New Owner Required

From alfiedog on 2/26/2022 3:23:39 PM

Anyone fancy taking up ownership of this group ? We are hopefully re locating to Portugal (we being me, my wife carol, and our dog bailey) It doesn't seem appropriate for somebody residing outside the UK to run this group. Please PM if your interested. If i don't get any interest I'll just close the group down, which would be a real shame.

Oh, that's a shame for us, but not of course for you.
Hope it all works out well and that you have a great time!

Might help to mention what’s involved in running the group . Just a thought

Depends on how much you wanna put into Tony. You could just sit back, have your name down as the group owner, approve new members, and that'd be it. But I'd prefer someone who'd put a bit of effort into it. I used to organise the annual UK 5 day, but since lockdown, and due to personal reasons I haven't done anything for the last few years. It'd be great of someone could resurrect this event.

Eddie, thanks for everything that you’ve done to make the group so successful and popular and good luck to you both for the future.
Portuguese bluegrass (Fadograss)) on the agenda?
Thanks again mate.

Sorry @alfiedog - it seemed to double post my comment!
The picking day I came to up north (for us in notts), ages ago kicked off a massive part of my learning, meeting a few folk from the midlands too and some very friendly folk.

I’d love to do more but with a 2yo and 3yo I’m not getting much spare time at the mo!

Hope someone can pick up the reins!

Many thanks for all your hard work over all the years Eddie. You went above and beyond, to bring the UK banjo community together. Portuguese 5 doesn't have the same ring to it! Best of luck mate.
