    I signed up - attended one back at the Int'l Bluegrass Museum in 2009 I believe and I think I might actually be ready this time. Looks really cool.

    The good Lord willin' and the creek don't rise, I'll be back for my 5th one. It's my favorite music event of the year. There's a good number of us that have been to at least half of them (John has been to all of them!) so it's really a reunion of kindred musical spirits enhanced by meeting new folks that come. It's a very laid back and welcoming group of folks. Plenty of fine musicians as well!

    I am really wringing my hands over this one. Money and time are both short this year, and while I'll have money next year, I'll have no time. What's an obsessed mandolin player to do?? I'll probably go

    I'll be attending. I haven't registered yet though. Wow. I can't believe so many are attending. I'm hoping to learn a lot! A guy in our Monday night jam spoke very highly of the camp. I'm glad to hear its welcoming! Seems like a very experienced lot of pickers.

    I just signed up. This will be my fourth Monroe camp. I missed the last two years when I attended a couple other camps. I'm looking forward to attending this one again.

    Several dozen have signed up so far in the first week-folks from Canada, Washington State, Connecticut, Texas, California, Kansas, Tennessee, Alabama, Illinois, Missouri, New York, South Carolina, Ohio, Alabama, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Michigan, and Kentucky. Looks like some new folks, some folks who haven't been for a few years, some folks who come every year...university students and some youth are also represented!

    We look forward to having you at camp this year! Great group of folks attend, and the setting is perfect for those never-ending jams around the camp-fire or in an wood room with great acoustics.

    Look forward to having you at camp! Under the FAQs section of the webpage (http://www.monroemandolincamp.com) there is a list of tunes/songs to be used during the slow jam classes. Camp jam tune will be "Monroe's Hornpipe". See you in a few months!

    Kevin-Looking forward to having you at camp this year. It's truly a unique experience to be able to have complete immersion on the culture, the music, the techniques...and to have the support of other like-minded Monroephiles. An experience which will propel your understanding and playing. See you in a few months. (http://www.monroemandolincamp.com)

    It's definitely a great group of players! We look forward to having you at camp this year. You can register via the webpage: http://www.monroemandolincamp.com. Complete immersion into the history, culture, and music of Bill Monroe, in a beautiful outdoor setting, catered delicious food, and a group of Monroephiles and like minded folk. It's going to be a great time! See you in a few months.

    Really want to come! It conflicts with my Uncle and Aunt's 50th wedding anniversary in New York though. If I have to fly that distance from Alaska, I sure would rather come to camp!! I don't have to attend the celebration, but I sure would not be the family favorite if I snubbed them and went to camp instead. Better wait till next year!!
