All the information is somewhere in the old threads, but not easy to find. So here you go, for the most vital details:

Who/Where:
Wolfgang Hell
Wiener Str. 24
Münster, Germany
Tel.: 0251/374477
Handy: 0174/8988691

When:
Saturday, 5th of May, noon, til Sunday, noon, roughly

Why: Ah, you should know that by now.

Timetable: open to changes

- I'll be at home on Saturday, so come whenever you are there or feel like
- noon: the largest group of German Mudcat gatherers, i.e. the British delegation, arrives and marks the official start.
- noon to 4 pm: buy everything you want to bring home, the shops close at 4 pm
- 4 pm: guided walk through the town
- 6 to 7 pm: latecomers will find me/us at my place again
- 7 pm: walk to a bistro (with instruments), eat, drink, make music, be merry until closing time
- midnight til don't know when: be my guests at home for beer, wine, whisky, water, sleeping places, have a look through my records, CDs, songbooks and missing song lyrics.
- (very tentatively): 9am, Sunday: walk to have breakfast in a bistro (same, if we liked it there, other if we didn't)
- noon: who's still there can join me for German food in a restaurant

Llanfair, we have an English shop in Kiel. Maybe they've got some Marmite in stock from before FMD struck. Should I ask them? I could also bring some Fray Bentos tinned pies, Heinz sandwich spread, Cadbury Easter eggs - anything else? (What they've run out of is Cheddar, to my chagrin.) See you all soon!

Llanfair: the pure existance of this MARMITE stuff is reason enough for every sanction the Netherlands declare upon imports from the UK... how can you DARE even to think about the possibility of bringing this unholy potion to the mainland???

Beside, I will forever wonder what marmite includes. Only one thing is definite: goo of a very, very sick skunk is an essential part of it. hence the delicious taste.

Just to let you know. I have had it confirmed by the Netherland office of tourism that the restrictions are true. No foodstuff or drink to be taken into Holland, not even, polo's or gum, oH dear!!!!!

Mudguard, you are really confusing me and this will cause a problem!! When I am in Holland, I always ride on the cycle paths, How will Bill get his car on there, and Skipjack in his Italian stallion has an even bigger car-but it is not red.

Did you see the local news in Yorkshire-The new ferry looks excellent, my wife is spitting teeth!!!!!!!!! She wanted to go on it and we are booked on the old one for our cycle trip in the summer. She nearly changed her mind and said I could'nt come.

So I kissed her and she said I could go for a month to get out of her way.(only joking)

This time next week,we shall be passing out of the lock gates and into the Humber on our way-YES YES!!

Bye

Hey, Llanfair, don't get involved in my "fight" with Noreen! ;-) Do you take the narrow-gauge train from Llanfair C. or do you go by car to Welshpool?

To all the car drivers coming from England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland ...: don't forget to drive on the right side of the road when you leave boat in Rotterdam ;-) And on your return trip when leaving the boat in Hull, don't forget to switch back to driving on the wrong side of the road again ;-)

8 days and still counting (although I get almost too excited to get the numbers right!)

NO FOOD OR DRINK! Thats exactly what I asked P&O who feel that the Dutch are being just a little bit too enthusiastic, we also have to drive through a disinfectant thing-what's on your feet(ie traces of mud or other substances) is irrelavent, unless we have to walk through something?

I'm glad that we are not (my lot and I) on our bicycles for another 3 months, because we need to carry liquid with us for the kids. I am just repeating what I was told by P&O. NOTHING edable or drinkable, I personally feel it's a load of rubbish, as the virus can be carried on clothes and all sorts of other things from what I hear. How a bar of chocolate, a carton of drink, even a bottle of beer can carry it I don't know.Surely anything prepackaged at the point of origin must be safe. After all, there are container loads of stuff going through all the European ports every day.

One good thing, they might disinfect melodians with a flamethrower-Ouch Pat, that hurt!!

It applies to everyone who goes through the ports, so it's not anti UK, but heavy protection I guess.

Just think this time tomorrow, and one week hence we'll be sailing out of the Humber and well on our way!!!!

IMPORTANT

This is for everyone travelling from the UK next weekend.

Bill told me this last night and I have just rung P&O to confirm.

You CANNOT take any, food or drink off the boat at Rotterdam. They mean ANYTHING. No chocolate, any drink, no sandwiches, tins of beans! chewing gum,NO FOODSTUFF at all.

P&O say you can take what you like onto the boat, but thats as far as it gets.

