Winter meetings at Southwest Conservation Club (SWCC) update

A visit to the club Jan. 3 revealed, the floors are installed, the bathrooms have fixtures but no doors, the bar is incomplete, the kitchen is not installed. A lot has been completed but they have a ways to go. Bill Lamb, VP of SWCC, said it would not be finished by our Jan. 15 meeting. Rather than finding a new location for one month, there will be no January 15 jam.

The NIBGA board will meet at 2p at the Richards Restaurant 252 Frontage Rd, Columbia City, IN 46725. You are welcome to attend the meeting or contact us to have items discussed at the meeting Jan. 15.

Hello,
I'm reaching out in the hopes of making some connections in the area with beginner level banjo teachers. I'm up in the Elkhart, IN area. If you have any suggestions I would appreciate any information you can provide. I tried a local music school in Elkhart, but it wasn't a good fit.
Thanks for any information you can give me.

Aaron WilliamsAre there jams associated with these meetings? And if so, is anyone welcome? And if that is so, is there one in February? I need to find people to play music with up here and knock off a TON of rust 😂

Come see Kim Robbins, New Outlook, Branded Bluegrass and Blue Mafia.  Abby and I will be here.  Of course Jade Renee Bacon will be there with Kim Robbins.  This should be so much fun.

Maggie Bilby is holding a Bluegrass Jam Camp in May. She is a great instructor. If you want to join the jams this summer, dont miss this Camp.
