Hey guys and girls and those inbetween.

I thought it would be a good idea to get a solid list of who should be coming to UWC this year.

ALSO, this list could be used to help find rides from airports to the event.

Note If you aren't on here and would like to be acknowledge as a UWCer just add a reply to this thread and I'll update the list for you.

50+ strong!

Thought I'd be building a uke. Since that's not happening I suppose I'll just be meeting folks, helping out where needed and playing uke. From this thread, you sound like a pretty rowdy, windy crowd. First time makes me a newbie. Any warnings will be taken seriously, well maybe. Stopped camping a long time ago - like a bed and bathroom these days. Any recommendations, closest to UWC site where others might be staying would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Excellent. I'd been wondering.

Prancingpony is a good egg. The fest last year was great fun, and a cool way to kick off Sunday.

Hi,

Looks like my ride won't be able to leave work early so am considering driving by myself to come early. But 12 hours alone, not so exciting.

Don't feel sad. I have done it and will do it again this year. It's worth it. Really.

Hey there! Does anyone want to take part in a large ukulele driven collab in support of the tsunami survivors in Japan? In consultation with hoosierhiver, we figured that after the group photo on Saturday evening, we could try taping a group of us singing and playing ukes to the final chorus of the Beatles classic song "Let it Be." It would make a great finale to the video and could be a very fun shared experience.

The finished video will mix scenes of musicians performing with scenes from the tsunami, and also have information about how one could help out.

For those who are attending UWC and interested in doing this, I have assembled a backing track and songsheets. Just send me an email at ronin@gopherp.com and I can forward the materials to you.

Also, for questions and other comments about this, I started a new thread here.

Updated with a list of people who are crazy and coming super early :)

Arriving on Wed, as originally planned (sad there's no Uke Build). Seems there's lots to see and do around there. Long, tiring drive but if any jamming Wed nite, I'm interested.