Dutch customs are thouroughly checking every vehicle and confiscating any food or drink they find.

There is however a McDonalds**** about 6Km from the port and places on the way across to get stuff, if we can't wait until Germany. Sorry Noreen, no Eccles cakes! Greg-No grub!Bron-no cheese or veg sarnies etc. As for me-no chocolate-what a disaster!!!!

I think there is no problem bringing back stuff and I didn't ask them about buying Cigs or stuff like that on the boat, so I don't know. I'll wait until we get there to buy any cigars or pipe tobacco and bring it back, but it does mean we'll have to be careful that we don't have anything with us that could cause a problem for the drivers.

NOT LONG TO GO NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cheers

Eric

I know now, where our best instrument shop is.
I also know where the two records shops are that might be able to replace our only good shop. But perhaps they only have the fourth reunion CD of the Fureys and the seventh Dubliners celebration album. The old shop was at least so good to have the newest Waterson:Carthy CD.

for opening hours: see Mudguard's post (downtown, you'll find shops open until 4pm on Saturdays, but not near my place (downtown is a 20 min walk)

prices are similar to the Netherlands

Bron, we'll find some place for you (in the worst case: in my sleeping bag on the floor). However, I could book a hotel for you (no B&B as you know them in Germany): roughly 100 DM for a night including breakfast would be my guess. Let me know if I should book.

What will the neighbours say? Not much I guess, for we are usually rather quiet. As for Rainer and Gaby, immediately below us, I know which room they sleep in and we'll be in the most distant room in the flat. As for the others, Angelika is in principle a Mudcatter as well (though she posted only once with a special request) and James will be delighted to hear his native language spoken instead of that awful German. All others are too remote to care.

Should the food when we go out rather be cheap or good???

Of course I look forward to meeting everyone for the first time (except, as stated before, Llanfair, the only one of the lot I have already met). It's really exciting!

In Germany, shops are allowed to open Monday to Friday 8:00 to 20:00 and Saturday 8:00 to 16:00.

There are a few exceptions: bakers may open for three hours on Sundays, bakers and newsagents may open earlier in the morning (I think from 6:00 but I am not really sure about it), shops at filling stations, airports and train stations may sell "travel goods" around the clock. "travel goods" is interpreted very freely - it is no problem to get alcoholic drinks (bottled) at filling stations...

11 days till we meet!

Oh great,-this is holding my life together at the moment. I can't wait, even though it's really only an overnight stop for most of us Brits. please don't believe everything you see or hear or read about Brits being non European.

Shame the shops shut on saturday afternoons, do the supermarkets stay open until later? No shops open at all on sunday?

Are prices similar to those in the Netherlands? If so I am very familiar with them.

STILL NEED PASSENGERS FOR SKIPJACKS CAR-not shouting really,just trying to help.

See you very soon I make it 11 days tomorrow that we sail!!!!!!!!

One question to anyone out there who is going. DO know where I can get "Gorilla snot"?(Sort of glue to hold picks still in between thumb and finger) My carpel tunnel problem in my right hand is causing me to loose grip on my picks.

Individual feedbacks or questions:

- the best record shop in town has closed 2 weeks ago. I have no idea yet which place has now anything close to folk music. I'll try to find out until then. (Susanne: Nottuln folkshop has only open the second Saturday in May, hasn't it, or do you think they'd make an exception for a bunch of folkies???)

- There is a shop with music books downtown, not bad, but not specialised in folk

- all shops for food or similar things (Eric: tobacco) are at walking distance from me (shops will close at about Saturday 2pm and be not open on Sunday)

- Menzze: I can imagine how awful it is to take the wrong means of transport, for I'd hate to take the car for such a long distance. Give taking the train another thought.

- directions where we are (if not at my place) will be pinned at my door, so any listeners from whereever should be able to find their way.

- prices might be a bit cheaper than in Great Britain, but not much.

- Eric: 500 g of coffee cost from 5 to 10 DM, with 8 DM being a good guess. BTW, do you really mean 'coke pipe tocacco' or am I misreading? Pipe tobacco varies a lot in prices, 10 to 15 DM for 100 g is my guess, but I'm a nonsmoker since 15 years. I've no idea about prices for chips (do you mean a deep frieds or in which state).

- there is everything to drink at German pubs not just alcoholic drinks.

- the British might consider buying the cheap Scottish malt whisies over here.

