Guys I have yet to attend a MGL meeting for one of two reasons - they were scheduled when I could not attend or they just never get scheduled........

David Collins and I were talking and we seem to be able to get 6 or so area guys (Ann Arbor) together nearly every month for a lunch and sometimes more.

My take on this is that in the past a great deal of the responsibility for the meetings was placed on Brian (who I met at HGF) and by doing so we make this a much bigger deal for him then it needs to be.

So with this in mind and if David agrees why don't we schedule a meeting for March in Ann Arbor. Anyone and everyone who wants to attend is welcome. And if David agrees we can have the meet at both his shop and my condo.

So I threw it out there - let's discuss?

Many thanks!!

Hesh,

I'd definitely be interested. A2 is only about an hour drive for me.

I'm in...and I have a feeling that my fellow Hoosier Joe White might be interested as well. A2 is a lot closer to me than Bryan's location anyway.

Cool!!!!

Let's just do it and make it happen.

To throw out a straw man date here how about Saturday March 8th - 12:00 noon.

Of course our pal David will have to agree to this too or you guys are going to be sitting around my place playing my stinking guitars and be forced to pet the dang dog....... :D

It's great to see the interest!!!!! CLAP, CLAP, CLAP, CLAP :lol:

Great!!! We have 7 so far in less then 24 hours so this will go well.

I am off to David's shop and will clear the date with him and then we will be good to go.

BTW my understanding of the Michigan Guild of Luthiers is that you don't have to live in Michigan so everyone is invited.

OK folks I spoke with David Collins of Collins Lutherie and we are on for Saturday March 8th at noon!

This should be a very fun day. Please let us know if you plan to attend and updates will be provided as the date nears.

Thanks! :P

I'd love to be there Bro( Hey isn't that a man's bra :shock:)! :lol:

With the price of gas it's certainly cheaper to fly! :lol:
Funds are tight! I'd have to go rob a couple of liquor stores and I don't do that any more! :D :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks for putting this together Hesh.

Yah, thanks Hesh and David! I tried to spark some interest back last fall, but would not have been able to host a meeting. Oh sure, the location is good (middle of the mitten), but my shop is at a standstill, and with no heat it's a bit chilly! :shock: I still have a bunch of hammers from a piano I disassembled. Would anyone be interested, I'd be happy to bring them along. :) Plus, it's about all I'd be able to contribute. ;)

Cool, let me know as soon as you get it figured out. I'll try my best to make it, but if I can't I'll leave the key under one of the those fake dog crap key holders out by the sidewalk. :mrgreen:
