Woodknot was the featured band. KapnKenB without the Skyps went down to Saginaw and then up to Cougar Mountain for the event. The old cooperative treeplanting gang, The Hoedads, bought the property on Cougar Mountain and it is now a center for alternative energy and hip gardening.








They built the stage structure just for the event. A seventy foot long fir tree is the front beam. Solar panels on the roof provide electricty.


Jerry Rust is an original Hoedad, one of the founding members. A Lane County commisioner forever, he gave it up to run for governor and ended up teaching English at a grade school in China. Home for the summer, it was a grand reunion and as an added treat, I met his wife, Star, whom Jerry married while in China this past year.
