Got an e-mail with an invitation to what might be a nice event, with the date and the name of the venue, but NOT the town or state it's in.

Only took a couple of minutes to cross check the name of the venue and find out where it is.
But, come on, folks. The BHO covers some FIFTY nations, and adding a city and state might be really nice.

Come to the bluegrass jam at The General Store. It's on a Saturday of each month. Can't wait to see you!

Just go half way down the road and turn left.

I got the same invitation, Mike, and also thought it odd that I had to chase links to figure out where it was being held.

Is it at the campground? Then turn left before you get to the fire department.

I see print ads for stores and restaurants that do the same thing, no town, no address.

One thing I really dislike about Facebook is that many posts, especially dealing with lost dogs and children, never mention the location. I, also, got an invitation to a Minstrel Banjo event where I guess the poster assumes everybody in the world knows where it will be held.

My other pet peeve is when people post about missing children and when I back-check, the child was reported missing and was found safe, often many months previous.

I usually notice such things, but since there's a very high likelihood that it doesn't apply* to me, I just pass it off as another example of the Peter Principle.   And as my mammy tried to instill in us: "It takes all kinds." 

Otoh, if it's an event I'm interested in, I'll make an effort to find the info, and there's a good chance that if I do go, I'll mention it to an organizer along with a comment to the effect that "This better be good, considering the extra effort I had to put in."    

Edit: * =  I'm just talking about events in general.... as for a personal (?) invitation, I'll cross that bridge if/when.  sad

Just type "banjo event" into your phone's gps map. Go wherever it tells you to go. Problem solved!

People's first try at something usually has holes in it.

I see this all the time in the last few years, on posters for concert events. I just blows my mind. How much proof reading  of the creator or at least a friend- or common sense does it take to put an address, contact phone or email address, a venue name or a TOWN!!!
It's strangely comforting to see here, that it's common in your towns too.
By the way, I wish to announce here for the lst time, the most exciting banjo event you will ever have the opportunity to attend (and for free) on my own planet!
