I am outside of Albany. I went to it before I got my Fluke. 5 people were there and they were fairly accomplished. They were very friendly and even offered to let me use one of their spare ukes. I declined due to having never played the uke and didn't want to slow them down. I will end up going back though.
Was just reading your post on UUU. Thanks for the information! Then noticed your in upstate NY. Not sure where, but if you are near Schenectady they have a monthly group that meets in a cafe. I haven't been, only had my uke a few weeks, have you been?
