Greetings to you all, especially Skipjack. Would you be so kind and post the date and place here? I'm too idle to work my way through all the trollish complaints in the old thread.
My participation depends, alas, on the costs of transport; nevertheless I'm eager to come to see and hear North Lincolnshire men in their natural habitat.
Mooman's proposal sounds sound to me; after a meeting overseas we should change to terra firma of the real continent, and then back to another isle.

From: GUEST,Skipjack K8

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.

Greg

Hi, Skipjack - thanks for the rapid answer.
Oh poor me, I'm growing old - when an experienced librarian doesn't see a title any more, he should be drummed out to the library wall and fusilladed with all honours.
If you could care for a simple accomodation: with
1. 2 strong older trees in the garden for my hammock, distance not less then 5 yards (oaks or/and limetreespreferred, not younger than 100 years),
2. a small place for a dachshund garage (the regulation field tent), or
3. any space under any roof (above or under a table about 6"6' long and 3" wide) I should be more than content.
How to get there cheap? Is there a Ryanair terminal near?

Wilfried, to get there cheap: throw yourself into the nearest river you can find. Always swim downstream. At one point you should end up in the north sea - head for Great Britain, once you see it follow its east coast to the north, then swim up a bit of the Humber - four miles before you come under the bridge, get onto the lefthand (according to swimming direction) bank... ;-)

Are you expecting any treouble? And why do you want to record it? ;-)

Skipjack, don't give the floor space I booked to someone else!

And while fine-tuning, please consider giving us a tour of Hull!

As I have never waxed any bikini - which quantity do I need? And which brand is the best? ;-)

Wilfried, if you are rash enough not to take Andreas' sound advice, a poor second would be shinning up the mooring ropes of the Pride of Rotterdam.

Flying is a cheap option, but sadly the nearest airport that offers runway space to budget airlines is Leeds/Bradford, and you will then be involved with expensive and time consuming rail journeys. We do have a perfectly suitable international airport on our doorstep, at Kirmington (Humberside Airport), but only sheiks and lottery winners are able to afford to use it.

I would suggest booking P&O Ferries out of Rotterdam Europoort, as a foot passenger, on the night of Thursday 29th April 2004, disembarking in Hull on the morning of Friday 30th April, spend the day probing the soft underbelly of Hull, after which I will collect you and drive you over the water to Barrow. Likewise, I will return you to the ferry terminal in Hull to catch the evening boat on Monday 3rd May. Change any of the dates above to suit your itinerary (i.e. I can have one of my people meet the Saturday morning boat, and/or deliver you back on Sunday night)

Andy and Wilfried, we should be able to run to floorspace for both of you, so consider yourselves housed, however Spartan the truckle

So that's sorted.

Essex Girl and I are still planning to try to get to this event complete with our ancient little caravan. Is someone going to start a list of those going, and will there be a timetable of events, menues etc as for Stony Stratford ?

Incidently will Oaklet need to dip Linda's nipples ?

Let's try to keep this thread current in the same way that the SS one was - the comic/fantasy bits especially were great fun.

Right, peeps, I have had a few enquiries about accomodation in the locale, so I have had a look round the possibilities.

I have it down that Doo Ron and Glen have bagged the double room at the B&B over the road, and that Wolfgang has first refusal on the other, single room there (if he doesn't fancy the indoor camping in my bothy). Incidentally, it is run by the redoubtable Mrs Styles, whose architect, cyclist, musician and all round good egg husband has a website here where fine whistles are available. The Moos and the Vikings are staying at our shack, as is Mudguard and Letty, but I'm worried that the sewer won't cope with any more.

However, there are seven beds available in various configurations at King's Well, in Goxhill which is in the next village to Barrow, roughly two miles to the east. There is also Glengarth B&B in Goxhill that may be worth checking out.

If you fancy hotelling it, there is Reeds Hotel, near Barton Upon Humber
which affords expansive views of Oakley's whelk pens, but that is a good four miles west of Barrow and the centre of activities.

Camping and caravanning is also an option, which will probably bring damnation on the weather. There is one in Barton Upon Humber

Having said all that lot, I wish I had found this page first, as it has the whole lot listed there!

Even I'm starting to look forward to it now!

Sorry, David, we crossposted, as that last one of mine took an hour to prepare.

