Hope to get by one day or the other...probably Saturday as I'll be driving home Friday from FL. Depends on #3's baseball schedule.
"A full marketplace of CBG builders"... one vendor selling CBGs, and one selling CB lamps.RIP Huntsville CBG fest, you had a good run.
That's sad. There were five or so CBG vendors last year and a couple of others with shirts/books/etc.
Did the jam session go ok? Hated I couldn't get up there...but the 12yo can't drive himself to games. ;) Maybe I'll get up your way sometime.
