However,there will be a legendary local metal guitarist going to be attending.

Greetings everyone,

A Special thanks to Salvatore and Gianna for offering their Studio for our use.

Just a quick note to thank all the attendees who made it out to the Meet-n-Greet in Sarasota this evening.  At final count, we had a total of 76 memebers and guests.
Several photographers took advantage of the location and shot both inside the Studio as well as outdoors.

Now the task at hand is to start planning for the Port Charlotte/Punta Gorda location to be held in January.

Again, thanks to all who made it and to those who couldn't, you missed out!
I'm sure we will have some photos online in the events section as a recap in the next day or two.
