    It was great to see you guys playing out there--I was running and gave you some extra attention but I'm not sure the few of you who met me once recognized me. In any case, it was an added bonus that you were out there boosting us with your energy--so thanks!!!!

    GREAT JOB DRUMMERS!

    I just received an email from the race organizers stating that they have already been receiving really positive feedback from the runners regarding our drumming out there.

    I must admit I hated the first morning cold but it warmed up beautifully and I enjoyed hanging out with you guys. Let's do the beach thing as discussed and continue to drum together. It did my spirit good.

    I really wish these meetings were more convenient for me! Alexandria is unfortunately a bit far from Silver Spring, and 7am Sunday is just not possible either :( I will keep following you though!

      Once you come once you will be hooked. We all come from all over the DMV and even S.Spring.

      I wanted to throw my alarm out the window when it went off at 5:30 but I agree that it was well worth it. We had so much fun and were just the right combination of players. Sounds like more trips will be in our future.

    That's awesome! Have fun! Would love to join but have folks dropping by weekends to buy stuff till I move out -will not be back to drum circle till May. : (

    Also -and sorry for spam -if anyone knows someone who wants to rent out a small quiet room for a little extra cash, e-mail me privately. I need a super duper cheap crash pad for 3 mos. where I can work on my thesis day and night till I head overseas.

    BTW, we are getting paid ($$$.$$) in the form of a gift certificate to Guitar Center. We will divide it up equally amongst the drummers drumming at this event.
