Everyone’s family at Pickathon.

These days those words are ringing truer than ever and we’re so thankful for the entire Pickathon community (what a family!). It’s been humbling to see the outpouring of love and support from so many far and wide in the wake of the recent tragedy. If you haven’t already, please consider supporting the families of Brad Swet and Brandon Blackmore by donating to the memorial fund on GoFundMe. We love you all and couldn’t ask for a more loving and supportive family of volunteers, fans, staff, partners, and artists creating this place “where no one is an outsider.”

So what’s next? Well, we are still working through these questions (both in a practical & philosophical sense) and trying to best understand what it means for us. It has not been easy… but we’re full of hope and the love & appreciation has certainly brought us real comfort. For now, we just want to say Thank You.
