Roy, our friends from Perdido Key told us that they will be coming with Reneda to the Gathering also. They are Raymond and Judy Lowe. Raymond is from Trinidad and is the Key's Master Chef. You'll really enjoy them. He will be going back to Trinidad soon but wanted to come to Austin to the Gathering before doing so. We will be getting rooms for them and Sam Anderson. Sam was in Perdido this last week also for the party. We have already made reservations for Chris Newbury. Barb & Felix
Philip White has asked me to relay a message from Marie Rhines. Unfortunately, she will not be able to attend this year's gathering. During that weekend, she is scheduled to play at a friend's wedding. If you wish to contact Marie, you may do so via her website: http://www.marierhines.com/ . I'm sure she would love to hear from you.
Marie is a class act, and I know we all wish her well.
