    There is a bar on the walkway between the Renessance/Convention Center and the Parking garage. How about meeting there with mando in case or hand and go from there. I was thinking Friday at 4:00 if that works with you guys?

    Mike Bicayu is trying to organize a Cafe meet and greet and is working with someone in Nashville to set this up. Dan Beimborn may be coming over for IBMA and if he does I'll probably try to make it down. Can I come to the party?

    Thumbs up

    Hans Brentrup told me he'll be there, along with some "goodies" (mandos) that he's recently completed. Check out his booth and go for a test-run! (no financial interest here)

    Scott, my idea to meet at the bar in the walkway to the parking area was before you posted about a Cafe meeting. I suggest we trash my idea and go with whatever Dan comes up with.

    If you already have a place to stay you should be pretty much set. That would seem to be the hardest of getting to ibma. Go to ibma.org and there's an events tab I believe and click on world of bluegrass or fanfest or any of that and you can get all the info you need. A 3 day pass to fanfest is about 90 bucks I think. The business conference on the other hand is quite a bit more than that. If you got 90 bucks and a place to stay your good to go.

    Hey Barry, I'll be there the week of Fan Fest. Unfortunately, I'll be leaving on the 3rd, but I'd love to come to the Cafe meet and greet before I take off. Hope to put a lot of faces with avatars. See everyone there.

    I'll be there all week at booth 64 with 10-12 mandolins. Don't know if I'll be able to make the Cafe gathering as I'll probably be tuning instruments, but please stop by and introduce yourselves.

    I will be there at least one day. If anyone is going to be there with a mandola, please PM me, I am in the market for one right now so I'm trying to play as many as possible to help me figure out what I want. And I'll look forward to seeing when the Cafe get together is...that will help me choose which day to show up as I'll probably only be able to afford to miss work one day, two at the most.
