Nice tune.

Hi Guys – great to see this page up on the web – and hope you get a good turnout for the event. Please ask the participating members of your band to individually register for the event on line at and follow the thread to the registration page. We need to add each individual to the Data Base and promise not to her this information with anyone.

Best regards,

Rod McLeod

Actually I’m over in Portland Or and I’m looking forward to going to a disused post from the 40s and participating there

Interesting option
