Subject: RE: FSGW Getaway 2000 Memories
One thing that was different between last year and this - last year I think we felt like very welcome guests. This year, there wasn't much of a distinction between "us" and "them." Folks knew each other from last year, and it was like meeting old friends whether Mudcatter or FSGW members or both. The Mudcat workshop was full of non-Mudcats (shall we call them "Guests"?) who are perhaps lurkers here or potential 'Catters. We ran out of time before everyone had a chance to do a song.

I really regret not having more of a chance to talk with folks, but there seemed to be no end to the singing, and I'm not complaining about that! I also regret running out of mini-disc space on Sat, having to leave on Sun before the concert and what sounds like the best singing session on Sun night.

Speaking of which, Ferrara, if the bench-moving shanty was the second silliest thing you've seen, what was the first?!
