Hi Everyone ,
I realised this morning that if things were normal today would have been our Christmas meeting. Christmas songs, mince pies and probably a guitar in the raffle - how sad.
I do hope things improve soon.
It has not been a good year to look back on and has provided the biggest social upheaval any of us would ever have experienced. Also let’s not forget the sad loss of Brian “Licorice” Locking who has visited our club probably every year since we began. Brian would without a second thought encourage musicians of all levels and he was without doubt the best ambassador for “Shadows” music we’ll probably ever see. I can still hear his unmistakable harmonica sound when I think of him. He will be sadly missed.
Anyway let’s look to the future, we have a number of vaccines soon to become available and with a bit of luck we might actually see some normality during next year.
I can’t wait for us to start the club meetings again and catch up with each other.
Let’s hope 2021 will mark a new beginning and we can look forward to happier times again.
Let me and on behalf of the committee wish everyone a happy Christmas and new year.
P.S we have uploaded some nostalgic videos onto the front page of the clubs website https://warwickshadowsguitarclub.com/ to hopefully evoke some happy memories of Christmas meeting from the past.

Just a quick note to keep you abreast of the situation regarding WSGC in relation to
the Covid-19 pandemic.
Earlier today The Committee had a Zoom meeting with a view to considering the arrangements going forward. Two things were decided.
1. The membership fees already paid for 2020 will be transferred to 2021.( i.e. 2020 will be written off)
2. Due to the frequent changes in the regulations surrounding the virus, the possibility of an upturn in cases as we approach winter, and the particular issues of running the club safely, it has been decided that there will be no more scheduled meetings this year. It is the committee’s intention that the club will recommence in the early part of 2021, at a date to be advised subject to the prevailing government guide lines at the time
We hope you will understand the reasons for these decisions, equally we understand that some members are very keen to get back to normal, but please be assured that we will return to Whitnash, to “ keep the sound alive “ just as soon as it safe and practical to do so.
The WSGC Committee.
There's a new page , for videos by club members that might like to while away a few hours by creating home grown videos , thereby keeping the creative juices flowing . For more information contact us at email@example.com
I’m sure you won’t be entirely surprised that, due to the unfolding coronavirus epidemic, the committee has decided that all meetings will be cancelled until further notice
We are sorry if this is a disappointment to you , but are sure that due to the unprecedented circumstances you will understand the reasons for the decision.
We can assure that as soon as the emergency is over we will resume the meetings as soon as possible , and will advise you by email and the website.
In the meantime take care and we will see you as soon as possible .

Re Warwick Shadows Guitar Club Twenty Years Celebration,
I am always delighted to hear good news like this!
It still warms my heart that there are clubs like yours all over the world
still keeping the music alive after all this time.
Pass on my good wishes to all the guys (and maybe girls)
and tell them I am having a wee glass of wine or two today as I am
sending this to you all
on the 5th October 61 years since we started this incredible journey!!
My best to you all,
Bruce Welch OBE ‘The Shads.’
