Send our Peregrinos off at Strathmore (free concert!)

Hi folks,

As noted in our June 23rd meetup, we have a number of folks leaving for the Camino in August and September. Shall we see them off in style?!

Jim had a great suggestion: a free outdoor concert on the lawn at Strathmore (on the red line) on August 7th. The performer, Carlos Nunez, plays traditional Galician bagpipes - hard to get more appropriate than that! The concert starts at 7, so perhaps we can meet at 6 to socialize a bit before the music begins?

More details can be found at http://www.strathmore.org/eventstickets/calendar/view.asp?id=9443, if you're curious.

Hope to see you there. In case of rain...well, I'll figure out a backup plan (or someone is welcome to suggest one).

Thanks,
Kristin

    It was a very relaxed performance by Carlos Nunez that was enjoyed by all that attended. Before the performance and during the intermission we were able to talk at length about our plans for the Camino and future activities.

    Just a few days left in DC. I won't be able to make it tonight. I enjoyed meeting all of you. Best of luck. Perhaps we'll meet someday on the camino.

    Dear Fellow Pilgrims,
    Due to the thunderstorm forecast, I've decided not to drive down from Baltimore for tonight's concert. Looking forward to the next gathering, after I return from this year's Camino.
    Buen Camino!

    I was really looking forward to the meet up but something has come up. So to all of the departing peregrinos: Buen Camino!

    Thanks, folks - meeting at the Gazebo at 6 sounds great. I'll have my cell phone with me [masked]) in case anyone is coming late or otherwise needs to find us. See many of you tomorrow!

    Really looking forward to this event! I leave 9/1 for my third Camino Frances and hope to meet others who will be on the way at the same time. I'll head to the gazebo and will play Carlos Nuñez music over a small speaker that I'm bringing for my iPhone so that other pilgrims can find the group.

    Unfortunately I have a 7:00 conference call. I am heading to Ireland for the Ring of Kerry hike in late August, then to Spain for a mini-version of the Camino in September. Looks like some here may be on the trail too this fall. Buen Camino!

    I have been to one outdoor concert there a few years ago. It took place around the gazebo which is on the north/west side of the mansion. Not saying this will be the case for the upcoming event but it is a landmark.

    Hi all,

    I'm hoping one of you might have a good recommendation on where to convene at Strathmore? I've been to the indoor venues, but never the outdoor one - and any meeting place suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi folks - Rei passed on some additional information about the performer and the show. Check it out at http://www.spainculture.us/calendar/914/ if you'd like! Looking forward to seeing you on the 7th.

    I am not sure about guests. It could be 1, 2, 3 or none.

    The newly formed Mid-Atlantic American Pilgrims on the Camino will also be attending that evening. Looking forward to being there before I leave for my 3rd Camino (Frances) on 9/1.

    Looking forward to seeing all my peregrine friends.

    I hope to be at the concert, but may have a conference call for a non-profit I work with that night. I'm doing two weeks on the Camino in September, starting in Roncesvalles, ending in Santiago, but skipping a few parts. This is a bit of a trial run for when I have more time to do the whole Camino. And I hope to do England's Coast-to-Coast sometime too - have done parts, but not the whole.

    I feel bad I can't be there as I'm one of those leaving for the Camino in late August, but I'm flying to Montreal that day for my birthday. Sorry I'll miss you guys.

      Bummer - I'm sorry about that. If you're keen to do something else, too, let me know and I'll figure out another meetup time. Otherwise we'll look forward to stories when you're back....

    Not sure about guests. Will know more closer to the date.
