BUSC Hits Home Run With Pitcher

A surprise guest showed up at the BUSC December meeting, former San Francisco Giants All-Star pitcher Mike La Coss.  Mike and his wife Theresa were looking for some place to eat in Baywood when they stumbled upon our Christmas party!

Mike is now an official member of the Baywood Ukulele Social Club, and we challenge any other ukulele club anywhere to a baseball game this spring!  Mike runs the iBaseball Channel.

January BUSC Meeting

The next meeting of the Baywood Ukulele Social Club will be Sunday, January 20, 2013 at La Palapa Mexican Restaurant in Baywoood Park, California.  Note the new meeting time 2:30 to 4:00pm.  

This will also be a going away party for Jim and Linda D'Ville as they embark on a cross-country ukulele excursion beginning in February.  The BUSC will continue to meet every third Sunday  for eternity.  If you are interested in helping the club move forward please plan to attend this meeting.

Not only is Lightning Joe's a great music store, Joe has one of the best musical instrument museums around with a ton of great old ukes.  A must visit when on the central California coast.  Visit my website Jim's more details.  This will be Jim's last workshop on the central coast for sometime, so don't miss out!
