Greeting to all members.... and thanks for supporting this meetup group.

The last full moon event was very successful. Many of our regular members were in attendance, along with a few new members, and a few passers-by who joined in.The weather was perfect! The moon looked beautiful. The drumming was fantastic.

You have probably heard about the upcoming advanced only drum session coming up at my house, which is followed on the same day by a potluck lunch for all drummers, and sharing and practice sessions after lunch. My hope is that the advanced drummers will be willing to share some tips, rhythms, and techniques with the rest of the group. If needed, we can break up into smaller groups using different rooms in my house and garage. Please keep in mind, that I don't know exactly what will be covered in the sessions right now.  I do plan to keep the sessions short and you may be able to choose which sessions to attend. After everything is covered or presented, there will be some additional time for good old group drumming.

As we transition into colder weather, I am looking for inside venues where we can drum. My house works well, but I don't want to have all of the circles there. If you know of a place that might be good for drumming, such as a community center, recreation room, church community room, your home, or something else, please let me know.

That's all for now......
