YAPI October News and Notes
We had a good time at the October YAPI. We had 2 new performers,
Chris Gooch and John Henry as “The Gooch Experience.” They
brought lots of fans and we hope they come back in November.
We heard from Tyler Frazier, who we had not heard from in a
while, and it was great to hear him again. Will and Irie Farr
performed together for the first time and it was wonderful!
Irie also sang some solos and played piano for the first time.
As you can see, we enjoy lots of variety at YAPI.
Thanks to all those who helped load equipment in and out of Maui
Wowi. Everyone’s help is greatly appreciated.
YAPI is an event for youth and we like to have the youth in charge.
YAPI is looking for local youth to help with the following:
- taking pictures (Any young photographers out there?)
YAPI news for the mailing list and website, or perhaps
writing an article for the school newspaper or local newspaper
(Any young writers out there?)
- helping to get performers signed up
and getting people on the YAPI mailing list (Any young
organizers out there?)
- putting up posters around Wimberley and at all the
schools or making a new poster (Any young publicists out
performers and basically running the show (Any young “hams”
- setting up and breaking down and running the sound
system (Any young sound engineers out there?)
If any local youth
want experience in any of these areas, please contact Brenda
at BFreed1@earthlink.net or call 512-847-1022. Brenda would
be happy to apprentice anyone who is interested in any of these
areas. It is so cool to have the youth run YAPI as much as
