Monthly Meeting March 2020

Brady brought us his original shark attack song, ‘Ocean Lover’

March is tricky. Coming in like a lion and going out like a, mmmm, different lion, like it does here in Wyo, with a Friday the 13th thrown in for good measure, it’s not easy to navigate. Worst still, that first Tuesday cropped up so fast it caught many of us off guard. Our turnout reflected this tumultuous month. Welcome to Peter Inells and Chris Smith, who joined us for a listen this month.

Peter watching on while Marvelous Marvin takes us to Jamaica.

Reports were the Valentine’s Day Dinner/Concert went well, and Steve had a solo gig up in Chugwater. If your time machine isn’t in the shop, you can still catch that on the 7th.

No scheduled group song, per se, but Keith invited all to join in and sing like Ringo on ‘Little Help From My Friends’.

What will you do when I sing out of tune? Will you stand up and hurl stuff at me???

Thanks to Rich Ryan for providing most of the photos used this month.
