Seeking Great Grey Fox Stories

As mentioned in our latest newsletter, we are producing a book of great Grey Fox stories, which we’re very happy about. We plan to complete the book by the end of the year, and to make it a success, we need your help!

We are looking for 70 positive stories: 5 from each of 14 different categories. Stories may be submitted by fans, artists, staff or anyone who has had an extraordinary experience at Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival or any of the festivals at the Rothvoss Farm going back to 1976.

“Your positive story” could range from your most memorable musical experience to surviving our famous July weather to meeting the love of your life.

Here are the categories:
1. Family and Friends
2. Love and Marriage
3. Bluegrass Academy for Kids
4. Camping
5. Food / Cooking / Recipes
6. Amazing Weather
7. Musical Memories
8. Grey Fox Artists
9. How Grey Fox Has Changed My Life
10. Behind the Scenes
11. Miscellaneous (for stories that don’t fall into any of the others)
Plus these “appendix” type categories
12. Packing for Grey Fox (What to Bring/What to Leave at Home)
13. Camping Dos and Don’ts
14. Priceless quotes overheard at Grey Fox

With just 5 stories in each category, these spots will go fast. We would love to hear from you. So, please click on the link at the bottom of this page and submit your story!

And if you know someone who has a story to tell, please put them in touch with us.

Contact Mary Burdette with questions or to set up time to talk.
10477 Cross Street, Hammondsport, NY 14840

This is going to be a really fun book, one we can all be Happy About! If your story is selected, we’ll be in touch for a photo of you and possibly a photograph that might go well with the story.

Proceeds of this book will benefit the Grey Fox Educational Fund, which funds the Grey Fox Bill Vernon Memorial Scholarship and the Grey Fox Bluegrass Academy for Kids.

Thanks so much in advance. We look forward to hearing from you!
Mary Burdette and Mary Tyler Doub
