Of course, I'm bringing my #1 Jerrycaster - I have to with its builder (Phil Jacoby) joining us this year. In fact, I may bring both J-casters ... and my Tele (can't very well travel sans one's Tele, can one?). And of course I'll be instigating the Dead jam again this year.
Here're some updates:
The event will be in a huge clubhouse - a nice big venue with a piano, plenty of seating, a kitchen, and for any who wanna join the polar bear club (in NC, they call April weather arctic-like
), a swimming pool. The address of the clubhouse is
6333 Kit Creek Road
Morrisville, NC 27560
and you can get driving directions at http://www.kittscreek.com/location/
Our host, Bill, is not soliciting donations, however, it does cost him out of pocket for the clubhouse, BBQ, liquor, etc., so while donations are absolutely not required, it would be a nice gesture to throw him a small
one at the event.
As usual, Bill is playing coy as to the official start time:
The official start time is when the bbq is officially done!! LOLOLOL It will all be kicking off around noon I would guess and be in full swing by 1 - 2. I think it was around 1:30 when we took the group photo last year????
