Strike Up the Season ...

Greetings COAA Members and Guests,

With the month of May we enter into another rally season and this year's roster is very impressive.
The scheduled rallies are as follows:

Lake Winnepesaukah Rally, Roseville, GA, May 24-26, 2014

Knoebels Rally, Elysburg, PA, June 14-15, 2014

Olcutt Rally, Olcutt, NY, July 26-27, 2014

PTC #33 100th Anniversary Rally, St. Paul, MN, Aug. 8-10, 2014

Farmers Museum Rally, Cooperstown, NY, Aug. 23-24, 2014

Illinois Railway Museum Rally, Union, IL, Aug. 30-Sept. 1, 2014

Weston Small Organ Street Muster II, Weston, MO, Sept. 27-28, 2014

While the Carousel Organ Journal is at the heart of COAA and gives legitimacy to our non-profit designation, the organ rallies offers members the chance to socialize and attend a workshop dedicated to the hobby. The rallies also offers educational opportunities to the public at large to learn about mechanical organs and their important role in America's musical history. 

There will be a COAA Board meeting at the Knoebel's Rally on Sunday morning, June 15. If you have a concern or discussion item please let me know before June 1. If you've never experienced Knoebel's you're in for a special treat; and that's true for those who are returning as well. This family-owned park is a magical combination of yesteryear and modern rides and amusements. With free parking and admission, and rides reminiscent of years gone by, this is truly a special place.

Hope to see you along the rally trail this year.

Stay in tune,
