I've booked a flight an hour ago. I shall arrive on Friday and leave very early on Monday. It's crazy, but that's the only way I can fit it in my weekly schedule.

I'd love to stay where the others are staying.

More information later, because I'm off now for a two-weeks vacation on another island in the Atlantic, much more south.

Looking forward to see you guys.

I agree that it would be good for us all to stay in the same place and I would be happy with the self-gathering place.

I could book the accommodation for anyone travelling with us in a group, Bill, but those who might be arriving or leaving at different times would be better contacting the self gathering place directly.

For those who are interested, Bill and I are planning to fly out from Manchester on the Friday afternoon and stay until Wednesday morning but, as I said earlier, I won't be booking anything until there are at least 6 non-Icelandic Mudcatters confirming their attendance.

As I see it, for those who have posted to the thread this year, up to now we have:
Noreen and Stewart who have booked their flights;
Bill Sables, Mouldy and myself are probables;
Wolfgang, Zen, and Leadfingers are possibles;
Karen k has shown an interest.

I had another reply form the Hliðardalskóli selfgathering place and they confirm that they will supply bedding and all the kitchen facilities I mentioned, so you don't have to ring them Skarpi.

To all:   
Is anyone else ready to confirm their attendance beyond the two that Skarpi had on 16 February ?

Has anyone decided on accommodation yet ?

45 km ? Not exactly walking distance then!

According to Noreen:    Car hire looks VERY expensive though- Budget want to charge us £2700 for a week!

Is there any public transport?

Perhaps a hotel closer to where the action is might be better.

I know what I was trying to say, but on re-reading yesterday's post, I don't think I said properly what I meant.

…….would be happy with half a dozen or so.    ………………. Skarpi, if you can definitely say that the event will go ahead, I will say yes, I'll be there.

I think that you need a minimum number of non-local Mudcatters for a viable international gathering. Local participation will, of course, add greatly to the occasion but generally tends to be on a more ad-hoc basis.

Last year, the number of hopefuls from abroad went steadily down until we only had two plus some friends. They, quite reasonably, reviewed the situation at my request and decided it would be better to call it a day. In the end, we had a quite delightful weekend with UK 'Catters from our region but their commitment came after the decision had been made for our foreign visitors.

If you get at least 6 non-Icelandic Mudcatters to commit to joining the gathering, rather than probable/possible maybes, then I will be one of them. Otherwise, I will be on the list of probables.

The later we meet the commitment level, the more difficult flights etc. will be to arrange and thus the more I will move from the probable to possible list.

Come on Mudcatters. I want to go to Iceland.

Trying to organise last year's gathering has made me a bit cautious about committing hard cash until I knew if this gathering was a likely to go ahead. Although we never quite justified the "Euro-" prefix last year, what I did learn from the weekend was that the quality of attendees is far more important than quantity and so would be happy with half a dozen or so, providing I knew that they weren't going to call off just before the event.

Noreen & Stewart have already booked, and Bill Sables has contacted me about arranging travel. Others are looking promising. Skarpi, if you can definitely say that the event will go ahead, I will say yes, I'll be there.
