A great time indeed! Well done David! I really enjoyed meeting everyone and playing their awesome guitars. I'm still digging barbeque sauce out from under my nails though. :D

What an excellent get-together !! My hat is off to David, Hesh, Bob C and Crew, John Watkins, Jim Howell, all of the sponsors and all those who participated. A very enjoyable time. The venue was great, the instruments that many brought were outstanding and the demonstrations very informative.

It was a pleasure to meet many of our members face to face and exchange ideas and information.

Thanks again to all [clap]

It was a very enjoyable day. My hat is off to David Collins for organizing this, to Hesh and Mark for the work that they have put into it and to the Black Elks club of Ann Arbor for providing an excellent venue and a really good BBQ. I'll post some more pics after I get some chores done around the house. So, do it again? bliss [:Y:] [:Y:] [:Y:] [:Y:]

I must agree with all the above comments, it was too cool, lots of people together with one thing in mind, guitars and the building of them. The organizers did a wonderful job and the Elks put on good eats.

Lots of talking and picking, good info available, and a great bunch of people.

We must do this again!!!

Fred

It was a GREAT time. However, I'm wondering why there is any question that we'll do this again?! :D

Good job, everyone! I was daydreaming about all of the fun all the way home- I forgot to look at my gas gauge and almost ran out!
What a cool day, very memorable for me.

Well the 3 Bobs had a great time too. It was great meeting so many people in person. Beautiful instruments, great picking and great food. What more could a Bob ask for. Thanks so much for the invite. It was well worth the 6 hour drive.

PS Grumpy ain't very grumpy in person. Great picker too.
