It seems that we use the term ‘friendly and welcoming’ a little too much. But we can’t help it if it is true, particularly in the case of Monday nights at the Lowlands Bowling Club.
Started back in March 2012, this group grew out of a Monday night ukulele entree class that started in January 2012. This group had become quite cohesive and then saw its size double with an influx of new ukestrans who came along to the Newkulele Festival. So what was a group of mid teen numbers (down to 12 in winter) has now become something to rival the regular size of the Ukastle Ukestra, now boasting up to 30! It is currently averaging mid-20s.
Mostly Monday Wicko ukers are workers in their 50s, with a few retirees, who don’t want to work too hard on the uke. Relaxing, having a good time, and the drink break – all are important aspects for this group. Correct me if I’m wrong (it’s Mark writing, interpreting Jane’s ramblings).
Jane takes Monday nights, starting 5:45, finishing at 7:45pm.
If you are a relative beginner, this might be an appropriate group to start with.
