2008 MRBA party at Forrest Flatts

We have set the date for the associations’ 2008 annual party.

Date: Aug 8-10, 2008

Location: Forrest Flatts in Turah (take the Turah exit and look for the signs)

This year the association will provide the steaks.  Dinner will be a potluck. I think. Please post your comments here if this isn’t right.

Like last year, we’ll have some great giveaways.  This is our big party of the year and a great time to get to know your fellow members and enjoy the rewards of membership in the Montana Rockies Bluegrass Association.

Garrison Junction campout a big time

Curtis and I just got back from a great 36 hours of pickin’ and camping with a great bunch down at Garrison Jct. It was great to see old faces again, like our friend Jeff Trask, and to see several new faces including Derek (guitar) and John (dobro) from Helena.

The potluck was great and the weather was perfect.

I especially enjoyed seeing and visiting with our friends Teresa and Gary Kent from Thompson Falls. It was nice to hear all the great music coming out of one of Casey’s guitars.

I mentioned this “MRBA blog” to some of you there. Hopefully you found it and will join in the online conversation with your comments and pictures.

Jerry told me that his real true love instrument is the dobro. Jerry I hope you’ll check out the beautiful new Wechter-Scheerhorn down at http://www.gregboyd.com.

take care,
