Hoedown XIII !!

Postby studiogirl » Thu Feb 16, 2017 6:13 pm

Briefly, so as not to clutter up the board with peripheral stuff...

Hoedown XIII will take place March 30-April 2 at the usual place: Palm Canyon Resort, Borrego Springs, CA.

All you have to do book a room* (at this resort or elsewhere) and show up at the meeting room. Just follow the sound...you'll find the meeting room.

Most of the usual crew will be there...and this year, our own Uncle Quinn is joining in the fun. See you in the desert in about 6 weeks!!



*If you want to join in the fun, book your room (or RV space) soon because the wildflower season is expected to be outrageous this year due to the large amount of rain (so far...and more is expected), and the flower gawkers will be thick as thieves, I'm sure.

Well, it flew by those other 12 long weekends, but the 51 weeks in between sometimes drag along....

It's about time you showed up! Here AND at the hoedown! Ya never know...at this point, each hoedown could be the last one. Sure wish you would join us...bring your own bass or play one of mine or Donna's!

I have always enjoyed all of the Hoedowns although I have never attended one! It just seems like you all have such a good time --every time. Is kind of like keeping one of the Poco traditions alive --- can't wait to read the posts afterwards and maybe see some of the music, as well. Thanks for doing what you do....keep it going!

I'm beginning to twitch... and not the way I normally twitch. I need a hoedown fix!

Protect them wheresoe'er they go.

I get anxious, but a good anxious, like a kid at Christmas time, as hoedown approaches. We have some "hoedown standards" you might want to practice to calm your nerves. They come up, usually more than once, at this event.

Byrds: You Ain't Going Nowhere (in G)

Little Feat: Willin' (in G)

Neil Young: Powderfinger (in G)

The Band: The Weight (in G)

Bob Seeger: Shame on the Moon (in A)

Pure Prairie League: Amie (in A)

Thx, Tim. I have never played any of those songs, so, I may have to be the audience!
