I am liking this design a lot. Is it available on a t-shirt?

Do ask him Paul. I sent him a message through Facebook, but no harm in asking him again.

Great event for sure, great pics! Joe, if you're reading- it would be such a great idea to re-edit some vintage Gretsch advertisements as posters (and also available in europe)...

Ryan runs a greaT party. Lots of great folks up here too. Took a cruise on the st Lawrence yesterday with a great dinner. Neat to see many islands with everything from cabins to castles. Kingston is filled with music and artists and great shopping too. ( bought a two hundred year old farming tool for cheap). Thanks to everyone who made this even awesome. Thanks to Joe and Gretsch too!

Looks like this year's Roundup was a huge and rousing success! It would appear your Roundups are getting a lot of traction as 'must attend' event. Wish I could get to these.

Lots to do and see for our southern members travelling to and from the event. A wonderful time had by all.

Amazing event, Ryan. Each year just keeps getting better. Looking forward to Number 6 next year.
Big thanks to Joe C. and all our friends from South of the border for making the trek north and enjoying the Canadian dollar.
Til next time!

Great event, Ryan, and good to see so many awsome, enthusiastic folks come out and enjoy themselves for the day.

Thanks for having us, and letting us cross your border.

What a wonderful day!! First time attending but definitely not the last! Met so many cool new friends and enjoyed some seriously talented players. Got to share our '56 Country Club with fellow Gretsch geeks and my wife won the gorgeous Black Falcon Acoustic!! What?! Incredible 21st wedding anniversary present! Thank you sooo much Joe, Ryan and Gretsch for a fantastic event! See you all next year...

With Joe and the super talented George Stryker and our old '56 Country Club. Good times...

There's something missing....Oh yeah...Me. Looks like y'all had a blast!

My first Gretsch Round Up was a blast ! Enjoyed every moment, and chatting with all the Gretsch-oholics I met. Thanks so much Ryan, Joe, and everybody involved. Looking forward to cooking up some more eye candy for next year too ! Still in shock that I came home with this fantastic Electromatic G5622 , what a beauty !

Wow what a weekend!! I want to thank everyone who attended this event. Thank you all for making it a success and a great event on so many levels. One thing I must say is that the talent that is coming to this event keeps getting better and better, and they all play a Gretsch! The music is diverse and wide, rock a billy, hard rock, rock n roll maybe even some pop music. The only thing we haven't had is country. We may have had someone play some but I don't remember. It really makes it an enjoyable day to hear all kinds of music. Also the spontaneity and the "let do this" jamming happened too, which also made for an fun and interesting moment of the event. A list of thank yous is in order, first I'd like to thank all that came to the event! Also to those who gave us swag to give away like TV Jones for the shirts, stickers and fridge magnets, very cool! Also d'addario Canada for there continuing support, a big thanks to them for the special printed Picks that the first 100 people received when they came to the event also the strings, the straps, the stool, the stickers and the key chain pick holders. Just amazing thanks to both TV Jones and D'addario Canada. Centre Stage Music in Kingston our local Gretsch dealer thanks for coming out and showing off all those great guitars!! Mark Rehkopf thanks for the great artwork for this years posters and the display that you had was amazing! Check this guy out people some really great stuff! Next I'd like to thank Crippled Lion for his thoughtfulness, that book that you got Michael and had everyone sign, is something really special to me and really means a lot to me thank you brother! My family and friends that all you may not know but are a huge help with this, Dan my brother for his drums and storage of my gear, Franco for being security and an all round help with the event. My parents that cook every year for everyone. These people really make it happen. Also another special thanks to Razor and his wife Rhona, Rhona is my bouncer/ticket taker/money collector/all round sweetheart thank you so much Rhona! Thanks crowbone/John for being the best prize table MC there is, your singing is improving since the balto-dc roundup, keep working on it. Last but not least Mr. Joe Carducci and Gretsch Guitars. Thanks for your support, enthusiasm, and energy to this brand of guitars that we love. Thank you all and I will see you all next year or perhaps sooner

Couldn't have done it without you, Ryan.
Your energy and initial vision got the Canadian Round Up off and running 5 years ago!
So, thank you!
