This year’s T-Shirt with our logo (all designs by Ms. Donna Overall) can be seen at and ordered from www.zazzle.com/donnaoverall
which is Donna’s online store. The T-Shirt is at the very top of the page, under “Top Picks”.
Mark your calendar – bring family and/or friends. The weather is usually perfect!
FRI: Live music begins Friday evening, so please support these wonderful players! We have a delicious dinner & munchies & we play until we want to sleep. If you come on Friday, you are welcome to spend the night!! We have lots of air mattresses, and those of you with tents or campers are also welcome.
Breakfast: Those who spent the night or come back early on SAT. & SUN. get ham & cheese omelettes, cinnabons, toast, coffee and OJ!
SAT: The main party on Saturday starts around noon, so please make a special effort to come and support the music when it begins. Bands and acoustic musicians will play all day, so there is a wonderful variety of music available on both the stage outside and an acoustic jam inside the house. Aside from the appetizers that guests bring and put accross the front porch on Saturday, Cowboy’s BarBQue will have food for you to purchase all weekend, and we will make sure to have some vegetarian dishes for those of you who are so inclined.
GUESTS: On Saturday, please bring an appetizer or dessert for all to share on Saturday afternoon. There will be Pony Rides, a Moon Walk and more for the kids! There is also a quiet room for naps for the kids (and YOU too, should you need one). There are horse shoes, frisbee, volleyball and many other games for everyone.
SPENDING THE NIGHT(S): You are welcome to spend Friday and Saturday nights at the farm with another wonderful breakfast on Sunday morning, and more music on Sunday, ending early enough to get home and get ready for (YUCK) work!
SUN: There is going to be a Picker’s Circle on Sunday afternoon just like we have at Cowboy’s, and it should be wonderful! We been having close to 20 musicians and singers each time we hold it. Acoustic, percussion and all instruments are welcome.
HELP THE FLING: Please bring chairs, air mattresses, tables, etc. if you have them to spare/share.
URGENT: Please RSVP as soon as you can with an estimate of how many folks you are bringing and what days/nights you will be there so I can plan for enough food for Saturday and Sunday breakfast. The number of folks doesn’t have to be exact, just a guesstimate so I can plan.
PLAYERS: So far we have players coming from Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas City, Tennessee, California and Vermont. Come support these terrific people since they have come so far to offer their talent for this event.
MUSICIANS: We thank you in advance for your wonderful donation to this event and can’t wait to hear you play! Please let me know as soon as possible if you want to play, because I am scheduling now.
I am asking for a donation of $10 from those of you who are not musicians to help cover part of the cost of the Fling. Children under 12 are welcome free, and this donation helps pay for all three days of wonderful music, fellowship, sports, entertainment, and food, as well as camping should that be your desire. If you cannot make a donation, please still feel free to come and enjoy the party anyway as I understand these are difficult times.
There will be lots of different types of music to enjoy, from Rock to Bluegrass and Blues, which will be played both outside on the “stage”, and Acoustic music in the house, so please mark your calendar and plan to come! The Fling is a wonderful time for all, and this is our 8th year!!!!
The next “Tweeker” will have more detailed band info and directions to the farm.
