Minutes of August meeting 08/29/2015


Aloha BIUG members. Eighteen guild members crowded into Bob Gleason’s comfortable shop for our August 29 meeting. Bob emceed an auction of tools, both power and hand, and a number of other useful luthier items donated by himself and former BIUG member Tony Hoke. Enthusiastic bidders snapped up the bargains, earning the guild $550.

Gary Cassel spoke about our display at the Waimea Ukulele & Slack Key Guitar Institute at the Kahilu Theatre, including a gallery devoted to the sale of instruments.

Mike Perdue is spearheading the September 26th Sharks Coffee ukulele music and kanikapila as a lead in to our Hilo show. And he’s looking for players!

Following lunch Woodley lectured on scrimshaw engraving and inlay.
