Either works for me. Glad to make the trek to Auburn

It's all good for me. Let's hear some feedback from the other guys.

Yep, figig was good.  Good snacks, a lot of conversation and some nice playing.  

Another alternative to fingig in Auburn would be having it here if Mike could come down here.  Just a thought.  Would possibly even out some of the driving.  Although a summer BBQ and pool event could be good too!

Interesting about your Talus, Tom.  Mine is 25.5.  Yours is obviously much newer.  I think Mike got the first short scale Talus when Tony made his.

Cool guys! So glad you all had fun. Tom, what did you do to the cat?

Indeed I would love to have Fingig here. I'm thinking April? How does that sound? It's a long drive, 2 1/2 - 3 hours for most of you from the peninsula. We can change to an earlier time, maybe 11:00 - 2:00 or 3:00? I want it to be a BBQ day as well. Or, since I have 2 spare bedrooms and lots of space, I can easily sleep 6 folks or more.

We could also possibly do one in summer and make it a BBQ / swim event?

Tom had a close encounter with Eggnog's big paws, sorry about that, hope it heals...

The Hamblin may have found a new home. I put Pearse strings on it last night, and it sounds even better...

Sorry I missed this!  I did, indeed have H2O in the gas tank!  It came from the pump at a local gas station - other folks experienced the same problem and the station agreed to pump it out and fix it at no charge.  Still, it was a big hassle!

Doug, Thanks for hosting!

I had a great time ... just hoping I don't get Cat Scratch Fever :-)

BTW, yes, my Yamamoto Talus is short scale at 24.9"

What's the word on that Hamblin? Sounded pretty nice!

Nice fingig, thanks all for coming out. We had five, and it was great to see everyone after what seems like a long time. New songs from Tom and Josep, and a new look for Josep as wel! Missed Mike, we'll have to all come to your place one of these days.

How'd it go yesterday guys?

Comment by Michael McGrath on January 31, 2016 at 3:31pm

Sorry everyone, I'm having car trouble - think there's water in the gas tank! :~(

Have a great fingig and I'll catch you all next time.
