A surprisingly big March meeting

aus3131SXSW was going strong, but did that stop our members from attending? We had 38 members show up at the Memorial Methodist Church classroom for our March meeting–pretty good, we think. We learned a new song, Miles and Miles of Texas (in Presentation Format), made famous by the band Asleep at the Wheel. (The “presentation format” has some extras that Bob taught us at the meeting.)

We also revived a “western” song that we sang in our early meetings: Don’t Fence Me In in Presentation Format. With the new stylings we learned for this classic, we appeared to have a great time performing these new and old songs.aus3132 Bob said it sounded great from up at the front.

There was also a good bunch of folks who performed in our “open [non-] mike” section. Thanks to Kendra and Layci, Roxanne and Chris, Woody, Steve, Bob (and yours truly, Walter). Everyone finds a great, accepting audience at our meetings.

There will be a chance for AUS coming up on Sunday, April 28 that will be a good opportunity to thank Memorial Methodist Church for letting us use their building for our meetings. They’re having a celebratory aus3133lunch to honor those in their congregation who are over 90 years old. We’ve been asked to be the entertainment. If you’re interested in being part of this group, send an email to austinukes@gmail.com.

Our next meeting is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, April 11 from 7 – 8:30 p.m., at the Memorial Methodist Church, of course. Hope to see you there.
