Greetings to all Southern California piano tech's and readers of the PTG Southern California Newsletter.

In March the OC Chapter was taught by our very own David Vanderlip and, of course, he brought his better half, Kathy Smith, to assist in showing us his method of cleaning grand pianos. We all have our routines, so it was enlightening to see how someone with a great amount of experience handles this task. David and Kathy showed us an array of blowing devices they've accumulated over the years. They also demonstrated cleaning and dusting the sound board with several different devices including a tiger tail. We delved further into detailing the action cavity and the action itself. Many tips and ideas were shared by the small group.

In April we will be at Keyboard Concepts’ new location in Fountain Valley. David Stoneman has invited Greg Frank and Ryan Moss from Yamaha to demonstrate service on Yamaha's new Avant Grand hybrid piano. Come on by and check out the new Keyboard Concepts store. It’s at a very convenient location in the shadow of the 405!!!!

It's that time of year again . . . We will be having nominations for chapter offices in April. Come to the meeting, get involved, give your input for the future of our Chapter.

In closing, on behalf of the OC chapter members I would like to thank David and Kathy for the excellent program and, of course, Fields Piano for hosting and buying us some sandwiches for snacks.
