The Denver Post had a neat story today about a mass ukulele lesson in a Denver park yesterday. Here's the link: http://www.denverpost.com/search/ci_16176122
There's also a video here: http://photos.denverpost.com/mediacenter/2010/09/ukulele-lesson-on-ruby-hill-in-denver/
The group that sponsored the event, The Swallow Hill Music Center, also sponsors the Denver Ukulele Festival in February.

Very cool! Only downside I see is that the more uke players we get, the steeper the competition for a vintage Martin! I guess I better buy one... UAS notched up!

That's very true. I've actually seen the prices go up noticeably in the just under 2 years that I have been playing. One of the things that got me to start playing in the first place was the fact that Martin made ukes. I was never a good enough guitar player to justify owning Martin guitar, much less a VINTAGE Martin guitar (I like old stuff.. what can I say?). But there was hope for me on ukulele!
Well, I have successfully hijacked my own thread after only one response!

The video & photos from Denver are great - lots of smiles & its great to see a whole lot of ukes in the same place. Very cool indeed!

this is really cool. I used to live in the Springs and am sad that I missed this Ukulele awesomeness
