UWC 2012, Ukulele World Congress
UKULELE WORLD CONGRESS 2012 * 4th Annual! *
JUNE 1st-2nd 2012
NEEDMORE (Brown County!) INDIANA
About 10 miles from Nashville Indiana off HWY45 at @ 4600 Plum Creek Rd.
Free! Compliments of Mainland Ukes
Most people start arriving late Friday afternoon, although several people came Thursday last year.
You're welcome to come a day or two early, but you might end up helping with the mowing and set-up.
Some people didn't leave till Monday or later!
There will be a potluck again Friday evening at 7pm. Mainland will have free water and drinks available until they run out.
There is an open mic each evening as well as a lot of other jammings all day and playing around the bonfire all night.
Nothing official planned for Sunday, but it's YOUR party so you guys can do what you want! Last year, Sunday had some nice low-key jamming and folks hanging around trying to find any excuse to prolong the experience.
The site for the UWC is a couple of big, well maintained fields with no permanent structures except for the stage. Both the fields are at least partially bordered by woods and a creek. As Bassuke has said, camping under shade is a good idea. There are alot of good on-site camping areas that weren't really explored last year, in the back of "parking field" there are some sweet drive up and camp spots that have shade for alot of the day.
There is basically an unlimited amount of parking and camping space. Portable toilets will be on site.
Nashville is only about 10 minutes away from the UWC site and has a good variety of hotels and Bed and Breakfasts. Here's some options.
Primative camping is free at the UWC site! (No showers sorry)
The local YMCA in Nashville sells $5 day passes, but I think it's free the first Saturday of the month.
Nashville is not far and the Needmore store, good for some basics is only about a mile away.
Nashville has an IGA for food and other supplies.
There is also a CVS (cheap booze) and a liquor store in Nashville.
If you are flying ,Indianapolis International airport is about an hour or so away.

See you there! Mike
