Better map to UWC

May 30, 2011

DeG made a great map for all the pertinent locations regarding the Ukulele World Congress. Here is the link: http://www.tinyurl.com/uwcmap

Reminder: The 2011 UWC is June 3 and 4, although many people are showing up at the Needmore field earlier in the week. Here’s a thread at the ukuleleunderground.com forum that will tell you more and who is coming.

Here’s another UU thread about the weekend.

Bring a sweater

June 1, 2010

The latest forecast calls for highs of 80 and 83 on June 4 and 5. But the lows will be in the 60′s at night. Last year, I learned that the vast tree coverage in Brown County makes it even cooler. So bring something warm to wear!

Currently, there’s a 30% chance of rain on Friday and at 40% on Friday. Fingers crossed! :)

Need a Ride to the UWC?

May 30, 2010

There’s a web site that can connect you to other folks in your area who are going to the UWC. It’s called “Pick Up Pal” and you might be able to catch a ride with a fellow uker!

Weather Forecast for UWC

Looks like rain is possible for the UWC this year.

Bring your rubbers.

BRIDGE OUT! ..and other news

May 29, 2010

The fabulous DeG made a map of Brown County pointing out the UWC relevant points of interest. A bridge is closed between Nashville and the UWC site, and that’s included in the map.

We’re less than a week away from the Ukulele World Congress. Sorry I’ve not updated the blog very much, but folks have been posting regularly on the Ukulele Underground forum. Check it out for more UWC info and updates.

I’ve learn that Ken Middleton and 13chicken (Matt) won’t be able to attend. I’m bummed. I know I’ll meet them someday, but it will be UWC Day 1 + how many other days too many for me :(

I was on Louisville radio Friday to play my Doctor Who songs and mentioned the UWC. I know some people are upset on the prospect of the UWC getting too popular. But I don’t think we have to worry about that. Considering the location and its lack of facilities and amenities, I think a lot of first-time attendees will decide not to return in 2011. The true ukers are a hardy lot. The chaff will fall away! (is that an appropriate metaphor?)
