Subject: UK catters Please Read
From: bill\sables
Date: 07 Jul 01 - 10:10 AM

I have compiled a list of catters in the UK from the "How many UK catters" threads. The sole purpose of this thread is to find locations of members to try to organise a UK gathering which would be central for all.
Some of you who have given locations have asked who else lives in your county. I can post a list of mudcat names and counties but I don't want to reveal your locations if you want them to be kept secret. Please PM me if you don't want your mudcat name revealed in a county list and I will just put you as "One Other".
Cheers Bill

Well geographically Harlow's Essex - but for practical purposes it's more Herts, because that's how the lines of communication run. But that's likely to apply to people living in a town on the border of any big county.

But it should be a handy list.

(Mind I've always thought the UK is an irrelevant geographical unit for this sort of purpose - either Great Britain or the British Isles would be more relevant.)

Oh, by the way, I passed one part but failed the second part of my bike test, so I can legally ride upto 33bhp with L plates, until I take my test again, hopefully at the end of July.....

Watch out - I have to get a bike before September to make it worth while......

What's the second part of the test? How to do wheelies?

Whitstable - I think we may have met. I lived there long enough.

I lament the demise of the Folk Club at the Duke of Cumberland.

Extempor sessions were occasionaly held in the East Kent when Dick Bird was Landlord - I got thrown out of there for the following spontanous verse of Crawshaw Bailey

"Oh the Landlords name is Dicky,
And his singings rather tricky,
It is very sour and flat,
And his beers a lot like that !"

"Have you ever saw,
etc.

Joshing apart, have a word with Jullian Spurrier of the Labour Club in Belmont Rd., I suspect he or Hazel may be happy to accomedate a Folk meet.

Don't forget that geographical centre may not be the easiest to get to..... it's easier and cheaper to go to Scotland by train than it is to get to Devon, and probably only a few hours longer..... it took me 4 hours to get to Dorset by train, it took only 6 to get to Durham, four times the distance!!

Wildlone, I knew Sherborne well at one point. Ever go over to Batcombe Down? Maybe next time I'm down, we'll get together.....

The first part of the test was learning to ride the thing, and passing a Compulsory Basic Training test. This means I can ride it with L plates, but not on motorways. The second part was like a driving test, to dispense with the L plates and let me on motorways. I failed that, simply because I haven't had enough experience on the roads. Yet.

There are at least 6 other 'mancs' not mentioned as well - unless thay have PM'd directly.

Out of interest, when looking for a venue for an 'England wide' event we decided on Stratford on Avon and it worked well. Lots of Accom. as well. Not as good for the Scottish contingent though. I would, of course, recommend Manchester as being the centre of the universe if we want to count everybody;-)

Cheers

Geordie Broon has an idea of exclusivly renting a youth hostel out of season for a gathering, it would probably only cost about £10 per person for a weekend plus food. He mentioned a medievel castle with about 70 bedrooms and large venues for ceilidh, singarounds and sessions. Dinner is about £4 and breakfast about £3. I think it should be somewhere within easy access from either the M6, M1, or A1 but wherever it is it will probably be after the festival season.

Earlier this year we went to a festival at Moira in the heart of the New National Forest. It is just off the east end of the M42. Nice place and pretty Central, although own transport I think would be neccassary. Other than that York,s not too bad a place to get to. Keith

Not a meet in the middle of summer Bill, I ain't usually here. October is Llangstock, so September or Novemebr sounds good.Or february to cheer us up in the middle of winter. We could burn a boat! And have fire dancers to go with the belly dancers and chase sheep before they get into lambing season. We could watch horses at it (well Pat and I could)

How to find the central spot for everyone.

Cut out a map of the UK (Big) find it's centre of gravity-somewhere about Huddrsfield (but some clever bugger will do it and tell you exactly where it is)I think. Put an X on it and meet there-He he.

Cambridge. Which is usually in Cambridgeshire, last time I checked.

For those of us who don't mind towns being specified, any chance of sticking that town opposite our names? If you just specify "Yorkshire" for instance, that could be a 3-4 hour journey from one side of the county to the other. It'd make it easier for meeting up with other ppl.
