One of the best things about FFOTM are the campouts held under the stars and pines of nearby Flagstaff forests is the music. Campouts are a rare opportunity to unplug, share food, see old friends, meet new friends and mainly do a lot of pickin’. Many a tall tale has been told by FFOTM co-founder Tony Norris to wide-eyed children warming by the fire and wrapped in sleeping bags like baby pigs in the blankets.

Ft. Tuthill County Fairgrounds
*This will be the only FFOTM campout this year, there will not be a Fall campout so don’t miss it!
It’s time to celebrate the beginning of summer with the FFOTM campout! Join us for 2 days of camping, jamming, good food, friends and lots of fun.
There is a new location for the campout this year. We will be camping at Ft. Tuthill Campground at the County Fairgrounds. We have a big area reserved for lots of pickin’, grinnin’, potluckin’ and relaxing under the cool pines and starry skies. Look for the FFOTM signs and happy campers.
We will have a potluck dinner on Saturday night, bring something yummy to share. We will supply some meat for grilling and a veggie option, but welcome your culinary creations. Everyone who brings a potluck dish will be given a ticket to help judge the Homemade Pie Contest…

What To Bring
Please bring your friends and family, warm clothes, firewood, and your instruments for pickin’! Friendly pets are welcome. We will do a Sunday morning pancake breakfast (donations gladly accepted).
We will have a large group fire ring for jamming around. We can not make additional fire rings, however you can bring your own above ground/contained fires (such as bringing your own raised contained fire pits, washer barrels, etc). Please LEAVE NO TRACE – your area should be exactly as you found it. Haul out ashes and do not make new rock piles.
We need volunteers! If you want to help with set-up, break-down or cooking, please contact Mark Alexander: Call 928-699-5456 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
