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.

Blowout Tank outside of Flagstaff, AZ
*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.
Location: Blowout Tank at Willard Springs
Directions: From Flagstaff, take I-17 south to the Willard Springs exit (Exit 236), about 17 miles south of Flagstaff. From the exit, turn right onto the paved road that leads to the trash compactor station. Follow the Forest Service road (NF 253) to the north around the backside of the compactor station. We will be camped on the right side (east) of the road within the next half mile or so – watch for signs along the road directing you to the site.
CHILI COOK OFF CONTEST: We will have a chili cook off on Saturday night starting around 6:00 pm. Bring out your best culinary creations. Prizes include a Pickin’ in the Pines 3-day pass and gift certificates!
Potluck on Saturday night: FFOTM will supply the meat for grilling and a veggie option. Please bring a side dish to share (or your favorite homemade chili!) your friends and family, your instruments for pickin’, warm clothes and friendly pets. FFOTM will supply Sunday morning breakfast (donations gladly accepted).
We need volunteers! If you want to help with set-up, break-down or kitchen help on Saturday eve or Sunday morning, please contact Mark Alexander: Call 928-699-5456 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
