Sick Drummer Magazine

Sick Drummer Camp - George Kollias, Derek Roddy, Sean Reinert, Tim Yeung, Danny Walker, Gus Rios & Dirk Verbeuren!
Tuesday, 31 May 2011 17:50


Sick Drummer Magazine is putting together an exclusive 5 day Sick Drummer Camp, with George Kollias, Derek Roddy, Sean Reinert, Danny Walker. Additionally, Tim Yeung of Morbid Angel, Gus Rios of Malevolent Creation and Dirk Verbeuren of Soilwork will be there as guest instructors!
The event is open to those 18 and older and will be held the first week of October in Northern California, about an hour north of San Fransisco on a 5 acre private retreat. This retreat is amazing and offers seclusion, various class/performance spaces, lounge areas, hot tubs, an inground pool, billiards, hiking trails and much more. We will be close to nearby stores, shopping, restaurants, wineries, a casino and many other attractions.
This is not only a chance for you to learn from some of the best drummers available, but a chance to hang out with them for a week! You will be eating with the instructors, racing go-karts and doing other fun activities with them, and pretty much getting to know them over the course of the event. You will not only walk away with what you have learned, but with some new friends in the drumming world and what is bound to be one of the best experiences of your life. Not to mention, all of this will be filmed for a DVD!

Дядя "Бизнес мания игра"Джордж очередной раз воспарил мыслью, и вышла куча неприятностей.

Он послал Блейза "План эвакуации в военное время"с большим войском.

Надо бы и эти вещи уложить, ему-то ""они не понадобятся.

Но ты же не думаешь просто отвезти "Скачать запись приватов"его обратно в столицу, возразил гном.

Вокруг фигуры прекрасной женщины вспыхнуло ""красноватое зарево и тотчас померкло.

Заклинание вышло довольно длинным.

What is the point of having this AWESOME festival WAY OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE?!?!?!!

Why not AT LEAST near a major airport so not everyone has to rent a car to drive to this random location???

The point is to be different from all the other camps. This is not only a drum camp, but a chance to hang out with these guys for a week in a very cool, and secluded, part of Northern California. There are 2 major airports within 2 hours and there are shuttles running, so no need to rent a car.

We are new at this and doing what we can within the range of our limited budget. The good news is, we made it happen :)
