IMPORTANT! The Saturday bus is imperative! Parking ranges from difficult to impossible at all venues. Getting there is not easy, either! The bus leaves the Ramada at 10:30 for...
... Yelm and St. Columban Catholic Church to hear DON FEELY play Father Terrence's Robert Morton organ newly installed by Andy Crow, Les Lehne and others. Don is well-known in the Portland area, played a great open console at the Evans home at OBW in 1997, and we all look forward to hearing him at Yelm.

St. Columban Robert Morton
Enjoy a great lunch at the church social hall, then hop back on the bus for...
...the Becvar home and ERIC SHOEMAKER, a relatively new face to the Theatre Organ scene in the Northwest. Eric is a top-notch jazz pianist, and more recently has become a regular organist at Tacoma Pizza and Pipes. Eric will entertain you on the Becvar Wurlitzer, with its new three-manual console! And if you've never been to the Becvar home, you're in for a treat. This is one of the most unique "organ homes" you'll ever find. While there, check out Jack's collection of clocks and all his other memorabilia before boarding the bus for...
...Southcenter and a no-host dinner stopover on "restaurant row." Whatever you crave, you'll find the perfect place. Then...
...back on the bus and off to West Seattle and HOKUM HALL. This is a unique venue, with a unique reputation of producing some of the most diverse musical entertainment anywhere. It's beyond description. All the Hokum Hall Players are very excited about this event and are busy planning very special surprise entertainment just for PSTOS and CROC.

Hokum Hall
After which... the bus will take you bock to the hotel for a good night's sleep following a terrific day!
On Sunday morning, have a yawn, a stretch, a complimentary continental breakfast at the Ramada, then drive your car to...
...Gig Harbor and the Wilcox Wurlitzer for the OBW Grand Finale-Patti Simon and Dick Kroeckel in concert.
