Danny G:
There was a pretty good showing of SlideMeisters at the Garden State Festival.

I just wondered, how many of the group are planning to attend Buckeye ?

I think it's pretty sad that out of 272 people who claim to be harmonica enthusiasts, only 4 or maybe 5 are planning to attend the Buckeye State Harmonica Festival and only 1 is planning on attending the Virginia Harmonica Festival ?

Give'er time Danny :)
Gotta remember too that a lotta guys might not even come over to the BanterMeister part.  Hey, you know I wouldn't miss it; specially since it's the easiest one for me to make, just 180 miles down the road.  Besides all that, Bigjak sez I get to play on stage this year. Whoo-Hoo!

(nervous already ;)

Danny...I think you are jumping the gun a bit by assuming people aren't planning to attend Buckeye.  I don't post every day ...and it looks as though you just put this up here on the 9th?  I just found it now...and only by accident.  My computer has a disconcerting habit of knocking me out of rooms I'm in...so I've voted.  Now you're up to 12.

I go to Buckeye.  Traipse my butt all the way from NY.  This will be my 3rd in a row.  And I guarantee a lot more than 12 folk from here will be there.  I know some players who don't post on any of the lists, but read them ... there are still some people who might read the board but don't post either, or fill out polls.  Just how things work.  I'm pretty sure Wally and Val Peterman will be in attendance, just to name two.  I know lots of people from Harp-L who will be there....many of whom are also chromatic players.  But you do have to leave a poll up for a bit, to get input.  As well, even if people want and intend to go, this still might be a wee bit early to finalize their plans.

 I'm committing myself this far ahead, but still haven't made my plane reservations and/or booked the Convention because there are too many personal issues to take care of first...and for the last two years couldn't do it until practically 3 weeks before, because of my many pets and trying to figure out the logistics.  But I'm sure it'll be a good turnout, you'll see.  :)

As far as Virginia is concerned... never been, don't know much about it at all....it's much too far away distance wise for me to ask my spouse to drive me there when it's not remotely an interest of his...and since I always go to SPAH and hope to maybe finally get to the GSHC this year as well, I don't think it's fair to expect everyone to attend every harmonica happening, since financially I for one will really be stretched extremely thin attending the others.

On the 9th, I wrote a long message dineating each and every detail of why I do or don't go to the festivals. Fortunately, I went over the 4660 byte limit, and it died in my computer. That's good because no one want's to hear a cry baby like me. But here's some distances to ponder:
Denver = 2186 ground miles (1668 by air) Must go by air.
Detroit = 1273 ground miles (drove it from Pgh, won't do it from here)
Chicago= 1274 ground miles (same)
Dallas  =  1272 ground miles (drove it once, won't happen again)
Kansas City = 1271 ground miles (didn't go)
Paramus = 1270 ground miles (WON't drive that far on the east coast)
St. Louis = 1112 ground miles (never drove it, always flew)
Columbus = 1111 ground miles (ALWAYS drive)
Williamsburg = 971 ground miles (drove it once)
Memphis = 848 ground miles (drove it but from Pgh, which was only 565)
Birmingham = 647 ground miles (can be done in one day)
If I take the wife, it would normally be cheaper to drive, but when you factor in a motel each way and two days of driving, a fest has to be at least 4 days if it is far away. There's MUCH MUCH more, but I'll let it go.
