Great News,
There will be a Buckeye Harmonica Festival in Worthington, Ohio next March
'Maybe' sparking my interest--but depends on the location. Where's Worthington? (Columbus wasn't a bad plane trip for the years it was held there,
but other parts of Ohio are more difficult for me to get to).

Regardless, I know this has always been a pet project of yours and I hope it's a roaring success, Danny. :)

An upscale area just North of Columbus, it's where Dave Thomas, the founder of Wendy's used to live

 Worthington is to Columbus the same way Romulus is to Detroit. People would say they were going to the Columbus Buckeye or spah when they were actually going to Worthington. They would say Detroit when actually they were going to Romulus. They would say Dallas when actually going to Plano.
Turtle, tortoise, terrapin?......same thing

So it's served by Columbus Airport? :)  Not that I'm promising anything...I still have to deal with someone extremely reluctant to fly anywhere in what for us
is usually still very cold weather.

The difference in weather in mid March between your Long Island and Worthington, is roughly analogous to the difference between Montana and Alaska.
And yes, the Columbus airport serves Worthington. It's close.

Worthington is on the north end of Columbus.  There is no separation between the 2 cities, you drive from one into the other without notice of any difference.

When I lived in Romulus I never noticed the difference between it and Detroit.
But then I was 2 and we lived by the airport ...

It's the very idea of traveling ANYwhere (even to warmer climes) by plane --when one has had to sit on the tarmac at LaGuardia watching the wings being 'de-iced'
for the 3rd or 4th time, which leaves us decidedly unimpressed flying from NY in what is still very cold weather here. Visions of a 'water landing' in the Hudson seem
to constantly play in my head lately (should never have watched that movie). ;) IF it's an early Spring, things might change but I can't guarantee it. By train or car,
I have no issues - I remember one year we drove to Buckeye and as we left for home dressed in our light-weight Easter gear with the other driver wearing shorts and
sandals, no less--the snow was coming down thick, wet and heavy as we left Ohio. What a weird drive back that was!  :o

lol --might be a selling point for me, but doesn't work for the spouse. From Spah he goes off to Arizona for a few days, returning for the banquet.
From Ohio --for 3-4 days? Wouldn't be worth his while so would feel 'stuck' and isn't a harmonica fan to begin with (likes the people, not the non-stop
playing).  And I need help in traveling nowadays. A quandary.

Doesn't much matter, Carl. March/April weather both in New York and Ohio are always very iffy. It can be a beautiful early Spring, or a huge blizzard. No way to know ahead of time.
I won't fly in bad weather anymore (hate flying anyway)....and driving there isn't a choice nowadays.

There has been date changes .... Virginia will be in March and Buckeye will be later in April, Harmonicollege will be when Jim figures out what dates are available to him. I'll let you know the dates as soon as I'm sure the juggling is over.

Keep your ear to the tracks for when the message comes down.
Are you up that direction, BigDaddyT ?
Seems to be a lot more harmonica action that direction from
where I am. Maybe I should get my tent and take up residence
in the Promised Land. It worked for Abraham & Sarah.  ::) ;)
