Northern California X - May 6
« on: March 20, 2017, 03:39:56 PM »
I've been thinking lately about a Northern California Gathering.  I believe this will be number 10.  Last year's was in May, which seemed to work out well weather-wise.   Should we be thinking about May, again?

Bill, tgo

I'm waiting to hear back from the ranch as to the available calendar dates. I'll post when I have some to choose from.

I don't have a confirmation yet, but I'm hoping we can do May 13 -  I will post an announcement when we have a firm date.

The day has been set: May 6th it is. I'm gonna update the title of this thread in a minute.

As Bill noted, it's #10 and should be great fun as ever! As usual, send me an email with "Gathering 10" in the subject line to be added to the mailing list with the event details.

There is no wifi or cellphone coverage at the event. It's quite remote.

I'd love to fly out again, but Dawn will be in Berlin, hopefully winning an Art and Olfaction award, so I'm here with Xander. Hm, he does love California, though....

I'm actually triple-booked on 5/6... not that I could make it this year anyway. ::)

I swear it's on my bucket list to come out there for a visit though. Almost happened last year, but I needed to buy a new(er) gig-mobile. You all have fun, and play one for me, knowing my Alembics are working hard back East here.  ;)

It would have been good to have an international gathering for the 10th anniversary event and if the date was available to be secured earlier maybe a group of us from outside the usa could have made plans to come. But for a number of reasons now it is too short notice for me to make it this time. 😳 But if my circumstances change, who knows. 😁✌🏿

 As someone who is new to this community, may I ask if would it be possible for someone to share general details about this gathering? I live in Marin County, so it's well within the realm of possibility for me to cruise on up with my Essence, but I'd like to know a little more in the way of costs, logistical details and the like. Thanks.

No cost to attend. There are threads about previous gatherings like the one last year (link below) that include pictures which should give you a general idea as to what goes on. Lots of instruments to view or play, jamming, light snacks and general Alembic-themed camaraderie. Location is beautiful, remote and quiet. Highly recommended!

I can recommend going. I travelled there from the UK to pick up my bass from Alembic, do a factory tour and also attend the annual meet. It was good to meet the people whom I'd been communicating on like with for years in person and also meet Mica and some of the team at the factory. Also one of the members here offered me the guest room in his home so that made the whole trip much more of a meeting of friends. If you can make it there I would say take the opportunity.
