Looks like it's been about a year since we last had a piano get-together in Denver.

While Randy was working on my piano today, he and I were talking about getting the Denver piano group going again.

I'd be willing to host a get-together sometime in October, November, or December.

I'll also send out PMs to those who have shown interest in the past and let them know of this thread.

Looking forward to getting this group going again!

Couple of other things...

Randy may be willing to host in October. If he does that, I could host the next one after the first of the year.

I'm also thinking of starting a Meetup group to find other piano enthusiasts in the Denver area who would be interested in such a group.

If you don't check the forum regularly, please feel free to send me a PM with your E-mail address so I can start putting together a mailing list.

Any thoughts?

Hi -

>Looks like it's been about a year since we last had a piano get-together in Denver.
I'm in. The last Denver area PW party one was only 6 mo ago at my place however (you missed it!)

I would have instigated it again, but the pieces I am working on are not coming along so quickly (bummer).

Thanks for making the call though. Looking forward. I could have some biz travel here and there, but I'll be in touch about that.

Best regards-

After ten summers in the high country, we've decided to sell the cabin and move back fulltime to Texas (and, wow, is it hot here!). So, alas, we'll not be able to attend parties in Denver any more. Sadly, you may as well take us off the list.

If anyone wants to buy a really cute fully furnished 2 bedroom, 1 bath house near Fairplay, mountain views, moose frequently in the yard, mosquito-free screened porch, dishwasher, washer-dryer, wood stove, t&g ceiling, skylights, perfect ski getaway - 30 min. to Breck and MUCH cheaper - or summer cabin, just let me know !!! $199,000 smile

It depends entirely on the weather, but I've loved the Denver parties. I'll check out the meet up group. . .

Randy has confirmed for Saturday, October 11 at 1:30PM!

Following is the notice I sent to the meetup group.

The Denver Area Piano Group is about to have its first meetup at the home and workshop of Randy Karasik.

Randy works as a piano tuner/technician, and also plays jazzy, improvisational piano music. Bring your sheet music with anything you'd like to play - any style of music you enjoy!

We'll also be joined by Denver area members of the Piano World forums, who have occasionally gotten together in the past for in-person meets.

Please RSVP and let everyone know if you can make it! Looking forward to the 11th, and meeting everyone!

---

Please send a private message to Randy Karasik or to me if you need the address or directions.

I sent PMs to Inlanding and jotur to see if they're interested in coming on the 11th. I don't have any personal E-mail addresses or phone numbers for them; the only way I know to contact them is through the forum. Hopefully, they'll join this thread soon...

Cathy, - the links thread I created was to get rid of all the stickies - basically every event on the first page was a sticky, which seemed to defeat the purpose of having them.

I have been really busy and haven't gotten back to adding in more. It's an ongoing project, like the "important info" thread in ABF.

Sorry that you, or anyone else, felt like your parties weren't interesting or important enough, that certainly wasn't my intention.

Randy!
Thanks for hosting, and a great host you were. Great piano too. The music kept flowing and it was all good.
I'll will post media, but it will take some time.
