    "Ladies and Gentlemen, Welcome to the first annual convention of the RMC1 appreciation society!"

    With these words, the first ever meeting was opened. In order to break the ice, myself and Phil did one number with the rhythm section and then proceeded to ensure that everyone was able to get up and play, including some of the young lads that Phil teaches guitar to.

    With the whirl of people there, I knew all the forum names, but I offer a white flag to some, as I cannot readily co-relate their stage names to the photos. Forgive me, and please add information to the photos as you all see fit - I will number mine from 01 onwards. So on with the piccies, which I will load here across several posts.

    01: Me stopping for a break halfway to Bridport, Friday afternoon:

    02: Paulygates and me outside the venue:

    03:phil with Banjocaster for the opening song
    [​IMG]

    04: "Big wheels keep on turning, carry me home to see my kin", spanking the Deluxe:
    [​IMG]

    05: 'Sweet Home...', Well you know the rest of the words:
    [​IMG]

    06: Philis plink, plinks along:
    [​IMG]

    07: A study in concentration:
    [​IMG]

    08: 'Where the skies are Everton blue'
    [​IMG]

    09: The Banjo Man:
    [​IMG]


    A LOT more to come (there's about 70 in total) showing all the usual suspects who were there, including a never-before-seen photo for b-squared of the British MI5 team that cracked the 'famous case' together.

    Ah it's ok Phil, we know your an animated, passionate person. Your continued stoush with Vasco is testament to that.:D

    So far, it looks like you buggers had a Whale of a time and thats just for the first few pics JV has posted, I'm sure it only gets better from here.

    Did you see that Drude and snares lost Kernel... too funny.

    Rick.

    Rick,

    I'm sure that will become the stuff of legend on the forum. Ask a Yorkshireman to arrange something, and he screws it up. :dude:

    Too true JV, but to hear a Yorkie tell it, it was so much better losing a friend in Grandad's day.:D

    Rick.

    PS. Thanks for doing the pics, us Colonials have been waiting patiently for the vision of this night.

    It's funny Dice, I was thinking of asking Phil the same thing, that neck looks very dark, could have seen at least thirty years of smokey bars and clubs.

    That's about late 80/ early 90's MIJ .
    I was originally candy apple red but I had it re-finished in fiesta red.
    The pots and switches are US, and the pickups are Lindy Fralin Blues with a bassplate under the bridge pickup.
