News and current events


Monday the 5th of September we had a low key BBQ & Potluck Dinner.  Dave Hjelt and Jack Berglund did a great job at the grill with the hamburgers and chicken.  There were about 20-25 people in attendance and it was an all around fun time.  There was quite a sampling of food donated for the potluck and great conversations.  We haven’t had a  lot of events this summer but it is nice to see the community spirit these sorts of get togethers generate.

There will be a membership meeting on Friday the 16th of September at 7pm.  For those interested in joining this would be a great time to submit your application.  The application can be printed right off of our website.  You do need to have two club members in good standing sign your application.

Our next event will probably be the Halloween Party in October.  Halloween falls on a  Monday this year so we could use some input on a selecting a preferred date!  Also we could always use some help with decorating and making things come together for another great Halloween Party!

Richmond Ukulele Meetup at the Sportsmen’s Club


 on Sunday, April 10th at 11 am and again on the 24th
“Richmond Ukulele Meet-up.”
(The RUM meetup at the Sportsmens Club)
(suggested donation $5)

Now with our website for the Ukulele meetups here

 Sunday, April 10th at 11 am and again on the 24th, same time.  Bring your ukes, a copy of “The Daily Ukulele” if you have it, any kind of desk stand (like a cookbook holder or a desktop music stand), and your sense of humor.  We’ll be off and running at 11 am.  Who knows?  If the weather is fine, we can go out on the porch and play for the seagulls!


At our last meeting, we decided on a name for our group – R.U.M. , which stands for “Richmond Ukulele Meet-up.” The possibilities for playing around with this are endless….

Invite your friends to be a Rummer, a Rummie or a Rum-ite… or part of the Rum Lot.

Definition of rum:


an alcoholic liquor or spirit distilled from molasses or some otherfermented sugar-cane product.


alcoholic drink in general; intoxicating liquor:

He warned against the demon rum.
adjective, Chiefly British.


odd, strange, or queer:

a rum fellow. a rum lot


problematic; difficult.
Interesting note;


“excellent, fine, good, valuable,” 1560s, from rome “fine” (1560s), said tobe from Romany rom “male, husband”  (see Romany ). E.g. rum kicks”Breeches of gold or silver brocade, or richly laced with gold or silver”[Grose, “Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue,” 1788].
A very common 16c. cant word, by 1774 it also had come to mean “odd,strange, bad, spurious,” perhaps because it had been so often used approvingly by rogues in reference to one another. This was the main sense after 1800.
Pass the word!

Spring is here let’s see you at the club for dinner this Saturday 9th of April


Beer & Burgers –
salad maybe some potluck
and just a fun way to spend some time together
and enjoy great sunsets and company.  

With daylight saving here we will start later so dinner won’t be until about 6pm.  Club will open around 4 or 5pm and if there is interest we have a lasagna we can cook up and some pizzas we can put in the oven.  Do try and make it out even if burgers aren’t your thing.  Help us find a menu you like and is affordable… we need you to keep the club’s momentum up!!  We are considering going to a once a month Saturday Supper – though if preferable we could always make it a Friday or Sunday event.  Feel free to leave a comment as to what you would prefer!


See you this Saturday at the Club – –
doors definitely open by 5pm!
Any member can come help out
just by opening the club up
and serving some drinks early on!!

Uke Learning party good times


Is your ukulele sitting around feeling forlorn and forgotten? Unloved and unused? Feared and jinxed? Would you like it to meet other ukuleles? Then come to the Pt. San Pablo Yacht Harbor this Sunday at 11 am to join other ukulele players and wanna-bes for fun and frolicsome music!*

We are starting a ukulele club that meets twice a month. (You do not need to be a member of the Sportsmen’s Club to participate) The first meet-up (the 2nd Sunday of each month) is primarily a practice/jam session. The second meet-up (usually on the 4th Sunday of the month BUT NOT THIS ONE>>> see below) is a learning circle. Facilitated by Amy Ukena who is learning ukule  just like you!
We will meet the 2nd and 4th Sunday of every month, BUT THIS MONTH, due to Easter, we will be meeting on the 2nd and 3RD Sunday of March, so mark your calendars for March 13th and 20th at 11 am – 1 pm or so. $5 donation suggested (for covering printing and food costs).*

We’ve got real beginners and truly talented/gifted players. Come join us in a relaxed and entertaining environment, and be prepared to be amazed at what you can learn!
Come aboard, me hearties!
Amy (a.k.a., Skallywag Sally)
*Bring whatever ukulele books you may have, but if you want to purchase one, we HIGHLY recommend “The Daily Ukulele”.
