. 

Hoping I can have some floor space again, or a spot in the yard for a tent.

Re: CHORDIESTOCK V - 3/16/17 - 3/19/17

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!

Sounds like a good plan - I'm in !  We'll probably need to take turns being the designated driver from Jeff's back to the condo smile

Re: CHORDIESTOCK V - 3/16/17 - 3/19/17

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 figure out a power cord.

Re: CHORDIESTOCK V - 3/16/17 - 3/19/17

5 months away. Current chordian roster:

IN: Zurf, Dirty Ed, Topdawgz, Wlbaye and Liz , BGD, Southpaw

Maybe: Beamer, UJB

No response: Normtheguitar

Locals / previous attendees: Cowboy, Paddy, Bee, Roger, Wyatt, Pepper, Jeremy, The Steve, Natalie and I'm sure there will be lots of others 

Out sad Roger

Also have heard from Per who could not commit, but assures me he is going to try to make it!

Add your name to the list!

ETA: - Of course the headliner will be Roscoe Jones! (lord willin')

Re: CHORDIESTOCK V - 3/16/17 - 3/19/17

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!!
