Hello All EDS Members ( ESPECIALLY new members !!!!!),
I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday period wrapping up 2012 and now with the fiscal cliff out of the way, we can ALL chart our course for some fabulous singing into 2013.
A number of folks have asked about a 'regular' scheduled event such as 3rd Sunday and I think it is a great idea, HOWEVER ... my son and his wife on the east coast are expecting (as in, are committed to making me a GRANDPA) in the next few weeks, so it seems likely that I will be traveling toward the middle or end of the month. As such, I am reluctant to scheduling an event that has a high likelihood of getting cancelled.
ALTHOUGH ... a number of you have guitars, ukeleles, keyboards and piano and especially in other parts of the bay area that people have had a harder time getting into San Francisco from. Maybe someone else would like to step up and host a January Eat, Drink & Sing event ??? I would love to see others in the north, south, east bay areas share in our momentum by opening their homes to our music loving singers !!! Of course, I would be happy to share our song books with anyone that will step up and host a January event.
Meanwhile, planning for a February event, the 3rd Sunday is Presidents Day weekend, which has been a 'ski' weekend for us and likely others would have conflicting plans. And the 1st Sunday, Feb 3, is Super Bowl weekend. So how about putting a pre-Valentines Day event on the 2nd Sunday, Feb 10. I hope you will all put it on your calendars and invite your friends to join us !!!! With several weeks of advance planning I am open to offers for hosts in other parts of San Francisco, which seems to be the most central to our membership. But otherwise, I have booked the Fontana Community room which has served us so well in the past.
As usual, please bring something yummy to share and we welcome donations ($5 suggested) to cover basic expenses. Instruments and other songs (with lyrics sheets to share) are always welcome as we constantly expand our singing repertoires. Let's start this one at 2:00pm, our usual time and we will go until 5 or so.
And again, bids are out for offers for a January event. If grandparent-hood does not come calling, I will gladly be there !!!!
Looking forward to singing with you all !!!!
