Pickin' Party Pictures - January 26th, 2002

Bob Saxton knows the fret board just about as good as anyone in the business.  What a great performer, too.
The audience was spell bound
by Bob's playing.
Bob was looking over at me in amazement wonderin', "How can he play all that without moving his fangers?"
Dave Duncan enjoying a couple with Bob.
Chret Vickers and Dave Duncan warming up and waiting their turn to go up with Bob.
Charlie Berwinkle is always a crowd favorite. 
Billy Tustin couldn't wait to get his hands
on that old Grestch.  The boy knows how to play, folks.
Al Meyers and Fred Kelly (Kelly Picks) enjoying Bob artistry.  (Both pretty good pickers in their own right.)
Fred Kelly and his lovely wife.
Benny Trimble (left - NJ) and Ed Potts (MI) have been friends since they were in Korea together - and, now are big friends of OFGC.  They had a blast.
Billy Tustin, Dave Duncan and Willis Crocket enjoying having their picture took...
Chaz Mechenbier shows Bob his stuff.  His stuff is pretty good.
Arnie Alpert, Dave Sullivan, and Bob Cox look on.
Jim Owens is a new member from Chillicothe, Ohio.  He and his family come up some Tuesday nights to enjoy the Club Jam at Scotty MacBeans coffee house.
We ain't all old folks.  This is our club cartoonist Dan Collins and his daughter and boyfriend.  (I wonder how much he had to pay them to come??)  (They were probably wondering what was keeping all these old farts alive...)
"No" Moore is growing up on me folks.  There he is trying to hide from everybody.  (Thumb pickin' ain't really all that cool...)
Then we moved the party upstairs for a club jam "pickin'-in-the-round."  Bruce Mock always plays some very nice tunes.
John "Bigfingers" Vorsky enjoying the pickin'.
Bob Saxton joined us for the jam, too.  Jim Lafferty looks like he's trying one of Bob's "tricks."
We introduced Bill Esch to finger style playing 4 years ago.  Since, he has learned just about every note of every tune on the Chet training video.
Troy Herdman is one of the most sought after bluegrass sidemen in Ohio - and, we can't get him to pluck us one note...  (Fortunately I get to pick a couple with him in his basement from time to time.)
Thanks to Ailene Duncan for taking these pictures....
