Newsletter - April, 2016

Welcome to the SF Bay Area Acoustic Guitar Society (SFBA AGS) newsletter. See below for recent news, upcoming events, and random speculation. Please contact me (Rich Morin) with news items, comments, or suggestions.

New News

Here's a summary of (relatively) current group-related news. Additions and corrections are welcome!

T-shirts!

Member Kay Coats recently said:

"Wish I could recognize other members of the Guitar Society to say hello."

Well, if the members are wearing our new, splendiferous T-shirts, recognition will be easy! It will also let other folk know about SFBA AGS, which is definitely a Good Thing. For details, visit our shop at Customized Girl.

Administrivia

Our membership keeps growing; we're now up to 290+ acoustic guitar fans. If you have friends who might like to know about local guitar events, please let them know about the meetup. Having more members means we'll all hear about more events; we'll also be able to sponsor more events and/or support more performers.

Old News

Here's a list of (dated, but still relevant) topics from previous newsletters:
