Midwest Banjo Camp...and I'm missing it

Posted by Kevin G on Saturday, June 4, 2011

Midwest Banjo Camp is happening in Olivet, Michigan this weekend, and I'm missing it. I went last year for the first time, and I loved it. So why am I not there? A better event: Our daughter's 21st birthday.

How often does your kid turn 21? To be honest, it was a tougher call than it probably should have been, but that's just a statement about how great the camp was. I started Clawhammer there last year in the beginners' track, and tried hard to get the right hand stroke down during that weekend. The beginning CH instructor, Terri McMurray, was outstanding--friendly and patient. So I was looking forward to my second trip there, and when I saw the schedule, I was sad.

But: How often does your daughter turn 21? So although I'm a little sorry I'm not there, I'm glad to be home this weekend with my family, celebrating a major family milestone. So I'll just get my banjo out, light a candle, and have the free home version of the Midwest Banjo camp. And I'll have a glass of champagne with my daughter.

It's a shame that the two dates had to clash, Kevin! I hope you can get to another event soon!

Sounds like a solid plan, to me!
