    That was the best event and the best location. Dan, Keith and the Mockingbirds were excellent...the guitarist was somewhat questionable. Judy, fantastic job pulling everything together and being the consummate MC.

    Everyone was awesome. This was the best event I have seen in a long time. Surprised by Dan's Talent with the Steinway, John with the guitar and the Mockingbirds were polished too.

    The venue was too much. Too Much, but worth the effort to go their and since the talent of Dan's needed the top of the line piano, It was the best way to show off his other talents. I did not know what to expect and was very pleased with the performances. Andy as the Spring Goddess, well cast.

    Then off to Camp Polock. What a contrast in venues. I was expecting a homeless guy would crawl out from under the building. I like rustic, might even say I prefer it to the ostentatious. All of this was made up by the people that went. When ever we show up in one place it is awesome. Loved meeting the people I have seen around, but have not shared time with. Loved talking to Dan Barker during the event. I learned some critical things. Thanks Dan.

    I just thought, what's with this "ring in the equinox" thing? That was last month. Of course, the reference may relate to some other planet.

    April 20, 2014

    • Judy S.

      For a proper sacrifice, you may ask your question of the Goddess. Otherwise, just blame it on the moon, who decided not to fill out until now following the equinox. Have some jelly beans, Bill.

      Yes, and was her face red!

    Is there still room for this young skeptic?

    April 19, 2014

    • Rich W.

      I'm sure there is. My family of 3 is actually on the fence. We'll be at the potluck later, but I think the morning would be too boring for our 7-year-old.

      April 19, 2014

    • Judy S.

      The theater seats 95, so there's plenty of room!

  • Will S.

    I RSVPd on this Meetup is this a good enough RSVP?

    April 18, 2014

    • Judy S.

      Yes, this RSVP is all you need.
