Subject: RE: Mudcat Eurogathering 2004 - May 1st-3rd
Wilfried, old love, I am delighted that you ask.

The thread title hints at the date, but to dignify it with days, we kick off on the night of Friday 30th April, and disperse during Monday 3rd May, which is a public holiday in the UK. The weather can usually be relied on to be appalling at that time, with the notable recent exceptions of 1997 (when we changed Governments) and 2003. Yes, we British are obsessed with weather. I mention this here in case any potential attendees are already packing; put in ice pick and crampons as well as the bikini wax.

We are to gather in the village of Barrow Upon Humber, in North Lincolnshire, here . Barrow is about five kilometres south of the city of Hull, across the wide expanse of the muddy River Humber. From Hull, one has to use the magnificent Humber Bridge, which alights at Barton Upon Humber, four miles to the west of Barrow.

We are still fine tuning the event, and will post more here nearer the time. I will also do some research on local accomodation in the reasonably near future.
