2020 Acoustic Routes AGM – still on at Level 2

3.00pm, Sunday 16 August

The Third Eye, 30 Arthur Street, Te Aro.

We would love as many of you as possible to come to the AGM and tell us what you want from the club. Please come early, or at least on time(!!) so we can spend less time waiting for a quorum, and more time making music together afterwards.

Food available and singaround afterwards.
