So far, we’ve received new donations from the American Antique Auto Museum and United Water. We should have a flyer out around the end of this month. I’ll send it out once it’s finished. if you’d like to forward these emails through your own email networks and contacts, please do!

If you haven’t seen the new logo for this year’s event, take a look at it (top right). This was designed by Ric Albano of 33 Dimensions. I think its a great new look and we’ll be using it a lot on may things we send out. Many thanks to Ric.

Tim Dyer and Dyer’s World Video will be there to capture all the excitement of the show for posterity. (thanks, Tim!) He’s helped us out for several events now, and you can see some of his videos of 2012 shows here.

I’m still working on the lineup of bands for the show, but I’ll send out a full schedule once everything’s been finalized. I’m still looking for someone to supply us with two folding tables and six chairs for the day of the event. There is not going to be anywhere to sit and we need a place to put the prizes and ticket sales. There will be other vendors in the courtyard that day, so space will be limited to beside the stage area. If you can help, or know someone who can. please let me know. Other thatn that things are on track. We can always use more donations of prizes for the drawing, so if you’d like to help, please contact me.

Until next time,
Chris Nelson

So far, things are going really well. We have our event location, sound support, and a few musicians and bands have been eager to join this event.

Today, I’m sending out donation requests by email and fax. I have a long list of places to send these to. I have attached a PDF version of the letter, which you can print or email to anyone you think would like to help.

So far, we’ve received contributions from:

  • LB Smith Ford
  • Hoffman Ford
  • 33 Dimensions
  • Dale’s Drum Shop

This is just the beginning, so I’m sure this list will get longer.

Ric Albano has offered to transport the drums to the site and then back to Dale’s Drum Shop after the event, so that problem has been resolved.

In addition, we will need to come up with two folding tables and about 6 chairs in order to set up our ticket sales table and display the prizes that will be raffled off. In anyone can help out by supplying these items the day of the event, please let me know.

We also will need people to help sell tickets. The more volunteers we get, the less time people have to stay at the ticket table.

I’ll have more details as they happen!
