CFL Drum Folks,
Thanks for the clarification Michael. I think the changes are working well and I'm glad to see our community is growing. As our community grows we will hopefully see a wide range of events and circles with different purposes. The 'Central FLorida' title works well and helps keep us connected. The drummers and the drum circle community should be welcoming and ready to grow (cause its happening folks). In time we will hopefully have a huge list of circles across the CFL. There are so many and so many types of people that one circle can't feed them all. Some will be very welcoming to anyone, others will have standards of being, and others will have musical standards (African, Middle Eastern, Latin, etc) . While we only have two the choices are slim, but when we have many we can skip the ones we can't make or don't feel welcome in. There is no reason to but heads or sling shame.?
*One note for Michael: you stated that you would post all 'free' drum circle events, but the two you emailed about are not free. I understand why, but consistency is important when communicating to everyone. If we are going to promote all things drum, cool I can't wait to read more. But if the group doesn't have this in mind we should keep it as free. If there is an issue with Free or no free maybe the $ events can be promoted through emails and no$ events should be on the calendar. (not sure if this would work, but I hope you enjoyed my 2 cents :-)
now.... 1-2-3 everybody drum!
