Discussion of priorities were had:  We can’t change the date due to flight arrangements being made.  Pirate Fest changed their ‘usual’ April date to March. We had our date chosen prior to their recent announcement of the 3/25 & 3/26 weekend. Do we rent one for our event?  Utilize Dan R. for our event?)   Decisions TBD soon.

Pitchfork will have their own system for their outside-performance.

Greg is going to contact an ol’ LVJBS Pal, David Nelson to see if He would like to join as a possible Pitchfork sit-in (stand-in?) and for a possible jam with Cubensis.  More details TBA.
