Organ Rally in Findlay, Ohio, 12-14 September 2008
By Bonnie Mariani
I attended the COAA Convention in Findlay, Ohio, on September 12-14,
and I had a wonderful time with over 30 band organs of all types.
This event takes place every couple of years, with David Wasson's
concert organ "Trudy" and John Prtljaga's Dutch street organ, among
The weather was rainy on Friday and Saturday, but did clear up in the
afternoon on Saturday and Sunday was beautiful, with many residents
attending the convention. There were many fair organs, calliopes and
a replica of a Ruth 63 keyless organ. Everyone was very informative
and I would recommend this event to everyone.
