Here's the latest Bluegrass Jam email from Ward (from last week -- similar sentiments this week).
Begin forwarded message:

From: alfolk@aol.com
Subject: Tonight's jam is still on
Date: January 16, 2017 11:52:21 AM EST

Hi everyone...

I got back late from Epcot and forgot to remind you about our upcoming Boba experience until now.  While turnout has been good, there are a lot of good people (musical skill is secondary) that we've missed.  If that strikes a chord with you, I hope tonight is a possibility.
