RE: [nwbluegrass] Re: Fruitland Picking
- Thanks Joe,
Of course I was being tongue in cheek with the "725" reminders comment.
It is interesting to read that many of our listers seem to think the season
is over for bluegrass events while we are getting fairly constant reminders
of at least one event.
Perhaps, we could figure out a way to have a group notification of all of
the events coming up in the next month in the form of a "events"
announcement? Much like the calendar on the OBA website.
That way, instead of 20 announcements about each single event..which could
lead to several hundred announcements if everyone did it..would be easier to
Of course, since I am a personal fan of the Tygh Valley BG festival, I
wouldn't mind twenty reminders about that event.. but still. Sisters Folk
Festival, Moograss, and others might benefit from all of us knowing they are
on the horizon..when they are.

I have set up Nwbluegrass links to OBA, WBA, INBA, IBA, and a few other
organizations. That would be totally great if you'd be willing to
compile a monthly events notification from those locations and then
post it to nwbluegrass. It would be a great way to stay informed and
Another real helpful thing would be to encourage event promoters to
just join Nwbluegrass. That way, they could take advantage of this
forum to keep all 896 of us informed with the latest breaking news
about their festivals.
