Just a reminder too- we will have Laurent Dubois speaking on his work on "Musical Passages- the Earliest Sounds of the Banjo." Kinney Rorer will also discuss Charlie Poole's banjo playing & legendary bluegrass banjo player Eddie Adcock (along with wife Martha & bassist Tom Gray) will be performing Sat. Evening with Eddie hosting a "conversation" that afternoon. Fri. @ 4 the inimitable James Pentecost will be providing bones lessons on the porch of the Clover Hill Tavern; the 1st sure to be annual "Gourd Gathering" at the Grave of Old Joe himself. And now I hear talk of ham, johnny cakes & sweet potatoes!!!! A good time to be had by all!
I'll be dining mostly at Subway, but something like this looks good for breakfast. Can those of us who are not camping get into the park before 9 am?
Scott- Yes! Like last year, those who will be attending the Convergence can park at the Isbell house. Those folks camping in period camping will have first dibs yhere for their overrnight parking needs but I will be sure to in for! As to any other availability. We can start letting folks park in the min lot at approx. 8am.
With the promise of food like this, you are sure to draw a crowd. I've already booked a motel room, so will not be camping. But I would work for food by helping with food prep etc. Also would chip in some $ to help of set the cost of the food.
We could all agree to bring our own plate/bowl/cup/utensils/napkins, and each take our own stuff away when done eating- large contra dance potlucks often do that to avoid having garbage and cleanup- everyone is in charge of bringing and cleaning up after their own place setting.
Is there a water supply or spigot next to the camping area for folks to get water to wash their plates or cups etc?
Of course all this eating means there'd also likely be a bag of garbage to hide and then take away- Dave is there a good place or way to make the garbage bag 'disappear to' ...say on Sat at least.. so we don't accumulate or have to hide a garbage bag containing meal refuse all the way til sunday?
There an outdoor spigot in the Kelley field where camping will be. There will be a trash can in the vicinity too!