Glad you and the hirsute Lady Linda will be able to come. I haven't confirmed a running order yet, but we will have the centrepiece in Barrow Village Hall on the Saturday night, with the rest centred on the various local pubs that will house sessions and the like.

It would be a good idea to start a list, so if anyone would like to take a stab at one, I'd appreciate it.

Skipjack - in one of your earlier postings you suggested that we could put our caravan next to your semi - was that serious - our caravan is only 11 feet long.

BTW - Linda's hardly hirsute - in spite of not shaving or dipilating various areas !

Perhaps we ought to bring the boat ('Ursa Minor' 17" Cabin Cruiser) instead of the caravan.

What would be the ideal numbers for this gathering - is there a top limit ?

I think we should be trying to get all the mob who went to Stony Stratford there at least. That would include Micca & Kat, LtS & Manitas, and McGrath. We should have some spare seats if we're towing the caravan up. What about McFat, Raggy and co as well. If it's going to be a Euro gathering, then we need to start recruiting.

Is anyone organising the inflatable moat for the underwater kazzoo championships ?

Ducks and Ducklings, you are most welcome. It is about a fifteen minute walk to the caravan site from the middle of Barrow, but I feel that the facilities there would be much better for the caravanners and campers. Dave, there is some room down the lane beside our gaff, but it belongs to our neighbour, who can be, err, mercurial. I will ask them soon if we can invade their ground, but the site will afford far comfier conditions. Please let me know which option you want to pursue.

The theoretical top limit is however many folk we can squeeze into the village hall, which is many, and the capacity of the two village pubs (the now legendary Six Bells, and the other one, which I think is called the Royal Oak) which is also many.

However, when the usual date of the Eurogathering was decided upon for the UK leg, it caused nearly as much schism as when the one true church ended up with a Pope in Avignon as well as yer man in Rome, and as in UK terms it clashes with Mayday highjinks and the Moron Cursed (as they seem to ennunciate in 'Ull) junket in Whitby, there is likely to be a good deal of numbers dilution, which is fine with me, as long as everyone is happy doing what they're doing. In summary, I don't want anyone to go on a three line whip and end up with pressed men. Or wimmin.

I'm not fussed about being on a commercial site - We just wouldn't want to be too far from the action. Do you know anything about Greenfields Caravan & Camping Site which seems to be the nearest ? If it's still only £4 a night, that's quite cheap even compared with Caravan Club CL sites.

When are you expecting people to arrive - Friday evening or Saturday morning ?

Sorry you couldn't find the campsite Jane. It is to the east of the village, on the road to Goxhill, and can probably be best found by bunging the postcode into streetmap or multimap.

I am due to negotiate with the Six Bells tomorrow night, so I will report back re child policy.

The planning is still at a fluid stage, as we chaos merchants say, but initial ideas are thus:-

Friday night (30th April)      Mixed song and tune session in Six Bells, Barrow
Saturday Lunchtime (1st May)   Mixed song and tune session in Haven Inn, Barrow Haven
Saturday afternoon             Cultural tour of Hull, by coach from and to Barrow (these are high points of Eurogatherings)
Saturday night                Centrepeice concert, Barrow Village Hall, featuring a performance by Cara, open mic and separate singaround and tune sessions (if wanted)
Sunday Lunchtime (2nd May)    Mixed song and tune session in Royal Oak, Barrow
Sunday Night                   Survivors' Session in Six Bells, Barrow
Monday (3rd May)               Depart to seek liver transplant.

Also, we didn't want to miss the chance to do a Mudcat Fundraiser, so there'll probably be a raffle or suchlike on the Saturday night do, so please everyone bring something of value or interest to put up (that includes a quart of whelks in a presentation Kilner jar (read Cannon, Americans), David). jOhn might even be persuaded to cart over a vanfull of his famous curry. The possibilities are endless.

There'll be plenty of free time to do one's own thing, and it's a dip in/out sort of a do anyway, but hopefully everyone will make the Saturday night hootenannay.

Silver Birches seems to be the only site of the four which is still open. It's a commercial site with full facilities, but costs £9 or so night - with an extra charge if there are more than two people.

There is supposed to be another (more basic - ie CL level) site on Barrow Road though, but I can't find a phone number - any ideas Skipjack ?   I'll have a look in my Caravan Club book.

