Great Sunnyvale drum circle! Location & map above. 
UUFS welcomes you.  ( $1.00 donation optional ) 
Lots of drumming with a few guided activities. 

Please arrive on time - doors open at 6:50pm for sign-in. Until then we are busy with set-up. There are plenty of upholstered chairs. OK to bring your favorite stool.

BADC meets once every two months at UUFS.

    I am dealing with some health matters this afternoon and evening. It is better that I pass on this evening's gathering. Sorry about that. I hope you folks have/had a good meetup, and thanks to our hosts for providing a great venue. Take care. Have a good summer. I hope I will be on hand for forthcoming gatherings of this group.

      Denise, so sorry you missed our circle. We are going to make it bigger next time - I think we can accommodate a few more than 30 people. We'll probably post the September date of the next one in mid to late August.

    Thank you to BADC Meetup members who gathered tonight! newbies, novices, and seasoned drummers... excellent set-up team, UUFS support, and creative leadership from John, l like that Jump Cut! Good to see old friends. and, as the song goes, See you... in September!! (the sun won't be as bright in your eyes through the stained glass windows...)

    What a great group that attended... a mix of new, returning, and long time drummers. I had a great time. We all played well together. I edited the attendance list and I think 24 is the right number. Thanks to Laurel and the volunteer helpers for setting up and resetting, and to everyone who attended.

    July 21, 2014

    • Laurel A.

      yes there are always extras, and lots of other percussion instruments in the middle of circle ~

      July 21, 2014

    • elaine

      great - thanks!

      July 22, 2014

  • Laurel A.

    Setup team: Julie, Tim L., Tim B, Cheryl, and new volunteer Jose Tormo. Thank you! See you at 6:15 on Friday...

    July 21, 2014

  • Laurel A.

    I have four people now on our Setup Team, Julie from UUFS; and Tim, Cheryl, and Tim Barsky from Meetup - Thank you all who volunteered.

    If anyone would like to sign up for a back-up slot, please let me know. Things often change, and I'm a fan of the back-up plan.

    But now no danger of having to cancel. Hooray!

    July 20, 2014

    • Laurel A.

      Correction, Tim Barsy... ;-)

      July 20, 2014

    It's vacation time and lots of people from UUFS will be gone. I have only one volunteer from Meetup to help with chairs. It takes a minimum of four people. Know that UUFS is enthusiastic about sharing the chapel space with BADC and would like to continue to do so, but due to fire marshall restrictions and other factors, setting up the circle of chairs has to meet some specific requirements. For Friday July 25 we need a team from Meetup to do this, otherwise our only option may be to cancel the circle for July. Please let me know if any of you July 25 attendees are able to be there at 6:15 to 6:30pm to take on a role with setting up circle, i.e., stacking chairs. (Please do not volunteer if you have ANY physical limitations, sensitive bodies, or recent injuries.) I do need a couple additional volunteers to arrive early to anchor a few other things and help with sign-in.

    July 19, 2014

    • Cheryl

      I can help with chairs.

      July 20, 2014

    • Laurel A.

      Super, thank you! I'll put you on the email list for the Set-up Team. And i promise you won't be inundated with email.

      July 20, 2014

  • Laurel A.

    Hi - if anyone has taken photos of drum circle at UUFS, please send good shots to me, or post them to our album. Thnx.

    July 6, 2014

  • Laurel A.

    Our photo album is empty! Any of you attending... do you mind being photographed? and is there someone who enjoys doing photography? on July 25...

    July 5, 2014

    • DjembeJohn

      I have never had anyone complain about being included in a photo.

      1 · July 5, 2014

    • Laurel A.

      Some people do mind for various reasons and are hesitant to speak up. If this is true for anyone, please email me, and I'll make sure you are not in the camera's eye!

      July 5, 2014

  • Laurel A.

    Please email me soon if you can arrive at 6:20pm on July 25 at the chapel space, to stack chairs. Let me know if you can do one or both ends, unstacking at the end, from 9pm - 9:15pm. Thank you!

    July 5, 2014

    • Laurel A.

      Thank you - I have one volunteer from Meetup group - need a couple more. I will be gathering some helpers from UUFS too.
