The first play day of 2007 will be on February 25th from 2.00 to 4.00 pm at the Riverside Gardens Community Centre (note that it is air conditioned). The theme will be water (which seems very appropriate as I write this!) and the musical directors will be your president and vice-president, Margaret and Heather. Musicians on other instruments may also be there.Please bring your recorders, music stands, a gold coin to help cover expenses and something to share for afternoon tea. Bring along any recorder playing friends too and if you membership has lapsed, please bring your membership dues. Please bring 'The Nations' by Lance Eccles if you have a copy. If you want advance copies of the music we will play, contact Margaret on 4725 8913.
Plans are underway for this year’s weekend. It will be held at Gumburu the weekend of May 25th – 27th. Registration forms will be available at the February play day.