Richard, they are speaking Brummie, and Oaklet has translated it for me. Apparently they live very close and would like to come and delight us with what, on previous form, will be a ripsnorter of a set at the Open Mic on Saturday night, as well as as many sessions they can make. KJ is a midwife, so may be limited by unreasonable mothers insisting on parturition during session time. The rest of the message was a bit rambling, but that's the gist of it. Clever bloke that Oaklet. Plays the violin, too.

Dave, I think I know that place; wobbled past it on me bike this morning, into the teeth of a north-westerly with scything rain. Then I espied the delightful Pistachio in Hessle Square, but fearing her well known lyrca-lust, admired her from afar. Sorry, I'm rambling now. I will check it out. Sorry all that info is so out of date. The caravan sign is still up on the roadside. Will report back.

In the thread about Kendall & Sorcha visiting the UK, Bill\Sables describes Barrow upon Humber as part of Yorkshire. Is this just because his geography is hazy about the southern boundaries of his county, or is yorkish expansionism about to rear it's ugly head ? I think you might have to consider raising a defence militia of sturdy Lincolnshire yeomanry to repel any planned invasion from the north. Perhaps Mr Sables' recent overseas trip was in order to find allies from other countries.

I have found a couple of Caravan Club CL (Certified Location) sites listed in the CC sites directory. These are usually just fields with a water point and elsan emptying facilities, although some do have loos and electrical hook-ups. They are usually quite cheap £5 or less. Officially they only allow CC members and are restricted to a maximum of 5 pitches, but many that we've been on don't enforce these rules strictly.

West Marsh Lane, Barrow Haven DN19 7HA. Tel: 01469 530331 £5 map.

Have contacted both of the above and their prices have increased since my site directory was published.

The first (about 1 1/2 miles away) now costs £6.50 per night but that includes a power hook-up, there is a single toilet.

The second (about 3 miles away) now costs £4 per night, no hook-ups, but it does have 2 toilets (male & female).

I probably will go for the second as I shouldn't need the hook-up (for a radiator) at that time of year.

There is a lunchtime session planned for the pub at Barrow Haven, but I'm not sure if you can get there from the first site without walking back down West Marsh Lane to Ferry Lane, as there's the beck in the way. BTW - Are you a Caravan Club member Mrs Duck ?

Of course if anyone knows a friendly farmer, with a spare field (and preferably a water tap) then that might sort the problem.

The field next to Butters Wood, in Goxhill (over the road from the Caravan Club, bounded by the railway line, Soff Lane and College lane on the map identified by Dave Bryant) has been offered, subject to confirmation, for Mudcatters attending the Mudcat Eurogathering 2004 - May 1st-3rd who want to camp or caravan.

Part of the field may be under hay so the numbers on-site would have to be negotiated There is a small amount of hard standing for caravans and the like but no hook-ups. There is a tap but no toilet facilities so you would have to bring your own loos.

There is a strong possibility of a marquee being available for after session socialising.

If there is any interest in using this site then I could follow this up.

If there are likely to be a few other caravans, campers etc, we'll be quite happy to use it. If we're likely to be there on our own, we'd probably rather park our van next to Skipjack's. We shouldn't need a hook-up in May, about the only thing that would be useful is somewhere (ie a drain) to empty a porta-potti if it becomes full. We have a whole herd of gazebos if needed.

Brid Widder, although I don't believe I am your accuser, I feel I ought to reply as the organiser, and say that I am sorry you feel insulted. I really didn't want all the shouting for and against the date that happened earlier on, as I only wanted two things. Firstly, that everyone accepts that the Eurogathering always happens on the first weekend in May, and secondly that I want everyone to do what they want, and attend the function that appeals to them most. I don't think the rather shrill debate on date was helpful, and I regret even more that it has left you feeling insulted, and ultimately ignored. I did respectfully point out to Dave that a lot of folk he mentioned had other festivals they intended to support, and that it was OK with me.

Please accept my apology for whoever insinuated you were engaging in Trolling, and I hope that you and all the regulars going to the Moor and Coast have a wild old time.

Guest, it is being held from Friday 30th April to Monday 3rd May 2004 in the sleepy hamlet of Barrow Upon Humber, which nestles between the rolling Lincolnshire Wolds and the broad majestic Humber, in North Lincolnshire, close to the Humber Bridge and the place where jOhn from hull lives. But it might be in Stourport on Severn in July. An carping workshop is offered, abitiously priced at £57, but anyone interested will be unable to apply by PM.

