The NESI Mailing List ~ sitalk
si-talk (actually sitalk without the hyphen) is for
everybody to talk about the Squeeze-In matters amongst
themselves: what to expect, ride-sharing requests, posting
workshop requests for something you're interested in or, conversely, to
get feedback on a possible workshop you're thinking of holding.
The URL (web address) for this group is:

To keep out trolls and spammers, you will be asked to answer a
few really, really basic questions about free-reed instruments (which
only us free-reed maniacs will know, thus screening out the spammers).
will be lightly moderated.

I ask you all: Participate in sitalk as if you were among friends. If
you're a beginner, understand that even the "dumbest" question
will be respectfully heard and answered; after all, there are
no dumb questions, we all were beginners once and we had a lot of
help along the way. If you're advanced, listen and learn at
least as much (or more) as you speak and talk, and, of course,
lend a helping hand.
many messages you might get from these mailing list (If you're
worried about whether they might seem like a wave of spam)
Most of the year there may be one or two postings a month. In the
month leading up to NESI, there may be as many as 2-5 emails a day....
- as people ask if there's someone that will hold a workshop in something they're interested in, or need help with
- as people respond to such requests
- as others suggest workshops they might hold and post sheet music or background info for it
- as people ask for rides and others offer them
- newcomers asking what it's like or whether they can get help with something specific with their music
