Pickin' Party Pixtures - January 27th, 2001

Charlie Berwinkle getting ready to play a couple with Richard Smith
George Castle drove 9 hours down from mid Michigan just to give these instructions to Richard....
Friend Furbey and Dave Sullivan checking in.
They'll let anybody in these thangs...
This is Arnold Alpert that I keep referring to.   I'd be lost without him.
FPA - Future Picker of America..  Right...   "Dad, can I have another can of pop????"
We ran out of chairs, so we had to use bleachers.  We really know how to treat our stars up here in Ohio.  ---  Someone in the crowd remarked that it took "balls" subjecting Richard to playing on a basketball court.....
Nobody was disappointed in his playing.
Sir Richard struttin' his stuff.  And, what great stuff it was.
What town was this Pickin' Party held in, anyway?
There was a lot more action that folks took pictures of.  Please send them to me and I will post them here.  Thanks.
