First Day - Youth in Bluegrass Competition

Today was the first day of competition.  What an afternoon of great picking!  I thought all the bands did well and I'm sure there was a roomful of proud parents there.  The band that came from farthest away was from Redding, California.

I watched every single group and am especially proud of our two groups:  The Pickin' Chicks and Charlie & the Girls.  Both groups played as well as they possible could have.  That was what I was hoping for.  I cannot imagine being a judge for this competition.  What a difficult job that would be.

Many thanks to Silver Dollar City and D.A. Calloway for putting together this wonderful event, throwing a pizza party for everyone, and giving everyone the opportunity to perform.
