Last call.(edit , event is now confirmed )

By request of the alumni, this is the 3rd and final plan for the NEW North Ohio HarmoniCollege Oct 2nd & 3rd 2020 program

Danny G and Harmonica Bruce have generously offered their facility to be the Noth Ohio Extension of HarmoniCollege for this year. The location is 21746 N Benton West Rd North Benton, OH 44449, located between Pittsburgh, PA, Akron, and Cleveland, OH. This is the same location where the Ohio State Harmonica Championship took place this year.

Our instructor will be Charlie Barath from the Pittsburgh, PA area. Classes will be Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm Friday and Saturday night jam.sessions will be around an open campfire from 7 to 11. .Saturday classes will be held outdoors, weather permitting, or in Harmonica Bruce’s new 4000 square foot barn where we can spread out. This will give us good ventilation. Masks will be encouraged but not mandatory,

The cost is $100 for Friday and Saturday for classes and jam sessions or $70 for Saturday classes only. Food will be provided. Some alumni have prepaid, Those payments will be applied to the cost. Any over payments can remain as credit for spring 2021 or be refunded.

Since the Ohio Harmonica Championship at Danny G’s Party in North Benton, OH in July was so successful, we will use the safety techniques used then. Seventy people attended the event and a 2 week follow-up of attendees showed no covid 19 infections in the group.

Everyone’s name and temperature will be recorded on Friday night and Saturday morning. We will do a health follow up 10 days after the event.
For the $100 fee, CAMPING is allowed. Dogs are allowed. There is electric hookup available for campers. Danny and Bruce said they have a few bedrooms and couches available if you want one. There is a $60 and a $70 per night motel 15 minutes away.

THIS IS ALL CONTINGENT ON RESPONSE. This is a last minute plan, but a workable plan. If we get enough people interested, it will happen.
You may ask questions and make suggestions. It is possible for details to change per feedback from the alumni.

Harmonically yours

I am CONFIRMING it’s a go for the NEW North Ohio HarmoniCollege Oct 2nd & 3rd 2020 program

So far, it’s a SMALL group, maybe 8 total, but I gave it the go ahead when I learned Charlie Barath had arranged for Chris Sutton to back him up on guitar. My friend the late Ray Ratcliffe once said, “Charlie and Chris are the best I’ve heard since Cephus and Wiggins” I also recruited my duo partner Karen Combs to come and add her guitar and singing to our jam sessions.

The details previously posted remain the same.
