Hartselle, Decatur, Huntsville, Cullam, Athens, & surrounding areas.
Anybody interested in maybe putting together a group, or maybe just a monthly jam session?

Well, I'm in Montgomery so I'm probably way outside of your jurisdiction, but I'm interested in get-togethers/jams. One of these days I need to get over to the SE Ukers jam.

soulpowerbreaks and Gmoney,

I have a picking buddy who has a tenor, I have a super soprano.
How about a Sat or Sun afternoon meet-up soon, when the weather breaks, maybe outside at the Daily Brew, or the park nextdoor?
We can keep in touch on this thread.

Damn! I wish I was closer. Decatur is almost a 2 hour drive from here, but it sounds like a blast!

How far?? How long? Takes me most of 4 hours driving down 65 South thru Birmingham & I20 East from there to reach the north western 285 at Paces Ferry. Lots of road construction & thus many miles of 55 MPH or less w/lots of smokies guarding the road.

I'll be here this weekend, but unfortunately I have a date on Saturday. But I will be available anytime Sunday to meet at Rhodes Ferry or the DB.

Decatur Ukers:
I have been unable to contact my picking buddy.
Maybe I can contact him before Sun.

but Im still game for Sun afternoon at Rhodes Ferry/Daily Brew.
Even if its only 2 or 3 of us it would still be fun to compare ukes and pick a few tunes.

How does 2:00 sound? Remember thats the 1st day of DST.

Can do... can't stay too late though, as I will be bound back to Atlanta that evening. But want to meet & greet at least - will bring a few of my ukes as well.
