Avast Thar Mateys,
There has been a slight change to the Maryland get together. Since only a few folks have responded, I have decided to slightly change the venue. Instead of the community clubhouse, I will host this grand event in my living room. If you look at the link I provided earlier, you will note that all of the buildings are numbered. I am in building number 1, unit C. When you come into the neighborhood, look for the black Corvette with US Navy plates from the State of Florida. Park your car opposite that Corvette. Walk back towards the Corvette and knock on the front door to Unit 1C. Bring your Zendrum and merge box and cables. You can leave the rest of your rig at home. The Tribal Wizard has graciously agreed to provide some of his equipment and of course I willl provide mine (such as it is).
Mr. Wizard and I thought it would be fun to have a "zendrum in the round" since my massive couch is L-shaped. We intend to record this joint jam session, and photos will be taken. There will also be a small amount of food (cold cuts and a vegetable plate), courtesy of me fine first mate.
All in all, I think this is the best solution. It will save us some money (as I won't have to rent the community clubhouse. However the downside is that we will also have to start somewhat earlier (about 1500) and end a little earlier (about 1930). On the upside, there are many fine eating establishments here on the island, and we will all be able to eat our fill at the end of the evening. A fine ending to a wonderful day.
Hopefully these minor changes will not inconvenience anyone.
Fair Winds and Following Seas,
P.S. THe first mate will require shoes off while in the living room.
