Aloha and Happy New Year to all

2016 was a huge year for the Central Coast Ukulele Club with so many highlights I don’t know where to start. Here was just a few.

In January 2016 we partied in the New Year at Wyong RSL… 100’s of us there to celebrate with great friends, good music, yummy food  and terrific friendly club.

2016 February we had a brilliant time at the Blue Mountains Ukulele Festival,

SeaFM treasure hunt and many performances at nursing homes and retirement villages.

2016 March we were busy with our classes and performances at Lake Haven and Whatanobi, Easter and chocolate eggs and a beginners course at Tuggerah Library

2016 April we has performances  toasting the Coast, Bateau Bay Community, Ettalong Bowling Club, Wyong Council Chambers

2016 May – we went/performed in Hawaii for our cultural tour and met the wonderful Keale and Susan. Great teachers.. we even learn’t how to speak a little Hawaiian and dance the hula.  An amazing experience and we ended up on “Entertainment Tonight” LOL!! that was so much fun… and then we circumnavigated Ohau and had a brilliant time..this was  a trip we will never forget. We love Hawaii

2016 June – we went/performed in Darwin for the MUFF festival. Our gracious hosts looked after us and we experienced our second outback tour. We love Darwin.

2016 July – performances and open ukes at the Tallies, Lake Munmorah, Christmas in July.

2016 August – Wyee markets, nursing and retirement villages, Tall Timbers hotel, getting ready for our festival

2016 September – The Central Coast Ukulele festival… with The Nukes, Bosko and Honey, Cameron Murray, Mic Conway and much much more. A bevy of wonderful talented acts came from far and near to our festival and performed. Brilliant!

2016 November – Our brilliant Anna bay trip – Arabian nights with camel rides, belly dancers, feasts, dancing and trivia… wow what an amazing time.

2016 Christmas performances at local venues plus Gwandalan Carols and the wonderful Bucketty carols by candlelight.
