Yeah,,, I'd say it was a pretty reasonable success!

Yesterday was a FREAKIN ball...   I think the best way for you to read a recap of the event is by going to the Slipper Blog at

http://www.theslipperrest.com/.....pper-blog/

That way I only have to write this once!

It seriously was such an incredible experience; I can't wait for Diane and Ted to put together the videos/pics!

Great!
Good write up Fred, like you, I can't wait to see the recording.

Would be great to make it an annual event. My savings account has already been started

I am amazed at how old people of my age are.....

I was with you all yesterday, in spirit anyway! I knew you couldn't help but have fun with all those fiddlers in one place.

I just hope I can make the next one. crossedfingers

Great write-up Fred!  I can't wait to see the pics & vids!!  

I was fiddlin' there in spirit!!  .....no really...  My wife and I were sitting here at home because we had taken the vacation time and fully planned on going! LOL  Thankfully, my friend came over and wanted to learn how to fiddle! :D  

...next year....yes, next year I will DEFINITELY be there! ;-)

AND NOW...[drum roll]...the moment you've all been waiting for: the world premiere of the First Annual Fiddlerman.com SoCal Jam video!!!!

 

[Note: the video is 5:25. As of this posting, something's going on with YouTube; it sometimes quits part way through. If that happens to you, too, try reloading it.]

Looks like you all had a fantastic time. Nice song for the ending too.

I hope to join one these jams...one of these days!
