Unfortunately I won't be able to attend this year. Other commitments got in the way. Hopefully next year!

Getting geared up for the trek to the island this weekend. Making a list so I can check it twice.

Was hoping to get my 2 yr-old spiral horn (cornucopya) project done for this year, but it is still "in work". I did have a chance to upgrade the crossover on my DR1 bookshelf speakers, and will bring a pair of each (original and upgrade) for comparison. Might be interesting to see (or hear) impressions from others.

Looking forward to seeing everyone Friday afternoon!

I'll be tagging along with Dave and John and hope to bring something interesting. I'm afraid that I spent valuable time getting the house fixed up and painted rather than building the all-important Stereo gear! Oh well, it's finally finished (well sort of...) after approximately 40 years. I really was getting tired of having to sleep under my pickup truck...

See you all this weekend,
TerryO

Id also like to say how much i appreciate the huge effort Chris has made in getting the place ready for FEST this year. Being a gimp, i have done very little and he has heroically filled in for my lack of capability.

Kudos to Chris!!

thanks, Dave - it's been a bit of a juggling act, and hopefully a couple of early morning traction sessions this week will help stretch me back into some kind of usable condition

those Dark and Stormy's can't come soon enough

Something that I don't think we've done often enough with these events is to attempt a roll call, as well as recruit volunteer kitchen duty. As you might well imagine, Dave's mobility will continue to be constrained for some time yet -he'll likely want to be parked on a couch somewhere - either on the driveway or upstairs.

Ruth has already been run off her feet running the household for the past 9 months, and taxiing Dave to various appointments, and may want to either join him there, or sequester herself to whatever quiet corner can be found.

So any assistance in food prep and manning the grille on Saturday would be greatfully appreciated. I'll be bringing a Watermelon / Feta salad, but as I'll likely be "quality control testing" - under supervision - my mixology skills will be taxed with anything further than a simple Dark and Stormy or G & T.

Cal, how about a nice marinated Pork Tenderloin - Susan has a great recipe that has yet to fail - I think I like it more than the boneless Lemon Chicken thighs.

Chris,
I'm not sure what sort of food or drink, if anything, that we can bring across the border but if you can make any suggestions we can stop on our way from the ferry and buy some stuff. I'm happy to help with chores any way I can. Just ask.

As for Terry coming along, I'm glad I have a roof rack.

John
