What a nice surprise!!

I will be there in May for my annual trip to the Boonville Beerfest.

The fair and campground is really nice and grassy and some of the best beer in the world is available on tap from the source just a few hundred yards away.

Awesome.

i wouldnt take that map 100% literally; for instance that arrow may not be pointing to where the actual camping area is. thats a wait and see deal at this point i would guess.

woooooohoooooo! can't wait for summer, and I NEVER say stuff like that- I wish it snowed year round. Reggae in the snow would be my fantasy, but reggae near the farm sounds pretty good too.
Thank You Warren and Gretchen- the check will be in the mail next week!

Wow, Being an old Hogfarmer, it will be good to be back in the neighborhood. Too
excited to say too much more. Got a good motel already in Ukiah. Get tickets. Put
Frogtown behind. No more need to say NO on Marysville. A good backroad run from where we live. It will keep my wife jazzed while she drives. All ups. Yes.

Re: SNWMF 06, Boonville, CA

More of a drive for some of us but well worth it. Im sure glad went more north than south. Frogtown was only a taste of the narrow mindset that runs things in central and so cal. Booneville and Mendo in is where we will feel most welcome i'm sure.
Re: SNWMF 06, Boonville, CA

Excellent move. I live over the hill from the site and can attest to its attractiveness. And their will be much more tolerance (and respect) from the local authorities.

There once was a couple Gretchen & Warren
Who brought us to lands not so foreign
When we awoke from our dream
The earth was so green
And the music so incredibly special.

To you and your friends we hoist a Boont ale
To Mendocino we shall set sail
Reggae music for three nights and days
We give you our thanks and praise

Are they going to ask some of the local talent to perform there? Or will they hold out like the RasClots who run Reggae on the River!
What a perfect chance for SNWMF to bring in some of the diverse and amaizing musical talent, and mix it with some of the bigger names.

Lex,
They need to send a demo, remember no CD-R's, has to be a valid production...haven't check the sites yet but if their good and have some produced works I'm sure they will be considered for some opening slots.
