Jumpingflea!

Matt must be about the luckiest UU member, as Lanikai has agreed to sponsor the Cairns Ukulele Festival by way of flying him all the way to Australia! Lanikai has been going from strength to strength in Australia and Matt will conduct Lanikai product demonstrations at the festival to show you why, so come and check those ukes out.

Cairns is one of the most beautiful parts of Australia, where the "rainforest meets the reef". Matt will be performing in front of an international crowd at the Tanks Arts Centre, a concert venue set in the rainforest.

As if that's not enough, he will be sharing his skills in a workshop!

Matt and his affilliation with Lanikai came to our attention as a result of frequent visits to UU, so I think Matt and the festival owe you guys a big THANKS!

For more info on the festival, check out this thread (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?26611-Cairns-Ukulele-Festival-1st-Announcement-DANIEL-HO-Seaman-Dan-Jumpingflea!)

Count me as jealous! I was visited Cairns November 2008 and LOVED it! I could live there.

If you like Cordon Bleu, try the Red Rooster Cheesy Nuggets.

So the pics, one is the Cairns International Airport. It looks like a set from Lost. They were building a new one when I was there, but I liked this one.

Coca-Cola Liquor? Why haven't we thought of that?

Congrats! Make sure you take a ride up to Tableland and enjoy a big juicy steak - the best I ever had was served to me in a small bar/rest where the locals rode thier horses to and the sunset there was burned into my memory.
