I talked to Dave a few days ago. He said he had a good time at the Keystone event. Dave MacMillan also was there and said that the group attending was about the same. It seems that Dave was locked out of the HO for some reason.

Hello all!
The Keystone Bash went well. We had a few emergency cancelations, but I was very happy with the crowd that showed. We had the use of four rooms to practice and jam, and when looking at other hotels, this is a BIG plus. We have a contract for next year at the same place, March 20-22.
I've been looking for other hotels, less expensive sleeping rooms, but when you factor in the quality of the Shawnee Inn, the amount of jamming space we were provided,(at no additional cost to me) the cost runs about the same, since I would have to then charge registration fees and usually for less open meeting rooms.
I will work on getting better advertising and looking at better promotion of the event. It's a lot of work, and I thought about not having it again, but it's worth the effort.
Mike H. we missed you and Birtles!
David C. was great on 4 and 5 string! I posted some pictures and video on the web site, but I'm not the best with a cell phone video.

Annie: I will try to make it next year. I missed seeing everyone. The year before was a blast. Regards Mike H.
