krs10 - mailorder

yeah.... that was a bit of a trick....I see now it is $29 for the tix.....well you may still win the tix for your letter.............then you will have extras!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"GDTS TOO will hold yet another fabulous envelope contest for this
tour. The winner will receive 2 free tickets to the show of their choice."

I have some hand drums, and love to jam.

Peterborough is a somewhat familiar area as I used to go to college in Lindsay !!!

hope you all are well and Merry Christmas friends !!!

Make that 2010

And the extra fee for the mailorder... all I could find in all my searches was the price of the ticket, $25, but later I found that there was an additional $4 charge for each mailorder ticket. Argh! I did include my postage, however, and a nice envelope design so I hope someone got a kick out of that.

Chris! Great to hear from you. I like that even though I was confused as to Playin's geographical whereabouts, you came through with the Lake Huron connection. Happy accident! Playin, I think I assumed that your reference to Lk Huron in your profile referred to your residence. Maybe in spirit...

Glad there's some interest in getting together. Maybe we should take Chris up on his offer. It seems like a good midpoint. You are, of course, welcome to visit in Peterborough anytime as well. In the meantime, better brush up on my Dead jams. Do you play an instrument, Chris?

Peace
K

Hello

Hi all Canadian Heads...checking in...some fun ideas floating about.

K,

Glad you got some tickets for your Valentine get away. ........ :) ......

.....and....a get together you say,

Well that sounds like a fine idea. I would love to come campout in Peterborough and hang out with you and other folk from this forum.

Chris and K,

Oh I wish I were in the wilds of Lake Huron. I live and work in London. I get to lake huron when I can, mainly in the warmer weather. My aunt has a cottage on the lake that we use when we can.

waller88,

thanks for the invite, wish I could make it.

krs10 and Playin...

Playin....... hows tricks ??? Just noticed some talk about you living near Lake Huron. I live near Mildmay on Hwy # 9, we are about 45 min to Kincardine and I have been here for about 10 years. Love the beach at Kincardine, Cypress and the grotto in the summer.

krs10.......Can Heads gathering sounds like a fun idea. I have a 2.5 acre property here with lots of room for camping if anyone wants to come for a visit this summer. Beaches and parks close by but not alot to do in the general vicinity ( surrounded by corn fields in summer ). What was the extra fee you forgot to include in your mail order ??? ( postage ???). I also sent in a neat envelope for Buffalo drawn by my daughter again ( she got me 6th row center for Buffalo last spring ) hoping for some more great seats.

Hope you all are doing great..............peace................Chris :)

Well, I found out yesterday that there was an additional charge for the mail order tix that I didn't include. I looked everywhere for that info, but the GDTSTOO page must have not been loading because of overuse. Anyway, I was feeling a bit defeated about that when I realized that tix would go onsale today. I expected to be hitting "refresh" for an hour or two, but I got our 2 tickets on my first try!!!! Me and my man will now definitely be going on our version of a romantic Valentine's vacation, weather permitting. Oh, I am so relieved... and happy!

Hi Playin, Richard, et al

I was thinking about what you've been posting, Playin, re: not having a GD cover band to listen to out there in the wilds of Lake Huron, and jamming with friends, perhaps leading to a GD band. It takes me back to my first band, which was a GD cover band here in Peterborough, called Zen Again. I also put together a project named after the fictional GD in Kesey's Sailor Song: the Dreadful Great. I've been playing GD music for like, 13yrs now, and mostly at home and around campfires, but I'm always threatening to start up another project.

Anyhoo, I was thinking that a little outdoor gathering might be just the way to meet you kind folk. Looking ahead to summertime, I thought I could host a party here in Peterborough - an almost somewhat halfway point btwn Montreal and Lk Huron... and then I thought about group camping. I always like coming to Lake Huron - what part of the Lake are you on, Playin? Pinery, Kincardine, or closer to the Bruce? I have cool farmer friends in Grey County, too. We teacher-types are more available come summertime... so maybe we could do a little camping and jamming to get properly introduced. I know it's tricky to get around with kids, so maybe it'd be fun to come closer to you. And a Montreal road trip would be fine, too. Just thought it might be nice to find a way to bring us together.

Have a super great day, you friendly freaks!

Love, K

Hello out There!

Hi Gang,

Well I'm smiling yet again.
Thanks K for the link. Sure enjoyed reading through that again (especially the Dead's Rothbury Play-by-Play). The mentioning of when the band really took off. Reminded me of that feeling from this year's show in Buffalo (April 21st). It was during Eyes of the World......I was so overwhelmed with positive emotion/feelings and lift off effects I just sat sat down and let it wash over me.......WOW!!!!! I will never forget it!

Peace, Love and all the Good Things,
