Subject: EuroGathering 2005 Countdown
From: mooman
Date: 02 Mar 05 - 05:23 AM

(otherwise known as The Not The Moor and Coast Festival)

Dear EuroGatherers,

As the previous thread is well over 100 posts now, I thought it opportune to create a new one leading up to the event. In the next day or so I will post up some practical information and a provisional programme (which of course will be open to complete rearrangement as usual on the day itself!).

As previously announced, the gathering will take place between Friday 29 April (for early arrivers) and Monday 2 May (for late leavers) and will be centred round our friends the Jerram family's farmhouse at La Garenne, near St Sigismond, near Niort (or Niort9 if you prefer) in mid-Western France (Vendee-Charente Maritime area).

Some people have booked floorspace and others will be camping or motorhoming in the ground. There are also some cheap hotels and B&Bs nearby and I will link to those shortly.

One such possibility for accomodation is La Bosselle in Damvix (about 2km away) which is where we are confirmed and will be welcomed on the Saturday night to play music and entertain the locals! Their website seems to be down at the moment so here is something retrieved from Google's cache which gives details:

Huit chambres, 1 salle de restaurant, 1 terrasse et son jardin ombragé.

À Damvix, au cœur du Marais Poitevin, l'hôtel Restaurant La Bosselle vous accueille toute l'année dans un cadre et une ambiance agréable et conviviale. En famille, entre amis, ou en groupe, venez découvrir La Venise Verte et explorer un milieu naturel extrêmement riche, en barque, à vélo, et pourquoi pas à cheval. L'équipe de La Bosselle ainsi que nos partenaires sommes à votre disposition pour la réussite de votre séjour. N'hésitez pas à nous contacter !

À bientôt à La Bosselle

Établissement recommandé dans le guide du routard 2005. Membre adhérent à la Fédération Française de Cyclotourisme.
Chèque vacance, Ticket Restaurant, CB et chèques acceptés

Hôtel Restaurant LA BOSSELLE
5, rue de la Garnauderie
85420 DAMVIX
Tél. 02 51 87 13 11

Saturday afternoon's "traditional" EuroGathering trip will comprise a trip by punt(s) around Venise Verte's famous canals and I assume musical instruments will be brough along for a session afloat (weather permitting!). If the Jerram girls come along we may stage a 'Catters vs. locals football match on a convenient-sized field they have. Again, I'll post details as I get them together with other addresses, maps and the like.

More information soon!

Peace,

Richard (mooman)

Hi folks - Feb 24th I had my last operation (re kidney quarry) and was kicked out of the sickhouse. On the way back home I slipped on the ice, fell upon my head (bruises only), broke 2 ribs and 1 left arm, and was brought to the next infirmary (fortunately 3 minutes away from my house). Now I'm home again and pressing the keyboard for a training.
Either I'm too stupid to find the happy birthday skipjack K8 thread, or there is none (is it possible?)
So I take the occasion here to send my late but none the less heartfelt and sincerest felicitations to our ringleader of the 2004 gathering. Happy Birthday, Greg, and many happy returns of this day!
As the doctors say I should be ready for travel before April/May. So let's hope to meet again in France.

Flights to Paris and back are booked.

I'll land there at 11:10 on Friday.
As I don't know how long it will take to get out of the airport and on to Gare Montparnasse, I can't say at what time I will arrive at Niort ...

==> Richard, if you could send me your mobile number (by PM) ...

The flight back is on Monday evening, so there is plenty of time to get back to Paris ...

Btw, that "Clickable Map" way up in this thread leads to an error page ...

I just checked the train times.
There is one leaving Montparnasse at 10:50 which I can't reach as I land at 11:10, and the next at 13:10 which I should easily reach.

I'd then arrive at Niort at 15:25

Should the plane be delayed very much, the next train will go at 14:20 reaching Niort at 16:29

Or take a boat.

You must come, Letty, by whatever means of transport!
There is only six of us hardcore EuroGatherers left - only six people who were at all of the EuroGatherings. You are not allowed to leave the hardcore, Letty!

Add a question mark to my name, please.
Sorry to bother you all with the details, but just to keep you posted:
Ferries don't agree with the weekend, even the one from Rosslare. I'd have to leave on the Tuesday (extra holidays...), and there are no trains back on the Sunday (no Monday fare), so I'd have to take the car, which would make it unaffordable again.
It comes down to a flight plus train trip.
Looking at it, it'll be about 300 euros either way (Cork-London-EuroStar/TGV or Cork-Paris-TGV). About twice the amount I could afford, so sorry folks: unless a last-minute deal comes up, I won't be there.
Sniff.

Your list did not include CET and Charmion, coming all the way from Canada.

We may not be core (think of us as rind), CET has already booked us into the hotel in Damvix and negotiated the hire of a car. As the winter takes its last grip on Ottawa -- still air temperature of minus 22 Celsius; minus 32 with the windchill this morning! -- we maintain our spirits by drooling over the Michelin Green Guide to the Atlantic coast of France.

I was always coming (especially since I learnt a whole new chord), but now can't. I have a gig in Dubai which impinges on the start and a further gig (with golfing sticks) around Cannes which impinges on the end of it. I'd be prepared to miss the golf but not both - especially as Dubai is a company junket for a week, everything paid for, including all drink. I'm sure you see my problem.

Maybe the date could be changed.................
