The best person to arrange local classes is YOU. Have you counted the
cities in the USA... think what an administrative nightmare organizing
such classes would be for a volunteer organization.
Grants and Harmonica Subsidies.? All monies for the good works which SPAH
does ( usually in the field of education which is where the future lays)
come from member's yearly membership fees.
Quite a bit of my time as Pres of SPAH goes to pointing people to good
traders, or clubs where they can get a good deal. We get nothing back.
As a matter of interest... are YOU a member? :)) 95% or more of all the
requests for info which I answer result in (a) no email of thanks and a
lack of interest in joining the organization which helped.
There ain't no such thing as a free lunch. The more people who support
organizations such as SPAH and buy magazines such as The Harmonica Educator
and American Harmonica Newsmagazine, or join clubs, the more the things you
want can happen.
All clubs, magazines etc are run by a very few dedicated people who give
freely of their time... none make any money out of it. Guard these
resources by joining and buying etc.
OK... having given the lecture ... :)) How would you go about getting
funds together or organizing such a fund gathering and distribution
network Scorcher?? Seriously.
President ... SPAH
