Y'all have fun in Berea!  

PS- Whoever wins that little dulcimer had better pose with it for photo to be posted here at FOTMD.  :)

Bobby told me he was going to win it since he could probably guess the actual 9 woods used in it. grin

Best wishes for those checking in at Berea this afternoon.  It should be a great opportunity for traditional dulcimer players to meet and learn from each other.  Don't forget about those of us who could not attend.  I enjoyed David's photos and summaries of last year's activities.  Hopefully, someone will follow up with more photos and a report on this year's activities.  Enjoy yourselves.

@Dusty-Turtle Perfectly good tuning for Elzic's Farewell.  Perhaps the mug is a hint. . . Fingerpick it and use a noter!   :)

The Berea Piglet Hogfiddle for the giveaway at the gathering is nearly finished. It's made of 9 different Appalachian wood species. So brush up on your Appalachian wood species because the first name drawn that picks the right ones is the winner! Can't wait to see everyone!
