Apathy or what!

Come on lets have a few people joining in, it will be a great day and a chance to play on a whole heap of lovely Tokais.

If I'm prepared to drive 250 miles with a Marshall stack to attend this, surely you can make the effort!

I am still up for this convention! I agree with stratman that somewhere north of the river would be better for me but can make anywhere in London at a push. I think that the main thing is to just meet up to be honest, it would be a shame to lose the momentum here.

Best regards,
Mole Man

I may be wrong but I think that many members may be selective about which forum catagories they read and consequently some may not have seen these posts. There may be a better response if something was posted in the 'Announcements' & 'Tokai Guitars' catagories as I imagine most people read these.

Done. I usually try to avoid spamming several different categories, but I've created two more threads as suggested.

Well done. I don't like cross posting either but I thought it was worth a try.

The posting in 'Announcements' is still there but the one in 'Tokai Guitars' has disappeared. Surely it hasn't been pulled. :roll: After all. these posts are meant for the benefit of Tokai owners and players. Surely they don't count as spam or abuse?

Mike, I would suggest dropping Ned a PM and ask if he'll create a sticky in a couple of high profile threads for a week or two.

That sounds ideal.

So is there really no interest in the convention/get-together, whatever you want to call it, apart from 3 or 4 of us? :o

It's a real shame, if that's the case. :cry:

Can't understand the lack of support for this Mike! If people can spend the time to type about guitars, surely a chance to play loads of them would be worth the effort, it's certainly appeals to me!

So who've we got

me JohnA
Mike Stratman323
Rossi
jawilluk
Mole Man
Gabe Bluejeannot

I think if we can get it up to 10, it's worth doing!

Sounds reasonable, I'm happy to give it a go if we can get to 10. Are you still out there, Gabe? :o

Anyone else?

Surely we are overlooking the possibility that some of us could bring along guitarist friends who share our passion for Tokais etc but perhaps are not (yet) members of this fine forum? Is this a possibility at all or must the participants be strictly forumites?
