Hi everyone, Thought I'd share an update (and history) on the Midlands Ocarina Group.

I created the group back in 2013, however it wasn't until November 2016 in which we had our first meet in Birmingham City Centre (with 4 people). It went really well and was a lot of fun. We spent our time listening to each other play the ocarina and sharing our experiences within the community. After this my life became quite eventful with me passing my driving test and getting a new job, so unfortunately the group died down.

Fast forward to now, we've recently had a new member join who has been passionate in getting the group running again, and we had our second meetup last Saturday (again with 4 people). It was very similar to our first meetup, and again was a lot of fun in listening to each other play, and hearing people's stories.

Folks from the meetup showed an interest in getting t-shirts, however I lost the original file of the logo I'd created for the group. I therefore redesigned our logo so we could get t-shirts, and to give a fresh look for the group. I like the new logo much better :)

Things are looking up for the Midlands Ocarina and we have a meetup planned for next month. I shall keep everyone updated with how to group is going here. If you from the UK and are in the Midlands or surrounding areas and want to join us, there's a link to our FB group in my signature (our logo).

Guess I can drop the update that we did, in fact, meet up again a month later. (And have our next meetup planned too!!)

[+] We're a pretty bunch, aren't we?
You can also see the video I put together from our hastily recorded clips from that day here:
