At the September meeting, we decided that it’s time for an extended get together to focus on maintaining your set and doing some of the work that often gets put off. To that end, Tom Quinn, our current Chairman, has offered to host a workshop at his place on Whidbey Island. We’ll convene on Saturday, Oct. 8 at 10 o’clock. Phil White will be on hand to help with reed adjustment, and there will be tools and materials available. If you’d like to make a wooden box- type case we could do that also. There will be a session in the evening after dinner. If you’d like to stay over, let Tom know. There is floor space and room outside to pitch a tent if that is more to your liking. Please contact Tom Quinn if you are interested in attending and for further information. Tom’s Place is located at: 8109 Autumn Lane, Clinton, WA (Located in Sandy Cove, a few miles from the ferry landing) Tom’s cell is: 425-864-0993 or e-mail: email@example.com Let us know if you need anything in particular. Should be fun, and hope you can make it!

Greetings Pipers and friends,
October is upon us and it’s time for a club meeting.
Tom Creegan has generously offered his home as the meeting spot.
My apologies for the late notice, but my best intentions have lead me once again to the road to a place I’ve been before…
The Place: 8726 25th Ave. NW
The time: 2:00 – 5:00
The: reason: Looks like a rainy Sunday afternoon, and what better way to spend it than with the IPC
Bring your pipes, a snack to share, and something to drink and we’ll carry on in our usual (unusual) form! Hope you can make it, and once again my apologies for the last minute reminder.
‘We’ll have an Irish Pipers’ Meeting this
Sunday afternoon in the newly remodeled confines of Murphy’s Pub in Wallingford. (corner of 45th & Meridian Ave.)
We realize that this is the
Sunday before St. Patrick’s, but hope you can make it out to meet up and help us make some plans for the coming months and re-connect.
Plan B: If it turns out the pub is too busy or not really suitable we can change venues to my house which is just a couple blocks away (4523 Corliss
Hope to see you there and all the best for St. Patrick’s!
If you haven’t made it to a meeting lately, it is time to reconnect, play a few tunes, talk reeds and pipes, and make some plans for the future.
Where: Rod’s house in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle
When: Sunday Dec. 14 from 2 – 5 pm.
Why: Because it’s time!
Bring your pipes, a beverage or two, and some snacks to share if you’d like.
All the best for the upcoming Holiday season!
With the end of summer approaching, it’s time to reconvene the Club and re-establish contact with many of you. To that end, the committee has planned an event to get you out for a night of music in the Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle.
Our Vice Chairman, Phil White, has arranged for us to take the stage at the Ould Triangle, as an alternative to our usual monthly meeting. Please plan to come, bring your pipes to share a few favorite tunes, and invite other musicians to join you as well. Everyone is welcome!
Music begins at 9:00 but come early to socialize a bit and re-connect with other members of the club. This year we’d like to try some variations to the regular Sunday afternoon meetings, and would love increase attendance at IPC events. But especially, we would like to see you there, because it has been awhile!
Hope to see you SATURDAY night at the
9736 Greenwood Ave. N.
Cheers and all the best,
Tom Quinn, Chairman
Phil White, Vice Chairman
Rod Margason, Treasurer

spring has come at last, and we’re ready to move on from warm memories of the recent Tionól to preparing for the club’s annual outing at the Northwest Folklife Festival on Saturday, May 24th at 11.00 AM.
In the meantime it is high time to elect and appoint a new committee. Despite our best efforts at the meeting last October, billed as the AGM, the attendance was deemed insufficient to conduct the necessary election of the committee that day.
So, please do come along on April 13 and make your voice heard.
The Meeting will be held at the welcoming home of Ken Klettke in West Seattle.
