Hi, this is Gordon from Eastman. On one of the forums discussing Eastman mandolins someone suggested that perhaps we could have a get together here in the Washington, DC area in a local drinking establishment where I bring a pile of mandolins and we all dive in and put them through their paces. We haven't set a time or date or even a venue yet as it's still in the planning stages but I need some idea of how many people might come so I can go ahead and book the space. If you would like to come send me an email offline at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me what part of town would be most convenient for you. #Everyone is invited and it will be a very casual affair. Nothing but a couple of beers and a bunch of mandolins.
