Business: Re: Christmas Community Service: If someone is putting something together, let us know by e-mail with specifics and we will respond.

Re: December meeting: We will have a December meeting on the 16th usual time at Joey’s. The meeting will feature a song collaborating workshop. Members will be grouped and draw assignments, work on project in groups, then present toward the end of the meeting. No song circle, but bring instruments to perform projects.

Re: Showcases: members support monthly showcases. We will look into possibility of finding enough venues to allow monthly or even more frequent showcases. Members must support the showcases reliably. Majority said Friday was a good day for them. If we can we will find other days as well.

Re: Showcases: will be more frequent with fewer members to allow more performance time. Performers will be rotated to make sure everyone has opportunity to play.
