Chris, I've enjoyed your articles for a long time. I especially appreciated the one about your recovering. I hope all is still going well.

Yup, Chris. We've tapped the next person on the list - it's a young guy who wants to play the banjo as well as Ralph Stanley. Thanks to your contribution as well as others, we're sending six students to kamp this year. Three to flatpicking, one to mandolin, and two to bluegrass banjo.

Hey Bud, good to "see you around' this place. Will you be at Kamp again this year?

I found the most magnificent old book store that you'd find magical; I need to tell you all about it, so plan on lunch one day!

Hi, Chris, Good to see you here... well I guess I would, wouldn't I?

I sure enjoyed the David Grier concert you put together in Marshalltown. I'll hope for more such concerts in the future.

Oh, and I finally took the time to subscribe.

Castle Ridge is playing at Rock Creek State Park this Friday night (6/27). We'd appreciate if you'd let people know.

- Mark
