Hey folks,
I know it's fairly last-minute and on a school/work day, but I'm going to be visiting the Frazier Historical Arms Museum next Tuesday, 10/25. Anyone from the forums want to carpool or meet down there?

Happy

Sadly, I'm several states away and lacking a car. Looks great though, so have fun and bring back pics for those of us who can't go, please!

Would love to go back down but I have to take my son to open mat on Tuesday night.

Have fun and take plenty of digital memory. If you can get there early enough make sure to catch some of the interpretive presentations. During my visits they were fun.

BTW...if you ever decide you need to drive to the Higgens someday let me know a bit father in advance! Big Grin

I've never been there and would love to go but, alas work... kids... responsibilities. Guess there are great advantages to the musician's life.Laughing Out Loud


...hey check it out, my 100th post! Big Grin

...yeah, but it can be very demanding but also tons of fun (as a member of a college marching band, I can say that with full merit Razz . I wouldn't give it up for the world though!).

That would be great Chad, but I have a 3:30 class on Tuesdays followed immediately by band practice. That would be cool if we could all meet at a place like that. I'll make it there in the near future hopefully...

Yeah, poverty and a lack of job security are the "perks." Happy Actually, my orchestra schedule happens to be clear that day, I don't teach music lessons on Tuesdays, and (the big reason) my day job is off for one of the Jewish holidays. So it all just came together.

Joe,
I'd love to road trip to the Higgins, though I'd be more likely to hit the Cleveland Museum of Art or the Chicago Art Inst. or even the Metropolitan Museum first.

I figured a school/work day would be a stretch for most everyone. Normally I wouldn't be able to do it, either, but the stars (or more accurately, my schedule) aligned to allow it this time.

Happy

Glad you have the opportunity, Chad! I think it's pretty cool of you to make the offer - hit or miss, it is fun to get together with folks. If I were closer, I'd make the trip.

I have a love/hate thing with my work schedule. I'm offshore 14 days, then off at home for the next 14. Makes for a really long time at work - that's effectively about a 348 hour work day, but for a 2-week vacation every month... I'll take it before any normal 9-5, M-F gig. Now, if I just had access to these cool museums, living history events, and the like in a reasonable travel range, I'd be all over it.

I have a hate/hate relationship thing with my job. I don't have your schedule, nor do I have ready access to anything other than tumble weeds and cow dung.

Chad,

Perhaps something to consider when I get this school stuff out of the way next year.

About Cleveland though, I think they are renovating and expanding things, and closing the Armour Court for a time. The whole museum is suppose to close from January-June 2006.

Definitly going to be important to check with them before you go, but having been there once I can say the visit to everything can make a nice day or two. Its all on Case Western Reserve University campus, on an oval with other museums actually. Pretty easy to get in and out of.

It was nice. Certainly worth the drive. Pictures? Of course. I took hundreds of pictures. Happy

All the decent ones will be uploaded to one of the photo albums eventually and readers can expect a more formal report with pictures down the road. Patience, grasshopper. Happy
