    2012 will probably be the only year I can make it, so I'll make sure I'll be there. I'll take a week off and fly in all the way from Germany. See you there!

    For anything else, I'd say you were being ridiculous, but... you're absolutely correct!
    UWC is, far and away, the best week I've had. I loved it. I love the people there, I love hanging out with people I love, I love meeting people that can become people I love that I can hang out with, I love playing, I love singing, I love being there.

    Next year, I'm thinking about bringing the bride and camping out, either on the field or between you and Matt. Actually, I'll put Matt in between us, to protect you from my wife and vice verse! (JUUUST kidding)

    I'm already saving up for my plane ticket!
    Just loving life. I get to make music for a living because of you people.
    Thank you.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I started thinking about next years UWC while driving home from last year's event. So many things learned, new friends made, can't wait to come back again. I'll be there. Definitely coming on Thursday. Let me know what I can do to help set up, mow, or anything. I'll be driving up from around Lexington KY too, so if anyone along the Lexington/ Louisville route wants a ride, just let me know.

    Hello friends,
    I've got UWC '12 on my calendar! I'm a newbie here, just found this forumn tonight. Got my uke in December, and am crazy about it! I'm counting down the days, but also hoping to bust my arse so as to not make a fool of myself and my rookie skills. I'll be checking back in from time to time to see what's up and what UWC is all about. Till then, it's back to the the basement to uke it up.

    See you soon in June,

    Best part of UWC? You cannot make a fool of yourself! Well, you can, but not by getting up and playing!
    We had every level play this year and the applause was as loud, if not louder, for the beginners as it was for the experienced players.

    No, to make a fool of yourself, you have to MC part of the thing and have seeso start playing "Suspicious Minds"... THAT starts a chain of events leading to much fool-making! *grin*

    See you there!

    How exciting. I'm definitely coming back for this one!

    Last year was a ton of fun. It was great to meet a lot of people from the board. It was also fun to drink with them!
