  1. Christy appears to have this fixed
  2. UPDATE ON BUSES TO/FROM RODNEY"S As many of you know, because of many requests made last year, Christy made arrangements with a local church to provide pick up service from the motels in Hope to drive people out to Rodney's place and return them at the end of the evening. The whole idea for this was to avoid drinking and driving. Christy was just advised by the Pastor of the church that they will not allow their buses to go out and pick up people from Rodney's because he understands there may be "drinking going on out there." Needless to say, Christy was in total shock by this pronouncement because when she spoke to the person from the church it was with the understanding that it was a "designated driver" situation. She is working on trying to make some alternative arrangements for transportation from the motels to and from Rodney's on Friday and Saturday. However, she may not be able to get this done as she had hoped. She will be updating and editing this post as more information becomes available. Edit: Looks like Christy has it fixed. Travis
  3. People who are paid/confirmed ahead of time (but unable to register before any of the events out at Rodney's) will be on a guest list with the Sheriff's Deputy who is providing security.
  4. I wouldn't worry about it in the least. Maybe he will stay on for Thursday to do the tour of the gravesite, garden and Washington State Park, see what a great group. Travis

  6. Not your fault. Q. "Y'all need us to pick ya up and drive ya 20 minutes from yer hotel out to a farm in the middle on nowhere? Then come on back and git you an take ya back to the motel we brung ya from?" A. "Yasuh, we's tryin' to be responsible and all" Q. "Why shore, we kin do dat fer ya. Not a problum atall?. We would just want a donation to our humble House of Worship" A. "Greeaaat. We preciate it." Fast forward two months Q. "Say, none of yous is gonna be drinkin out there is ye? THE SILENCE IS DEAFENING

  9. No. It was a violation on the Mann Act. His autobiography, which is quite good, talks about a conviction for steeling a car at gunpoint when he was a juvenile (reform school) tax trouble (4 months) etc.
  10. I think they do all intersect through CB, but they all originate from this guy
  11. I couldn't get to embed like that. How did you do that @Tarheel?
  12. His music is out of this universe. He got a raw deal from the Man. Rest in peace. 079.pdf
  13. That is all true. At employee appreciation lunch I showed the guys I sat with photos of them and all three said "Oh I remember those, they came out great. Hope we never have to do that again." Plant manager said "never again."
  14. @JRH I will forward this to Jim and make sure he sees this
  15. I have attached the Klipsch Museum of Audio History "Save the Date" flyer (4./27/17 starting at 1:30, refreshments immediately following from 2:30 to 3:30. You can RSVP by either sending an email to rsvp@klipschmuseum.org or going to the Calendar function (up at the top of the page), it is the only event listed on the calendar so far. It allows fForum members to indicate "Yes" "No" or "Maybe". If you are going to the Pilgrimage, we hope you can come in a day early to see the official ceremony where Klipsch Group, Inc. (KGI) will transfer the Museum and grounds to the Klipsch Heritage Museum Association, Inc. d/b/a Klipsch Museum of Audio History. The President and CEO of KGI will be giving the Keynote Address. Edit. Also in attendance will be the Founder and Chairman of Voxx International Corporation, John J. Shalam. We are deeply honored that Paul and Mr. Shalam are making the long trip to participate in the transfer of the Museum. Hope to see you all there.

  16. John Shalam, the Founder and Chairman of Voxx International Corporation has confirmed he will be attending the Transfer Ceremony on April 27th. Mr. Shalam was instrumental in clearing the way for Klipsch to donate the Klipsch Museum of Audio History to the nonprofit corporation (Klipsch Heritage Museum Association, Inc.) that was created to operate the Museum and preserve the legacy of Paul W. Klipsch and the company he founded. The Board of Trustees of the KHMA is honored to have Mr. Shalam present at the ceremony to accept and receive, in person, their sincere expression of thanks to him for allowing the Museum to become a reality.

  17. As stated, Pete Townsend. What model was it? It wasn't that much of a blood feud, Pete was instrumental in helping EC beat heroin.
  18. Yes he has. I can't speak for the factory, but it is great news for the Museum.
  19. John Shalam has confirmed he will be present for Transfer Ceremony of the Museum on Thursday.

  22. I'm with the Chamber of Commerce, so I define "area" loosely. There are three in Texarkana, at least one of which is really good (Pecan something). There is also a Whataburger in the "area", (Texarkana), and nightclubs in the "area". I can get you, allegedly, pretty much any flavor you want of the other stuff.
  23. Allegedly
  24. Bone dry, unless you know someone.
