Wow! What a great meeting. We had such a great turnout with lots of fresh faces and many dedicated regulars. Thank you all for showing me that what we are doing is so worthwhile. Oh, and thanks for bring snacks! Delicious!
Come November we will have been meeting twice a month for six years. There will be a spectacular celebration where members and guests can attend. There will be a stage for open mic performances, delicious food and drinks, and games like ping pong, billiards, darts, and a special addition ukulele sound hole bean bag toss game, my idea just now! Lol! The youngins’ call it “Cornhole”. There will be special guest performances and maybe even a workshop or two to learn something special. Oh, did I forget! There will be door prizes. Ukulele related of course! I can’t wait!
Back to the present. We will continue to keep our beginners in mind and plan our meeting to keep all skill levels involved. What’s that saying? KISS – Keep it simple stupid. That’s what I’ll do!
We’re playing a couple of Hawaiian songs just because, and a suggested favorite Beatles tune!
I’m posting early again because I’ve got the ukulele spirit!! Plus it’ll give y’all plenty of time to practice.
