Port Hadlock Banjo Hangout
Final Update
By Chris Stone

The Hadlock Banjo Hangout is March 11 to 13. Banjo enthusiasts from Washington, Oregon and Idaho will converge at the Inn at Port Hadlock for this weekend of banjo playing. Those who are not players will hear a variety of banjo music in different jam sessions throughout the weekend, plus the enjoyment of exploring Port Hadlock and Port Townsend.  For the banjo players, we have a continuous opportunity to get our banjos out and put our fingers into action.  So bring your favorite tunes to share with others, and extra picks and strings to keep you going. 
Although our block of rooms is sold out we understand there is still a room or two available so you could still make a last minute decision to join in the festivities. Saturday meals have been ordered and a few extras included for first hungry folks too.
Lodging reservations should be directed to the Inn at Port Hadlock - (800)785-7030,

Thursday evening at 8:00, early arrivals will jam at the Ajax restaurant, a three minute drive from the hotel.  Saturday evening, appropriate party attire (costume) is encouraged, so dust off that flat hat and vest or your flapper dress.  Fun is the theme of the weekend.   We look forward to seeing you there!
