One of the friday night attendees works for the local news, so the class got a little bit of love on the interwebs...

I had the family in Alaska last August on a cruise. One stop was Juneau. The girls went off to collect baubles and I was going to wander the tourist traps. I had my uke in the case with me. One of the tour guys on the pier offered to throw some coins in my case for a tune. I suggested he give me a bus ticket to the glacier instead. He did and I did and all was right with the world.

Good luck with keeping the uke group going. It is a contagious sort of thing that sometimes takes time to develop.
