Katie and Sara show off their tuning skillz on Alison's 1970's Adamas and her OFC 1.




Then they play a local 3 string instrument called the Django.




Iffy plays the longneck 6. Next to him is Kristin, a local young lady with a tremendous singing voice.




Karen playing bass. She also sang us a beautiful original song on her Ovation. The top on her guitar is a gorgeously aged caramel color.




Terry is a local with a great sense of humor. Here he sings a song about eating health food...




Dusty and Jarret are local high school boys who jammed with us. The other musician is, if I heard correctly, a tourist who dropped in for the day and hung out. He did a very nice duet with Katie on James Taylor's Fire and Rain.

Terry came in at lunch and apologized for being muddy, having been "digging in the dirt all morning". Katie, not missing a beat, replied, "What a coincidence, I've been playing banjo all morning".



CrimsonLakes' sons in the background.




Dustin, a local, tears it up on a Hamer.




The kids headed outside in the evening while the adults continued inside the shop.

Elginacres brought original slothead #43. In an incredible display of generosity we all got a chance to experience playing it.









Craig Carothers put on a songwriting workshop on Saturday, followed by a concert at the local bookstore that evening. Great guy, great songwriter, great performer.

Here are some of the OFC members in front of one of the cabins, L to R, Steve (Crimson Lake), Johnny (2ifbyC), Brad (professorbb), Stephen (StephenT), Mark (in Boise) and Mark (elginacres). Johnny has the best legs, but he lives in Florida and his tan really helped.

Johnny,

I'm glad you didn't try to climb up to get a closer shot of the goat. :D

Is this at my end or are there a lot of missing pictures and links to the jam book pages? Please fix if possible.

I will try to attach a PDF of the Jam Book... I won't know until after the post is posted if it works.

Here is the Fifth chapter....
Don't thank me... Thank Alison.

Apparently it won't let me do it.

I have the originals and the pdf files on the jam book. Now that we've been using it a few years, there are errors, as you would expect from a collection of lyric/chord charts donated by volunteers, but most of it works for the purpose of getting a group loosely together to play the same song in the same key.
