If youve never shot the Western Regional, you definitely owe it to yourself to give this great match and event a try.  You'll find the match itself really well planned and very well run.  And any way you look at it, it's hard to beat camping for five days on the gorgeous Central California coast.   

The event gets better every year, because the Chorro Valley Regulators keep adding more activities to make the time and camaraderie more fun.  Once you try it,  you will want to return every year.

Roger, the Pick, Sing, and S'mores jam was a lot of fun last year. Are you planning a similar format this year?  A couple people I know have asked:  By "acoustic" instruments, does that include acoustic-electric?

Hi Dusty Devil Dale...


I received a few PMs about the Jam, and thanks for the question - happy to clarify. Yes, our format will be the same. This is an acoustic stringed-musical instrument jam. so, acoustic guitars,, banjos, mandolins, Dobros, fiddles, etc. We gather around our campfire (next to the Sheriff's office) and we will be playing mostly cowboy, bluegrass, folk, country, and old-time music. We'll go around the group and each person can select  a song to sing or play an instrumental (or pass if you prefer).


It would be ideal if each person would announce the song they are going to play, the key they want to play it in, and, if necessary, talk through the progression so that folks who don't know the song can at least tag along. We had players of all levels so just come and have fun.


The campfire will be going, and we'll have s'mores. Jacq Neat helped organize the s'mores last year and I think she's helping again this year. We start at 7:00p and stop when we're all winded out. It was pretty neat to be playing and singing as the sun went down!


Last year we had about 6 or 7 musicians and about 35-40 folks who just came for the s'mores, camaraderie, and music! It was super fun. And as you suggested, folks have been asking if we'll do it again. There's usually enough seating but it wouldn't be a bad idea to bring chairs.


Singing cowboy song is a great way to end a day of cowboy shooting!


Hope we get a whole bunch of pickers this year!!!


See you all in August!

Sitting here in Phoenix on day 20 of 110+ degree days and the next ten days looking like more of the same I am looking for forward to spending a week in Morro Bay.  60 degree or low 70 degree days sitting on the waterfront having dinner is sounding better and better.
