World Rhythm Festival - Seattle

This isn't actually a drum circle for our group, but is an annual three day gathering in Seattle that comes highly recommended by Alan and Penny.

The website for the World Rhythm Festival is http://www.swps.org/. It has all the information that you will need. There is no admission fee for the event. You'll only have to pay for your lodging, meals, and transportation to get there. It starts on Friday but the events on that day are mostly for kids.

By indicating "yes" in your RSVP, we'll be able to see who is going to be there from our group. We can meet for meals, activities, or jamming.

    Wow, it was a wonderful event. The weather wasn't great (cold, drizzly some of the time, one hail storm) but it didn't cause too many problems. Entertainment was great, many good workshops to choose from (I learned a lot), many opportunities to bang a drum, and lots of nice people. On Sunday morning, our group started a drum circle jam outside at 11am that eventually grew to 12 people.

    Having a way to connect with others in our Meetup group was wonderful. Glad to hear the event will continue--possibly in a smaller format.

    I now have my plane reservations for Friday and Monday (flying Southwest from Oakland), and my hotel reservation (twin-twin) at the Inn at Queen Anne. I'm scheduled to share with Fern Filner, but to cut expenses, am willing to ask the hotel about roll-away cots, if someone else is interested in sharing with us. The more plans I actually have, the more I find myself looking forward to this!

    Updated: I'll be at "Inn at Queen Anne", which seems like the place to stay. Flying in on Thursday, out on Monday - four night total.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
