District 16 WOTFA – Evergreen Fiddler News for November 2023 – Reporter Dianne Gooch

Wow!  we had a jam of 24 musicians on October 27th. That was one of the largest groups we have ever had. We continue to meet for the 2nd & 4th Friday night jams. We begin at 3:00 pm and this allows folks to come and go with a more flexible schedule. The jams continue until about 9:00-10:00 pm at the Sisco Heights Community Club, 13527-99th Ave NE, Arlington, WA 98223.  We also have coffee and welcome finger treats to enjoy.

Our next  business meeting will be held in November 24th when we will have the election of chairperson for the coming year. We encourage all members to be present. Thank you to Sharman Smith for her service as District 16 treasurer. Thanks to Alison Grim who has agreed to take over this important position.

Our next WOTFA Midway Jam will be Sunday, November 26, 1:30-4:00 pm, at the Lynnwood Library (19200 44th Ave W, Lynnwood). We have 15-25 musicians at these jams. We have a great time playing fiddle tunes, bluegrass tunes, some swing tunes and being challenged with new tunes.  We are thankful to the Lynnwood Library for freely welcoming us to use this great room.

Our playout coordinator, Gary Nordby, has been asked for monthly entertainment jams at a new venue beginning in January. We will see how this develops and if we can get a group committed to these dates.