The programme sketched out on the back of a fag packet, which is already in chaos, is:-

Friday night (30th April)      Mixed song and tune session in Six Bells, Barrow
Saturday Lunchtime (1st May)   Mixed song and tune session in Haven Inn, Barrow Haven
Saturday afternoon             Cultural tour of Hull, by coach from and to Barrow (these are high points of Eurogatherings)
Saturday night                Centrepeice concert, Barrow Village Hall, featuring a performance by Cara, open mic and separate singaround and tune sessions (if wanted)
Sunday Lunchtime (2nd May)    Mixed song and tune session in Royal Oak, Barrow
Sunday Night                   Survivors' Session in Six Bells, Barrow
Monday (3rd May)               Depart to seek liver transplant.

If any player has got £57 to burn on such a pointless excercise, they can just put it behind the bar at the Geriatric Eel and Pram whilst us experinced sessioneers rip along with gay abandon!!!!!!!!!!

Oh why does the winkle always turn to the right,
Turn to the right, turn to the right
Why does the winkle going upstairs at night
Put his little nightshirt on and turn to the right
Tail first he toddles up to bed
He pulls his little door down tight on his head
But why does the winkle always turn to the left
When he comes down for breakfast in the morning


I am informed by my friends at Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex that this doesn't hold true for Whelks though, as Neptunea Contraria the reverse spiral Whelk is quite commonly found in that vicinity. Is this the reason that you are enquiring about how the Whelk wrestling entrants are organised in their dexterity, Oaklet ?

Incidently, Essex Girl cooks a superb Paella as will be attested to by the various attendees of our BBQs - perhaps she could use Whelks in one ?

Whatever you do Fib, don't give that Skip E-Wing £57, otherwise someone will post with an amusing name, using exclamation marks and bold type. I have just prodded Ripper - the most promising of the wrestling whelks. What a difference a bit of carbo and tartrazene can make! Fiesty and aggressive with a deft and damaging touch of the foot. At this rate, entrants may have to sign a disclaimer.

Oi! Dave Bryant, I can assure you there is nothing reverse-spiral about my whelks. This sort of thing may be ok in Walton-on-the-Hyphens, but this is the north, where a spiral only goes in one direction. Such accusations, across a crowded bar would end in the premature demise of a pint pot, a hasty evacuation of the premises, bloodshed, an ambulance and handshakes in the morning.

Hi Skipjack,

I have checked the timetables of the German and British Railways and am considering the big adventure of 17 hours train travel from my home to Barrow Haven Station, with a lively study of London Underground.
But as an alternative I'll check the amenities of Ryanair and such at the weekend. (Ferry from Rotterdam is too expensive for this man.)
I'm planning my arrival for Friday, and have booked my floor place long ago, remember? But two robust hooks 3 yards distant for my hammock can do, too.

You're quite right Fib, I suppose we should pour oil on troubled waters.

Mind you that Oaklet is a bit of a piece isn't he? Pity he doesn't keep sheep.Mind you if I catch that Skipjack up to no good I'll emulsify him for good and all.

By the way, what's the Irish name for a dealer in Lard?

Hi Eric. Sarah should be driving unless I pass my test in time and can drive us myself - but that would be a minor miracle at the mo! Still at least the North of England's roads are safer without me on them!!!

I'll either catch up with you before the gathering and get my sleeping bag then or can you to bring it on the Friday?

Fibs: If you can get to Leeds -it's only a short train ride from Sheffield then we can probably give you a lift over to the gathering. My housemate's driving so it depends on her but I'm sure that'll be fine

Mooman - as I said earlier, Linda and I will probably leave Thursday evening and spend the night in the caravan at a site near Huntingdon.
We probably won't sort out the exact details until nearer the time, because we've got to sort out what Linda's 15 year old son will be doing for those nights.

Andreas - I think Fib is probably a Born-Again Virgin.

50p a can Noreen ? - down here in the south you get 4 cans of Tesco's Value Bitter for about 80p. It's so low in alcohol that it probably counts as near-beer and therefore they don't have to charge duty on it - but it's great if you've got to drive home.

