my girl and i will definitely be there both days...should be fun...was only able to go for like 2 hours last year

soliman
09-14-2008, 05:45 AM
I was thinking, again, as you drive south from Carmel Valley the first life guard tower 4. Further south on PCH is the Pay lot and lifeguard tower 2's there. How about tower three. Should be enough free parking, but if not the pay lot cost 8 bucks. 6PM sound good, or sooner. Just look for the UU sign.

If this works with you guys, the date and time is September 12 at 6 PM (or as soon as you can make it).

soliman
09-14-2008, 05:52 AM
I was thinking, since the experience level might vary. We should put out a couple songs we can kinda know before hand. Any suggestions?

thesoobz
09-14-2008, 11:27 AM

NukeDOC
09-15-2008, 06:18 PM
mission bay is always a good middle ground as far as san diego goes. anything more middle ground than that and youre in downtown.

gimme a date and time and ill see who i can drag out. but with all the other junk we've got going on with the band and in our personal lives, it might be a stretch to get people out.

thesoobz
09-15-2008, 06:23 PM
hmm icic that might be a good place.

nukedoc we were thinking spanish landing park so ther are benches and all that jazz. probably 6:30 bring whoever i guess! aha

but most importantly will you be there?

thesoobz
09-15-2008, 06:35 PM
4078 N harbor Dr san diego california 92106

thats one of the spots we are thinking (spanish landing)

or we might do mission beach.

Uke_Windu
09-15-2008, 06:39 PM
ok, i have been racking my brain...what bout spanish landing park?...its 4078 n harbor drive san diego , ca 92106...its right next to the airport...the only problem i am having is trying to find places with lights so we r not limited to short daylight u kno?...let me kno

NukeDOC
09-15-2008, 06:50 PM

Uke_Windu
09-15-2008, 07:19 PM
ok, so soobz and i have been chatting and we dont wanna stress out bout meeting this friday (kinda defeats the purpose)...so is there any dates taht a whole bunch of us can meet without putting anyone out?...its would be really cool if we could get a BUNCH of us together and jam out?...what about this saturday instead of friday?...that way it would be a day-off (at least for some of us i hope) and we could just hang and play?...

i guess what im saying is no decision is final yet cause we r trying to get as many people as possible to come out...

soliman
09-15-2008, 07:24 PM
Shoots, if we do it Saturday, we could meet during the day like 2 PM in Mission Bay, by the where they fly kites. Howz dat? No work, no problems we all meet for kanikapila!...An its half way for all.

watchmeuke
09-15-2008, 08:08 PM

jsigone
09-16-2008, 12:08 PM
if you guys do it Friday by the airport, I'll be running late, thats quite a bit of traffic for me to go through from Escondido. Torrey Pines is nice cuz I can head down Del Dios to Via Del. Saturday might work too, I'll have to check with the wifey to see if she made plans without telling me:rolleyes:

charlesadapon
09-16-2008, 04:46 PM
yeah i go to school in SB but im from chula vista/eastlake area....I'd prefer saturday, but friday is cool too, just not really late cause I wanna party up in downtown or north park after jammin':D

soliman
09-16-2008, 05:22 PM
If I had to pick, I'm in for Saturday. The more the betta. Who's in?

Had a great time at the SD UU jam (more that one is a jam session). Actually it was a great private lesson for me thanks to Wearymicrobe. Good times and thanks for the private lesson.

Mike tag your it. Let us know when the next SD UU Jam session/open mic. About three weeks would be good for me. Let us know. I'd post the picture, but cant get it on my apple photo album.

BTW, Wearymicrobe is a good teacher for those who missed.

09-20-2008, 06:06 PM
Wearymicrobe is a heckuva' good musician and an even better person. How many showed up? I just got home from work, myself. The first Wednesday of October, there will be a kanikapila in La Jolla at 6:00 P.M.. I'll post the details here, later. Ric

09-20-2008, 07:47 PM
I will set up the next one, with a time set about 2 weeks in advance and a map and everything that way there is no confusion. More people, get nuke to come out and the island guys.


Also Don't sell yourself short, you really can play very well. Little tricks here and there are all it takes to break the plateau that you were on.
