Thanks for organising it, Kev.

I had a great time on the Saturday. The Imperial Stout was rather nice. Sensibly, I only had one of those just before leaving (at least, I think I did!).

Hi folks I had a great day I believe a little more organized this year,so role on next year.
I did realize something ( a Lesson to all ) if you cannot control your fingers to play an instrument...be very wary about driving home...That extra half i gave to Pete would have certainly put me in the scout hut. Thanks to all the organizers and look forward to next year.

Ashbourne Derbyshire

You seem to have all enjoyed yourselves. I had a brilliant weekend. We were kept thoroughly entertained from start to finish. All indoors too. There were no long gaps in between concert, and we had to eat on the hoof, but the guests were amazing. Steve Tilston, Les Barker, John Tams, Martin simpson, Coope, Boyes and Simpson, The Poozies, Mawkin-Causley,Keith kendrick and Sylvia Needham et cetera et cetera. Next year, so as not to clash with Ban bury, they are bringing it forward by a week. Could be farewell Tenterden!
Dare you accuse moi of thread drift? Nah.

Well what a great afternoon throughly enjoyed myself. Has for the Scout hut what a Fiasco
that was. No one told me it was in the middle of the bloody woods.I was so pissed I couldn't open the door when we all eventually got there.. any way when we got into the Scout hut after about twenty attempts we couldn't lock our self's in the Scout Hut door wont lock from the inside so that was a right Rigmarole.,
we secured it with a yard broom in the end which Im sure would have kept any hungry creature of the night at bay.

Fiddlefit duo was excellent.
The Rock band in the evening were great guys and played both great covers and there own stuff was very good. well done lads.

I only had one Arse hole who confronted me but he backed down when I told him he would be sucking his Sunday lunch through a straw if he didn't F off i do not know who he was but he looked like Bart Simpson.

The beer was excellent Mark well done I was on the Village Idiot most of the day and that 10% stuff most of the night.

Richard Bridge what is a pair of side-cutters for Christ-sakes?
its title reminds me of a RN Missile system?

Hopefully now the Scout hut has been tried and tested it will be used by Mudcatters next year. be warned it is cold I couldn't go to the Loo till 1800 hrs tonight by which time me intestines has thawed out.
Kind regards to all Pierre







Thanks to Kev the Clogs for arranging the event.
Mark the landlord/ his wife and the great and friendly bar staff of the Crown.
excellent singers musicians.Mudcatters
thanks for Fisheye for lift there/thanks to Ken and Roberta for keeping me company in the Scout Hut and the lift home next day.

Well I think everybody enjoyed themselves!!??

I did!!!

Some very good beers - I stayed on the Imperial Stout and the Winter Bus (that would probably explain why I was pissed by the end of the evening and why Val was in charge of getting me home, feeding me and sorting out why I missed my tiolet completely in my own home!!!) (that's why I love her to bits!!)

I hope those that braved the scout hut were ok for the night.

Had to return at lunchtime today to collect my drum sticks that I managed to leave behind last night. The beers were still flowing, but there were some very jaded looking people (including myself!).

Sheppy Paul and Helen turned up about one o'clock - glad you managed to make it. Apologies that there were no other folkies there!!!

Mark, the landlord, was very pleased with how things went - and thanks you all for turning up. Make a date for your diaries - it will be happening again next year!!! Also, in conjunction with Keith, he will be running a regular evening with Folk bands every six weeks, in the marquee with a suitable selection of beer (I'm sure the scout hut will be available if needed!!)

I'll keep you posted as and when.

So thankyou all.

Regards.

I've discovered that Otford is about the one place that's a doddle to get to from my home. Free bus ride (OAP privilege), then a fifteen minute direct train ride. What's more I can start for home up to seven o'clock.

I'll be there by 11.00am so seven might be a stretch.

Bringing Tanglewood which sounds awful at moment because the Nut fell off after Knockers and I reset it myself which has thrown out the whole set up/action.
Pointless bringing the mandolin the nut on that split down one side so that wont work ever.

Well Im not falling for it. Now then.

(Actully there are some lovely Cave Paintings In Margate Caves Kent that date back to the 17th century.)
Indeed done by bored Smugglers who had Nowt better to do while hiding from Excise Man.

There are some lovely paintings in the Army tunnels at Crockmere Haven East Sussex which were done by bored soldiers during WW2. These include Battleships HMS K.G.V. & Hood.

Theres a rather nice naked lady drawn in the Chalk at
Chislehurst Caves Kent. done by me bored back in the 80s

And there is a Spitfire drawn on the roof of the Plumsted Chalk mines. How the artist got up there is "beyhond me.
I foresee He was without doubt bored out of his tits has to have started such a ambitious sketch.

There are ships of various shapes and sizes to be found scattered around in The Camden Chalk mines. done by bored shelterers during WW2.

All drinks and food in the garden, need to be ordered and payed for in the bar. You will be given a raffle ticket to exchange. Deal - five tickets will get five half pints at £1.25 per half or single tickets will be £1.40.

Will let you know anymore details as and when.

In the bottom left-hand corner of the webpage, where it indicates different modes of transport, just tick the box next to the reefer icon and it'll calculate the extra time required for those that are stoned.

Or click on the beer glass icon and it'll do the same calculation for pissed travellers.

Should you be under the influence of both, just tick both boxes and it'll give you a combined total of the extra time required to complete your journey.

Enjoy your journey, sir!

The Tenterden station is a private line for choo-choo-puff steam train enthusiasts and nowhere connects to national rail.

I gather that it is a long-term ambition to reconnect as a branch line with an interchange somewhere to the West, some time.

Yes Sue, that is the second possible - aim for Knockers (from me), left off A21, then don't turn right to Knockholt Pound. But I fancy the A25. There is a razzle-dazzle route across from Meopham to the back of Brands Hatch that we used to use to go to Farningham in the old days to avoid the Po-Lice (and breathalisers) on the way back from the old Farningham club, lots of fun in a Mini or a Morris Minor but a bit iffy in a bloody great Volvo, and then still the run down the speedlimits from Farningham.

I remember one night coming back from Farningham with my old mate Tom driving my souped-up Minor Traveller. We actually came up the A227, and had given a biker a lift. He said he did not take his Norton up that road as fast as we did it that night. But there are cameras on it now.

Now I know why they left the mesh fencing on the west side of the pond - obviously to prevent people coming from the A21 driving into the pond !

Richard... there are easier ways to go, one is the A21, but am unsure how you would get to it. I suggest you come up M25 to A21 (Orpington turn off.Head towards Orpington) At next roundabout ( Hewitts ) take first exit. At next roundabout ( Badgers mount ) go straight ahead, and down Poll Hill. At the bottom of the hill is a turning on the left marked Otford. 300 yards to t junction(Pilgrims Way) turn left and drive straight into Otford. Avoid driving into duckpond,pub on left. Car park (large and free!) on same side of road, but 100 yards or so beforehand. Hope this helps.

RB I am sure a sleeping bag will be convenient even for you to enjoy
a delightful beer tasting festival. The aches and pains on the floor could be inebriated by sufficient beer.
