Well, curiosity got the best of me so i took a drive to Galax, Cool Breeze Campground was full of Airetreams yesterday. I drove up just to check it out. August 10, 2013. Lots of nice trailers! Fiddlers festival was really cranking this year. It's just a few miles down the road and really easy to get to from Cool Breeze Campground. A word of advice, if you ever pull a trailer down there do yourself a favor and drive down interstate 77. If you go thru flatridge (road going thru Mt. Rogers/ Grayson) you will have a heck of a drive with a trailer. Flatridge is miles and miles of switchbacks. Beautiful country to see though. So, it looks like this rally, unofficially, is still running stong.

izzyashdown - We had a GREAT time at the Region 3 Galax Fiddlers Convention rally, camping in the Cool Breeze CG. About 48 rigs as some of us came and went during the week. Glad you came to visit.

We see a picture of what appears to be an Airstream involved in the 40+ vehicle pile up at MP 197 on I-81. Is that anyone we know from the Galax Rally or elsewhere? Who has news?

The accident was in the southbound lane near Lexington, VA. That is north of Galax, so should not affect anyone who was at Galax

Right, Jay, and it wasn't until long after I posted that I understood it was Southbound. A tragedy all around.

The 2013 Galax Fiddler's Rally is over and we had a great time with 45 rigs registered. Most came for all wek, but some just for part of the week. The rally fee was pro-rated based on how much of the rally you were present. We had concerts at the campground by the JAM youth musicians, another by Wayne Henderson and friends, a visit to Wayne's shop an museum, and another concert by Gerald Anderson. Also had jam sessions most every afternoon. The rally actually showed a profit of $250 which was donated to the Junior Appalachian Musicians.

The rally will be held again next year, sponsored by Region 3, at the same campground and you may make your reservations now. Just call Robert Sells 866-342-3200, and tell him you want to attend the rally. He does not charge a deposit and you may pay your rally fee when you arrive. I don't know the exact dates yet, but it is always the first week in August. We will try to schedule concerts near the end of the week if we can so weekend folks will be able to enjoy them.

The weather was such that we never turned on the air conditioner!

Come and join us next year
