Josh was kind enough to create this forum, so I'll repost my original post over here!!!

Is it too early to start the planning on this?  Who's going, where will you be, when will you get there? 

John J. Ryan Back · 19 years, 8 months ago

I know I'll be there starting Wednesday just to get situated.  Gordon is right, the Camp Fruvous Yahoo group is also a wonderful place to talk about these issues.

I'll also keep my own website: updated with any pertinent information.

Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 19 years, 8 months ago
Thanks John. I might as well post the link to the Yahoo group on this thread too. Camp Fruvous. If its your first folk festival I high recommend it. Youi can get tips from the old timers.

barring any unforseen catastrophes or work conflicts, i'll be there wednesday night. i REFUSE to miss the showcase this year!!!

i'm also hoping to get a press pass. anyone know anything about that?

John J. Ryan Back · 19 years, 8 months ago

Actually, the new artist showcase is STILL scheduled for Friday.

And the fact that Pollstar only lists two artists for Thursday (Patty Larkin & Vance Gilbert) leads me to wonder....  Will Thursday be a full day of activity, or will it be limited to Thursday night?

As I posted on the wall, I purchased a 4 room tent, and only 2 rooms are claimed so far, if you need something let me know! There is one 'real' room and the center room left, although I might just take the center room as I don't mind people stumbling over me while I'm asleep to get to get to where they are going.

hahaha! You think you will sleep! Hahahaha!
Annika Back · 19 years, 8 months ago

Well, is sleeping and passing out drunk the same thing? If so, yes I plan to sleep.

John J. Ryan Back · 19 years, 8 months ago
Don't get too drunk, you'll want to remember all the wonderful times you'll be having.
Annika Back · 19 years, 8 months ago

Ah! I wont get too drunk. Perhaps I can bring a video camera, just in case. :^P

I'm sure I wont be a super lush

A girl named Becca Back · 19 years, 8 months ago
There's plenty of sleep in lower camp.  :P
danced with Lazlo Back · 19 years, 8 months ago
Anni will *not* be in lower camp. :P

Not that there's anything *wrong* with lower camp... but all the partying is upstairs
John J. Ryan Back · 19 years, 8 months ago
Party central baby!!!  * dances *
Annika Back · 19 years, 8 months ago

*solemn nod* yes I do party, I am a partier. A stupid stupid alcholic partier. Damn being a partier, Woohoo! Partying! Damn parties, how many more times can I say party or a variation of party before it gets really irritating to me? Hmm.. partying is fun, party party. I love to party. Okay I was sick of it a while ago, I'm just a loser, who likes to party.

Bruce Rose Back · 19 years, 8 months ago

Call to be sure, but I was told to send a letter requesting press passes on company letterhead.  References to officers is encouraged.  Be sure to include your reason and what you plan to use the pass to do.

Community radio is fun! :-)

Steve Martin · 19 years, 8 months ago
I'll be up the weekend before to 'claim space' for the budgiedome. If anyone else will be in the area that weekend we can setup then or it waits for people to arrive on Wednesday.
John J. Ryan Back · 19 years, 8 months ago
If you're planning on setting up on Saturday I'll be more than happy to make the trip up and help out.  I'm also planning on sticking around the Monday after if you need help breaking it down.
goovie is married! · 19 years, 8 months ago

emilie is CRANKY · 19 years, 8 months ago

Who's lower camping with us this year? Shelly and I should know roughly how much tent space everyone needs too so that we make sure we have enough room for everyone. :)
nate... Back · 19 years, 7 months ago
If I go.... that's where I'll be. :)
Kat Kunz Back · 19 years, 7 months ago

the katfam will be there--hotcakes and vegetarian sausage breakfasts for all!  :D  can't wait to see you guys--k.

Andrea Krause Back · 19 years, 7 months ago
Can't wait! FRFF just isn't right without the katfam. :)

We'll be lower camp so save a space for us. Um. And our scary massive tent. :)

I'll be there come hell or highwater...or a possible move to California. FRFF is a must!
Jessica · 19 years, 7 months ago
Hello all - I am new to the forum but an old MF/FRFF fan and wanted to let you know that according to the nice lady who sells tickets for FR Thursday day will be the music networking workshops, dance and family stuff but Thursday NIGHT (I think she said starting at 6pm) will be a full, headlined line-up. Friday will still be showcase and the rest will proceed as usual. She said that she has asked and is asking MF to come for the 15th anniversary but she is not optomistic that any of them will be able to break away from their current individual projects. Hope this helps you all with your planning!
John J. Ryan Back · 19 years, 7 months ago

Thanks for the info!  I think all of us are certainly under the assumption that Fruvous won't be playing this summer.

I was worried that the activities won't begin until Thursday night.  Now I can see that the main stage acts begin at 6 PM.  So far, only Patty Larkin and Vance Gilbert are confirmed for Thursday night.  I'll put this info on  Thanks!!!

Well, I came home today and found my Falcon Ridge Ticket in the mail! Woohoo! Now to just keep it in a safe place until July 23rd.  Anyway, with the ticket was a flyer with some of the performers.  Here's what it says:

"with Arlo Guthrie, Greg Brown, Dar Williams, Lucy Kaplansky, Richard Shindell, The McKrells, John Gorka, Eddie From Ohio, Patty Larkin, DaVinci's Notebook, Tom Paxton, Vance Gilbert, Holly Near, Geno Delafose & French Rockin Boogie, Nerissa & Katryna Nields, George Marshall with Wild Asparagus, The Clayfoot Strutters, Andes Manta & many others"

So it looks like DVN will be there! Yay! and The Nields (no they are always excited about being there).  I'm so excited...I want Falcon Ridge now!

My volunteer sign-up form came in the mail yesterday too - 'tis the season!

Annika Back · 19 years, 7 months ago
OOOH! Greg Brown! I haven't heard him in yeeeeeears! I'm even more excited.

"Early bird camping opens Wednesday afternoon no later than 5PM for ticketholders with prepaid camping tickets. "

Does that mean they start letting people IN no later than 5? or that you have to BE in no later than 5?
