October 2019 Newsletter

Well, the weather folks tell us it is nearly fall, but with temperatures still close to 100 degrees, it's hard to believe. Hope wherever you live finds you doing

We are working on the 2020 Jamboree and lots of fun for all! We hope you have made your
reservations. If the Sheraton says they are full, be sure to contact the Doubletree Hilton (our overflow hotel) at 972-929-8181. They will have a shuttle available during the Jamboree for our attendees.

We had a very good meeting in September and a good crowd. Joan Cox did an outstanding set with very tasty tunes and great execution. Steve Lamb was unable to make it since had to be out of town. We will get him for a future meeting. For October, we have Junior Knight and Skip Pilgrim with us for the meeting. Be sure you make this one!!

The TSGA has been contacted by the City of Greenville, TX about the Bob Wills Day on the 2nd of November. They have asked us to bring two steel players to play and talk about Western Swing steel guitar and some of the players that have performed with the Bob Wills' band. We will also talk about how the steel guitar has evolved from resonator guitars to what we have today. We are excited to be a part of this event and share about our organization and the upcoming Jamboree, as well as, our monthly meetings at the Doubletree Hilton that are open to the public. Dennis Bailey and I will do this presentation at the Empty Glass Steakhouse and Saloon from 2pm until 4pm on Saturday, November 2, 2019. We would love to have some of our members in attendance to support the club. We will have fliers about the 2020 Jamboree to give out. Please come if you can.

Please let us know how everyone is doing and if you have any questions about anything, give us a call at 817-558-3481. Ticket sales are open online, as well as, the information about the show. Blessings to all!!
