Why call it “UpBay”? http://artvallejo.org/why-call-vallejo-upbay/ Sun, 15 Mar 2015 16:27:42 +0000 http://artvallejo.org/?p=14261 Jack London on the RoamerWhy are a bunch of hipsters branding Vallejo “UpBay”? Many Vallejoans grew up calling it “Northbay”, yet news media and outfits like Craigslist lump Vallejo in with the Eastbay. “Northbay” means Marin in popular usage, and “Eastbay” means Berkeley-Oakland-Richmond. “Northeast Bay” is more accurate, but too wordy to catch on, so we borrowed an old sailing term: UpBay.

Sailing upBay is like sailing upstream, only up a bay.  Sailors bound for Vallejo said they were going “up Bay”.

 San Francisco Bay Area Water TrailAnd once a sailor, always a sailor. The savor of the salt never stales. The sailor never grows so old that he does not care to go back for one more wrestling bout with wind and wave. I know of it myself. I have turned rancher, and live beyond sight of the sea. Yet I can stay away from it only so long. After several months have passed, I begin to grow restless. I find myself day-dreaming over incidents of the last cruise, or wondering if the striped bass are running on Wingo Slough, or eagerly reading the newspapers for reports of the first northern flights of ducks. And then, suddenly, there is a hurried packing of suit-cases and overhauling of gear, and we are off for Vallejo where the little Roamer lies, waiting, always waiting, for the skiff to come alongside, for the lighting of the fire in the galley-stove, for the pulling off of gaskets, the singing up of the mainsail, and the rat-tat-tat of the reef-points, for the heaving short and the breaking out, and for the twirling of the wheel as she fills away and heads up Bay or down.

Jack London, from The Joy of Small-Boat Sailing

Cleven Goodie Goudeau Many people don’t know how much of an Icon
Goodie really is
He’s not gone but just transcends
He transformed this art movement
In a world that is so deep rooted in hate
And gave so many of us
Not only a vision but a platform
And showed us not only how to build but create
I will never forget his words to me
He said “it doesn’t matter what other people say
What do you believe?”
He said “That is the difference between setting goals
And what you can and will achieve.”
All the long hours at the Gallery
And many of us did not know he was in pain
He always asked what he could do to help
And never shed a tear nor complained
So don’t think of him as a was because He Is.
And for that I Thank You.

– Elaine Brown

In Memoriam ~ Cleven “Goodie” Goudeau
January 15, 1932- January 26, 2015

The VCS, or as it was originally called the Vallejo Municipal Chorus, gave its first performance on December 9, 1917 in San Francisco in a joint concert with the San Francisco Municipal Orchestra.

VCS continues to play a vital role in musical life of the Solano County, attracting new singers from as far as Vacaville, Berkeley and Castro Valley. One of the most memorable events in the choir’s recent history was performance of Beethoven’s Mass in C Major in Fairfield and Vacaville with the Solano Community Symphony during the 2004 Christmas Season. With the group’s membership growing steadily during the past several seasons and performances in front of the capacity filled halls, the future of VCS is brimming with promise and excitement in anticipation of the choir’s quickly approaching Centennial Anniversary!
