    What a GREAT DAY!!! The only bummer was that my phone wouldn't get any reception and I didn't know where to look for y'all? I was up front but cruised around looking for shade throughout the day. I kept looking for the good looking bunch having a good time but seemed to see good looking people having a good time everywhere. Hope to see ya on the next meet-up. So far I've got two strikes on me :-( PLEASE, don't throw the curve :-)

    Hi everyone! Lynn and I are here! Look to the far left of stage about 3/4 before orange fence in back. Close to white tent selling merchandise. Look for green blanket with shocking pink beach chair. I'm wearing black baseball hat and turquoise shirt and black pants. See you soon!

    Hi Leslie! Linda's mom unexpectedly is in the hospital so she may or may not make it down in the morning, but I can meet you. I have your cell phone number so I will call you in the morning to find you. I will either have a navy Tab Benoit cap on or a big blue sunhat and I'll be wearing a navy Blues Cruise sweatshirt!

      I will look for you Lynn. I'm carrying a pink beach chair and green blanket.

    It turns out I have a lung infection and won't be able to attend. My husband, Brian, is going to try to find someone to go with him tomorrow, maybe his son. Brian is the one with Parkinsons and needs to sit in a normal height chair.

    Linda and Lynn,
    I just realized that the gates open at 10am. I will get in line before 10am. Can you meet me at 10 instead of 10:30am? Thank you so much!

    Important information about the Santa Cruz Blues Festival:
    1) Park at Cabrillo College and take the shuttle to the event.
    2) Bring a low back beach chair
    3) Dress in layers-cold in the morning and much warmer in the afternoon.
    4) Bring sunblock
    See you all there!

    Hi Leslie,
    Thanks for saving a spot for us. I so look forward to see the show. I'll be coming from SF with a friend and we already got the tickets. Should I call you to find out where you are? Is your number[masked] ?

    May 22

    • LESLIE

      Text me on my cell number because it will be loud. This will be a great time! When we get the spot on the lawn I will email this group through the comments and let you know where we are located.

    I understand you can only use the low beach chairs on the lawn area. My husband has Parkinsons and I didn't realize the thing about the low chairs. He can't use one. If we sit all the way in the back in regular camp chairs will we be able to hear if not see the action? Already have our tickets for Sat.

    • LESLIE

      They only allow low beach chairs so everyone can see the stage. I have seen the higher beach chairs used in the back area but you would need to get there before 11am to save a spot. This is a very popular event and people get there early to save lawn area. I think it will work out Anne. Unfortunately I can't guarantee anything. Is there a phone number on the website you can call for additional information?

    Hi Leslie, I'm pretty sure Lynn and I can meet you in line then. We're staying at a motel nearby. How will I know you?

    May 21

    • LESLIE

      That would be wonderful! Thank you Linda! I've met Lynn before so she might remember me. My photo is posted. I will be carrying a shocking pink beach chair. They open the gates at 11am. I will be there by 10am to get a good spot in line. I will bring a blanket too. If both of you can bring a blanket that would help. I will look for you! My cell is[masked]

    I need help for this event! They won't allow 1 person to save enough lawn area for this large of a group. Please let me know ASAP if you can meet me in line for this event at 1030am and help me set the blankets up on the lawn. Otherwise I can only save a max of 4-6 spots.

    The Blues Festival starts @11. To get a good spot on the lawn we need to get in line by 10am. Would anyone like to go early with me and help me put blankets down to reserve lawn area?

  • LESLIE

    Did everybody go online to santacruzbluesfestival.com to get your general seating tickets? This event will sell out! Make sure if you want to go with this group get the tickets for Sat.
