If you haven't had this experience, I highly recommend it. Music is great and the people are some of the nicest I've run across!

I will be debuting my new McKnight SSD. Come on down and give it a spin!

Good ole winds in our neck of the woods in Ohio needs to leave us and our local electric poles alone! Electric helps us see what we are doing when Tim make guitars.

We are getting caught up. Dennis, we plan to have your newest McKnight on display that weekend even if we have to burn the midnight oils several times between now and then.

Just make sure you burn the midnight oil and not Dennis's guitar, if you're fumbling around in the darkness.

Oh Kurt ... if we get too low on electric we will call you two days before the event to assist in the sanding, gluing, scraping, crying process! We know you'll have our backs.

If Rodger wants to come early we can add his DNA to the rosette. Cut, fit, cut, fit, fit, refit, cut, fit, glue. I'm leaving all that to Tim while I volunteer at the local hospital Emergency department. If he gets hurt at least I'm there to set him up!

Default McJam 2020(OHIO) #13

We have had 2 more newbies sign up for this annual event.

Rodger and I are already setting up the schedule.

You know your favorite music will be a part of the scene if you area playing tunes. Bruce knows all the best songs and encourages others to join in jam circles. If you prefer not to play, but just hang around the group to listen, its all good.

There are annual shop tours for newbies and regulars tend to join in to learn a little more about the McKnight Guitars. We also gather attendees to see some type of guitar work being done by Tim at the McKnight work bench.

I hope you add your name on the list now but rest assured you won't need to pay your non-refundable payment until the week of June 1 - 7. It bears mentioning that you do not need to own a McKnight Guitar to attend and participate in the food, fun and festivities.

McKnight t-shirts need to be worn on site so if you have not purchased in advance please contact me ASAP so I can get your size ordered and printed in plenty of time.

Dennis (Cigarfan), Tim and I are looking forward to showing you Dennis' custom built blue blingy McKnight guitar. Some of you have been watching the thread in the custom section of the AGF, but Dennis will make good to play it for us first hand in person as he is going to pick it up for the first time that weekend. Please do plan to be at the Open mic area that evening. Maybe Dennis will let you touch it.

We always enjoy when attendees bring their McKnight Guitars "home" to let Momma and Papa touch and listen to their own life story. David, Kurt and Rodger's McKnight collections have grown over the years, but if you own one guitar and plan to bring it with you Tim will look it over. In doing this we all can hear of your individual adventures.

Not everyone chooses to play their guitars here. Sometimes it is just fun to talk at lunch or over snacks. Nobody goes away hungry. Meals are pot luck as locals bring a covered dish and I will be sure there is more on the table than necessary. Leftover food is never wasted. We spread the blessings of sharing meals with local families.

Sign up now or any time in advance. I will add you to the list,

Mary has been thinking which certainly should concern y'all. Imagine that. Mary thinks.

Soooooo ...let's talk a moment here.

With this being our McJam "#13" what would everyone have expected to happen to make it a unique "#13" kind of event. I have the feeling COVID desired to be recognized as the party pooper so it reared its ugliness to be known in a McJam. This is one year we will all remember. Some businesses won't acknowledge the number thirteen. I don't want to go that route.

At this point all our McJammers who have been in contact with us seem to be in pretty good health, at least concerning this subject. However, because the President of the United States of America is the Commander and Chief to over rule any event I can muster up that could be detrimental to the McJammers, the people we love to make a joyful noise with, has a little say over our annual event. Tim and I have talked and he agrees with my co-coordinator, Rodger, and me that the McJam date needs a second thought. Rodger suggested we wait until September which certainly will be more realistic to fight the virus. I am announcing there is no set McJam #13 date as of now. We will be better able to make a more definitive plan AFTER we have a national lift. It is at that time I'll seek dates that agree with the majority of you. Of course, if any of you feel at any time you wanna have a McGit date here with Tim let me know and I will help set the schedule. We have been self quarantined because this is rural Ohio. If you have ever been here you know it is no different than the busiest day of the year. The McJam IS the traffic jam.

By the way, if you did not yet know this is Dennis's (Cigarfan) McJam to pick up his brand spankin' new sparkly McGit. It's pretty. You can see his thread which is loaded with pictures here:
https://www.acousticguitarforum.com/...d.php?t=572480

It has a sister guitar being built with it.
https://www.acousticguitarforum.com/...d.php?t=571444

FYI:
The first weekend of September will probably be pretty busy for me unless .... I can convince Jeremy and Adrianne to let us make an aisle, have Bruce play wedding music, Kathy video the event, toss guitar picks instead of bird seed and I can have a bride and groom on the dessert table. Makes sense to me! Look at it this way we would all be dressed in the typical McJam uniform so in a weird way we would all be a part of their event! Then we can call it a day. She owns a local church that is being made into living space. We could slip this event there for an hour and TA-DAH ... what's the problem? Seriously, for 12 years I have teased about someone having a wedding in the McJam. Why can't this couple just let me arrange this plan and they would appreciate the energy McJammers share until death do they part?

.... oh, never mind. Anyhow ... I will take date suggestions here and I hope you all know we delay this only because we care.

REMINDER:

DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID 19 SITUATION THE TIMING OUR MCJAM 2020 WILL BE RE-EVALUATED IN SEPTEMBER. AT THAT TIME WE WILL KNOW THE DETAILS OF THE OHIO LAWS AND YOU CAN HELP GUIDE US.

WE HOPE YOU WILL BE IN TOUCH WITH US THROUGHOUT THIS TIME SO WE CAN BE MORE IN THE KNOW AND AS YOU SHOULD EXPECT WE CAN MAKE ARRANGEMENTS THAT WILL BE SUITABLE FOR SAFETY PRECAUTIONS.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PURCHASING A SPEC GUITAR OR HAVING A MCKNIGHT GUITAR BUILT FOR SHIPPING OR FOR PICK-UP LET US KNOW. WE ARE STILL UP AND RUNNING IN THE MCKNIGHT GUITAR SHOP WITH NO PROBLEMS. JUST GIVE US A CALL OR EMAIL TIM@MCKNIGHTGUITARS.COM.

All is well here at my place. All healthy and making music.

I look forward to the time when our COVID situation allows you re-schedule the McJam. If I am able to attend, I will be bringing "Slim" (recent McKnight SSD) with me!
