I'm trying to get ahead of next year's schedule a bit. Have the dates for the OFC factory tour been set?

We don't usually find out if/when the Factory Open House will be until after the Winter NAMM event which is near the end of January.

He's fallen and he can't get up. I'm wondering if I should go this year. It's about an hour and 20 minute drive for me, but then I'd have to pretend I knew how to play guitar. :(

Are you guys even sure the factory wants us back?

I can imagine the conversation now, "Well, Al, you know we got an awfull lot going on this year."

Or is it that way every year?

Brainslag,
There are members possibly coming in from other countries this year.

For you not to drive 1:30 would be criminal!

Interesting question...there is no answer and IMHO there is a very good chance there will be no tour.

By the way, anyone (besides Fred) notice that the factory no longer has a link to the OFC? At least it is no longer in the FAQ section.

Would you really want to direct potential customers to the madhouse this board has become?

There are so many factors involved that I think it's silly to make any speculations. At this time of year, things like Open House's and the like are not even remotely on anyones mind in CT. There are dealer meetings, NAMM, MusicMessa and in general production schedules all of which determine what they can and cannot do for the rest of the year.

As far as the link goes, although it was nice, it really didn't belong, and the more professional their corporate web presence is, the less a link to a fan club belongs in the mix. I would not read anything into it.

As an observation, speaking of reading into things, just don't. Of the several emails I have received concerning one thing or another for the past several months (I even solicited emails at one time if people wanted to know "details" of an issue), and in fact since the inception of this site as I recall. NO ONE (that wasn't directly involved) was even luke warm on the assumptions they made about whatever was the drama d'jour.

Actually it was quite comical. There were a lot of "well I know it was about my post about such'n such and....." No, it wasn't but thanks for the tip :) "I know it was about so'n so, and it's none of my business but..." No it wasn't, thanks for another tip :) , and yes, it is none of your business. :D
I do appreciate the folks that write to myself and Alex with concerns. Although it rarely has anything to do with whatever the "fire'd jour" is, they do give us insight into the memberships wants, needs and desires, so... it's all good.

What? It's NOT all about me?

I could swear the sun shines out my butt, I felt the heat this morning.
Or was that just my legendary Seafood Gumbo/paint remover?
