Ho, ho ho strummers

The festive season is now upon us.  Some of the events which people have enjoyed were the Newcastle Ukulele Festival and the Riverwood Downs Ukulele Muster run by the Blue Mountains Group.  These events were successful even if rain dampened the day in Newcastle but certainly it did not dampen the enthusiasm for players.  Riverwood downs was a great way to relax and end the year for not only the Blue Mountains group but also everyone else who just loved a strum in groups together around the camp sites and in the big barn even though it was rather hot.

Just a reminder that on Saturday 3rd December there is a ukulele muster in Wingham at the Wingham Brush.  Remember to bring your own food, there are BBQs for cooking.  You will need your chairs as well.  The event kicks of at 10.30 am.  There will be a walk up and group singing/playing.  Non ukulele players are most welcome.  There is shade but you still need of course to slip, slop, slap.  Looking forward to seeing you all there.

We would like to say a Merry Christmas and a happy festive season to everyone and their families, especially our sister group in Canada, ‘The Cutie Circle’ and to all our friends.  While Canada you will be enjoying lovely snow, we will be sweltering in the great ‘Aussie’ heat.

Thank you everyone for your support this year and keep checking the website news and workshops in 2017.  Val and Chris will be travelling to Europe and the UK to visit ukulele festivals and clubs.  We will post lots of photos.
