2020 – Oncle Hoonki’s Fabulous Stats – a year in review

Here is a link advertising our MacLean Park music series for last season. If you have a chance, please give a robust thank-you to Alan Zisman, creator, show-host and band-wrangler of this very successful series that brought much happiness to beleaguered Strathconians during hard times.
You are always welcome to visit Oncle Hoonki’s Fabulous Hornshop Facebook page, where photos and updates happen in near real time.

These stats do not include personal hours of fuhorn building, the main creative project by yours truly, MacLean Park Fieldhouse Steward, Mr. Fire-D-Man, as they number in the thousands, and reveal exactly why my RMT exclaimed, ‘These are not muscles, they are rocks!’ For many tasty photos, you can always search the hashtags #fuhorns, #onclehoonkis
