1 Proteus 2 months ago While there had previously been one or two smaller meets of GDP members, the gathering at Hachland Hills Vineyard in June 2008 was the first to bear the "Roundup" name, the first with official support from Gretsch, and marked the beginning of many Roundup traditions from the pick-shake prize boogie to the brandings.That event was coordinated by Steve "Nobody" McCloud and Doug Fieldhouse, with a little help from me. Without their efforts, we never would have found Hachland Hills - the very model of the ideal venue for such an event.From 2008 through 2014, we rounded up at Hachland Hills. Circumstances conspired to put us on the road in 2015 (Crossroads Roundup, Clarksdale MS) and 2016 (Hoosier Daddy Heartland Roundup, West Baden IN). But in 2017, we're back in Joelton, TN, just outside Nashville, at Hachland Hills.It's like coming home. Note: this thread is intended as coverage of the event as it happens, where all who participate are invited to post their own words and pictures (still and moving). I apologize that I didn't get it fired up yesterday before the event began - but I was kinda busy!For 13 pages of a pre-Roundup planning thread, go here.Page 14 of that thread has some coverage as well, already in process.
