The beer thing re Iceland is true, at least it was last time I checked (20+ years ago). Tourists are allowed to bring some in (a 12 pack?) for personal consumption, bit you cannot buy it there. You can buy the hard stuff, as I recall, beer was thought to be the bane of the working class. :-)

Actually with us Welsh present the tit-for-tat slayings would probably start again.

Now theres a thought for a BS or Literary thread, "The Mudcatters Saga" with shades of "the Mabginon". Or does this mean a write of "The Flying Mudcatter"
"I'am the only tar that's ever jumped ship,
From Joe Offers crew".

Poor Skarpi! If the Mudcatters were to invade Iceland it would double the population at one go. It would probably make for a wonderful new saga (preferably without all the tit-for-tat killings). Actually I can just begin to visualise some Mudcatters as characters in Njal's Saga; Joe Offer as the wise Njal himself.

I do love Gareth's of taking a tramp steamer (do such things still exist?), and john in Hull could navigate us to see Nick Root in Newfoundland, or to Nova Scotia (watch out George!). Something to look forward to in 5 years time.

...What if some high-up European politoco mudcatter develops fascistic, imperialist tendencies? Then we could all get drafted and shipped over to join the EU invasion of the US via Canada (eh?) Timing might be difficult, but given a certain amount of inbuilt flexibility we might pull it off!

Thats it, I'am off to the attick to find my Grandfathers old sextant, I've got the dividers, and parallel rules.

One problem about Iceland, something tells me that beer is not obtainable there, can any Catter Confirm ?

SKW no problem on that, take the train to the tunnell, take another train to Liverpool, and to a chorus of LEAVING LIVERPOOL You can practise your pier head jump !

Alternatively try ACROSS THE WESTERN OCEAN

It was just a wish that I had to have a giant Mudcat Gathering, probably the bigest folk festival in the world. There would be no need to pay any musicians or singers and I'm sure there would be plenty of sponsorship from major instrument makers, music organisations and food vendors. We could charter a plane from Europe, if we have enough, to keep costs down. My idea was East coast USA around Phily. and spring time or autumn would be a good time of year, not too hot or cold. Anyway it is worth thinking about.
Cheers Bill

How many are we talking about? We could reserve a hotel on the coast of Maine or Nova Scotia, or even Prince Edward Island, hold the thing in August, and let the kids go wandering around in pine forests or exploring tide pools along that fabulous rocky north Atlantic coast. We'd need a stage, but if we reserve a hotel it would have something like that. Personally I'd MUCH rather travel to Maine OR Nova Scotia in the summer than go to Florida. (OTOH, what do I know? I'm a newbie and I don't really sing, except as backup to my son or bro.) At my day job I sometimes help organize conferences; this would be quite do-able with this much lead time. My 2 denarii.

I think you mentioned that before Bill and wouldn't THAT be a KICK?!?!?! I can imagine sending Skarpi a PM.................

**********************************************************

Hi Skarpi
Hope all is well and life is good. Always glad to see your posts at the 'Cat. And speaking of the 'Cat, we were thinking that some of us might come to see you and wanted to give you some lead time to set things up for it...like about 5 years lead time.

Really, it's more like quite a few, and we were wondering if you could do a little legwork on it before we get there. See, we're actually planning the 10 year anniversary of Mudcat to be in Iceland so what we need from you is to set up a few hundred rooms or places for us to stay......as cheap as you can too. Then, you'll need to work out some kind of food thing for a week or so for all of us and of course we have a lot with special diets so they'll PM you separately. Arrange some transportation too so we can get around.

Also, I don't know what the situation will be like by then in terms of travelling with instruments, so see if you can arrange for us to borrow a few hundred guitars, banjos, mandolins, accordions, melodeons, whistles, dulcimers (both types), dobros, and the like. Make at least half the guitars Martins and split up the rest between the other biggies.

Looking forward to it as I know you are too!!!

Spaw

Buying a 747 might be feasable - but I don't think fat bearded blokes going for pilot training would be that popular at the moment.

Now to buy a tramp steamer - I think we could raise a crew !!

I think this was an original idea from Bill Sables. He's talked some about it and we were discussing it when he was here in June. 2006 would be the tenth anniversary of Mudcat so it would be a big event if we pull it off. Since I have a track record of never getting to anything even when I plan it, I'm probably not the one to talk to about it!

A Catters Worldwide Gathering would be one helluva' deal though wouldn't it? I think the possibilities are endless and could include a "Public Invited, Donations Accepted" All-Day Concert in some large outdoor place. My first inclination would be to have it around Philly where Mudcat started but it's wide open as far as I'm concerned. No matter where it is, some are going to have to travel a llooonnnggg way and hence the start of planning now.

We'll get Bill's thoughts here I'm sure and everyone needs to be thinking of how we could pull this thing together.
