Arrgghhhhh, where be me manners!!!  Whilst I realize that the chances are slimmer than a shiv to the ribs, I would hereby like to formally invite David, Kim and the fair wench Gina to me humble abode for the Maryland Get Together.  I would be honored if you would join Mr. Wizard and me for this grand event.  I humbly apologize for the short notice.  I will ensure that me first mate flogs me over the capstan for certain.

This sounds like a blast.  If it wasn't 1500 miles, I'd be there!

Avast Thar Lass,

Avast Thar Mateys,

     There still be time to sign on for the Maryland Get Together on Saturday, 24 Feb 2007.  Shiver me timbers, it will be a fine time.  Even Mr. Wizard (John Emrich) will be there.  Just let  the old Pyrate know you are coming, so me first mate will have a head count.  To use an old nautical phrase, be there or be square.

Avast Thar Mateys,

     The First Maryland Get Together is now over.  For those of you scurvy dogs that didn't care to join us, I will have to confine you to the brig or to Davey Jone's Locker (and believe me his sweaty gym socks are rather rank by now). 

    It was great.  Mr. Wizard gave us all a copy of his old CD.  He also showed off his new laptop.  Mr. Push Start (aka Mike Render) brought Official Ohio Buckeye goodies to share.

     Me first mate created a table of food worthy of a Pyrate Crew (minus the Grog). 

     We all learned from each other.  It was a very good sharing experience and one that I hope will be repeated.  (David and Kim; are you taking notes). 

     I will be posting pictures in a day or so.

     All I can say is, it was a gathering of a great bunch of guys and a good time was had by all.  Ya shoulda been here!

I would like to thank Pyrate and his better half for openning their home to us.  This first official Zendrummer day was a blast.

Things learned:
1. Michael is truly a unique musician with a real gift for spontaneous vocals.

2. Mark has some of the fastest fingers I've seen in a long time.

3. Pyrate is a one of a kind, a true champion for everything Zendrum.

This was a lot of fun and I hope that it opens doors for more Zendrum get togethers in the future.

Good Evening All !

To echo everyone else a good time was had by all. Many thanks, to Pyrate and his wife for their hospitality. John thanks for the kind words on my playing.

What did I learn...?

- When I get the money BFD and a MUSE Receptor!!  To see and hear it up close does not do the videos justice.

-  I learned how to "lock" the Zendrum so you don't accidentally change your trigger settings.  Hold both "arrow" buttons at the same time until a red LED come on.

- No two playing styles are alike but all have the same intentions of delivering a musical message.

- Last but not least... it need to happen AGAIN!!

Tonight was very informal but very informative.  With greater numbers we can all benefit and learn ALOT MORE!  Mike drove down from Ohio, so... enough said.

Anyway, just my $.02 Take care and stay safe, Mark!

I learned that driving home through Pennsylvania can be dangerous. I hiot a patch of ice in the mountains. I did a desperate 360 trying not to go over the side into the valley. I pulled the car out of the spin only to have it do another 180 the other direction. The cement divider stopped me from going further. I am very shaken, but not hurt. The poor Render-Mobile has seen better days.
