Sounds great. Haven't been in that area for 30 + years. What are the pet rules?

Pet Rules

At my campsite .....pets rule

But at the festival, dogs ( and banjo players ) should be on a leash, or at least supervised and away from food and concert areas.

Lease is great. The dog's don't mind either. Think I'll ask the boss. It is alot closer than the international and you have to have better food and entertainment. Fact maybe you guys are what the club needs.

"What the Club needs"

I'm not sure it's what the club needs, but if you like to have fun and want a weekend to rememeber , it fits the bill. We have room for people to camp together, a quiet section, a party section, and some electric sites.

Now that Bluegrass season is in full swing, do you have a schedule where you and your band play? Do you ever get to Arkansas? What kind of Mandolin to you play? How many are in your band? We are looking forward to you playing at our campsite.

Hey BD
I am in a band of hundreds, called the Grillbillies. We are a bluegrass camping
club. We "tour" around PA, NY, MD, VA, DE, NJ. We have a schedule on this site
http://www.grillbillies.com/
There are 3 or 4 festivals a weekend around here. They are great if you like to go to sleep to the sound of music, and like to sleep late. Let me know if you are coming
east. My Yankee mandolin wants to hear an ARKINSAW mandolin
