@Grandpafiddle - 

Memorial Day is only a few days away!

Did you participate last year? 

I didn't really think about it back then, thinking it was for Bugles/horns... 

BUT, I see there was ONE Fiddler who submitted a photo last year (even a piper, too) - and I have been playing "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy", so why not? 

Thought about if it rains... everyone says that a CF instrument can be played in ANY weather, but BOW HAIR is the issue!  Last year, when I played near the lake, it was windy & there was water spray near the lake shore - my bow hair stretched like crazy! 

There IS the "Fiddlerman Forever Bow" - 100% synthetic!

Didn't know about this--I'm going to try to do it--

Attached versions in Bflat (what buglers use), & in G.
