Fiddle Contest on Sunday

Just another friendly reminder about our fiddle contest on Sunday.  Also, don't forget that we are in a new location this year due to the closing of the building that we have used in the past.  We will be at the New Athens Community Hall.  It's very easy to find, especially if you look for the New Athens water tower!  When you turn from Highway 13 onto Van Buren (the only stoplight in New Athens), stay straight until you see Chester St.  Make a right onto Chester, go three blocks, and you are there!  The Community Hall is at the corner of Chester and N. Johnson.

Not only will you hear some great fiddle players, but you can also enjoy some great food!  The Pickin' Chicks will be serving up pulled pork, hot dogs, nachos, potato salad, chips, baked beans, and assorted HOMEMADE desserts.  (I hear there will be gooey butter cake, carrot cake and pineapple upside-down cake and more!!!!!)  There will also be soda, lemonade, coffee and water available.

The fiddle contest registration starts at Noon, with the contest itself starting at 1:00 p.m.  There are FIVE divisions:  Junior III (12 & under); Junior II (13-15); Junior I (16-18); Open (19 & up); Senior (60 & up).  All juniors will receive a medal regardless of placement.  Trophies and/or money awarded to the top 5 places in each division.  For complete details and rules, CLICK HERE.
