Well, the weekend is here, the space shuttle has taken off for the last time and the News of the World will be published for the last time on Sunday.

Loads of activity and a couple of ‘last times’ going on around the world.

Lots going on in Ireland too.  Oxegen is on this weekend, loads of music for young (and not so young) happening from today until Sunday and loads happening in Cork too, with Music in the City, Damien Dempsey, Mundy, and Westlife are among the acts playing around the city over the weekend.

Closer to home in East Cork; the Medieval Festival takes place in Carraigtwohill on Saturday and Sunday and there’s a Teddy Bears’ picnic on in Fota, so plenty happening.

With all the Last Time stuff going on, it’s hard to believe that we only went ‘live’ with getting the Barony Choir organised a little over two weeks ago.  Already we’ve got over 20 members which was our original target, and now we’re aiming at 30, we’ve had our inaugural session and our website and twitter account are up and running.  We’re only one follower off our target of ’30 followers by the end of this week’, so hopefully we’ll hit the target by the end of the weekend.  We’re already working on a location and date for our next session, the first one was brilliant, and hopefully we’ll match it next time out.

On the long term planning side of things, we’ve got the Christmas party all lined up and ready to go, more on that to be announced in due course.

Nothing to report on the foreign trip yet, but we’re looking at February 2012, so lots of time to get organised there.

Anyway that’s the update for now, enjoy the weekend, and check back again soon for more updates.