DIRECTIONS

if you come by train: Take either bus #2 or bus #10 just outside of the main entrance of the station (same side as the station, not opposite). Say 'Dechanei Strasse' to the driver and you'll get a ticket for a short ride. Leave at 'Dechanei Strasse' and Wiener Str. starts just at the opposite side of the street where you left the bus. You'll have a walk of 200 m.

if you come by plane: At Muenster/Osnabrueck airport you'll take the bus to Muenster Main Station and once there you'll proceed as above.

if you come by car and come from the (South)West or South: in both cases at the Autobahn 'crossing' 'Münster Süd' you follow the sign to Muenster and drive straight on even if the Autobahn has finished. The street you'll drive in will be called 'Weseler Str.' and follow it all the time (signposts: 'Centrum') until you see at the left hand side a MacDonald's 'restaurant'.
At the second red light after this unusual sighting you'll turn right (follow sign 'Bielefeld'). If you are now in 'Moltkestr.' you are still doing fine. You'll come then to the only roundabout in Muenster and take the second exit (still sign 'Bielefeld' I guess) (the British friends doing the roundabout clockwise take the 4th exit).
If you are now in 'Hafenstr.' you're doing fine and follow this street (it often turns slightly left for you are on the ring around Muenster center) with all its name changes (after Hafenstr. all names end with 'Ring' whatever comes first.
After about 2 km on this ring there'll be a big hospital at the right hand side and you'll take the next turn right (it'll be signposted 'Bielefeld' again, but be careful, for 'Bielefeld' has been signposted to the right before, so actually you follow this time 'Bielefeld' only at the second chance to do it). If you are now in 'Warendorfer Str.' you are doing fine, if you are in 'Wolbecker Str.' turn round and try again.
Assuming you are in Warendorfer Str. you now take the third turn left ('Gerhardstr.'; attention, a very small street in a slight left turn), immediately turn left again ('Egbertstr.') and then right ('Wiener Str.') and look for a parking place.

if you come by car and come from the North: you'll leave the Autobahn at 'Greven' (the sign directly at the exit says also 'M$uuml;nster Ost') and head for Muenster. The street is all way long 'Schiffahrter Damm' for about 12 km. You follow this street with all it's turns and when you reach Muenster you still drive on for another 2 km. Immediately after a level railway crossing (disregard all other railway crossings before like e.g. when you are on a bridge across the railway, wait for the level crossing). You'll be in 'Ostmark Str.' now and Wiener Str. will be the third street left.

MAPS: As for the general approach to Muenster look here

As for an interactive street map click here.

General timetable (open to suggestions):

Saturday, 5th of May, early afternoon: Meeting at Wiener Str. 24
late afternoon (4pm): Guided walk through Muenster
early evening (6 - 7 pm): eating out at a restaurant downtown (German?, Scottish?)
later evening (from 8 pm): Music session (at the spare room of a pub or at my place or in my garden, weather permitting)

Everthing else like shopping (Saturday morning, monday morning?), another walk (Sunday morning) will be organised on spot.

I'd love to get more or less final feedback who is coming and when. As I said in another post, if you are already here on Friday night, don't hesitate to give me a call.

Wolfgang

12 days...

if I look at the list of participants, I think we should rename this thread to "European Mudcatters get-together. 5 of 12 people come from England, 1 from Wales, 1 from Belgium and only 5 (less than half!) from Germany...

About the same pictures in the "unsure" section, 4 of 9 Germans only...

But then, the British speak of Europe as the continent, not including Britain and Ireland...

br> Please confirm / deny and add any other comments coming into your head ... :-)

I'll be arriving some time Friday night / Saturday morning. Wolfgang, if you go for the rolls in the morning and find a middle-aged white Kadett Kombi with Kiel numberplates and a stout and rather dishevelled-looking middle-aged female hippie in a purple sleeping-bag inside parked outside your house - that's me. In that case, please give me a knock!

BTW - I quite like the idea of a guided walk of Muenster on the Sunday morning (or Saturday afternoon)!

I think I'll bring a few songbooks, just in case! CDs as well? If it's to be broadcast on Mudcat Radio we could sing some of the songs that have been lacking tunes so far in the DT. - Sorry, no, Rollo was going to bring the equipment.

Greetings to Rollo, the Duck family, Les, Uilleand, Joe Offer and anybody else who has thought about joining us and is prevented by circumstances. We might start planning another Mudcat gathering for 2002 so that everybody gets ample warning! We could even suggest a special 'Folk on the Internet' event to the Rudolstadt Folk Festival organisers and get ourselves free access there. Would offset the cost of travelling to Thuringia somewhat ...
