You may have read in the last issue of The Rucksack that Planet Bluegrass is a new sponsor of the Colorado Mountain Club. This summer marks the 20th anniversary of the Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, scheduled for August 13-15 at the Planet Bluegrass Ranch in Lyons. To celebrate this noteworthy occasion, Planet Bluegrass is featuring one of their finest summer lineups, including John Prine, Ani DiFranco, Greg Brown, Michelle Shocked, and more.
Planet Bluegrass is sponsoring a contest, open to Rucksack subscribers and CMC Facebook members, for two FREE Folks Fest 3-day Passes plus Camping at Meadow Park (a $320 value). Just click here to register http://www.bluegrass.com/other/cmc-ff2010.html. The winners will be announced on Thursday, July 22.
This year, the Colorado Mountain Club is part of an expanded kids’ program at both RockyGrass and Folks Fest. As always, kids 12 and under are free for all Planet Bluegrass festivals with a paying adult. Visit Planet Bluegrass at www.Bluegrass.com for tickets and more information about all of their festivals. And stop by the CMC booth at the Rockygrass festival, July 23-25. We'll have programming for kids including stream ecology, slack lining, knot tying, and lightning safety!
