Flatpicking Guitar Network

For Fans of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine

For several years we have raised funds through Dreadnoughts Unlimited for scholarships to Steve Kaufman's Acoustic Kamp by a variety of methods. Chief among them has been a raffle of a quality musical instrument. We are not going to have a drawing for Dreadnoughts Unlimited at kamp this year, but will continue to raise funds by other means.

Thanks to generous contributions from the winner of the Naugler guitar last year and from other supporters of the scholarship fund, we will be able to award scholarships for kamp 2009. Applications are currently being accepted, and everyone who is motivated to advance his or her musical skills is encouraged to apply. Information on how to apply is at http://duscholar.home.mchsi.com - send 'em in now....

One reason for not having a drawing this year is to avoid confusion among kampers. A drawing separate from Dreadnoughts Unlimited has been set up to give away a Proulx mandolin, and the funds raised by that raffle will benefit the Studdard Family Scholarship. It's a good cause, and deserves your support. For more information, go to the following:

Seth Naugler is building an OM guitar that will be displayed at kamp for your perusal. It will be given away at kamp 2010, and we will begin accepting donations after this year's kamp sessions for that raffle. This will be a fantastic "multi-purpose" guitar - it will fit "mature bellies" better than a dreadnought - it will hold its own in a jam - it is going to be a fingerstylist's dream. Seth is a world-class luthier - check his web site out at http://www.nauglerguitars.com and the blog he wrote while building the 2008 DU guitar at http://nauglerguitars.com/kampguitar/.

Your support over the years for the Dreadnoughts Unlimited Scholarships has been fantastic, and is greatly appreciated. Without you, it couldn't happen.

"Very nice, clean, rendition of this old civil war song, and the tone of your guitars is great! (You know that Elvis recorded this in the 1950's as "Love Me Tender?")  Wish I had  ason to pick with!"

"This has been my favorite flatpicking/fiddle sine I first heard Doc Watson do it 55 years ago! Your rendition is more than excellent! Guess I'll just have to keep practicing until I get it right!"
