Subject: RE: BS: Thanks Roll and Go
Thanks to all for a wonderful sing! I usually hear shantys sung in "folk club" style, and hearing them sung with such strength of voice, energy and drive was a real treat! (It was also very educational. Although I grew up in Wisconsin, I was - until Saturday - totally ignorant of the Noble tradition of Great Lakes whaling.) Being a ballad enthusiast, I especially enjoyed Kendall's and Cptn. Bunker's renditions of Sir Patric Spens.

A special thanks to Naemanson for his valiant struggle to get both Sinsull and myself to the party in spite of our respective transit companies' determination to prevent our arrival.

I hope to see you all again.
