Here are the hosts for upcoming Seasons of the Ukulele. If you're keen to host, but haven't had a chance to sign up yet, Seasons needing hosts are listed below with no name next to them. Just reply to the end of this thread and I will add you.

Guidelines and tips are below the list of upcoming hosts. Past themes/challenges are in posts #2 #3 #4 & #6 below.

If you have not hosted before check out this video by Linda Louden on most things you will need to be able to do - Creating Playlists and Posting Your Season on Ukulele Underground Tutorial

511 Nov 28th - Dec 5th ... MsBean

512 Dec 5th - Dec 12th ... DesertPavement

513 Dec 12th - Dec 19th ... JTSteam

514 Dec 19th - Dec 26th ... YorkSteve

515 Dec 26th - Jan 2nd ...

516 Jan 2nd - Jan 9th ...

517 Jan 9th - Jan 16th ...

518 Jan 16th - Jan 23rd ... Barbablanca

519 Jan 23rd - Jan 30th ... Joko


Basic Guidelines
If you'd like to host a Season, choose a week during which you'll have the time and energy to be a good host.
If things change and you're unable host, please contact me (a private message is best) ASAP so a substitute can be found.
The only week with a theme in advance is the Christmas week - usually the last full Season before the 25th, but this year it will be 514 (513 still seemed too early!)

Good ideas for hosts
During your Season, we're in "your house", so you can set things up your way, but there are a few expectations:
Hosts must have posted at least one video for a Seasons challenge---more is much better---the more you've participated, the better you'll be at hosting a great Season.
Please comment in your Season thread on the entries, add comments to the YouTube videos, and post a wrap video at the end of the week.

Important details
Each Season should be announced no sooner than late Saturday evening mainland USA time (try to be sure it's after whatever you consider dinner time). At that time, the host posts the theme, the rules, and the prizes for the week (if there are any). The host should emphasize that no videos should be posted before 12:00 AM Sunday Hawaii time.
Each Season ends eight days later on Sunday at 11:59:59 PM Hawaii time (a quirky tradition begun by chrimess which reminds us each week of the origin of all this ukulele music). So consecutive Seasons overlap on Sunday, with one Season closing and one Season opening. (Seasonistas who live outside mainland USA/Canada time zones have the same length of time to participate, but their start and end times are calculated in their own time zones.)

Hosts
Choose theme and set parameters. (How many songs allowed? Multi-tracking? etc.)
Post theme Saturday night (USA mainland time); don't allow videos posted until Sunday.
Season ends at 11:59:59 PM Hawaii time the next Sunday.
Select winners if there are any (using a method of your choice) and announce them soon after then end of your Season.
You can offer prizes for the winners, but it's not compulsory. Prizes need not be expensive. (Certificates are fine; joke prizes are fine; but ukuleles are the best prizes... )
It's great if the host posts a video during the week, whether it's an intro video, a response video, a performance, or one (or more) of each.

Participants
The more the merrier---encourage new people to join us.
Follow the host's specifications for that week. (Read the host's challenge thread carefully and/or watch the challenge video.)
Comment on others' videos, and not just your top favorites! Everyone likes encouragement. Your comment might help someone enormously. Each comment contributes the positive vibe of the Seasons, and strengthens the aloha spirit of the challenges.


A quote from former Seasons volunteer coordinator and ukulele hero, ukuloonie:
I think that we have a good group here who participate each week. I was thinking if you don’t see somebody for a while on the Seasons, it might make somebody’s day if they were just contacted to see how they were doing, not to find out why that they are not participating, just to say hello, thinking of you and hope all is well.

They’ve pinned it!

May as well host 461 please. That should take us through the end of 2020, right?

Thanks again for stepping in to lead the goat parade Steve.
