TODAY WAS CRAZY.... I woke up and drove to Kanilea and got the latest pretty ukes i could get......then a mad rush to Koaloha to get tenors superconcerts scepters concert soprano and longneck sopranos...then a run to Kelii and Kamakaq for some ukes finally going to to Koolau for a slothead tenor Pineapple....off to open the shop by 11:00 ( i was late Lol) and star the ordeal of safely boxing and getting all these ukes to the Festival....We were also very busy at the shop so it was a hectic day.. I am still at work and now finally doing my paperwork so i can go home and pack wake at 4:00am then heat to the airport,,,,,,Ahhhhhh as long as i dont get muscle cramps tonight ( illness related ) i will be in good shape and smiling in the morn...oppphs back to work

Have a safe flight.
I was in Tahoe last weekend for an annual ski trip/visit my ca friends and it was freezing! Lots of snow and wind, I think there's more on the way this week. I forgot how dry the air gets- take good care of those beautiful instruments. I'm sure everyone at the festival will love them!

Have a nice trip man! I wish you brought that haul in last week while I visited the shop. I think I might have bought the concert Scepter if you had one then.

I'll bet it also makes a monster tone! A Ko'olau custom pineapple is now on my "someday" wishlist.

Good luck and keep yourself warm!!!

Is that slothead tenor Pineapple a special order? That sounds like it could be the next subject if my UAS!!!

I'm going to be at the Reno Festival! I can't believe I'm going to get to meet one of the greatest guys on the Ukulele Underground in person. Will you be accepting credit cards at the Festival or would a buyer need to have cash?

May you have a safe and uneventful flight!

I don't know why the Nor Cal and Reno Uke fests picked the same weekend. I would have gone to both. Oh well, guess I'll settle for Daniel Ho workshops & the Nor Cal fest because they are closer. Hopefully next year MGM can make it to Nor Cal!

i do not believe threads are for individual inquiries and should be conducted thru business email or pm pictures of the whole festival and the ukuleles will be posted.

The Nor Cal Fest has always been scheduled for the 1st weekend of April. The Reno Fest is usually scheduled for mid March. The organizers decided to reschedule and move the dates back probably because of weather concerns. Just my thoughts . . .
