I just got off the phone with a fellow busnut who is going to be there on Thursday. I'll let him post if he wants it public  ;D
I can assure you that there will be some GREAT discussions with him there  ;D  8)  :o

Who??  Out the sucker!  ;)    Thursday is 'jam' day.  No professional entertainment.   We'll be there on Thursday.  Tell the unknown guy to look us'ns up!   Big bus....gold you know.
Friday will have Nothin' Fancy, and Saturday features Rhonda Vincent.   These are 'plugged in' bands.  Anyone that enjoys country rock, or Nitty Gritty Dirt Band would enjoy both Vincent and Nothin' Fancy.  It ain't your grandpaw's music! 
I don't care for standard bluegrass.  I'm into progressive electric music played with bluegrass intruments.   There's not much market left for old styled bluegrass.
I'll tell you another thingy, if Rhonda Vincent couldn't sing a note, the guys would still sit out in the heat are watch her try!  She ain't too hard on the eyes!   ::)  8)  :o  ;D
Nothin' Fancy is a fun band to watch.  They are wide open...and entertaining. 
There will be a few standards at the festival on Friday and Saturday.  Bands I'm not familiar with. 
We were at Laurel Lakes July 4th festival last year and the unknown bands were fabulous.  Best show!
Well, hope y'all have fun on the 4th! 
I've talked to Anita and John and the bango picker and they're all up for a little October Palmetto Cove picking!

Aren't Cat and Dallas still up in Ohio?   They were supposed to come down to NC for a bit, but haven't seen them?

Looks like there is a strong posibility of having one of our own bring a smoker to cook us some BBQ  ;D  8)

I can get the meat, Who wants to volunteer for some sauce & sides?

We can also set up for donations for those who want to help in that way. .  .   .   .

So if you can post here or PM me so we can work out the details. ;D

See 'ya there  ;D

Kyle , we will need sides, sauces, (maybe some of the folks have something homemade they would like to share) sides, paper plates, sides, utensils, sides, maybe we can get folks to sponser a butt (boston butt) or something, I am bringing the cooker, wood, seasonings, and such. I will also have my banjo with me, I play a little old time clawhammer.

Yup,

We're still up in Ohio and have a couple of jobs that we can't leave.

I wish we could make it down to see everybody again, but sadly that is just not to be this time.

You guys and gals all have a great at the gathering, tip a couple cold ones for Cat and I and sing us a song or two!

Looks like everyone had a good time.  Hope there is a good turnout for the October gathering.  You may get lucky and actually have 2 Fishbowls show up!

Crap!   >:(   So ya'll ate all the BBQ?   ??? >:( :( :o  So as Gary says, I missed it!   
I had some of Charles BBQ last year.....mmmmmmm good! ;D
Hope Charles can make the trip for the October Non-Rally.  We've got the Non-Rally on the calendar!
July the 4th is a busy weekend...for most people.   I was preparing for a bus'n trip last weekend...preparing is complicated...gotta pull the bus out of the barn...inventory the adult beverages...check the fridge for perfect temp...inventory the adult beverages...you get the picture.  Sometimes there's the necessary 'quality check' thing related to the adult beverages...sometimes.   Not always.  NCBob know what I mean?  ;)
We're looking forward to the October Non-Rally.  Got Anita and John coming up Saturday evening to make a little music.   
Now if we could get Gene Lewis, Darrell Passer, Dave Lang, and Charles together in October....whatta feed that would make! 
We were out bus'n this last weekend...dry camping.  Dry camping in July, with temps in the mid 90's and diesel fuel at almost $5 bucks a gallon ain't the best of ideas.  Nights were nice.
We just stayed outside most of the time during the day.     
The camper next to us ran his fuel tank bone dry running his generator....sucker ran out of fuel and quit on Saturday night.   Almost too quiet without it.   He was making $4 dollar an hour 'white noise' for us.  The guy apparently was desperate for cold because when his genst shut off, he started the chassis engine and ran the dash air...I told him that the genset wouldn't drain the tank...the 454 did.  Now that's poor planning.  Oh well.     
The festival was great otherwise....Rhonda Vincent was in good form...she's always in 'good form'... if you get the picture!  ;)   
Looking forward to October!  Who's coming?  :)  Dallas? What about you and Cat?  About time to visit the South again!

Hey Buddydog, Fishbowls rule! Anything else is not really a bus by my judgement.
