Hiya Bill

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.

Cheers

I keep mentioning digital tradition and the mudcat cafe at the Harbury (Warwickshire) monthly folk club, but so far don't think anyone else has looked. It's a good club though so if you haven't found it! I live in Coventry and am a member of a Border Morris side calle Plum Jerkum.

Any local catters welcome to contact.

Kris, no age restriction to being a youth hosteller, and I think only the person booking has to be a member. They allow alcohol these days, and you can bring your car! I'll find out more and post details.

Well if you wanted to meet at a festival may I suggest Warwick which is central to everyone -is held in July so plenty of time to prepare and hopefully get good weather -is a great festival anyway with good facilities and if we all get fed up with each other we can piss off down the pub!!!

Dear KingBrilliant

Don't get out as much as I would like, but occasionally go to Fleet (used to be a 'Pig in the Field' regular before I had kids!) I will be going to see Fran Woods at Readifolk on Sunday though. 3 Milex sessions sound interesting.

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.

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

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.

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

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
