US Air Guitar Championships
The original reason for traveling to San Francisco was to go to the US Air Guitar Championships. What an experience! I am so happy that I was able to enjoy this event and appreciate this form of art. The participants entered onto the stage in Everlast boxing robes after introductions. Then each performed his/her song and was judged by 3 judges. After all 24 participants performed their individual events, the competition was narrowed down to the top 5 (or top 6 in this case due to a tie). Unfortunately, Rob was not among this upper echelon...but next year. There was a break during which two mascots competed: Air Bear versus Lou Seal. Very fun. The final performances were fabulous and "Free Bird" was very...free. Not to be missed. I will definitely be at the Philadelphia Regionals next year.
