Greg and I would like to invite you to join us for our “Bowed Psaltery Christmas Gathering”, (BPCG). This year we
will be gathering in a virtual setting using a system called Zoom.. More about that to follow.. All times listed are for
Eastern Standard Time Zone, (EST). The Gathering will start out on Friday, December 11th at 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.
m., as a visit time. Come say hello, meet the instructors, see friends you haven’t seen this year, get help figuring out
what you are doing. Then we will have 3 one hour sessions, a dinner break and end the day with an “Open Mic”.

you would like to take and use the worksheet.
There is a maximum of 30 participants per class
so if your first choice is full you would use your second choice.
We will open the website for registering for your classes
on a specific date and time to be announced
There will be several classes offered per session and you will have to pick which ones you want to take. There is a
worksheet below you can print to help you list your first and second choices
How this will work:
You must have either a laptop computer, a desktop computer or a mobile device. You need to have audio and
video capabilities to participate in these virtual events. Zoom is a video communications company that provides a
service to allow us to have virtual events and to be able to see and hear each other from all around the world. This
is just amazing and so easy to use. First thing you have to do is do a “Speed test”. This will tell you if you have
enough speed between your internet provider and your equipment. Zoom suggests that you have at least 1.5 Mbps
Now that you have the equipment and your speed up to what you need you will need to download Zoom.
Zoom is free for the basic service and you do not need an account, but I have found it to be easier to
navigate in Zoom with an account.

Zoom and to help you understand and navigate their site
