    Went to the first Loarfest in California many years ago, around 45-50 Loars there. How many at the 2020?

    That worn one was brought for display in loving memory of Dempsey Young. It was his Hutto Gibson Copy F5. This year saw David Harvey set up two tables with his private collection along with several vintage F5s and 2 new model F5s. Other rooms had several and some were not on display, but could be seen in private in hotel rooms. Overall I think it surpassed the 2006 LoarFest West in number of Loars and Ferns. That total 50 figure above included Loars and Ferns and other prewar F5. Lots of photos on facebook groups if you want to see what all was there. Some great pickers were there: Alan Bibey, Mike Compton, Gary Brown, Tony Williamson, Scott Napier, Danny Roberts, Gene Johnson, David Harvey, Rosco Morgan, Herschel Sizemore, Darryl Wolfe and Red Henry. I probably left out a few.
