It was six years ago when Ariem Anthony started BADC on May 17, 2008. Over the years, membership climbed to around 400, where it has hovered for the last few years.
This drum circle will commemorate the starting and long term survival of the group. Are you a member from way back then? Please come and join us.
I chose the 16th because I can't do a circle on the 17th. Sunset is at 8:10pm so we should have almost two hours to drum before it gets too dark.
I changed the start time to 6pm for the (bring your own) picnic. We'll eat, talk, plan, share stories, and "unofficially" maybe do some drumming. The official drum circle starts at 7pm.
Use the parking lot near the intersection of Paseo Padre Parkway and Mission View Drive. We'll be on the covered performance stage if it is not already in use. Bring a chair or something to sit on. Restrooms are available in the park and dogs are allowed.
Please RSVP if you are planning to attend. I hope to see another good sized group so we can have some lively jams.
6pm : informal picnic (no potluck). Bring your own food and drink. 7pm (or when we are done eating) : drum circle.
