    UWC just is. Mike gives it breath and life and makes it happen. The rest just is. Show up and move with the rhythm.

    I hate crowds. I hate loud sounds. I hate big social settings.

    I love UWC, because it just is.

    Don't try to add structure beyond what Mike does. He knows what he's doing and throws the world's best party. Show up and just be.

    I know I ain't getting any sleep at UWC! But I love falling asleep to the sound of harmonies by a campfire.

    That's the best part, drifting off to Ukes and waking up to them.
    UWC; only those who have not been can rationalize not going.

    Remember people, this is a private party. Sort of like the UU site. We are guests, we don't own it and the people who run it are very cool people so just be nice. Enhance the experience, don't change it.
    You're rules are perfect.

    The second part is very true and is exactly what makes UWC so special.

    I agree with Mim! I have been there every year since I found out about it right before the second one. Mike throws the best party I go to every year and definately the longest.
    I'm an old guy. I listen to the good players at the open mic. When I get sleepy enough, I go to bed sleep and get up in the morning and start playing again. Can't get any better than that!

    Does anyone have a spare bed at UWC this year? I'd like to stay in a house or cabin with some UWC folks, and would be happy to help with expenses. It's possible that Mim or Mainland Mike might vouch for my character, if need be. Just PM me if you have any room available. Thanks, Stephen (aka Steedy). P.S. That's me in the photo.
