Dee in the van

Dee just loves to drive! 

Van in front of Wichita hotel

It was a short trip to Wichita (if you sleep most of the way). 

Look at inside of packed van

Perhaps a 15 passenger van is necessary if one doesn't travel light

Lobby of Hotel at Old Town

Hotel at Old Town is a creative and beautiful reuse of the 1906 Keen Kutter warehouse.

Steve in hotel room

Steve adapts quickly to a luxurious living. 

Outside the museum of world treasures

Let's see.  Go the museum?  Maybe we better eat first!

Old Train at the Wichita Museum

There were a number of historic attractions and museums in Wichita's Historic Old Town.

Doc joking with audience

Don't be fooled into thinking the program will be dignified just because the 
performance area has wonderful temperature and humidity control.

Conference guests looking at

The conference guests included a number of people who also perform on early instruments.

Organetto on display

Of course the organetto was a popular instrument at an AGO event.

Steve packing up

Steve's look says it all. 
We'll get home sooner if you put down that camera and help load!
