Default BeatleFair 2004--The Come Together Fan Club\'s (San Diego) Annual Beatle Celebration!!!

<font color="purple"> Hello all!!!

I am a member of the local Beatles Fan Club here in San Diego (Come Together) and every year during the summer, we have our big Beatle celebration--BeatleFair. It's been going for about 10 years now, and I've been to every single one so far! In the past we've had such guests as Walter Shenson, Gordon Waller (who will be there again this year), Lou Harrison, Denny Laine, Rusty Anderson (he came while in the middle of his tour with Paul), Sam Leach, Tony Sheridan (he'll be there this year again too), etc! It's always a TON of fun! This year our guests include: Jackie Lomax, Billy J Kramer, Gordon Waller, and many more (see below)!

Unlike years passed, this year's event will be two days long! We're really pleased about that! As well as our guests speakers (some of whom--like Tony and Gordon--will perform as well as talking about knowing the lads), we have tribute bands, a HUGE Beatles marketplace, the Honey Pie Pub, and so much more!!!

Anyway, thought that I would make you all aware of this, so that any of you who wish to make the trek to So. Cal. can do so for two great days of Beatles fun! Maybe we can even arrange to meet up in the little pub (like Dave and Nancy and I did last year!) Hoping very much to see some of you there!!!

Here's the basic info, and the link to the site--

July 17 &amp; 18: "BEATLE FAIR 2004 - A CELEBRATION OF 40 YEARS OF BEATLE SPIRIT"

I'll hopefully be there too. And this time, I promise I won't be a total flake and just pop in and take off. I want to meet all of you guys there for sure. I can use a few drinks anyway....

I probably can't make it both days, so any word on which day is going to have more events?

<font color="purple"> Hi Jerry!

No, unfortunatly there is no word yet on what is going to happen on either of the days at the Fair... the schedule of events for the Fair is usually not known until one gets there (unless one is either working the fair--and I'm not--or is one of the club leaders...) So, can't tell you as to what will happen either day... Wish I knew, too, in case I can only get there for one of the days... I've always thought it would be great if they would publish a schedule ahead of time, but they never do...so, it's always kind of a hit and miss thing... So can't really help you out there, Jerry! Sorry! But, I'm sure that they will try to balance it out so that there will be good things both days, and I imagine that each day will probably be packed full of events.... Anyway....

Do hope to get to meet you this year!!!!!!!

Peace and love!
--B.C. </font>

My wife will have to work on Saturday, but we'll both be there on Sunday for sure.

Hey Donna and Becca: Do ya want us 'Linkers to wear "Hello, my name is..." name tags on our shirts like we did last year so we can find each other? I'm pretty sure I'd recognize you again, Becca. But since I've never met you, Donna, I thought this might be a good (and fun) idea! Whaddya think??

BTW, April and I are sorry to hear you won't be coming to the Fair this year, Lorraine. We were really looking forward to getting together with you and yer hubby again (you too, Jerry, our "Fearless Leader").

Yea...we could do that again Dave...why not??? It'd make it easier to find each other....and, might be fun....(we can make all those other who aren't wearing name tags wonder about us, and our sanity--that will be fun!!!) So, should we meet in the pub again, or ??? And what time do you want to try to find each other... what's good for everyone??? (And, BTW...think I'd be able to recognize you again, too, Dave! !)
