From the Windbourne History Time Line

OCTOBER 8: Rilla and Karen drive to LA to pick up the run of Echoes on the Wind. Then they head over to the Burbank Airport Hilton to attend Con-Chord 9.

OCTOBER 9: Barney, Kate, Kathy, and Harold load up Harold's Suburban for our trip to the convention. We arrive at the hotel, unload, then watch the last part of the tasteless revue.

Our concert slot is at 3:30. We perform: Crimson & Crystal, Silly Slang Song, Miracle Worker, John of Dreams, Baby Vampire Boogie, and Ladyhawke. We used the mini sound system. After the concert, a filker named Peter Lindley, came up and said that he enjoyed the concert, but we needed a bass player. We decided to have him try out that evening.

During the next few acts Karen and Kathy meet another filker named Dave Fawcett.

That evening we had a jam session with Dave Clement, Peter Lindley, and Dave Fawcett. The jam session was also a small tryout for Dave F. and Peter L. Then we opened it up for regular Filking.

Harold and Kathy headed home with a lot of the equipment and stuff. Barney, Kate, Rilla and Karen stayed the night in the Con Hotel.

OCTOBER 10: We got up early to see Dave Clement do Stan Rogers music. He used Karen's 12 string guitar in that concert.

We wandered around visited and such till the afternoon, then we packed Karen's Trooper and headed home.
