I'm still in, the time is really early, but I've got to ask why the time was changed from previous OMs? Those times seemed to work pretty well for most of us. Is it more optimal for some? My strategy changes to having to play silently.

Clint, the timing change was to accommodate folk based out east (Australia, Japan). It was set to be an evening session for those people, middle of the day in EMEA, and that has the knock-on impact on USA/Canada. And probably you would be as far West as one can get get, unless we have Forum members based in Hawaii.

My thinking would be for the following OM to be back to the previous timing.

I will undoubtedly be in the audience unless something arises which I can not say no to. :)

No worries, DP! I'll play for anybody at any time of the day that is willing to listen (or at least tolerate it). :)

Good to hear, Richard. Of course once in the audience, I think you should sing us a song...any song...doesn't have to be as challenging as a classic like Romeo & Juliet (though you delivered a wonderful rendition of that)

No worries, DP! I'll play for anybody at any time of the day that is willing to listen (or at least tolerate it). :)

Thanks, Clint, your community spirit is inspirational. Always a treat to listen to you perform.

No worries, Rod, that's understood. And if you only know last minute, even on the day, that'll be fine ... we'd make a plan.

David, can you take me off the audience list please?
Travel restrictions lifting means I'll probably be sitting on the ferry to Dublin on the 14th

I presume it will be recorded as usual and posted on the forum, so I can enjoy upon my return?  :)

Will do Brian.

It will be recorded, provided somebody (I think that would be Adrian) remembers to press the record button.

Good that it's in your hands, Adrian ... I routinely forget to turn recording on when in Zoom  :o

Hello friends,

Schedule is finally emptying and I can make the commitment. Please put me down for one song (will not go over 5 minutes in total).

Thank you for organising!

Hi David. Please add me to the audience list for August 14th. I’ll be on holiday on the Isle of Arran and don’t know how good the internet connection will be in our accommodation so I can’t guarantee being present, but I’ll do my best to be there and cheer you all on!

Hi David,

Can you take me off the list of the performers for August 14th? After just returning from a camping trip, I realized that, with the August 14th date being just after my next big scheduled camping trip, I don't think I'll have the energy to stay up into the night (I'm 9 hours earlier than GMT+1) and be ready.

I will definitely sign up for an Open Mic which is at a better time for me, sometime in the fall or winter, though!

Thanks,
 Bob
