    I will be there likely Thurs & Friday; however, sans uke. Still, if schedule permits, will stop by the Grassy Noll Gathering.

    Friday for the grassy knoll jam gets my vote.
    UWC; only those who have not been can rationalize not going.

    For those of you that have not come to the grassy knoll jam, I highly recommend attending. Here's an example of what can happen.

    - What's new from Kamaka, Kanile'a (including Islander), KoAloha (including Opio), and Ko'olau (including Pono)?

    - Any news from Blackbird, Collings, Larrivée, Pepe Romero and Romero Creations?

    - What's up with Rick Turner / Compass Rose?

    - Will Martin be celebrating their Centennial of building Ukuleles?

    - Also, very interested in crossover instruments like Tenor Guitars (ask Larrivée about their plans), Guitaleles (check out the Ibanez Piccolo), and Ukes with Steel Strings (ask Pono). Perhaps you could ask companies specifically about their plans regarding innovation, as players worldwide are not just looking for traditional style, but new ways of expanding their musical horizons and their instrument collections...?
    Thanks so much! I'll try and get to those as much as I can. We pretty much cover the first three points but the Martin centennial is interesting. I'll make sure to ask! We try to hit up as many uke and uke related companies as we can so we can let you know what they're up to.
    GET AWESOME!

    You can still come out to the grassy knoll jam! Seems like Friday night is the night. We'll be right in front of the Anaheim convention center.

    NAMM questions - Anything Kamaka can share about their 100th would be welcome. Maybe ask the other companies what they think about Kamaka and Martin's 100th, memories or stories to share?

    If you want to be investigative, maybe try to talk Martin into doing something for their 100th, and ask if they'll continue building in the US since they've discontinued some models lately?

    Can't wait to see your coverage. Mahalo and good luck with the tour!
    We're extremely grateful to all the people who come out and support us. We're very happy to see the shows selling well. We'll definitely cover the 100th anniversary stuff as much as we can. I'll try and get as much as I can out of Martin about their plans.

    I'm sure they're working on it if they haven't already. We'll ask them when we get the chance!

    I am thinking Friday for the Grassy Knoll jam... but... really I am there every day so any day is fine with me
    Friday night sounds great. Kanile'a isn't doing a party this year out of respect to Kamaka doing things throughout the weekend. Which means, I don't have any obligations except for the Saturday performance.

    Cheeehoooo! Friday night at the grassy knoll seems to be getting the popular vote. I'll keep this thread updated.
