With the year coming to an end, I want to take a moment to really thank our members and supporters for everything that you have participated in with the Guild in2011. Our close knit music community is one of the best in the nation, and the talent of our Songwriters and Performers makes San Diego my favorite place to live.
During 2011, I have been through the ringer, so to speak, with several medical surgeries and emergencies with my daughter, Carly, who is two years of age. As I look on toward 2012,I am realizing that these challenges are far from over. More surgeries are on the calendar, and there is a new obstacle in Carly’s recovery: Doctors “suspect” that she might be Autistic and will require therapy four days a week, in addition to everything else.
With that being said, I have decided to resign as your President, and hand the reigns over to someone who can and will guide the Guild forward. I would like to introduce, Tim Mudd (See this Video- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBCJUi2mbAY for Tim at work,)
Tim has an extensive background in Music, and we will be doing a full article on him when he starts in January. He will also be present for you to meet him in person, on January 16 during the scheduled Pitch Session with our Guest Jim Attebery. Most importantly, Tim has the technical expertise to increase the Guild’s presence in Social Media and on the web. He also has great management and communication skills.
I will continue to be part of the Guild’s team by staying on as an advisor, and assisting with event planning. SO…
I have a great event planned for all of us coming up in less than two weeks; we rented the ballroom at the Country Inn Suites on Lusk Blvd December 17th- from 4pm to 8pm. Admission is Free!
Here are the Acoustic Performers we’ve lined up:

We will also have a time for an open jam, so bring a guitar. We will provide some food and treats and there will be a cash bar for drinks. Please come out and finish out the year with us, with some good jams and good times.
Thank you all for allowing me to serve you, it has been my pleasure. Peace Out All!
