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.

odd, strange, or queer:
a rum fellow. a rum lot
“excellent, fine, good, valuab
le,” 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 silv
er”[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!
Don’t let the rain the cold and the wet weather get you down or keep you in!! Come out to the San Pablo Bay Sportsmen’s Club as our bi-monthly Saturday Suppers continue.This Saturday the 12th of February we’ll be serving up Lasagna (vegetarian & meat), Salad and Pizza. A warm fire in the fireplace, probably some ukulele players jamming and just an all around good time inside in front of a cozy fire!!

On Sunday Amy will be leading our bi-monthly Ukulele learning party for beginners and advanced players alike. See the previous post for all the details and see you at the club this weekend!!
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”.
