This Past Weekend in OH, IL, MI & IN
Tue., Sep. 6. 2005 5:43am EDT

Although gas prices are hitting everybody hard, we had outstanding turnouts for all four of our Midwest concerts on Labor Day Weekend. Each event was very well organized, with plenty of friendly, hard-working helpers to make things run smoothly. We would like to express our sincere thanks to:

Burt Campbell and his staff, who coordinated Friday's concert in Cambridge OH, and to Kim and Tanya, who ran the CD table. Make sure you check out our additional story about hurricane-relief money raised at that show. The people of Cambridge were very generous. There's also a prayer request in this week's newsletter for a teenage girl we met that night.

Cindy Utley and her crew, who set up Saturday's show in Mattoon IL, and to Mandy and Jennifer, who supervised the CD table. Thanks also to Kwench, a great bunch of guys and really tight musicians, and the other bands that played before we got there. The event was held at an airport, and the stage was on the tarmac, right next to a landing strip. Not only did we have stage lights, we had runway lights!

Atticus Sumner and his assistants, who organized Sunday's event (Holy Palooza) in Tecumseh MI, and to Larry, Beth, and Chelsea, who took care of the CD table. Thanks also to Mark Merry, a programmer who designed the first ever ApologetiX Game Boy cartridge (no kidding -- check out the photos on the website) that we know of. Mark brought a Game Boy along with the cartridge so we could see it in action. Pretty wild stuff! Thanks also to Richard Estermyer of PhotoGraphics, who designed and printed up custom ApologetiX jukebox shirts for all of us.

Rich Phillips and T.J. Williams and their team of volunteers, who put together Monday's show in Bedford IN, and to Keith and Aaron from WJCF in Greenfield IN, who managed the CD table. Thanks also to Strangeland, really nice dudes with a slick, super-heavy sound, and the other groups who shared the stage before we arrived. Special thanks to Jammin' Jim Surman and Mike Stankovic, our pals from WFHB in Bloomington IN, who introduced so many in the area to our music and have been such an encouragement to us over the years. We're glad you both could make it!

Special Note: After attending the concerts on Friday and Sunday, Beth Davis has now been to 38 ApologetiX concerts in a record-breaking 13 states ... and she just got back from a mission trip to Kenya! Although she's still a teenager, Beth has also already done mission trips to England and Mexico. You go, girl ... literally!
