I'm getting excited to see Furthur tonight in Eugene. Love to pedal over to the Cuthbert and enjoy a nice eve under the stars. Weather is looking good and the kids are with the ex, so I'm on my own. Who's gonna be there? Pete? TS? I think I'm heading to Cornucopia on 5th st after the gig to see a friend's band (Tom Wait's-ish type of band) and it's free. Other afterparties? Oh, and I have an extra Sunday to sell at cost, if anyone's interested. Enjoy the ride!

I sould be down there by 3pm or so today (Fri), and am staying at The LaQuinta fri/sat, on the edge of Alton Baker Park.
I have tix for Fri/Sat, going home Sunday after check out-time.
I packed a 6-string Strat with a practice amp, and an acoustic. If anyone wants to talk Jerry-licks for a while, let me know (Fri maybe or definitely Saturday day-time).
Give a ring any time for any Ru-Kind meet-ups in the lot (by the Furthur Bus???), or inside the show.
Pete B.

I am not packing any rain gear! :hail:

Very daring of you, Pete!

Some great after-parties happening, notably Cast Of Clowns (at WOW Hall Friday night , and then Sat & Sun at some other place that escapes me at the moment.) They will have Greg Anton, Robin Sylvester and Jeff Pevar w/ them this outing. Maybe some special guests?

I'm not going, but have fun all who are.

I still have your number from last year. I'll try to give you a call inside the show again and maybe we can drink a brew before they start!

WasTS saying it was bold of you giving out your phone number or not to bring rain gear?? :P

Hey I am pickin acoustic with a bass playin' friend at the picnic benches across the street from the Eugene La Quinta in Alton Baker Park. We'll probably kick it around from 12:30 for an hour or two or so I guess.
I heard from GratefulFred! Hope to see him today to.

Next year maybe we can get a few more pickers out there.

It was a really fun weekend. I'm pretty spent today though! It was great meeting up with you Jared, glad we were able to connect. Wish I could have made it over Sat morning to jam with you and Pete.

WOW, Eugene was great fun. The weather was wonderful, the venue and the shows were great, and it was great fun to meet up with Pete B, Tony and Jarad and play a few tunes. Super fun. I look forward to our next meeting.

Really nice to hook up with some fellow RUKINDERS! Best Regards,Fred
