I think it's a shame that this thread started out as well meant and a welcome forum for the younger members to discuss get togethers. Most of us younger lot appreciate others that like folk music as it's an unusual interest in our age group. I think advice could be put on other threads for meeting up because at the end of the day everyone's at risk, but we all just have to be careful. I don't think when there's talk of on mass get togethers at festivals that there's a massive risk - particularly as many of us are in our 20s. I also think it's a shame to put such a negative and unnecessary twist to the thread. It would be lovely to see the negative threads taken out and this to be a constant thread so that we had a forum to talk.
Please let us keep this going and without the bickering. And Pete ignore the comments and don't get upset by them - it's really not worth it.
