We're putting on our annual meeting this year at the University of Georgia's School of Music at Athens Georgia on the weekend of April 23-24. Guest speakers currently lined up are Jerry Pasewicz (discussing bow rehair) and Pablo Alfaro (setup and bridge cutting). Chris Germain was scheduled to discuss an upcoming book on the American Violin, but just informed me he couldn't attend. I have room for, and need one more presenter. Maybe 2. Last year, we held our meeting at Beauvinci Violins in Alpharetta, Georgia, and had 37 attendees, with standing room only, that's why we're moving it to ehe University of Georgia, and expanding it through Sunday morning for those interested in staying an extra half day for one-on-one with more experienced makers doing critiques on workmanship and tone as well. We are a tax-exempt organization, we appreciate volunteers, but for the right person, we may be able to help a little with expenses getting to/from. Any Ideas?
