Pickin' Party Pictures - June 3rd, 2006

Richard Smith & Pat Bergeson
with Terry Efaw & Craig Goodwin

Charter members Bob Cox, Tom Armbruster & Dave Sullivan getting ready to enjoy the music.
Local pros Craig Goodwin and Chaz Mechenbier share a joke or two...
JD Norman and Dan Collins look over JD's Taylor.
Phil ? talks with two more charter members Jerry Hyland and Jim Lafferty..
Leading off the entertainment was the onetime duo of Craig Goodwin and '71 Chet Atkins National Contest winner, Terry Efaw..
It was great hearing these two guys get back together again.. 
JD likes getting his picture taken with the stars..  Pat Bergeson doesn't seem to mind...
The crowd was much smaller than expected, but still had a blast..  Hey, look at the wives... they do come to these Pickin' Parties... lol
About 45 - 50 in attendance..
Richard Smith tuning up while JD asks me if I think Richard will remember those licks he taught him last year...  (lol)
Then, Richard and Pat Bergeson took center stage and ripped a slew of tunes at us for over and hour and a half... 
Poor Richard had contacted stomach poisoning the previous night and was not feeling all that well.  However, it was NOT reflected in his playing... These guys were awesome.
The crowd just didn't want them to quit...  But, they had a gig that evening in Dayton they needed to get off to... 
Thanks to JD Norman and Arnie Alpert for the above pics...
