  • 04-06-15 Revamped the BIUG website to integrate meeting notes and photos on a single page and make it easier to find “llike” items.

    Everything about the BIUG…membership info, meeting minutes, workshop notes (and plans!), etc… is under The BIUG menu item.  

    Everything about local Ukulele happenings…classes, UGH events, island kanikapila’s, summaries of past shows / “festivals” / “picnics”, etc. are under Local Ukulele Happenings menu item.

    Still a work in progress…