Re camping at Butters Wood
The availability of this site has been confirmed but, one month on, the way I interpret the replies is:        

Dave Bryant & Linda (Essex Girl) want to camp with others but have alternative arrangements if necessary

Terry K would prefer something closer but will go with the flow

Bron (Llanfair) is a possible with a camper van

Kate will be searching through the cellar for her tent but has not commented on the site


If you add myself, who would like to camp but could cope as a day visitor, it doesn't add up to a lot of interest – certainly not enough to warrant setting up the marquee.
Dave, Terry, Bron, Kate and any others that have not yet identified themselves: - the offers still there if you want it.


Skipjack, how do I get on to the cultural tour of Hull ? Do I have to reserve a place on the bus ? How much will it cost ? (and before some smart-arse chips in – NO! It doesn't cost £57)

If anyone wants to borrow a tent, I've got a spare 2-person Eurohike - but please let me know first. We also have an inner tent that we can set up inside our caravan awning.

I have a feeling that Noreen is intending Stewart to be above her - but I'd be quite willing to take over that onerous but delightful position if he gets too tired - and if Linda's somewhere else for a while :-)

No way, Andy! You're tall enough as it is! (Well, you might be able to serve as our crow's nest ...)
Anyway, doing the cultural tour by bike seems a great idea (said she, never having biked in 'Ull before). And it doesn't really seem worthwhile to find a bus for a fifteen-minute tour, does it?

Now, if I'm still allowed to come along after this nasty aside:
Dave Bryant - yes, I'd like to borrow one half of your spare tent (actually, both halves might be called for ...). So, thanks for the offer. Does it come with transport to and from the campsite? And, as I said earlier, I'll bring my own sleeping bag.

Susanne - if you borrow the tent, it's up to you who you share it with ! - it's only a small (igloo style) eurohike. They'll probably be an airbed to go with it if you want. We'll have spare seats available in the car if you wish to travel at the same time as us.
We might also be able to dispense the odd cuppa etc.

Is this biking thing serious ? - we could bring a couple of folding bikes with us if so.

Cycling doesn't seem like a bad idea at all. I've just purchased a second-hand bike here for 25 euro (plus 12,50 repairs), and I'm gradually learning (by trial and error) how to use the gears. Would you believe I've never had a bike with gears before? They're redundant in the Netherlands. Oh MudGuard, I'll do a German song for you instead. Or a Dutch one. Or maybe both.
OK, on topic: I'm too lazy to PM you, Skip, but I'd like to come on the tour.

A bike would be one way to do a tour de Hull as long as the vapours from jOhn9's curries aren't likely to seriously corrode essential parts. Perhaps Oakley could design some whelk-powered propulsion units. Noreen - I'll offer you a lift on the handlebars - it would make it quite fun trying to get to the bell !

Seriously, I think we quite likely will bring bikes with us - they can go in the caravan for the trip up.

I'm still not sure if I'll be available for the cultural tour of Hull or not. Maggie and I discussed it and we said that we might give Moor and Coast a miss for one year. If I'm in Hull I'll be delighted to give you all the runaround (and I can cetainly use a few £57s).

I'm imagining a walking tour of the Old Town following the route of the Fish Pavement. If I'm not available there should be a leaflet available from the Tourism Office (under the City Hall) that will give details of the buildings on the route (I was involved in helping produce this leaflet when I 'worked' for the Council).

The route passes (through?) at least three of our significant pubs, Minerva, Black Boy and Olde White Harte. Anyone who favours museums over pubs (anyone?) can visit them (they're free!) while the others wait in congenial settings for the others to catch up.

Fighting for Beginners is one of a series of workshops offered by Skip during the weekend. It covers fighting etiquette, techniques and tips to make you a more confident brawler. Some find the sudden eruption of senseless violence a bit exclusive and cliquey and the course is designed to provide a way into this charming and rewarding pastime. I have no idea how much he'll charge but I suspect it will be in the region of £57 not including accommodation. Just bring a pool cue stand and a long piece of wood with a big nail sticking out.

So, who is going to want a T shirt?

Money up front please with order, when price determined (This will probably be based on the supplier and printer and decided by the numbers required) There is no profit for anyone except the printers they are ordered from.

