Here's what I know:
Unfortunately rain foiled plans for the Shenandoah Winery Fall Festival show. The vineyard owner reported that this was the first time it rained in 29 years of festivals, thus no rain date has been considered. John has the awards and door prizes, and hates to waste them, so come on down!

- Saturday, Oct 11, Mount Jackson VA.
- In a big field (Lasting Impressions Landscaping) on the east side of Main Street (Rt 11 south) across from Rinker-Frye Memorials.

Just a reminder. See the details on the main site calendar page.
Tomorrow looks like a great day, weather wise. John says the venue is fantastic, with short grass. He might move the Shen Vin show to coincide with this event in the future. Hope to see you there!
