Plans for the Wynnum jam
Good news and bad news.
The good news is we are starting a new jam on the bay side of Brisbane. The bad news is our planned venue was flooded in the recent storms and won’t be available until February.
Once the flood damage is repaired, we expect to meet at the Waterloo Bay Leisure Centre on the fourth Friday of the month. This is the home base of the BAYSIDE UKULELE GROUP aka the BUGS. You can find us at 241 Tingal Road, Wynnum (opposite Barton’s Motor Group).
There are about 30 parking places on site and off-street parking is available.
The following transport lines have routes that pass near Waterloo Bay Leisure Centre. Bus No.220, 223, 224 & 240. There is a 2-minute walk from bus stop 2 to the Centre. If you are coming by train, catch the Cleveland /Shorncliffe line to Wynnum Central Station. There is an 8 min walk to the Centre.
The Auditorium where the jam will be held can accommodate more than 120.
There is also a canteen that can serve food and non-alcoholic drinks. We will pursue this option for later jams when we have conducted a survey of attendees to gauge interest. You can BYO beer and wine if you wish.
There will be the usual BUMS presentation of the songs via a projector and PA system. There will be three sets presented by three different leaders or bands with a wide variety of genres.
We are looking forward in hosting our very first BUMS jam on the East side of Brisbane.
