Planning on going, the tentative line up of guests looks good The website includes Eventbrite registration, I imagine regiestering helps them justify the event.

I hope registering and bringing the ticket helps to get through security. They have tightened up security procedures for non-military personnel to get on base. They make you fill out a four-page form and you have to be approved. If there is an Army musician who can clarify this, it would be a real help.

It's getting a little late. Is the schedule posted anywhere yet?

Bear in mind they have an inauguration to deal with between now and then. We are fortunate to get this opportunity at all.

If you see any JP (John Packer) instruments at the JP booth in the elephant room that interest you,
feel free to contact me (901-465-XXXX) for a kick-butt low price, if you would like to buy it off the floor. I can even send an e-bill to your phone (via email).
I can also answer questions about the various models, if you have any.

I really wish I could be there, but alas - I have to play the tuba.

Anyone who has been here before: Where is the best place to stay, considering ease of getting there, cost, etc.? :D
There seems to be a hotel on base but it may just be for military temporary housing?
Bearin' up!

There is everything from cheap to luxury within a few miles of the base. I tend to go cheap. I've used the Best Western Pentagon and the Americana Hotel. Of the 2, I would use the Americana again. This year I'm using the cheapest available: The Inn of Rosslyn.

I will be there again this year, located in the same corner as usual. I am working towards having two of my CC tubas finished to show at the exhibit, and will show whatever "For Sale" instruments that are still available for sale by then. I'm really surprised that no one has jumped on this Yamaha 861 CC yet. The limited play-condition shop will be there, so if something happens to your instrument in transit, or you just want a minor instrument issue or two addressed, my assistants and I will do our best to serve you.

I plan to have Schlipf practice mutes on hand, as well as a few Dennis Wick and Humes and Berg mutes. I have a variety of mouthpieces to offer from various makers, new and gently pre-owned. If there is some item that you are looking for, no matter how unusual or mundane, please do not hesitate to ask about it. If you'd like a free written estimate of repairs or restoration of an instrument or mouthpiece, bring it and I'll write it up. We will be selling Hetman synthetic lubricants as well. And, everything will be offered at Convention Special pricing.
I look forward to visiting with everyone who can make it to this Conference!

The Metro subway system is doing track work on the lines (Orange, Blue, and Silver) that use the Rosslyn station near Ft Myer that weekend. But, all the affected stations are inside DC, and Rosslyn and points west are unaffected.

Just an FYI.

Holy cow, it has been 30 years since I participated in one of these TUSABTEC events. I played in the 1987 one in a massed military ensemble at the end on risers behind Pershing's Own, standing with Jan Duga and behind Brian Bowman. I thoroughly enjoyed a number of presentations and recitals. Tommy Johnson did a fabulous master class/recital and then on the last evening he played the Broughton (written for him, by the way) with Pershing's Own. What a great week in Brucker Hall, waaaaaay back in 1987...
In the multiverse there is a TubeNet where we talk about how we greased our cat with toothpaste and hot sauce so it would fly better in the rain. Even then someone would ask whether the cat was lacquered or silver plated.
