Seriously though, I would drive as far as South Oxfordshire if there was a regular accordion club/event of some kind.
You'd just have to hope nobody saw this message and pretend to be interested in changing to CBA! :D

Just a thought... I hope if I turn up, you lot are actually going to talk to me.
I've been finding it very noticeable that my contributions to threads almost always get ignored completely. It's becoming quite unpleasant!

Oh dear, that's dreadful! Nothing mysterious or underhand going on here I promise.

Sorry to have been busy with other things but still aiming to consult on SECBAR dates v soon, where I hope there will be much talking in all directions!

Bocsa .......... Ditto the above.

Kind Regards,

Stephen.

Hello Tom and all other CBAists. Any further thoughts on this Rally? I will come if I'm available, the earlier I know a date, the more likely to be available!
b.t.w. Tom, I met you at the "Clog Ale" at Daglingworth.

Hi John, good to hear from you, I was planning on getting a message to you via Sabotage in case you didn't see it here.
Looking at Saturdays in October and hope to have something definite in the next day or so.

Hi folks
Going for 7th October 2017 in Steventon, Oxfordshire. Just west of the A34 near Didcot and not far north of Chievely junction of the M4.
So, please save the date and I'll add other info shortly.

Slightly updated version of what I said before.....
What's coming to mind is:-
- Get together in the hall from mid-morning, bring instruments to show, compare, try out etc.
- Bring any instruments for sale, might be possible to get some other instruments specifically for sale there.
- Anyone thinking of swapping to CBA from PA, or starting from scratch would be welcome.
- "Ploughmans" type lunch and other refreshments organised (by me.)
- After lunch "show and tell," encouraging as many as possible to play a tune, share things of interest, ask opinions, etc.
- Maybe find a tune or some music to have a massed play.
- Ends late afternoon.
- Cost minimal, £10 a head.

"Rallies" in the world of old motorbikes have been described as "ride two hundred miles, stand about in a field talking bikes, ride two hundred miles home!"

Cheers,
Tom

I'm up for this too. I don't frequent the forums as often as I'd like to but now I know this is on I'll check back more often.
I can bring my Saltarelle Bourroche and my Victoria Poeta (which is 'kind of" for sale) for people to have a go on if they want.
It's so frustrating not being able to try new CBAs before buying. It's a lot of money to drop on something you're not going to see for up to 6 months!

That's one of the reasons why I like buying second-hand - I still love the Pigini I bought from you four years ago!

Perhaps you'd like to upgrade to a lovely Poeta? Or even just add it to your collection? :tup:

It'll be nice to try it... but I very much hope that I won't be smitten with it... I've already got to find the money for two more sets of bagpipes that I've ordered!
