So we have clearly been having a rough go the last little bit at the grind. Thing are working out and we are trying to find our footing again but it takes a lot of work and dedication from everyone involved. At this time all of our focus has to be on continuing the publication and that is why we must regretfully inform you the country grind gathering has to be canceled this year. We are very sorry for the inconvenience to anyone who has made plans around attending. No one is more disappointed than us that it cannot happen. Part of the motivation behind the grind is connecting rural folks from everywhere with similar lifestyles and ideas with one another, which is why the gathering was so important to us, also we really REALLY wanted to party, learn and hang out with you all. Thank you so much for your understanding on this, we are doing the best we can right now and hope to organize a gathering at some point in the future.
