Girgarre 2009 – Update 3

by | 8 Dec, 2008

After the success of the 2008 Muster, organisers have decided to keep the format the same while extending the workshop program. Thanks to the local community, there are now additional venues available for workshops and jamming. There are also additional facilities available in the community reserve.

Important information:

The reserve is available for camping. This is only 50 meters from the Town Hall, and has ample room for tents and caravans. Toilets will be on the reserve and the town hall shower and toilet block is available at no additional cost. It is all included in your Registration fee.

Food will be available on the weekend. Included in your Registration fee is Dinner on Saturday night and breakfast on the Sunday morning provided by the local groups.

Muster office:
Registration is available at the town hall from Midday on Friday. CD’s of the bands performing over the weekend will be on sale. Girgarre Moosic Muster Tee Shirts will be available for purchase from Tex and Fi from Big Tree Tee Shirts.

Sorry, no fires allowed.

We will publish a full program on this blog shortly. Anyone – any age, any ability is welcome. We hope to have some spare instruments available if you want to give it a go. Local schools will be contacted as usual and we hope to get lots of children to attend the beginners’ workshops and develop a passion for music. The cost of the workshops is included in the registration fee. Workshops for locals and children are free of charge.

See the list and support the local businesses, or see camping above.

Friday Night Open Mike Concerts:
Open to everyone – put your name down when you register.

Saturday Night Concerts:
Well known bands playing on inside and outside stages along with selection of performers from the Friday night open mike concerts. BYO blanket and chair to sit on for the outside concert.

Sunday Market:
On the Sunday you will see one of the biggest Farmers Markets in Victoria in the Reserve.
A hundred stalls with local produce and crafts, historically attended by up to 3000 people
from all over Victoria the surrounding areas.

In Conclusion:
Those who have attended previous years know what a refreshing weekend it is. Lots of music, lots of workshops, and a great sense of community. With the total weekend registration fee of only $40 the organizers hope to break even. If we don’t we will run a chook-raffle on the Sunday.
