Hi Y'all,

Just a reminder about this year's SOTW.  It will be another great camp. Great instructors, great classes, great concerts and great jams at a great price, in a wonderful setting at Stephen Foster State Park on the historic Suwannee River . (Think Florida Folk Festival without the heat and humidity, and you don't have to travel to NC or WV).

Make your plans now to attend. Remember, there's a $15.00 late fee after November 20, so register early.  If you want the information below in an MS Word file, just let me know.

To Whom it May Concern:

Luckily, I remembered the name of one of the die hard attendees and I called him and found out where the East Colonial jam moved. They are now held at the University Baptist Church in east Orlando. When the weather gets drier and cooler, they plan on moving back to the parking lot at Big Lots.

You may want to add this to the Central Florida Folk Website so folks will know about this. This jam is pretty well known and has been going on for years.

The Parking Lot Pickers Country Jam:

University Baptist Church
14707 Sussex Dr.
Orlando, FL  32826

I'm sure if sometime later after the gang has moved back to the parking lot, they could still contact the church to find out if they are still meeting there or if they've gone back to Big Lots.

Thanks again for your help!
