In June we put on the Prairie Lake Pickin' Party, our own festival featuring local and regional bands and plenty of pickin' around the festival grounds. The city has a small stage in some shade trees of this nice lake. We have our annual membership meeting there, and a band scramble to give pickers a chance to meet new people and do short stage performances. Simple camping (dry), partial shade, with a pit toilet and electricity available at most sites. Remember to bring your lawn chairs to watch the show!
Open KPPA Membership Meeting: Saturday morning, 10 a.m. at the membership table. General business of the Club will be conducted and it's open to all KPPA members. Come be a part of the process!
Band Scramble: follows the KPPA Membership Meeting (see above). Band Scramble participants will take turns on stage from 1:00-4:40 p.m.
