With the open house approaching I have some good news. CF Martin will be sending Mike Dickinson to speak on wood issues and the lacey act. This will help you all to know what to do to stay out of the radar. We want you to get the best information .
Also for those that are coming with a spouse , that may not like the guitar stuff , he have some points of interest . Knoebles Grove is a local amusement park in Ellysbugh ( 45 min ) from me . It is a nice park under trees and is free . They also have some great food there.
Hershey Park is about 1 hr from me as is Reading PA. Hershey and Reading also have outlet stores and of course the Hershey Chocolate Factory tour.
As for food , we will be doing Hot Dogs, Hamburg , Bar B q . Typical picnic fare.
Looking forward to this.
Also the CF Martin Blues Creek Tour is arranged for the morning around 10AM given by Mike. You will like him , he gives a great tour and he is entertaining. This will give you all ample time to mosey into the Museum. On the way back there is Cabela's in Hamburg and if there are any train buffs, check out Roadside America at the Shartelsville exit off rt 78. A nice display of trains for those that like that , there is also Grimes Airport up the road with a air museum of antique air planes.
Hope you all have fun.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW YOUR ARE COMING BY SENDING AN EMAIL WITH ----OPEN HOUSE--- in the subject line and how many are planning to come
Thanks

For those that intend to come please email me tippie@epix.net with open house in the subject line. We need to get a rough head count for food. The open house is the 9th and on the 8th CF Martin will offer the Blues Creek guys a special tour. You may even get to see the locked up woods and the sawmill.

It sounds like a lot of fun. Too bad I can't attend; I have a prior commitment - though I'm being pressured to drop it. The Martin factory tour has me especially intrigued I grew up not far from there (Wilkes-Barre) so I'm familiar with many of the local attractions - though I never took The Tour. Will there be a blog of the entire weekend for those of us who can't attend?

Martin will offer a special tour for anyone coming to the open house . The tour will be Fri morning. This is not your regular tour. This will be a great tour for those that can make it.

OK, I got you John. I thought you were talking about a second tour - 1 regular tour and 1 not your regular tour. LOL. I'll be there.