Please get back to me.pm me if you wish. (By the way, part of the slogan has been decided by some lovely young thing already, who shall be nameless-Do you remember Kate?-Opps sorry),

How dare you Sir. I have not been creaming off the profits from the lost Sirlard.This is an afront to my honesty. I am well known as an honest peasant of this land. The fact that he has lost himself, just means he is now on a voyage of self discovery (again) and will emerge dripping as fresh as a butter-fly.No, don't blame me that his compass is upside down,his oil cooling mechanism faulty and his bearings running hot!I only told him to keep heading west until he came to what looks like a very big river and to then start swimming until he reached "the other side". (He fell for it-I guess) Now for my inheriatnce.


Welcome all peasants to the republic of Grease. Noble friends elect me as your leader. I promise equality and fairness. Beatings only on a Sunday, unless deserved otherwise.

T shirts for;Andy, Richard, Greg, Eric, Fibs, Oaklet,Terry K, Wilfried, Doug. Anyone else?

I have no idea of cost yet, and am waiting to see if there are more takers before I find a printer. They may be around £10.00 or less I hope. I don't expect to pay more than that. I've started putting out feelers and asking around.Is £10.0 too much? To litle or just about right. Some places will do "one offs" I gather, so 10 would not be a problem. More would probably be better.

Hi,

Although I'm fairly new to Mudcat, I am hoping to attend -- would love to meet some of the faces that go with the names & posts I've been seeing/reading.

For health reasons, I need to sleep in a space that has an electrical outlet; I'm figuring one of the B&B's is my best bet at this point, but am hoping there might be one (or 2 or 3) others who might be interested in sharing a room, which would help keep the individual costs down. (Please PM me if you're interested.)

I'll be coming from Sheffield, and would be happy to give a lift to anyone else coming from there (or thereabouts). Fibula Mattock -- if your other arrangements don't work out for some reason, let me know; you could get a train to Sheffield & I could take you from there.

(On the other hand, if there's someone from Sheffield already planning to drive, I'm quite happy to ride (if you have space) & contribute to petrol costs.)

If I turn out to be the *only* one coming from the Sheffield area, then I'll probably try to get a train to Hull -- if some kind soul could be persuaded to give me a lift from Hull to the site of the actual gathering.

BTW, had the pleasure of meeting the Ducks this weekend (at the Barnsley Folk Festival -- great singing!); we were talking about the Euro Gathering & I mentioned I'd seen their names on the list above -- with a question mark. I expect one of them will prolly come post here eventually, but I can tell you now that other things have come up and they are not planning to attend at this point.

Cheers,

YY

Yorkshire Yankee, glad to hear you you are able to make it. If the train option is the one, then I'll have a Skipelf pick you up from Hull9, or advise you on the buses across the Bridge (It's the biggest bridge in Hull9). Do the fine-tuning by PM (including moby number if you have one of those ghastly modern contrivances) and I'll see to it.

Regarding accomodation boasting 240 volts, Mooman tells me that Doo Ron Ron and Glen can't make it this year (because Glen is succeeding Romano Prodi or summat), so the rheum over the road from here offered by the rolling-pin wielding Mrs Styles is officially free for rent.

Jane and Geoff Duck have told me that it is unlikely they will be able to make it, so there's no need to reply on that one.

I am now entering the panic zone well known to all previous MudEuroGather organisers, even the cool head of Wolfgang.

Mooman, that is wondeful news indeed that Ken and his new bride can join us. Brilliant! Wouldn't be a pucka Eurogather without him. That's made my otherwise rainy day.

Wilfried, I will have a local violinist, or somesuch collect you from wicked Hull9, and whisk you straight to the protective bosom of our quietly rural South Bank. Then we will try and integrate you back into Hull9 society safe in the phalanx of the cultural tour. So that's sorted.

Who is this local aerophonist? Vinegrette rien. £57 is the price, TIOFLI terms (take it or .........). That's a contractual term beloved of lard traders.

And another thing. I was out gigging with that Bill Sables in Whitby yesterday, and he has kindly offered to compere the Saturday Night Concert, for which the bill is now complete.

What we are hoping to be able to do is record the concert, and publish the highlights (which will be all of it!) as a fundraising CD for Mudcat. Early ideas for the title are 'Now That's What I Call Music 9' or 'Pay No More Than £57', but the marketing is at the embryonic stage.

