Am pretty sure that I've just had permission (thanks Marge!!) to hold a MudGather (with a possible MudRaffle) at Alcester Festival on Saturday 16th June at about teatime! Hopefully I'll be more sure nearer the time and will post definite details here.

But in the meantime, who's going to be at Alcester??? And would you be interested in a MudGather & MudRaffle??

I shall be there - and running Herbaceous Border again. We're probably going to dance in the Holly Bush Garden on both Saturday and Sunday afternoon. I'll put posters up with times etc in the Holly Bush pub and the Greig Hall when I get there.

If the times don't clash, I hope to make the Mudgather.

As always I'm on the look out for musicians who might play for us. Any offers?? Also anyone who wants to, is welcome to come and dance (regadless of whether or not they've danced border morris before)

Thanks Malc, Bedworth's another Must!!

Still haven't heard back from Alcester (what a lovely laid-back fest it is) re time & place but going on what Marje & I discussed we'll be trying for Saturday tea-time in one of the rooms above the Sports Hall (new venue I think). That's to the left of the Greig Hall as far as I can remember from our discussion.

Have got lots to do this week before Alcester (Sister arriving from USA, stitches out, Big Brother's funeral and will probably attempt replacing my Hard Drive again tomorrow) so may not get the details on here before we set off for the Fest. So keep the loose arrangements shown above in mind please. I'll try to get the time & place onto posters which I'll put at the campsite arrivals, Greig Hall and the pub with the beer festival - the pub name escapes me, can't imagine why!

Anyway, Mudgather format (as long as we can all get together in the same place & time) will be Meet, Sing, Laugh, Drink (pretty sure Marge said there's a bar downstairs), Chocolate & MudRaffle - oh, and lots of hugging but no hand-shaking for me please!!

Back on-line after installing another new hard drive, all seems OK for the moment.

Had word from Marje via Selchie that Mudgather time is 5.30-7pm on the Saturday in a room inside the Sports Hall - there will be direction notices! Be there or..... be somewhere else....

I've got a few raffly prizes (including some chocolate) in a bag in the caravan, anyone else bringing prizes?

I'm sorry I missed all the fun. I was at the Leamington 'Peace' fest. Did meet up with Nine Penny Marl which was nice.

Had to take yet another brand new tent back to the shop on Monday, this time due to exsessive condensation. The first tent I took back was after Chippenham, brand new again and let in water. What's going on? Is it really not possible to buy a good tent for £100 these days?

Discuss? (sorry bit of a thread creep)

Stewart and I enjoyed it too, Hils, thanks, particularly being outdoors on the lovely day that it was (before the rain came, anyway). I had a Crunchie one!

Was lovely to see hear everyone, some I have not heard sing for a long time.

We also had a nice sing in one of the back rooms of the Holly Bush earlier, which is still a lovely venue even though the "beer festival" beers were disappointing and more expensive than the beers at the bar. The Black Sheep at the bar was as good as ever, though Stewart preferred the Pig :0)

What a lovely weekend & a fantastic MudGather!! Many thanks to all who came, stayed, sang, missed their turn, bought raffle tickets & claimed prizes (and those who didn't) *grin*

We raised £60.00 for the Mudcat and eventually got people to take all the prizes away. (note to self - must issue guidelines for raffle participants) I've just transferred the funds across to teh Friends of the Mudcat account & they will make their way across the pond in due course. Thanks again!!

New to mudcat so nearly missed you. Arrived late with buggy to catch the "cuckoo" ! Enjoyed festival. Friendly & Good singing ! A little scary camping on flood plain with 2-year-old & all the rain ! Disappointing beer at the Holly Bush given the quantity & variety on offer ! But nevertheless looking forward to next time.
