UPDATES & NEWS
WELCOME TO THE BUCKEYE
DULCIMER FESTIVAL WEBSITE!
THANK YOU ALL for a great #25 of the
BUCKEYE DULCIMER FESTIVAL !!!
Stop back for
updates as we add more slideshows and videos. For now, this picture of the
audience for one of the
open stages was just awesome. After 5+ hours of classes, folks still had the energy as well as the need to
support those willing to take a risk in playing on stage. It was so much fun!
Buckeye Dulcimer Festival, 2016, open stage audience.
A festival in Ohio ... in March??? Really? THAT'S RIGHT!
Here at Recreation Unlimited just north of Columbus, Ohio, we never know if we'll have fall, winter, or early spring weather ... sun, rain, ice or snow. We've had it all. This picture to the right tells a lot of the story.
Up close and personal are the three folks responsible for a smooth running festival with a lot of fun added in for good measure.
From left to right: Joyce Harrison (BDF co-director), David Hudler (RU business director and liason), and Shari Wolf (BDF co-director). David gave us a magic wand that we wave occasionally and He Makes It Work!
Now for the background in this picture ... people visiting, laughing, a little studying, and making the weather work.
This begins to tell the "Buckeye Story." This website is packed with information, but don't hesitate to email us with questions.
Information requested after the festival:
1) Just wanted to let you know that Mike L has rested up and is doing well.
2) For those of you interested in the Christian Musician Devotional that I had displayed on the performer's sales table, you can order the book through Marie Wise's website, http://christianbandhelp.com/ and going to her store (Amazon). She also has an Adult Christian coloring book and more. I know Marie. She lives in Findlay and comes from the music world. She has helped me immensely with updating my web skills to 2016. You'll see the results on the BDF website soon. ~Shari
QUESTIONS FROM THE PHONE, EMAIL and MAILBAG
Emails and phone calls are coming everyday and some of the questions and answers might be beneficial to everyone interested in BDF.
-- Is there Wi-fi available onsite? Yes. In the Welcome Center, Life Center, and marginally in the Dining Hall.
-- Do I have to sleep on an upper bunk? NO ... no one sleeps on an upper bunk.
-- Do you provide for vegan vegetarians?
I read this email and then it disappeared. I apologize to
whomever sent the email.
-- Can I come to the festival for just
Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday?
-- Can I register and not pay for meals?
I will be commuting and don't need to have meals. The same
question because of dietary needs.
