There's a large group of ukulelists that play Wednesdays on the beach at San Onofre, of all skill levels. PM me or call me at (760)458-6656 and I'll get you in contact with them. Many of those guys and gals carpool down to the Thursday kanikapila, Ukulele Society Of America, on Thursdays. Ric Douglas

I just got off the phone with Craig and here are the details. When you go to the beach at San Onofre, the beach sections are commonly addressed by the numbered restrooms. Bill Tapia is commonly there on Wednesdays, too.

Wednesday 3 - ? on the beach between restrooms 4 & 5

Saturday 3 - ? on the beach between restrooms 4 & 5

I know ill be hungery tomorrowI've always thought it would be cool to meet up at the beach in Huntington. If anyone wants to, I know a perfect place at Huntington City Beach to meet. A nice grassy area by the sand. It cost $10.00 to get into the beach, unless you all want to meet were I live, I have a 15 person van and am willing to transport. So if anyone wants to Jam tomorrow, let's talk tonight.

I am so sorry....I didn't go today because I had to attend a thing for my kids, but during the month of August we meet at Pierside Plaza next to the HB pier and play outside. I'm surprised Shirley didn't have that posted on the door of the shop.

Hey, anyone planning on going to Island Bazaar for Thursday night Ukulele Jam on Thursday 9/4, heads up we're meeting at the pier again this week. We play at the base of the pier for the public from 6-8 pm. The Huntington Beach pier is located at Pacific Coast Hwy and Main Street. Look for our group on the north side of the pier. You can't miss us, there is usually 40-50 of us. Bring your uke and a jacket, we're all happy to share our music books with newbies.

Tonight at Ukulele Jam at Island Bazaar in Huntington Beach a new guy got up on stage and performed an original. It was a great song. Turns out the new guy was our own VengfulTikiGod. You did a wonderful job, Don. And I'm going to hold you to your promise to bring more friends next week. Hope you had fun.
