Quote:will Dylan still be able to sing
Telescopes are instruments of hope and faith. Hope that a better, clearer and brighter universe can be observed. Faith that we can bring these discoveries back to our small planet and create positive changes for all of it's inhabitants.
Quote:I feel the same way Peter. Dylan was and is a legend who has had tremendous influence on my generation (or at least the subculture there of, of which I have always been happily a part). Loved the Rolling Thunder Review, also Dylan touring with the Band; and where would the Byrds have been without Dylan. All I can say is I brought my girl up right. The last Dylan concert we went to was outdoors in a stadium and we were way off near center field. This time we will be only a few feet away!

Quote:Good question on organizer. I assumed Preston but haven't heard anything from him recently, even after emailing him specifically about NEAF. I'll check with NEAF to see if we're even registered! I know the ATS is registered.NEAF is a fairly small show. It doesn't even fill the gym (double sized or more) they use. You can get through the entire show in a couple hours if you dilly-dally and chat like I do.Food was metz-a-metz last year. Overpriced sandwiches, burgers and dogs. That said, I don't want to deal with making sandwiches in a hotel, nor in leaving for lunch. So I just grumble.Peter B.
