Hey all you pickers and music enjoyers out there!
It is time for the annual bluegrass gathering at the Broken Arrow Cafe and Campground the weekend after Labor Day, Sept 11-13th.
Can you believe it is the 21st year? There are so many reasons why it has been going for so long…it is so dang much fun!
So, here are the main things you can always expect:
Check in with Dell Scott when you arrive to get parked and set up. Minimal charge for camping.
The cafe is open every evening, and will also be open Saturday morning for us music campers. Yum, double yum……breakfast, salsa and chips, great Mexican food, and of course RoseMarie’s unbelievable homemade pies…….oh my….
Saturday @ 1pm is the Ice Cream Social! Please bring something that tastes good on ice cream to donate. And…… because everyone brings great goodies, we have the best ice cream social in at least five counties. More yum.
Then, we need to pick like crazy all afternoon to wear off the ice cream so we can get ready for the 6pm potluck Sat night.
Expect the picking to continue into the night….playing in the cafe…..wall tents….friends…..late nights and crisp mornings around the group campfire……more picking……more friends……
The 10am Sun morning potluck leads right into gospel until noon. Then….picking continues…..some folks feast at the Broken Arrow again before heading home late in the afternoon……everyone always hates to see the weekend end. This year is also special because Dale Ann Bradley will keep the bluegrass going Sun night in Missoula. Wow – thanks Ruby Jewel Jamboree!
The Broken Arrow Cafe is located at Gibbonsville, ID, and is 14 miles from the top of Lost Trail Pass, and 32 miles north of Salmon. Always watch for animals and rocks in this part of the country! Folks start arriving mid-week, so get here safely so the fun can begin.
For any questions about camping and the available cabins, call the Broken Arrow Cafe @ 208-865-2241.
Can’t wait to see you there! Feel free to forward this to pickers that may have been missed –
Safe travels to you —
