Last month was great; with a new lady member! We're ever only a few, but some good nights have been had. Come along and see, you might just enjoy it.

We will hold the next session (Monday 5 November) at the Fox and Hounds, Coalburns, Ryton NE40 4JN at 1930 -2130 hrs. We're in the North but have changed the venue. Eshed will be joining us before setting off to walk Hadrians Wall the next morning, camping on the way. He's braver than many in't North 
We'll plan to run some sessions in the South in 2019.

Is that the "Deep South", Nigel; like Darlington or some other strange land?

Yes, it's that far South but not in the real South, such as Leeds. I once saw a map which divided Great Britain into the North, Midlands and South - Leeds was in the Midlands. A good wind up, eh.
I once watched Carlisle v Leeds football game (no love between those supporters) when a
Leeds guy fell over (he was diving) and feigned injury. The Carlisle lot chanted "soft southerners".
Winston - we are thread creeping!

It's one of those annoying things, I have a table tennis match on in Whitley Chapel that night. So close to the venue, but can't be in two places at once. We won't finish before 10pm. Good luck with the venue and the evening.

Title: North East Melodeon Group - Next session on 28 February
Post by: Nigel on February 17, 2019, 11:31:04 PM
Folks.
We now have 2 sessions being run within our Group - in the North and South both on  a monthly basis. 

The next Southern Session will be held on Thursday 28 February from 7-10 at pm at the Britannia Inn, 1 Archer St, Darlington DL3 6LR. Please contact Janice - jervaulx@me.com - if you need a lift from the Railway Station.
At the first session, we agreed that a slow and steady element for relatively new starters would be held at 7-8 pm in order to learn a new tune. More expert players could join us from 8 pm onwards.
We'll learn Rogues March (dots are given in our facebook page "North East Melodeon Group") in the slow session next Thursday. Our own Bob Ellis and Mel Biggs give us examples in www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8SypNJG3mk and www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KZb4lu_b1o
Subsequently, we'll play this tune, Shepton Mallet (learnt last time) and look at other tunes to learn in the future.

I'm not clear from the last post when the next north event is, and whether there is a tune or two set for that. I'll try to get there, if at all possible, now that I'm playing again.

Afterwards, we’ll reinforce learning of Shepton Mallet led by Janice.
