The day before The Gathering ended, we met in the Pickin' Shed to talk about next year.
Mary and Jack led the discussion. It was decided that The Gathering was a huge success but you can get too much of a good thing so next year The Gathering will last for one week instead of two and will be held the last week of September so it doesn't interfere with all the people who come to Ozark RV Park in October. There will be fewer concerts and probably no open mic. Classes will be scheduled to give everyone a longer lunch hour that can include time for a much needed nap!
This is a list of the songs that were taught during The Gathering. There were over 50 free workshops! No wonder everyone was so worn out.
