SPAH Tulsa Convention Attendance
« on: April 03, 2022, 09:31:58 PM »
I am curious who is planning to attend the convention this year? I live in Oklahoma, so am giving it some consideration. I don’t plan to attend the whole event though.

I was set and primed to attend my very first SPAH in Charlotte a few years ago when SOMETHING caused it to be cancelled.  My disappointment was palpable.  I'm thinking OK is too far for me to travel this year, so I'm holding out for a return to somewhere closer to SC.

The wife and I plan to attend.  It is a 12-hour drive of over 750 miles from our home.  Typically, the last two times we went to the Tulsa SPAH we took two days to travel to and one day to drive back home.  My wife has more fun than I do, and she does not play the harmonica.

My distance to Tulsa is analogous to driving from Barcalona espania to Krakova Poland.
It is 1330 mi. (2133 km).
A.J., on the other hand is 980 mi. (1307 km) from Tulsa
My distance to Charlotte would be 666 mi (888 km)
And my house to A.J. is 1200 mi (1600 km)
A lot has changd in the 4 years that I attended the last spah
1... If I have to go through Hartshorn airport (Atlanta), I won't go
2... With missing organs, I'm not sure how many hours flight time I can endure
3... My days of driving those distances (except maybe Charlotte) have passed
4... If I have to take Delta airlines, I won't go
5... Mostly I go for the camaraderie. If certain people aren't going to be there, it will affect my decision
6... Most of my favorite people are either gone or unable to function well enough to attend

It may be the end of an era..for me.

I and my employees at 'My Cushion' are appreciative of your support over the years.
To this end I have opened a new endeavor. It is called: 'My Bodega'
Along with my famous 'My moccasins' and 'My Wellingtons', I am also placing the following items on our shelves.
They are: 'My Peshmina', My Sou Western', My Hoodie', and 'My Macinaw', and 'My Cravat'.  lolol.

I won't be there this time but hopefully next time.  If there is a hybrid option to this SPAH, I'll probably be able to tune in!

Not as cool as being in a hotel overrun with harmonica players.

Change of plans, not going.
Too bad.
