      I was wondering the same thing! I always look forward to Pete's pre-Juno construction thread.

      yup I did.I'm sorry but I did not have time to do a blog this year.We had SOOOOOO many issues (rigging, power, set, lighting, video) in setting up we were in crisis mode from day 1. I guess in my design I exceeded the capabilities and resources we have. I'll take the blame.I was not a happy camper till today. On one hand, I guess it would have made a great blog....Ha !!!! But honestly.....too much stress to even turn my camera on. However today, the set looks great, the bands started rehearsing and all is well. Except for video/lighting that have been able to get their systems up till late yesterday....so they are flailing a bit...but doing a great job that will be perfect for show time.Hey Rosetta just rehearsed they were great.....love that band.cheerspetePS....met the Captain today....yes James Tiberius Kirk. Bill Shatner....very funny.

      I was wondering why so little Juno talk this year. That's what got me interested in the Juno's enough last year to buy tickets for this year. I'm heading up Saturday. I'm sure it will be a great show.

      We will forgive you this year, Pete. Sounds like you had your hands full. Hope all goes well through the weekend
