Hankies Club Information

Hi all,
Just to remind everyone that we meet every Tuesday night at:

The Saddlers Arms, Fishley Lane, Little Bloxwich, Walsall WS3 3PS

See Maps And Picture Below

You do not have to live in Staffordshire to come and join us - everyone is welcome!
Please don't feel that you may not be good enough to join such an exalted group of players -
we regularly hit hundreds of bum notes at each meeting.
You don't even have to wear a suit like David Martin to play, just come as you are!
Nudists particularly welcome.

Phil (Risky), Roger (Roger-Bayliss), Gren (Shropshire Hankie - the original!), Roger,

Alan Bakewell.
By George what a handsome lad. He's so good he plays that Strat back to front.

Ian (Stratpicker) Plant and Foot pedals - he's so hot he needs a fan to cool him down!

Do you recognize any of these people Deer??
Must be the ones we can hear in Wyrley when we're trying to sleep.

Image
Let It Rip!!

Image
And I say it's in "G" now put the backing track on.

Image
I just love the way you do that.

Ecca Mid Flingel 6th October 2009

He just smiled and gave me a Vegemite sandwich.


And Now For The Rules:

Be there on time. Latecomers will be thrashed with an "Eccastick" :twisted: :twisted:

Tune your guitar silently. Do not tune up whilst someone else is playing. ( Remember the Eccastick ). :twisted:

Newcomers and first time visitors must stand at the double doors with one trouser leg rolled up to the knee.
( We'll know if you were invited or not by which trouser leg is rolled up ). 8-)

You'll be presented with a small book and a pencil. This is not a gift. Write down the tunes you wish to play
and the BT's will be sorted ready for you to play. ( This method is what we call organisation and means some bugger actually
gets to play something during the evening ).
If you can't manage the pencil please ask for the crayon.

Alan Bakewell plays first always no excuses :)

You may look at, but not touch, Ecca's knees. :evil: :evil: :evil:

When you are playing, for Christ's sake stand still. The repair bills for bosted kit are getting bigger. :shock: Better still sit down.

A quorum of Hankies must be completed by the inclusion of at least one Roger (3 Rogers maximum) :lol:

Feel free to offer the committee an occasional bribe / cheese cob / pint of Coors / Grolsch / Coke. :D


We Hope To see You Soon!!

Regards to all

On behalf of all The Hankies!

Great info Amanda. I'm not a 'Hankie' & never could be (crap guitarist......not false modesty!!!!). Maybe a 'Brucie' (if a song only has 2 - 4 chords in C, D or G!!!). Great Wyrely, a fair old way from here (but I used to visit the steam sheds at Bescot in days of yore!!!!!).....so I may never visit. But, I have enjoyed reading all of the posts viz: to change venue or not to change venue etc. ,etc. You guys (esp Ecca???!!) 'rock'.

Hi,

I'm shortly moving back to Walsall form France and am wondering if you are still meeting at the Saddlers Arms? There were some posts on the forum that indicated that a move to another venue was possible. Would love to come along and listen/meet Shadows fans in the area.
Can you give me amn update please on the current situation.
