    Just letting everyone know that we have a small group of enthusiastic Uke players in Melton Victoria. We gather under the name MUSE (Melton ukulele and singing ensemble). We meet every Tuesday evening (except during School holidays). We have been going for nearly three years starting with about 5 foundation members, we now number about eighteen if everyone attends. Always happy to welcome more to the fold.

    No change in websites

    Thanks…Ginger

  31. Ginger May 10th, 2014 6:57 am

    Me again! I’ve been updating my uke groups page for fellow ukers embarking on a 3 month camper van round trip Hobart/Cairns. I found a number of groups who have public websites (Yahoo, Facebook, etc) haven’t listed a contact phone number or email address on their sites (not that I could find, anyway!) and consequently, to make an enquiry requires joining the website. When travelling joining multiple websites is not something one always wants to do. So…I’m asking if groups could include a contact on their site for travellers to make a quick enquiry before arriving in your town/city. Thanks…Ginger

  32. Woodshed May 10th, 2014 1:42 pm

    Ginger: Thanks very much for the updates. And have a great roadtrip!

  40. Brenda Meehl November 4th, 2014 6:39 am

    Just moved to Invercargill, and looking for some uke playmates? Anyone here who would like to meet for a strum, form a club? Please email me. Cheers

  41. Peter van der Stam February 20th, 2015 1:10 am

    To whom it might concern,

    I am wondering why so many club are only to be contacted via “Facebook”
    I hate facebook, because as soon as you have an account your mailbox is flooded with crap of people wanting to be your friend.
    I can find my own friends without facebook.

    SO please Ukelele clubs, make yourselves known without this so called social media.
    I want to play the thing!
    Cheers Peter
    Willoughby, Sydney

  42. Ginger February 20th, 2015 12:26 pm

    @Peter van der Stam. Couldn’t agree with you more! So…to get past the problem I opened a totally fictitious FB account. Wrong name, gender, birthday, place of birth and place of residence. (FB says I was born in Guyana and live in Jersey!). I opened the account over a year ago now and have only had one friend request from someone, of course, I don’t know…as no one can know ‘me’! I get no other messages…except from the 2 friends from the other side of the world that I have let in because they cannot/won’t contact me any other way. Just a thought!

  43. Vanessa February 21st, 2015 12:14 am

    @ Ginger and Peter van der Stam. I find FB to be a wonderful tool to connect with like minded uke people. You can completely control all incoming emails and friend requests. The delete button is your friend. What is the alternative on the www? Any thoughts?

  44. Barbara February 27th, 2015 12:09 am

    Wanting to know if there is a uke club in Hervey Bay/Maryborough region. Wanting to join and learn. Am having no luck finding one locally

  45. Ginger February 27th, 2015 2:25 pm

    @Vanessa, hi, our uke group uses a free Yahoo groups site – https://au.groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/h-u-g/info. Members have access to all our songsheets for download, a post facility, a database for EOIs in activities, a photo section, a membership list, an event calendar, a reminder service which can be set up for regular reminders (e.g. our monthly open mic night) and a facility for polls. Non-members can view our information, including contact details, on the front page without joining. I often get emails or phone calls from travelling users who just want to drop in on their travels. There’s also WordPress which looks good although I haven’t used it…yet! Cheers…Ginger

  46. Ginger February 27th, 2015 2:34 pm

    @Vanessa. Hi again. The friend request is one of my biggest bugbears with FB. If it comes from someone you know slightly…a friend of a friend maybe…it feels churlish to deny even though you know the request is simply to bump up their ‘friends’ numbers. It’s the main reason I opted out of FB under my real name. (Even my son, who knows my false FB name couldn’t find me!) Also, forgot to mention, at Yahoo Groups, members have the option to receive posts individually, as a daily digest, or not at all and just view posts on the website. We have a number of interstate and overseas members who just like to keep up with what we’re doing &/or access our songsheets. Leave you be now! Ginger

  47. Vanessa February 27th, 2015 10:58 pm

    Thank you Ginger. Your information is much appreciated.

  48. Ginger June 24th, 2015 4:20 pm
