In June we put on the Prairie Lake Pickin' Party, our own festival featuring local and regional bands and plenty of pickin' around the festival grounds. The city has a small stage in some shade trees of this nice lake. We have our annual membership meeting there, and a band scramble to give pickers a chance to meet new people and do short stage performances. Simple camping (dry), partial shade, with a pit toilet and electricity available at most sites. Remember to bring your lawn chairs to watch the show!
No Band Scramble: In the place of the usual band scramble we will have an open mic starting at 1:00 for groups that want to perform.
Raffle: Dick and Bobbie Durow of Dick Durow Music and Rick Roberts of Kansas Guitar Shop, have donated a guitar and case for raffle.
Retail Tables: The club charges $25 for groups or individuals to sell their wares. Check newsletter for details, or contact KPPA.
