UPDATE: Although no compulsory, some of us instrument owners will be meeting at Lagoon Food Center for early dinner at 4PM on event day (this Saturday). If you would like to join us and also to get the latest scoop on private equip sale offerings, please ping me. Thanks!

BTW, Clubsnap has helped to publicise this event too!
