First Annual Sunny California VIRTUAL CBG & Roots Music Fest ~ February 2nd until ????

You, my friends are cordially invited  to the First Annual Sunny California VIRTUAL CBG & Roots Music Fest

(Note: as used here, virtual means IMAGINARY). 

This is a potluck meal, so please bring a covered dish.  If you can, bring a signature dish from your region, such as fried okra from the American south, tortillas from Mexico, sweet corn from Iowa, Fish and Chips from the U.K.  and Vegamite sandwiches from Australia.

Please RSVP and tell us what vehicle you will be driving and what snacks you are bringing.   Air Force One takes up a lot of space.  There will be limited parking for air craft.   There is plenty of boat and submarine parking, but it is first come first serve.  We have room for over 100 buses.  We've been told to expect busses from Canada, Mexico, Australia, Holland and the U.K.  We hope the U.K. folks will drive at least one of those double decker busses. 

Activities include: continuous open mike in several different areas. Vendors. Submarine races.  Disc Golf Tournament.   Largest and smallest fish contest at the fishing event .  Nude beach.  Regular beach.  Disco.  The grand opening of the west coast branch of Uncle John's Pawn shop (free corn dogs to the first 500).  Ugly dog contest at 4 pm.  Goat Rope Rodeo at 5 pm.   And MANY MORE. 

Please RSVP.  ASAP.  WTF.

From one porker to another, would that make it a pigly Diddley stick!

that's just wrong

That is a bad ass pink piggy diddley boar. 

Jimmy Dean pure pork git.

having a bit of trouble... just got knocked of my bike....bikes a write off... damn roo just hopped off into the bush..

I think that is some Unfair Dinkum.  Hitting a poor defenseless creature.  :(   Can you hitch a ride with Bones or AGP?  AGP is bringing 435 gits, so it might be crowded.

Progress report:  The Iowa and 'freinds' bus is just pulling up to the border.  All of us except Wes, Maddog and Dave Lynas are crossing over into Mexico for some fun and to get a load of Mexican beer.   It seems as though Wes, MD and Dave Lynas had previous 'incident' in Mexico and can not go back.  Hmm.  Let that be a cautionary tale to us all.  Looking good to be a Cigar Box point Thursday night or early Friday.  Having some fun jams on the bus. 

Wes, Dave, and Maddog are stranded in Mexico because Uncle is in jail! Unless he’s released on bail, he’ll miss CALLYFEST, the three amigos will remain in dire straits!

That is a crappy photo.  Who gave that to you, Wes or MD?  You know things are not always as they appear.  Those guys were causing trouble.  I was being a peace maker, a mediator.  And I am the one to go to jail?!?!?  

Richard, I thought you sent Jose to bail me out?  Where is he?  Man, I hope he didn't let Wes or Maddog hold my bail. 

Mexico isn't that far away, could do another balloon rescue, not sure if the ladder will hold you both though and the girls are getting antsy to get to the nude beach, hate to disappoint them being the humanitarian I am.

Richard, Bail me out and I will help you keep an eye on those girls.

I don't know Richard, last time I was on a rope with Uncle it looked like this:

And drop another beer off the side willya?
