Hey David, Norm here. Sorry took so long to respond, I do not surf here near often enough, too much going on, sailing season has just ended and now I make time for these things. I play all manner of percussion, from a full kit all the way down to bongos and everything, and I mean everything, in between. As for jamming, here is a great place, we have 9 foot ceilings in the basement, a hydro plug every 6 feet and a Very Understanding Wife!
Midland ain't far and it's a pain to lug all that drum shit around. LMK.
As for starting a central Ontario club, I have been floating the idea around Midland for the last year, more actually, and the shame of it is that everyone wants to be a PH during Party on the Dock, very few the rest of the year. I will keep trying but you need a minimum of 20 people signed up to get the ball rolling. It'd be easier to have a TMRPHC North Chapter instead. Let's talk. Be well. Fins Up.
