I, too, have a stack of mail to go through and haven't had a chance to even try to sum up our visit to the Sanfilippo Victorian Palace. Suffice it to say, those of you who didn't make it should be kicking themselves for passing up the opportunity of a lifetime. It was the most exquisite combination of visual and aural beauty you will ever encounter. I'll try to collect my thoughts later tonight, but it was indeed a most magical, miraculous conference. Kudos to Kurt Nauck, Ed Ward of the Irish Fest archive, and all the local coordinators for making this the most magnificent ARSC conference I've been to.
And thanks, Steve, for the kudos. I missed out on being present for my first award in 1995, which was held in the rotunda of the Library of Congress. Next to that, being in the Carousel building for this one was really mind-boggling.

Subject: Re: [78-l] ARSC Conference report - a few thoughts.
I have so much mail to go through that - as I said in another post - I'll need to catch up. Haven't read Cary's report yet but wanted to congrat him on his FOURTH ARSC award.
There was mention of the free copies of the new Archeophone Dirty cylinders CDs that we got but we also got a free Irish Fest CD and the San Filippo Organ CD.
Now the BIG news - if Cary didn't mention it - was that ARSC is making the WHOLE conference - well all except a few of the papers which we couldn't get permission for like the one on the Steiner collection - will be available on CD as MP3s and some with powerpoint presentatons at a really good price.
Those who paid at the conference were offered a $25. ppd price but anyone else will be able to buy at $35.00 for the set. There will be hours and hours of material. Patrick Feaster generously volunteered to act as producer.
Watch for info on the WEb Site and in next ARSC Newsletter.