9.

My dearest Skippy,
It worries me that I actually have in my possession a copy of "Now that's what I call music 9" and there are no songs about Hull on it, although the Ward Brother's "Cross that Bridge" may be an indirect reference, as might Genesis' "Land of Confusion". It does, however, have Gary Moore's "Over the hills and far away" on it, so it's worthwhile keeping. But no mention of whelks.

If any campers would like to PM me with an expected time of arrival and departure, I will PM back the exact location of the camping field.

If your not a member and therefore can't send a PM ..........well, now you have a good reason for joining.

Well, Fibs, my sadness is not beyond happening to know that the platter that you clutch was number one in the album charts in the UK on the fourth of April 1987, when you were a wee girl.

Those colonials, always sure to wait until an idea's a racing certainty, came to the party a bit late, and released their version in 2001.

So it seems this will be 'Now 9 III', which buggers up that idea.

Personally, I like 'Pay No More Than £57'
I also humbly submit the titles 'Fare Thee Whelk' and 'WHELKOME TO HULL! Mudcat Eurogathering '04' for consideration.

Have had no response thus far from anyone interested in a ride from Sheffield (or nearby) (Fibula, are you sorted)? If I don't get any response in the next day or two, I will go ahead & make train reservations, so let me know *soon* if you are interested!

Eric, please put me down for a t-shirt (XL). Thanks!

Cheers,

YY

The 1971 Morris Traveller can be at the ferry terminal at 08.00, Wilfried, to collect and deliver you to Barrow. As most drive Morris Travellers in Hull - look out for a white one stuffed to the gunnels with whelks, being driven by a naked bloke with three pierced nipples. That should limit the list of potential taxi-drivers to 10 or so. If you have difficulties, please go to a public phone box (they are bright cream in Hull9), insert a selection of small denomination pre-decimal coins and ask the operator to be connected to Barton 962. Press the A button when the call is answered. Button B returns unspent coins.

As Ryanair has decided to fly an hour earlier, I'll now be arriving Friday at 12.50. This means I definitely have to take the 5AM train from Cork, and then go to the airport REALLY quickly.
Iarnrod Eireann had better not break down like last time!

Looking forward to it,

For those interested in badges, I should be able to make either 57mm or 30mm badges (thats actual badge size - so leave a reasonable border). I can produce Mudcat badges in either size complete with your own name. If you want to supply your own artwork you can bring it either pre-printed (on thin paper) or on a floppy disk in a standard graphics format. I can't rememember the diameter of the actual cut-out for the badges, but will check up when I get home - so you can print a circle for cutting purposes (to get more accurate alignment) if you so wish.

Oaklet - thanks for the kind offer. By the way, since there is no Oaklet in the Profiles and Photos, are you a relative to an Oakley represented there (fiddling in Hull). If yes, do you look like him?
Since I don't know the size of a Morris, and considering that I have to share it with a lot of whelks up to the gills, I will retain my backpack to the tiniest size possible.

Eager to meet you
Wilfried

With all these Catters coming over from Germany, I hope that we Brits won't have a problem with getting the sun-loungers first. Oaklet - can you sort out some whelks to act as chair attendants to ensure fair play ?

Just stumbled home from the usual nonsense at the 6 Bells session last night- having been informed by the illuminati present that this 'ere MudcatEuro gathering is actually happening in Barrow - and not someplace called "europe", as I had erroneously assumed. Thus, my decision to spurn what I believed to be another attempt by the travel indistry to lure innocent offshore islanders into further debt with enticements to cross the Channel...sigh (sorry - Oaklet was at the pub last night , and is, i fear, contagious...)
SO.. if it's all right with you folks I intend to attend - can only make the Sunday though, as I shall be lighting the Beltane Fire on the Saturday.
Can I assume that if I turn up for the afternoon session this will "merge" into the survivors bash in the evening - thus saving me the trouble of an 80 mile round trip to attend both?

If the previous three EuroGatherings are anything to go on, the whole weekend will be seamlessly integrated and "merged", possibly with the aid of many bears.

I think you have a good point there, Daithi (and BTW, thanks for making the trek yesterday, it was great to see you, and you made it the cooking session that it urned out to be), so I'll start a new thread, as those watching in black and white on 405 line electric televisions are probably avoiding 400+ post threads.
