The Vol 18, No 4 issue of the Rhythm Bones Player newsletter titled "Reflections on 20 Years of Bones Fests" is in the mail. A similar newsletter was done after the first 10 Bones Fests edited by Sharon Mescher, and she again edits this issue in grand style. These two newsletter briefly summarize each Bones Fest with brief highlights, photographs of the host, Fest graphic and a few photos. The first one is now on our website (click HERE to read it), and the latest one has been mailed to current members (the paper version of the newsletter is a membership benefit, and is placed on our website two years after it was issued).
The daughter of the late Clif Ervin (with help from Scott Miller) donated a box of his rhythm bones to RBS and asked us to do something nice with them. They are unique and it would have been nice if we had some place to display them. At the Board meeting at the recent Bones Fest, the idea of an Online RBS Museum to display them was discussed, and we are happy to announce that a prototype Museum has been implemented and can be viewed by clicking HERE.
Please note that this is a working version of the Museum which will have more content and will later work with smartphones (for now try it by viewing horizontally). In general, when you click a photograph you will see one or more related photographs (now more likely just one), and when you click inside the text box you can read more about the item.
With that in mind you are invited to submit items to add to the museum by sending one or more photographs and a description (it will be edited if needed) which will become the museum text. Items must have historical rhythm bones significance, and the Board will determine what items are added to the museum. Help us make this a Museum people want to visit again and again.
