I know some of you are wondering about the upcoming Academy lottery starting next week. I wanted to let everyone know as in past years we will announce an initial lineup of instructors on Monday morning with more announcements during the week. It's tough to confirm everyone this early, but we're doing our best and we have some exciting additions that hopefully will come to fruition.

We've also made a few changes and clarifications to our guest policy. Feel free to check out the FAQ link on the Academy homepage.

I wish you all good luck in the lottery and hopefully we can accommodate most everyone.

I think it is odd that if you attend the academy and get an onsite camping permit for the festival, your spouse (that doesn't want to attend the academy or hang around as a guest for three days) cannot join you in your onsite tent for the festival unless they happen to win the lotto for onsite camping for the festival.  I think it is a policy which should be changed.  It isn't reasonable to expect an academy student to pack up their campsite and move it to an offsite campground when the academy ends and the festival starts.

Scott, presently we haven't extended the right to procure camping passes for friends who aren't also your guest at the Academy. So it's basically a two step process for you and your RG guest. 1. You play the Academy lottery. 2. You play the RockyGrass on site camping lottery. Sorry there's not a more eloquent precedure but that seems like the fairest way to deal with  RockyGrass camping passes and demand.

If a banjo player picks in the woods, and no one is there to hear him.... is he still making an awful lot of noise?

Oh... I am feeling very desperate for a guest pass. Two family members got into RGA with an additional kids camp (3rd family member) and now Mom can't come as guest to be camp cook, etc.... Our guest pass component of one of our lotto applications did not appear to get approved. I thought either your application was accepted  as a whole or not. Pleading for guest pass, as this arrangement is going to make camping for the week challenging for Dad and the boys. Anyone who knows of a fguest pass available, please pass along the info to me or share my contact info.

I am in for mando, my wife for bass and the kids in the kids academy.  We are psyched.  Now I have to deal with the anticipation.  I guess its a good problem to have.
