New group organizer

From: Yossi C.

Hello, Shalom, Ahlan members,

I've decided to step up and become the group organizer in order to keep the group alive.

During my last 4 years in the bay area I found that it's not easy to find fans of the beautiful middle-eastern music. This group has 422 members which is a great achievement and I couldn't let it dissolve.

One of the main items I'd like to drive is periodical meetings where we can get together to play music and enrich each other.

I'm not a musician and, by any means, not an expert but I'm playing the Oud for 10 years and during the first 6 years (before moving to San Francisco) I attended a group in Israel, led by Yair Dalal that plays and learn middle-eastern music. The group met every week for 3 amazing hours and, clearly, this is how I learned to love this music.

The meetings will be mainly for fun but it'll be nice to also have a musician as a professional leader.

I'd like you to share your thoughts and more ideas on how to make this group rock!
