Wow,
What a significant month. We had an earthquake, an eclipse, and the ham jam occuring on a Thursday. The first 2 were no big deal, but the third one it truly a once in a lifetime event and should not be missed by anyone. I am surprised that the major news networks did not pick up on this. I am in.
Who else?

Vermont Bill here....
I will be bringing the electronic drum set.  Ollie fixed the truck so we can go.  I am a little slower than normal, recovering from surgery, so guest drummers are a requirement.

Awesome Bill,
Johnny from Albany NY here. I am also hobbling around with a back injury. I am looking around for a relatively light but rockin guitar and amp combo to bring. Yes, again my equipment quality will exceed my playing ability, but I want to hang with everybody once more.
I probably won't set up a table this time to save my back, but if anyone wants to borrow anything please let me know.

Thanks to you, Rick, Mr. Mike, and all the others who keep this thing going.

Logistics question - have we determined which building we will be in? Both are great, but I really don't want to drag heavy stuff further than necessary.

Hi everyone!
Wow, Awesome Nearfest! Felt a bit strange doing the Jam on a Thursday night, but we still pulled it off...
I hope everyone had a great weekend! Thank you all for helping to bring together the Jam and making the Nearfest such a good time!
What a great room to have the Jam too! We are all so appreciative! Very easy to get equipment in & out. Clean & warm.
Special thanks Phil, Kelly & the Team!,  the audience, All that played & sang, and those that helped out!

I?m looking forward to the fall Nearfest! Have a great summer!

Sincerely,
Rick
