Tick Tock Tick Tock...its almost here

So, Raystock is less than a week away, and I am very excited for it. For all interested, there will be an article about it in the Bridgeton Evening News either tomorrow or Tuesday, so check that out if you can. I have been working very hard on it, and a few things are going wrong, but I think in the end it will all work out, as it usually does.

I am encouraging everyone to try and come out as early as possible and support all the bands that are going to be playing. I feel bad for the bands who because of the luck of the draw have to play early and then they dont have people there to watch them.

Next order of business. I wanted to publicly (sort of) thank the people (very few i might add) that have helped me. First and foremost Kate who not only is gonna be there from beginning to end (what a trooper) but she also took time to post things on websites dealing with South Jersey events which resulted in the Bridgeton Evening News article...To top it all off she is going to either bake or bring cookies for the band room. I must also let it be known that Steph will be contributing to some food in the band room as well.

I also have to give mad respect to my girl Adrienne. She has like been my companion through much of this Raystock process, including hitting up like all the WAWA's we could think of in South Jersey and hanging up flyers, venturing out to Wal-Mart to buy things to make flyers. Going to different bars to try and find gigs for a band playing here from out of town, to make the trip worth while for them. Making food for the band room as well, and just lots of other stuff.

This of course doesnt mean they were the only people that helped me. But they are the ones that are the most deserving of my thanks I believe. Reason being, if i had a problem or wanted an opinion, I know I could ask them no problem. Whereas other people I asked acted like I was troubling them pretty much every time I asked them. Don't worry though, I remember who you are, and when it comes time for favors in return....well, lets just say "do unto others as they do unto you". But unfortunately I am too nice of a person, and I tend to do favors for people even when they are most definately not deserving of them.

Much love has to go to Sammy Santos who for the past two years has helped me out tremendously. If you like the look of the flyers or the t-shirts or even the website from the past two years, well we have him to thank. As well as Charlie for keeping the website going!

Wow, it sounds like I'm making an acceptance speech or something. Seriously though, its been a crazy tough year, and a crazy hard time for me to get this thing together, given the fact that the parents have retired, so keeping this event going has been a task now put on my shoulders. So all the help I get, I am very thankful for. And I'm very thankful to know such good people who are willing to give their time and money and energy and not expect anything in return. See You all next Saturday. November 13th, Bridgewater Pub...Bridgeton from 2 PM-1AM...Rock ON!!! :)

No problemo being of help. Wish I could do a LOT more. Here's the Bridgeton News article btw...wish it had pictures:

You should try to get a hard copy of it (I'm sure you will). Perhaps we could scan it in...

great profile shot of me in one of the know i was once told i looked like a mole by a good friend of mine, and i would have to say that from the side, i most definitely agree with that statement.

hey, it could be worse, i could look like a wild boar, and i think that there are a few people around that find moles to be quite adorable!

I don't think I deserve any thanks, only because I haven't done much. Although, I have been promoting. Also, I know you've had a few bands back out and I'm thinking maybe Poodle's band might want to play if they think they're ready. I dunno, you'll have to talk to him.
