VBS Blues Calendar – July 4, 2021

The big re-opening has started. Slow but steady, some things are OK but others, like dancing are still out of bounds. Please refer to provincial guidelines for the latest.

Save the dates August 1 and 15th for a special event VBS Blues jam in Sydney at Boondock’s new banquet room, 4-7pm. Door prizes and other fun will be happening. As for the resumption of our regular blues jams in Victoria, the VBS is working hard behind the scenes and will be making an announcement soon.
