Well, I am pretty sure I'm in.

I can bring the AC30HW2X, if needed.

I initiated this particular thread, but sorry, won't be able to make it on Labor Day weekend (long-standing plans). If you have a SoCalCon in the next two months, I shall try to make it, although I won't be free the first weekend of October. :(

A couple of folks have mentioned possibilities of travel plans in October ... and while indecision remains undecided, October has been known to be a good month for a Ricktoberfest® SCARF .... :wink: Possibility is that the Mini Jam on Sept 1st could get SCARF inspiration flowing ... you never know !

Right now it looks like we are going to have pretty good attendance for the Sept 1st Mini Con, so it should be a lot of fun !

Jam songs sign up list.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... WtNMTNHd2c

Paulie did a great job MC'ing at the 80th. May not be necessary this time out. However the sign up list may come in handy to make sure everyone gets to play their favorite ditties - and finds someone else who knows how to play it.

There are a whole bunch I'd like to sign up for, some of which I might even be brave enough to sign up for drums. I only wish I had a better idea of the date. I'd hate to commit to something only to discover I have a gig that week end.

Holy Smoke and a pancake! This list is starting to look like a maxicon jam...or a straight up confluence!

I just re-installed the recently reconed Vox alnico blues in my H2, btw. :) Yes, I managed to completely blow one speaker and damage a second. Oops.
There is no reason to ever be bored.

...why yes, I suppose I do have a double bound guitar fetish...

"Uh, I like the double bounds. . . ."

Maxicon- Minicon :? :? Confusion-con :?: :?: What's that saying "many songs are called but few are chosen" ?

Paulie, hope you can perform your Jam-Mesiter duties again at the Sept 1st Mini Con event, to encourage everyone and get everybody a chance to play, as you really have a good sense about it. :wink: :)

=== === === === ===
Scotty, thanks for posting the list.

We've received RSVPs from Tony S (singer with Small World Band with Vito 8) ) and also from Bobbo B who has signed up for a few songs already on the Song sheet. And we also heard from Bob S (Original 360) that he's coming.

Keep the RSVPs coming ! :)
