THE CONVENTION IS FREE – SO DON’T MISS IT
Sept 18th will be the date of The Circle’s 5th on-line Convention. We’ve got to keep some things a bit secret, but we will feature more of discussions for which you gave us such very positive feedback. Look out for a slightly unusual DE-500 that might tell us a little of the history of the DE-500. There will also be a fascinating look at Larry Knechtel’s career & lots of new music & videos. There will a free raffle; the first prize is actually two prizes - an autographed copy of the ROAD TRIP CD plus a poster from Duane’s 2011 tour (this was a very limited edition of just 200, and is 60cm by 45cm). The second & third prize winners will each receive one of these posters. There will also be consolation prizes for some “lucky losers”.
