(back) Subject: Thoughts regarding insurance benefits for Organbuilders (X-posted) From: Richard Schneider <arpncorn@davesworld.net> Date: Tue, 03 Mar 1998 09:19:20 -0800   Michael Williamson, of Williamson/Warne Associates recently wrote inquiring about what various builders pay their personnel, and if there were any benefits involved.   As a company, we have been struggling for some time now with just how to go about being able to offer our employees a comprehensive health care benefits package that doesn't break the bank in the process. By law, we are to provide Workman's Compensation, but beyond that, we've not been able to do much else. Fortunately, up to this point, our employees have been able to "sneak in" under a spouse's or parent's health care plan that is part of a larger "group" plan. In my case, my wife works for the local school district and they have a very comprehensive Blue Cross plan. My goal is to get her out of that job, but retain the same level of benefits. However, if we were to try to provide the same coverage for our employess as my wife's school district provides, the premiums would exceed our company's gross income for the momth, from what we've found thus far!   I see this as being a real, Industry-Wide problem, and would like to find out from the other builders on-line how or if they have successfully handled this problem, and if there might be an interest in the possibilty of collecting a consortium of builders and approaching a major insurance provider with the idea of beginning an "Organbuilders Group" (with obviously more "leverage" and purchasing power than any of us as individual builders could ever wield for ourselves!) for the purposes of providing health care coverage to ourselves and our employees at affordable premiums.   Perhaps this is something that the American Institute of Organbuilders or APOBA needs to get involved with, especially if there is a great deal of interest.   Looking forward to receipt of any information that may be forthcoming.   Everyone have a good week!   Faithfully,   -- / ^ ^ \ { (O) (O) } --------oOOOo--------U-------oOOOo------------   "Arp in the Corn Patch" Richard Schneider, President SCHNEIDER PIPE ORGANS, Inc.

(back) Subject: Who Plays What @ Chicago Ball Parks; D. Wickerham From: TonyIn219 <TonyIn219@aol.com> Date: Tue, 3 Mar 1998 13:29:01 EST   Just a note to let everyone know I had a WONDERFUL evening at Beggars Pizza in Lansing, Illinois last night with a good friend I met about a year ago on this very list.   The organ, a 3/12 (or so) Barton got a rousing workout from Menominee Falls' own Dave Wickerham. The veal parmigiana over a bed of angel hair pasta was "swell" and mixed readily with appetizing strains of "Student Prince" and novelty "side dishes" including "Kitten on the Keys."   Glen Miller, Tommy Dorsey, (modern) Disney, movie themes and Irish standards rounded out the evening's musical repast, including Dave's unique variations on Amazing Grace.   During a particularly rousing rendition of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, (an unexpected song on the menu) I suddenly found myself flashing back to childhood and mouthing the words:   "Near Chitty Far Chitty in a motor car Chitty on Chitty Chitty we depend, Bang Bang Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, our bright four-fendered friend.   So whatever happened to Sally Ann Howes, anyway?   Regarding Chicago organs:   I don't know who plays the 28,000-seat United Center, but that's a 3-manual Allen custom theatre organ (all electronic). It's black with gold trim and bright red innards along the manuals and stop rails.   Gary Pressey plays Wrigley Field. He's used a Technics 61-key portable keyboard for the last several years, but I heard that Lowrey donated one of their disco-lighted organs (probably as a publicity stunt). So he has a Technics and a Lowrey. (Did you know the newer Lowreys have a piston called "Light Show?" Its sole purpose is to set the scores of multi-colored LEDs a- flashing -- marquee-style -- ostensibly to either make playing more exciting or to simulate talent.)   Sox Park (the NEW Comiskey Park), features the gorgeous and fabulous Nancy Faust. On game days, Nancy mans the helm of a mid-1980s or so Technics G-3 console (25 pedals, 2 61-key manuals), augmented by a Technics KN 1000 keyboard. Behind the music rack, panoramic down-facing windows (which looks like an organ installation in the cockpit of the Hindenburg) give Nancy a choice view of game goings-on.   ALSO. . . There's a roller-rink party coming up in Chicago and I can't find the info on it. Can anyone help? It's supposedly the last hurrah before the wrecking ball destroys the home of a 3/17 Wurlitzer in Maywood. I heard it's at 10:00 a.m., admission is free, and that it should be fun. I think the rink is on North Avenue, but I'm not sure where.   PLEASE SOMEONE SEND ME INFO.   John Carrington Tonyin219@aol.com Chesterton, Indiana Lowrey Historian Technics and Lowrey Owner Author: "Why They're Loud: The Lowrey One-Finger-Chord Story."

He was the organist at the Chicago Stadium playing the 6/58 Barton, He is the official organist at the new center. Frank also plays an X-66 Hammond Thursday nights at the Aurora Rollerskating rink. The North Avenue Roller Rink is on North Avenue across from the Maywood Race Track. That organ is for sale for $20,000 per the owners if it has not already been sold.   Dick
