"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: 03hil with Banjocaster for the opening song 04: "Big wheels keep on turning, carry me home to see my kin", spanking the Deluxe: 05: 'Sweet Home...', Well you know the rest of the words: 06: Philis plink, plinks along: 07: A study in concentration: 08: 'Where the skies are Everton blue' 09: The Banjo Man: 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.
