March 1 Ukulele Jam

Greetings!


As I mentioned earlier, the search continues for a new venue. The Collins Bay Legion looked promising, but it didn't quite pass muster.
So we continue with our jam at the Kingston Community House. We jam again this Wednesday, March 1, 7pm, at 99 York Street. Bring along your favorite songs to share with the group. You can find my choice of songs here. It's a selection of a couple of new songs and songs we've done before.

I know some people have trouble finding 99 York Street. Here's a map showing the location. The X marks the spot. If you're driving south on Division Street, turn left at the 2nd traffic lights south of Concession Street. The blue lines indicate where parking is allowed on the streets on Wednesday evenings. Watch the parking signs. Note that there's no parking on York Street until past 108 York Street. I suggest parking in the first available spot on York Street after that point. The Kingston Community House is not well marked, so look for the street number, 99.


So remember, we jam at the Kingston Community House, 99 York Street in downtown Kingston, on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month (excluding holidays). 7pm. The cost is $2 per jam to cover the cost of room rental. If you haven't yet printed off your own copy of our favorites document, you can download it here.
