I will be in Maine (South Casco - on Thomas Lake - near Sebago)but will be gone by Labor Day.
I would have loved to be a part of the party.
My mom lives there but I live in Brooklyn, NY.
I have a new August Forster 215 (7'2"). I would much rather live in Maine but my occupation doesn't pay enough up there - (Church Music Director/organist/choir director). The metropolitan areas pay decent salaries w/benefits and there are many more funerals and weddings due to the population. If I win the Lottery, I'll move immediately and buy a house with a room big enough for my piano! And I would host a piano party for everyone else.
I think it is great to hear other people play your piano.

Have fun at the party. I'm jealous!

Well, darn, Erad, I'm sorry you won't be able to make it - from one church organist to another. Maybe we'll get a chance to meet at one of the many NYC area parties and events.

Hi Kathy,

Unfortunately I won't be able to make it to Maine, but if the Cape event is still happening in October, I'd love to do those 4 hand works we threatened last year. Do you still have any interest?

Hi Terrytunes....
Will be nice to see you in Maine. Please don't forget to bring my music.
We will also need your GPS! \:\)
Can't wait to try Kathy's grand.
Will be a fun time.

I have just joined this group and live in Rockport, Maine. I would love to participate in (enjoy) the Maine gathering. I am available just about anytime in August, but the 6th of September is probably not possible. I do not have an address (even a town), so it may depend on how long a trip it is from here. If it is on the coast it shouldn't be more than an hour. Please let me know the place and time.

I am an intermediate player, have a Bosie grand (just a year old this month!), and am passionate about playing and listening to piano. Thanks....CBS

A Bosie grand! Lucky. I'm in Auburn. Rockport is about a 1 1/2 hour drive. You would head to Augusta, and from there take the turnpike south which is about 1/2 hour drive.

I haven't set a time yet, other than the Sept 6 date, but I'm thinking probably 1 pm or so. I hope you can make it.

Terry, so glad to see that you'll be coming!

Kathy, I'm trying to plan ahead for this trip. Can you give us the names of some motels in your area that would be reasonably priced? Jerry and I are really looking forward to seeing you again
and hearing some great piano music.

Linda, here are a few suggestions.

In Auburn, we have a fairly new Hilton.
Hilton Gardens River Watch

There's also the Ramada Inn in Lewiston - 10 minutes from us.
Ramada Inn

And Fireside Inn which is just off the turnpike in Auburn.

And also near the Auburn Turnpike exit is Sleepy Time Motel

Across the River just 5 minutes away, in the Bates College area is a nice bed and breakfast

Ware Street Inn

A 15 minute drive from us is another really nice sounding B&B on one of the local lakes - Wolf Cove Inn

And if you want to be near the coast, Freeport is your best bet, which is about 1/2 drive from us
Freeport B&Bs

Whoopee! The party is coming up soon. I'm hoping to get a fairly accurate head count by early next week. I'll PM everyone directions when you confirm.

There should be a lot of good playing. I looped in an oboe player I met recently when we played together at a wedding a few weeks ago. She's Julliard trained, but out of the professional loop at the moment and itching to play. Bernard and I are both doing pieces with her, so it will add a little non-piano texture to the afternoon.

So, here's who I've tallied up so far.

Bernard
Beelady
Roberta
Quirt (+2 Quirtlets maybe)
Terrytunes (+?)
Frank Baxter
Larry Buck(+1 maybe)
Jeremy & Linda Gloo
John Citron
Ed B
Billy Jo (oboe)
Nancyw (maybe)
JeanneW (maybe)
Irishmark (maybe)

Kathy,

I wish I could make it, unfortunately it's now a bit more of a drive for me.

See this thread:
http://www.pianoworld.com/ubb/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?/topic/1/23557.html

Please take/post lots of pictures.
Have a great time everyone, I'll be thinking about you.

Aw darn, Frank! I missed that. Not only don't I get to have the grand master grace my party, but we're not neighbors anymore. Waaaaaa! But, looking beyond my selfish motives, it sounds like a good move for you, and I wish you the best in your new endeavors.

I can't make it, either. I have family coming up that weekend, and it will be the first time the great-grandparents (and a couple of great-aunts!) have met our now 6 month old grandson. Sorry, really wish I could be there.

Stevetunes and I will be in attendance, also!

I'm looking forward to this gathering and meeting up and sharing good times with good friends! :3hearts:

I'm trying to convince my lil' sissy, Marytunes into coming along. She took piano lessons for a fair amount of time because of my good influence!!! \:D

KK.. other than a fruit tart, please give me some other suggestions for contributions to the food table.

I'll be hanging out down here with Hanna, Ike, and Josephine :-(

Hi Kathyk,

Terry just pm'd me about this gathering. I am so close... only in Brunswick. Only problem is my wife has taken off for a wedding and I'm home with kids and animals. One of our horses has gone badly lame and I need to be close by and keep soaking his hoof. All that said... if I can I would like to at least drop by and say hi (and listen to some piana playin:) ) could you PM me directions?

Peyton

It would wonderful if you could stop by - even if just for a bit. As I said earlier, I've yet to meet another Maine PW member. Directions will follow in a PM shortly.

Kathy- so sorry I can't make it today. I'm stuck in Deer Isle and won't be back until Monday. Hope the storm doesn't mess things up. Please keep me on your list- I'd love to meet some other piano lovers from Maine. Thanks again!! Best, Nancy

Well, at least Deer Isle isn't too bad a place to be stuck. Hopefully next time.

Larry Buck is currently working wonders on the piano, and I'm just taking a break from sous chef duties before others start to arrive.
