MAKE PLANS NOW TO ATTEND FSFA’s ANNUAL CONVENTION! OCTOBER 13-15, 2017 at SERTOMA YOUTH RANCH, BROOKSVILLE, FL!
FSFA’s Annual Convention is held in October each year, and features guest artists, workshops, concerts, camping, jamming, dancing and a stringband contest.
The 2017 Special Guest Artist will be Virginia fiddler Eddie Bond of the New Ballards Branch Bogtrotters.
Adults: members $30, non members – $45, children under 16 – $5 for Saturday only.
MEALS: Friday night features a potluck meal at the pavilion (main stage.) Bring something to share, meet and greet. FSFA will provide the main meat, paper products & utensils. Saturday night dinner is “on your own”.
A note about the String Band Contest on Saturday: this is a fun event, and pick-up bands are encouraged. Hook up with some other pickers, form a band, work up a couple of tunes and join the fun! A registration table will be set up Saturday morning for contest entry. The entry fee (the best part) is a home-made pie! Last place bands get first pick of the pies, and so on. Top three winning bands will receive ribbons. So bring your pies, bring your tunes, and let’s have some fun! After the contest, everyone please join us at our annual Tea Party, to be held at the main Pavilion. Bring an appetizer to share if you like, and bring your favorite “tea”. Ties for the men (be creative) and hats for the ladies, please. This is just social time, and there will be a group photo. All are invited, so please come!
