Subject: How many UK catters
From: bill\sables
Date: 07 Feb 01 - 08:40 PM

I have just come in from a session at the JUG where there were about 10 catters and I was asked the question "How many catters are there in the UK?" I supose Max would know the answer but I couldn't hazard a guess.
Would it be possible for you all to post to this thread and then we might all have a good idea.
Cheers Bill

There should have been 11 at the Jug!

Sorry I wasn't there last night, Bill, but I've got one of the many viruses that's doing the rounds. (I didn't think you'd want me coughing everywhere!) If the cough's better and the doughwork's on course for the start of the 8 day York outing that starts on 17th I should make it next week. If I don't, it'll be because I am grafting away.

Calling all Near Reading People - what clubs/etc do you get to?

We go to :
The Swan at 3mileX - singaround every sat night - very open and inclusive & encouraging
Lion in Rdg (Readifolk)- folk club (non-smoking) with guest nights + singers nights.
Russ's Country nights at Miller's Arms Caversham (new Country/everything night which I highly recommend - alternate wednesdays, next being 21st Feb)

Also go to a whole bunch of festivals in the vicinity over the summer.

Might be fun to have a M'cat gathering sometime since there seem to be a few of us within reach?

And there's me on the Herts Essex border. I'm on Bill's list of 58.

Looking at the Mudcat Locator it seems likely that there are more Mudcatters around here than anywhere else, apart from the USA. The Locator's got 29 for England, two each for Wales and Scotland, and one in Northern Ireland - for comparison there are 85 marked in the USA.

More of us should maybe put ourselves on the Locator - it doesn't involve putting addresses or anything like that, just town or county - or even country, since the Americans just do it by State, which are often bigger than most countries.

I suggest that we should make a point of flagging up a thread for any folk festivals we are planning to go to.

That makes Two of us who have joined more than once. So Max's figures may not be correct.I enjoyed your wind up about No Smoking but lets not start that again.

So far with those who have posted and those who I know are in the UK the total is 110 UK catters, nine are in Wales and six in Scotland. If Kevin McGrath is right we are beating the Americans by 25. It is, as he says, a good idea to put your name in the rescources locator, all that is required is your name and county don't put your town for security reasons. For those who are new click on the Quick Links in the top right corner of the main page and find Mudcat Recources There you will find an email list, a photo gallery, a profile page and the locator and just add your name, county and UK

Greyeyes and Morticia a quick answer to your question regarding the locator is I'm buggered if I know. When it started we had to send info to bbc but as Pene Azul has now taken over the resorces page I should think you should email him at the blue clicky thing with his name on which is at the top of the resorces page in his introduction

If you want to be recognised at festivals and folk clubs might I suggest you order a mudcat badge from Badger They are about 2" round with "The Mudact Cafe" round the top, The mudcat logo (fish in banjo) in the middle and your name on the bottom. They can be ordered directly from him at john@rincewynds.freeserve.co.uk and they are very cheep. Or you could always get an official MudcatTee Shirt from me. you can see one worn by Max in the Get your TeeShirt advert in the quick links. I get them sent over by Dick Greenhaus.

I'll have a look at where we are all from and try to find a centeral location for the majority. So far there seems to be more catters in Yorkshire and Dorset than anywhere else, but as always some people would have to travel further than others. Then it would have to be a weekend when there are not too many festivals on, and enough accomodation is available in the area including camping and guest house. Noreen came up with a good idea of renting a youth hostel out of season. It would, in fact, be a mini festival without booking guests. Llanfair had the right idea last October in Wales, a little vilage with accomodation and food, singaround in the local pub on the Friday night, Concert in the vilage hall Saturday afternoon, ceilidh on Saturday night followed by late pub session and lunchtime session on Sunday. It was a great success. When I find where people are I will start a new thread and be open to suggestions and ideas,
Cheers Bill

Another way to spot a catter is the tired look in their eyes after spending half the night listning to Paltalk or reading threads after they have come home from a session.

Confirming last nights conversation I'm definitely in for a UK wide 'do'. Between North England and Dorset? How about somewhere like Cropredy - or does someone already use that venue?;-) Seriously - we held a do for people from the North West/North East/Midlands/Berkshire and Bristol - Warwick proved to be easiest and had loads of hotels and other bits of interest.
