First meeting at Towpath Café, August 15, 2011


Towpath Café

A lively, enthusiastic group of RGC guitarists assembled at Towpath Café Monday to share their love of guitar music. After a discussion of upcoming events and other Club matters, we enjoyed two rounds of solo playing.

This was our first time at Towpath prompting a spirited discussion at the end of the evening of the pros and cons of Towpath compared to Abilene’s and other venues. It certainly is a congenial and comfortable setting with good food and drink and exposure to the community. There is a slight problem, however, with ambient noise requiring light amplification to which some players are not accustomed.

After hearing valid arguments on both sides, it was suggested that we consider rotating venues possibly even finding other places to meet as well. The Core group will take up the matter this Saturday at the regular Core meeting. Anyone who wishes to attend or to add their input, please contact us through the Contact button on this website.
