I would also love to attend but I would have a little bit further to come than you Billy.  In the time it would take you to get to the factory, I wouldn't even have got to the airport!! [:D]

It would also be better for me if it was early next year as I have no annual leave left for this year.[:(]

Anyway, I am sure BillyT said they were looking to try and tie something up for September or October and try and work it for when a couple of Parker artists were in the vacinity.

Hi David-

yeah, I hear you all around...! My leave time is getting thin too. Would be great to meet the people here.  Hope you can attend when it happens.

I remember seeing Terry's post but not where it is.  

Also, Sept starts tomorrow!  Time flies...  just hoping maybe there was some new info, so I can kind of sketch things in, but I certainly don't want to be a pain in the nether regions.

Billy

Sad to say, but I won't certainly be able to be present. I'm too busy with work in this period

Huh? You...work?

My dear fellow! I most certainly had you pegged as a full time gentleman of leisure. My favorite movie is the Italian flick "The Easy Life" with Vittorio Gassman, and somehow pictured you in the lead role.

This cometh as a ghastly shock indeed.
Nevertheless, your attendance in Chicago this fall is mando.
Don't miss it....

that's funny...  upon reflection, I think I sort of had the same impression, but not really.  If that makes any sense.

Sorry to hear you won't make it Marco.

I'm still interested, even though it's a looong way for me too.

September is crazy busy for me, but October is great!  Also, I'd be happy to serve as the archivist for the tour, as I had a chance to go in 2008.

Terry, any word on when this is?

My wife needs to go to Chicago to have her once-a-year maintenance on her violin so I'm hoping to get that trip to coincide with a factory tour. The sooner I know the dates, the better!
