    I'm considering driving over from Phoenix for this... how long until you think they run out of tickets? Do I need to decide soon?

    For the past couple of years I haven't had any problem buying a ticket at the entrance. I usually arrive within an hour of it opening. So probably no rush.

    For those going, please look out for me, Patchen and Kevin Beddoe of Kinnard Ukes (who is exhibiting). We will have a Luthiers for a Cause table at the event and be offering embroidered tees, hats and possible cleaning clothes. All profit will go straight to the Ukulele Kids Club.

    Curious about the relative importance of tonewood vs. the luthier? See Luthiers for a Cause to learn more!

    What did he say that merits this sort of response publicly? A little explanation will do, as I'm a bit perturbed as to your demeanor in reply to an innocent reply, however opinionated it is. I will not be attending this now due to your sponsorship and reply has left a weird taste in my mouth.

    You are entitled to your feelings and so am I. If it's an "explanation" you want, all you need to do is look up Howie's disrespectful post history. I said what everyone is thinking.
