YAPI February Notes
WOW! What a great YAPI night! The whole upstairs of Idlewild
was filled with performers and listeners! Everyone did such
a great job. It was great to have a room to accommodate this
turnout. Yes, I think the new Idlewild location is working
out just fine!
We had several new performers including many people from the
Wimberley school band including YAPI veteran, Bryan Colca, who
brought his band ensemble: Angie Holliday, Erick Bauman and Mr.
Clarkson who sat in for a missing member. It was great to have
the band directors from the Wimberley school there. A big “THANK
YOU” to Mr. Bingham and Mr. Clarkson for their support
of YAPI. Please continue to encourage your band members to participate
Congratulations to Bryan Colca for bringing in the most new
performers. He received the complimentary pizza from Idlewild
for his efforts.
Thank you, Alex, for donating the pizza and thank you to Ellen
Flocke and all others who helped with equipment.
It was a pleasure to hear newcomer Wyatt Ellis on the electric
bass. Anyone who thinks bass solos can’t be interesting
will change their minds after hearing Wyatt, who as promised
to return. Yeah!
Thank you to Cynthia Pickens who sponsored a YAPI ad in the
Feb. Wimberley Texan school newspaper. If anyone would like to
to help with YAPI, or sponsor an ad somewhere, please contact
Brenda at BFreed1@earthlink.net or 512-847-1022. It would be cool if there could be one helper
and one sponsor per month. A photographer is especially needed.
Brenda would provide the camera if someone would volunteer to
take pictures of each performer. Volunteers are also needed to
get people signed up on the email list and help get consent forms
The email list did not get passed around at the Feb. YAPI and
there were many new performers and new people in the audience.
If you were there and know of people who would have wanted on
the list to receive announcements about YAPI events, please email
their name and email address to: BFreed1@earthlink.net.
YAPI February News
you to webmaster, Roger Humes, Electrato Graphics, for being
