I’m flying in and will have my hands full with a suitcase and guitar. Are there any options for folks who may have trouble bringing in a chair, music stand, and instrument stand?

Thanks Ben. Looks awesome!! Ya know, it’s super awesome that you and the gang take time to do this. I tell ya, the character and the passion of you, as well as the other folks here continue to amaze. So, I’ll just say thanks, and I’ll see you for sure at the 2021 camp!!

Yep, you can ship the items to your hotel. Most all hotels are happy to receive items a day or so before you arrive. If for some reason they do not, we can arrange to ship here. I’d rather ship to your hotel if possible (not an instrument, of course!) because I have so much stuff piled up here. If you have to ship an instrument, you’re fine to ship here unless you trust your hotel.

Well Daniel, that’s just the norm down here at Banjo Ben’s Pickin’ Emporium :slight_smile: You’ll get used to it.

When I first discovered this site, I remember thinking - man, I sure wish I’d found this place years ago.

Thanks for the video about what to expect. I’ve been worried about not being good enough to attend. Just started guitar a year and a bit ago. Love bluegrass and have heard most of the song list. But you can’t improve if you don’t push yourself.

So you’re saying that you got an email? That’s what I needed to know. That something went out and I missed it.
I’ll contact Ben’s office on Monday and have the email resent.
Thanks!

I went ahead and deleted your email addresses. Leaving them on a forum like that is an invitation for bots to scoop them up and start spamming you.

I got the forwarded emails. And thanks for everything you do! Looking forward to meeting you!

Will we have access to wifi at the camp? Coming across the border means roaming charges for me, and my carrier is quite pricey. I want to sort out how to keep in contact with my spouse who will be touring while I am at camp.

@BanjoBen, I can’t believe how much you guys have decided to bite off this close to camp time! You’re ambitious if nothing else!

@My_Ruby_banjo, it’s just like Ben describes it…really! I was there last year, and was a contender for the least-prepared, most uptight award…and I still loved it! It did indeed push me a little, but I certainly needed it. Everyone was warm and welcoming, and it was a non-judgmental atmosphere. I learned a lot, and made several new friends and memories in the process. :smiley:

Yay Ben,
I appreciate and laugh at your enthusiasm on the video. Also am looking forward to meeting you and the family of pickers and music lovers. Can,t wait to see the new work when I arrive for the second spring Camp.
Thanks for giving me a perfect excuse to explore some new country and learn a thing or two on the banjo.
