Group Night 3rd Feb.'20 – Review

Hi all Wuggers. Well what a night it was last night. With 39 nine in attentance and that included: a new-comer from several months back (returning), one from last week and two new last night; phew, might have to get a bigger room! No, I think a re-arrangement of the tables is required at this stage. Marianne D. did a great job with the beginners class – on again next Group night commencing 6.30pm. Also Marie & Corry handled the MC. spot superbly. Joe & Graeme B. next week and Ray the following week, have volunteered for the MC. spot. Please OTHER members give this Group activity a thought and have a go. All assistance will be given.

Open Mic. was well supported and some videos thereof are on the blog. Apologies for some presentations that I missed.

That is all for now. Happy Ukuleleing. Graeme.

Hi all Wuggers. After two very successful weekend Play-outs; at Moyneyana Festival and Australia Day Celebrations, the videos & pics therefrom are now on the blog. Many thanks for taking same must go to Anne E. and Chris D. for providing them.

Review of Last Play-outs-Song Update.

Hi all Wuggers, give yourselves a pat on the back as the play-outs at Moyneyana Festival and yesterday at the Australia Day celebrations were; according to all reports, outstanding. The Warrnambool C.C. facebook site has a pic from yesterdays Au Day performance by our group and it looks “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” . That and videos from Moyneyana & Au Day will be added to our blog later this week.

The Song “My Southern Town” has been updated and is on the blog. We will have the author of the song; Andy, with us tonight so we will give a rendition thereof with him. Hope to see you all there this evening. It is Spiral Book tonight so I will provide copies of My Southern Town for reference tonight.

Cheers for now, Happy Ukuleleing. Graeme.

From Last Group Night – 20th Jan'20

Hi all Wuggers. A great day was had by group at the Moyneyana Festival last Sunday. Good turn-out of members and audience as well. Looks like we may have our own Group dancer for our performances, thanks to Peter’s partner. A number of videos we taken and some photographs as well of the play-out and these I will add to the blog along with the Australia Day play-out photos/videos next Sunday.

Great to see Andy from Cumbria, UK. with us on Monday night. Andy wrote “My Southern Town” and will be at the Australia Day play-out to swell our numbers. The rehearsal for Aus. Day last meeting went really well. I think the smaller room may have had some acoustic influence on our renditions. Well done you all sounded fantastic.

Finally the times for our play-out at Aus. Day are: arrive 12md. for 12-30pm to 1.10pm performance. From Barry – you can bring lunch and your seating also. Parking will be pretty hectic, going on previous years. That is all for now. Hope to see a good turn out on Sunday.

Cheers for now. Happy Ukuleleing, Graeme.
