SCMA Office Concert POSTPONED!
Well, just when you thought that everything was going according to plan, you find that the rug gets pulled from under you!!
We had already reserved the vacant lot across the street for concert parking and were told, and I quote "There's nothing going on down there that weekend, we'll happliy rent you the lot". Great, until we found out just this morning (Tuesday) that not only is there NOT nothing going on down there this weekend, there is an entire ROCK MUSIC FESTIVAL going on all over Deep Ellum all weekend long and the main festival grounds are set up across the street in that same unpaved parking lot! No way can we a) ask people people to wade through all that to get to us, and b) try to have the musicians compete with the high energy sound coming from across the street.
We are all pretty angry at the whole thing, but thankfully Jed and Michael understood and there really isn't much we can do about it. As soon as we can figure out who actually knows what is happening when in the area, we will reschedule.
So, please pass the news that the concert will not happen this weekend.
Security Improvements Added
Note that we now secure all the information that you transfer to the SCMA through the Services pages. You will see that the page URL is now prefixed with "https" and there is a small padlock icon before the address. We have made this change in order to protect your sensitive personal data.
Note - change of venue!
The Southwest Celtic Music Association will hold its annual election on Saturday, September 27 at 10 a.m. All current SCMA members and others interested in finding out more about the SCMA are welcome to attend. Due to the Deep Ellum concert (see SCMA Concert left) we will be holding the meeting at an alternate location. If you wish to attend, please call (214) 6740-8507 for more details.
Newly elected board members will be confirmed.
The nomination period for the 2014 election of new board members closed on August 15, 2014. Since there were only three nominations for the three vacant positions the nominations chair recommended that ballots not be mailed and that Jeane Eishen, Betsy Cummings and Floyd Harris be elected unopposed. The Board accepted this proposal.
For a complete list of current board members and officers please visit the Board page.
The SCMA offices are located at 2528 Elm Street, Dallas. We are just one block east of the I45 overpass and a block west of the intersection with Good Latimer.
Note that Elm is one way INTO downtown, so easiest access is from Good Latimer.
