Red Special Meet up proposal…


Dear all

Iv been thinking about this a lot recently about holding a red special meet up. The last one was a success in Sheffield by Adam Bent, where he did a great job.

But since then no one else has held anything like that since and that was nearly 3 and half years ago in 2005…

I hope to organise a similar event quite local to me in Buckinghamshire.

Around mid July this summer 2008

……………………………………………………………………………………..

The hall / Venue I have in mind is quite large and has some good facilities, with a lot of parking.. and if some of you are interested a large children's play area.

The venue is Located in, Buckinghamshire, Its halfway between 2 major towns Aylesbury and High Wycombe.

More details to follow in time....

45 mins from London by train (Chiltern railways London to Birmingham line), with good bus link to venue
It has a good bus service near it running every 20 mins, that's for anyone local.

Main motorways which are close are the M40, M1. I will give further details how to get there when confirmed.

I hope to have the meet up on a weekend, in the summer, Saturday / Sunday depending on interest and what is best for people.

As before there would be small entrance fees + stall fees, This would depend on the cost of the hall.


This Post is to see how many people are interested in attending, so I can take it further and give some extra details later.


If anyone would like to contact me regarding the meet up or planning of it or any ideas, please contact me.

Redspecial_tk@hotmail.com

I'm collecting a list of email addresses if you want to be personally updated quickly.
to be added to the List - redspecial_tk@hotmail.com

Then after its all booked i will advertise the date, time, and small fees get in and for stalls.
Then i'l be making a list of who would like a stall so i can set the hall up. But if you all ready know you want a stand let me know.

thanks for your interest.

Extra Info -
Thought i better tell what its about actually haha!

The 1st RS meet up was in January 2005 at Sheffield.

The purpose of the meet up was to meet new people, exchange ideas, and also a few tips.

A number of people decided to display there own Homemade Guitars, that they had built, with the setup they run it through.

Other brought commerical copies to show and for others to try... examples:
Brian may guitar, Burns BM, RS guitars.... ect

The was also a stage where some people showed off there instruments and its sound. Some also got together and had ago at some Queen songs, as there was also drums, keyboard, and bass.

Some also brought there amps, effects and other bits and pieces to show off.

All in all a good day out.

That seems a bit...sterile.

I'd be up for getting as many RS owners in a room, as long as amps were compulsory....looking at the damn things mounted on tables is such a pointless exercise!

Bass/drums/keyboards sounds like a good idea though. I would love to have a bash through an AC30...

Yes that is also happening heres a small run down of what i hope could happen.

- Stage to perform on, Drums, Bass, Amps
- And area to try other equipment + effects
- Each person can play on stage
- There will be Home made Red specials
- Other commercial makes will also be there

so its interactive and you can learn alot, from talking to others, There will be playing going on throughout the day.
I will be hopefully bringing 2 ac30's and all my gear and guitars...

I think i will also open it up to anytype of homemade guitar, not just the one.

I hope this gives you some idea.
