July 19, 2009 Fiddle Contest for Everyone!

The Bluegrass Shack is sponsoring its 6th Annual July Fiddle Contest. The past several years we have made this a Juniors Only event and held it at The Shack. Due to its increasing size and popularity (we outgrew our building last year), we are opening the contest up to all ages and have moved it just down the road to L&B's Eastend. This is where we held our October Fiddle Contest for the past several years.

There will be five contest divisions with a total of $550 in prize money & trophies to be awarded. All juniors will receive a medal regardless of placement in the contest. The divisions are as follows: Junior III (Ages 12 & under); Junior II (13-15 Years Old); Junior I (16-18 Years Old); Open (19 & Over); Senior (60 & Over). Senior and Open Divisions will play together, and seniors that score high enough will be eligible for the Open prizes. Please see the contest flyer at the end of this blog entry. If you click on it, you can enlarge it so that you can read and print it. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact us here at The Bluegrass Shack.

This event is held in conjunction with the New Athens Homecoming Parade. The Bluegrass Shack will again have a float in the parade, which will take place right after the fiddle contest. The float lineup is at 4:00 p.m. at The Bluegrass Shack, and the parade starts at 5:00 p.m. Everyone is invited to join us on the float or watch the entire parade from our parking lot. We hope you'll come!
