    Texas Bass Gathering: Now With Photos

    Every year or so, the wife takes off for South America and leaves me to my own devices for a week or two. This time is once again approaching.

    I'm thinking to do this the weekend of March 12-13th, whichever date works best for the majority is okay with me. Friday or Saturday? If you're in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, consider yourself invited. People generally bring food and maybe beer but it isn't necessary. I have some extra beds and a futon in case you don't have a designated driver and feel the need to drink of the demon rum.

    I'd like to get a reasonably accurate head-count. Last time, we had a couple of guitarists and a drummer, too. I'll work on that again this year. Sometimes I can talk the Mothership into sending little bits of goodies, bass strings and perhaps a shirt or poster or two.

    Who's in?

    I'm in Highland Village, just north of Flower Mound, not far from Lewisville or Denton.

    Hey, Jack!
    I just noticed on my band Stormbringer's March web-site calendar that there's a "Private Event" listed for Sat. March 13th. Did you hire us and nobody told me?

    We're thinking - we being me and Rex - that Saturday would be peachy. Rex might come in on Friday, so we'd of course feel like death warmed over by Saturday, but we know how to do that.

    Jack, funny enough my gf is on business in Texas next week but I wouldn't let her in if I was you, she's been instructed to knock you unconscious with a rolling pin, and steal all your basses (Joke)

    But yeah she is there on business for 3 days. I don't think she'd have the courage nor the time.

    Have fun!

    Well, she's very welcome. We're old and married and toothless and pretty boring, but she really IS welcome. What part of Texas? It's a big place.

    Not too many people have played a Big Al 5 with flats!

    Beanz, my email is bovinehost(at)tx(dot)rr(dot)com for directions and details and whatnot.

    That goes for the rest of you, too.
