We’re all looking forward to this enourmous music event coming up in Butte on July 11-13, 2008 (see http://www.nationalfolkfestival.com/).
I have written to the Executive Director of this event requesting help in locating a place where all of the MRBA members can camp together so that we can have a good parking lot picking scene. He would love to have us there but hasn’t been able to help us find a place where we can all camp together. This is really what we need if we’re going to play any music together.
Charlene has a lead on a possible place where we can all camp in the same spot. I’ll keep you posted here if hear anything else about that.
The entire festival is free and there will be free shuttle buses running form Missoula and Gt Falls (and maybe other towns). I heard that Michael Marsalek at KUFM in Missoula is organizing the Missoula bus. Not sure who to contact in Gt falls.
