On 10/18 I asked for myself and my daughter in the original thread ( http://www.pianoworld.com/ubb/ubb/ultimatebb.php?/topic/22/178.html ).

Please let me know if we make the cut...

JeffBC - of course you're welcome! We do have an age limit I'm afraid - - how old is your daughter?

Bob,

Age limit huh, my guess is she won't pass muster then, but let me know.

Photos of her and I on the Mason & Hamlin tour back in May are at http://www.pianoworld.com/ubb/ubb/ultimatebb.php?/topic/22/147/3.html (scroll down to where it says, "Alanna and Dad (JeffBC)."

She was 4 on the M&H tour and she'd be 5 on the Steinway Tour. She's been studying Piano at the Yamaha School in Lexington, MA since she was 3. (All her idea BTW, I'm not trying to turn her into a pianist - she's genuinely interested hence she stayed attentive throughout that entire 15 hour day (tour+afterparty).

Bob,

I can tell you Jeff's daughter was better behaved than most of the adults, and lasted longer. (As he suggested, see the pictures/stories from the M&H tour)

I also know she stays with Dad, and does what she's told.

If it's possible to allow her to attend, she will be fine.

Best,

Frank B.

Thanks for the kind words Frank.

Given how much fun we had at M&H, we decided we'd like to visit all remaining USA piano factories. If we get to Steinway, we'll be halfway there (Baldwin and Charles Walter being the other two) - isn't that sad - only 4 left (Rubenstein isn't big enough (yet)).

Hello again JeffBC -
we look forward to both you and your daughter joining us for the tour... and as a dad, and a grandfather - - I will particularly enjoy meeting your little girl. What you're doing is wonderful - and it reminds me of a whole ton of years ago, when I took my own daughter (about 8 then, 33 now) on a business trip with me. It's a precious memory that no one can take away - and I'm honored to play a small part in what will hopefully become a special day for you and your daughter.

Is it too late to count me in? I'd love to go. At NYU I had the privilege of performing on a Horowitz Steinway--best piano I ever played, as you can imagine! I'm still in NYC. I make my own hours, so whenever you settle on a date and time, I'm good. Just let me know. Thanks!

Hello everyone -
With regard to parking, we have arranged for reserved parking for you, in our Foreman's parking lot - which is right there at the factory. We have about 30 spaces - so this should cover it.

I look forward to meeting you all - and our President, Ron Losby, also will be there and looks forward to saying hello. Additionally, I'd like to invite my colleague from the Northeast to come and say hello as well.

Thank you.

Hi everyone,

Mmmm, pretty tempting.

What about (reasonnable) hotels, accomodations in Manhattan or Queens? Or maybe a B&B. Those of you from NY must have an idea. Any help appreciated.

Bob, The parking news is great and will be a big help in getting things underway on time! I look forward to meeting you, Ron Losby and your colleague.

Hi Mario, There's lots of Hotels in the area. The Steinway factory is not far from LaGuardia airport. As for reasonable, well this is New York. I could look into it if you like. I hope you can make it.

Ok, now I'm starting to feel left out.

Please take pictures wherever/whenever you are allowed, but particularly get some group shots.

We traditionally get a group shot under/over/around a grand (see most any forums party, or other tours).

I'm hoping you get into the tryout room this tour too (it was being used when we toured last year).

I'm jealous. If I wasn't 1400 miles away I'd join you :-)

Have fun everyone, and don't forget to give us a full report afterwards.
