Subject: looking for mates at festivals - an idea

Having stewarded the campsite entrance on many occasions and been asked where Flumphfield Morris are on a huge field I got to thinking why don't Morris sides think?

Some put up flags and still they ask. And having been within striking distance of a bamboo mega pole I don't trust any morrisman to understand stress and breaking point of untethered masts. In a gale. Tether them is the answer - three guy ropes, pegged.

So
1) The first territorial to mark their desmene could switch on his satnav and find the Lat/Long page and text all his team. Assuming all they have and can use.

2) The organisers could have a (Google) map of the fields and place a grid on it with a better chance of finding directions. Sides could place their mark on the maps if they were organised enough. If I was on first duty I would be able to do that, it helps with directing people to less populated parts anyway. Maybe I will offer in future depends on the size of the festival I guess.

And you don't have to be a Morrisbod to benefit from the ideas. Plenty of "items" live miles apart and rendezvous at festivals.

Whilst it is perfectly acceptable to go to festivals purely to look for a mate, mating with the WHOLE of the Flumphield Morris Team is not to be advised. Try to be a little bit selective.

You could make an on-line game of it, along the line of Battleships.

Dagnabbit.

I was hoping this was going to be a way to facilitate matchmaking at festivals...

...color coded nametags for single people keeping an eye out for some festival love?

... personal ads posted by preference (Single hetero anglophile female seeks single male who wouldn't be caught dead at a bluegrass show... Single Soprano seeks Single Baritone for mutual shanty exploration...)

Nah, that'd be too...sensible. I know of several romances that started at festivals or music camps. Finding a sweetie who shares your musical passion would be a grand blessing for those of us who've been solo for a long time.

Just think - I was being sensible and - well - all we get is suggestions that Morrismen dance with women - has the ring been informed of this?
