IN THE SOCIETY:
$10 per Person or $15 per Family (half-price
after June 30) makes you one of us. This allows you to come
to all our meetings , join in our music, play in our gigs, and eat our
snacks for the rest of the calendar year. You also get
monthly issues of our incredibly entertaining and
informative newsletter, THE BUCKHORN. Finally you get the
opportunity to share music with us at almost any level that
suits your talents and inclinations. If performing isn't
your thing, you get the opportunity to listen to many others
who would love to play for you.
If you're interested in joining us, you can
contact our Treasurer (see below) to make arrangements, or
just drop in at one of our monthly meetings and bring your
wallet. Of course, you're always welcome to
attend a meeting as our guest, just to see if what we do is
for you, but if you decide to visit more than once or twice,
we ask you to ante up.

who keep the organization going. Feel free to contact them
with any questions or concerns.
