Maine
Edit: Party will be Sept. 6 at 1 PM in Auburn, ME. PM me for directions and contact information.

This is a feeler to see if I can rustle up interest in a party in Maine for the weekend of August 16 or 23. We are about a half hour up the Turnpike north of Portland - about 2 or 2 1/2 hours north of Boston (depending on how fast you drive wink ). I don't have any great lure except for my Seiler 180 which I promise to have freshly tuned and the glory of Maine during the summer months. Oh - and depending on how many people are interested, probably some form of lobster offering. laugh

Planning on attending! The Lobster did it!

(just kidding - I live in globstertown, Mass)

I posted on another forum, but maybe we should gather here for our posts, enticing a few to travel to New England?

Can bring food from the garden - pesto etc!

I'll be there! Storm chasing season is over, and it's only an 1-1/2 hours for me up Route 95. The 16th is the best for me too. laugh

I haven't been to Maine in years, would love to join you if I'm still in this area then.

And you know I love lobsta!

Hey Frank,

You gonna catch the lobsters for our party?

If so, I want a claw off the big one...I'll bring the butter!

BTW, did you get to eat that sucker or was that like eating the profits?

Well, now that there's a little bit of interest percolating, I'm going to throw a curve ball. A couple people at WTF have indicated that they can't make the either August date, so I was wondering if September might be better; I'm thinking maybe the 6th or 13th.

I know it's impossible to make it work for everyone, but I want to get a sense of who could/would come when.

Frank, thanks for adding the pictorial. laugh

Hi Kathy
We will try to attend either month. Sounds terrific. We will keep checking. I have alerted some of the Cape folks and will advise them of the possibility of Sept.also.
Best to you and yours!

September 13-14 we will be in Wells, ME for a 2 day chili cook off at Wells Harbor. Of course, that means I would not be able to make the piano party, but you are all welcome to come to Wells on either day to taste some chili, if it is that weekend! It's a great cook off- craft vendors, food, chili, beautiful location right on the water.
Oh, heck, you're all welcome to come to ME for the cook off, even if Kathy's party is NOT that weekend! LOL

As for the party, the weekend of the 6th is open for me.

Kathy and Jack are great hosts and I would love to attend if I wasn't going on a month-long road trip to the Pacific Northwest.

Hello Maine folks. I am up on Deer Isle until September but after that would love to connect with other Maine piano lovers so if the party is in September, count me in. If not, maybe next time! Thanks. Nancy Mackay

I would love to head up that way but the 16th is my middle guy's birthday so I don't think I'll be able to get away around that time.

Frank:

How big was that lobster held in your picture?

I ask because I noted this from a lobster fact site:

The largest (recorded) lobster caught was 42.4 lbs., had a carapace length of 14.9 inches and a total body length of 24.1 inches (two feet!). It was caught in 1934 and was probably at least 100 years old.

I recall reading that in colonial times indentured sailors signed contracts before working on any marine vessel. They were allowed fish or meat two days a week, and on the other five days they were forced to eat lobster. Lobsters were not only extremely plentiful but records indicate they were enormous, many of them over 3 feet. Their flesh was tough as shoe leather, so it's no wonder the sailors hated them.

I would be interested in coming. It would just be a matter of timing as I live in NC but come to Portland nearly every week with work. (pilot) I'll watch for the final date and hope the schedule allows for me to be there. Thanks.

Hi, Kathy:

Aug 16 is a definite no go for us, we have company from out of state that weekend. Sep would be better, but then we usually take a week of vacation the 1st or 2nd week, though we haven't planned anything yet, so that's also kinda iffy. :rolleyes: I hope we can make it though. I'd enjoy seeing you again and I bet your Seiler is a beauty! Keep us posted on the dates.

Alrighty then, since a couple of you have said the 13th isn't good, but I don't recall that anyone has has ruled out the 6th, let's make it September 6th. Can't wait!

Hi Kathy.......
September 6th sounds like a plan. Looks good for us.
Planning to take some time off and your party will be a wonderful start. Will Peter be there to dazzle us with his artistry?
Looking forward to meeting your grand.

Hi Kathy,

I just put Sept 6 on my calender. I don't see any conflicts for me, but Roberta will have to check her calender.

What town are you in? Portland, Rockland, Thomaston? Maine is a big place.

That would be great if you both could attend, Ed. We're in Auburn which is about 1/2 north of Portland. We're an easy stop off of the turnpike.

Also, you should let Ed Papier know.
