What a GREAT weekend.  I'm tired of waiting for the many photos to appear here at the OFC, so I've taken it upon myself to kick off the photo thread.  There are already a few photos floating around on FaceAche, but it would be nice to share them here, where this whole shebang originated. 

First up, a big thanks to Jim (Aussie James) for arranging it, feeding the masses and having the foresight (a stroke of genius) for inviting your brothers - WOW! Their singing was the highlight for me'

Secondly, thanks to Andrew (The Wizz) for hosting the show & tell & bullsh*t session at his Australian Guitar Making School workshop.  And congratulations on a fantastic setup - livin' the dream...

Thirdly, a warm Aussie welcome to Beal and his gorgeous wife Laurel (AKA Carmen), and thank you for choosing Australia for your honeymoon destination.

Lastly, I'd like to thank Richard (TAFKAR) for actually turning up... 

 

So, here are the few photos that I took. I was having WAAAAAY to much fun to take pictures.  I think this first one is appropriate to kick of the slideshow...

It's good to see that AJ was able to fit a cooler and a couple of cases of Grolsch in the van with all those guitars. That man has his priorities straight.

That green guitar reminds me of a "First Act". Like the ones VW gave away. I always liked that marketing idea, free guitar with every car!
