I've got two out of date dry powder extinguishers (one ex-caravan, and one ex-boat) you can have them - I've been trying to think of someway of getting shot of them - but you clear up the mess OK ?

and preventing fights with the fire extinguishers

Ok, give me a fire extinguisher and I will use it (or its contents) to prevent fights! I prefer powder or foam extinguishers for that purpose, CO2-extinguishers make the room go cold...

And keep enough fire extinguishers at hand, these things don't work for very long, so if I have to prevent more than just a few fights...


only three weeks now!

Having second thoughts about campervan, it's too large and environmentally unfriendly as it gobbles juice. So me and missus will indoor camp, despite severe misgivings re-the company. So bang goes the inflateable moat. Also add two loud snorers to list of ne'er-do-wells. Will bring polypin of Flagship ale to gathering, perhaps we could all chuck in a pound a pint to add to raffle proceeds? Thats thirty-four and a half quid if you drink the sludge at the bottom.

Further events in hte diary: Friday 8th Feb, 'The Song loft' in Stony present Bill Jones, a lovely lass from Northants who does some nice tunes and stuff.

Saturday 9th, afternoon - The Crown public house would like some tunes and songs while we sample their fine mystery guest beers. Ken at the Fox and Hounds may sell you lunch. Saturday 9th, Robin Chandler and the Howling Tomcats at the Fox and Hounds for those of a blues disposition.

Sunday 10th, 12 noon-3 pm, Open Session in the Vaults Bar, which is apparently 'World Famous', although I don't believe it. Apparently large Scottish gentlemen are required to attend ;-)

I have my kids that weekend, so any assistance in being a responsible adult and preventing fights with the fire extinguishers will be gratefully accepted.

How big is the inflatable moat? If the space is tight for caravan parking I could always bring my 17 foot cabin cruiser, but I would need an inflatable slipway. Mind you from the aforesaid tales of flatulence in the indoor camping section there should be no shortage of inflation facilities - perhaps the Irish & Northumbrian pipers could assist.

Seriously though, does anyone know if there is going to be enough room for all the caravans etc. - I'm planning to try and get there for mid afternoon just in case, Linda (Smith) will come up by train in the evening.

One way of raising money would be to impose silly penalties like Buntingford Folk Weekend used to do - 50p for singing with a finger in your ear - £1 if it sticks out the other ear as well - 20p per death - special rates for battles etc.

Finally Linda's threatening to bring her (now amplified) autoharp - Im thinking about cutting another soundhole in the back so that it's useful for slicing boiled eggs - any other suggestions?

Just reading Max's thank you thread, and it occurred to me that the Stony Stratford skinny dipping, moat digging,hip flask tasting,kazoo blowing, and sleep deprivation fest, needs something more.(SSSDMDHFTKB&SD) I suggest that we can all donate items to be raffled in aid of our favourite web-site, and I'll kick it of by donating 2 bottles of malt whisky. Come on folks, think of all those unwanted crimbo prezzies, dig them out and come on down to the SSG.
Happy new year......Jock

I'm still waiting for the pass but I think I might be able to get there, although vile talk of farting, belching and legs in the air has put this fickle-stomached namby-pamby off indoor camping!

I've had a look at hundreds of postings, got double vision and been moaned at because a colleague wants to get on this machine and I haven't yet found what is in mind for various bits of the weekend. I wouldn't mind knowing in case I can only get there for part of it - can somebody point me in the right direction please.

Be aware! I am now sure I will come!

I just bought the plane tickets.

Liz, I will arrive at Heathrow on 7. Feb (Thursday) at 12:35 UTC, and will depart from Heathrow on 11. Feb (Monday) at 20:00 UTC.

My early arrival is due to my bad experience with flying early on friday morning...

If I may do so, I'd like to stay at your place for the nights, Liz. When exactly I will arrive at your place will be decided later - I might have a look at London first or go out again after putting down my bags or ...

AlanWW, Snuffy: do you want me to smuggle some more snuff stuff or was the stuff I brought to Llanstock too bad?

And one more request: a friend of mine tries to collect all 96 different Euro/Cent coins (8 values, 12 nations). He already has all German and all Austrian coins. If anyone coming to Stony Stratford from any other Euro countries could bring a set of coins. Of course you will get the same value back.

Have just been sampling a bottle of Morgan's spiced gold -slightly different from the standard spiced rum but equally yummy. Also tried something called bacardi 151 ..... definitely something to treat with extreem caution .. it has very warming properties similar to certain things that have been known to come from Micca's infamous hip flask.

My son lives and works in the US, and because he has no credit rating there he is forced to use his UK credit cards. To pay the bills he has to change his dollars into Sterling. I don't know what you peeps think, but I wonder if there is a way that we might pay sterling into his bank here, and he gives dollars to Mudcat/Max in the US. I don't even know if he would be interested, never mind whether it would seem like a feasible idea to you UK Muddies. It's just a thought, what do you think?

Just a suggestion for the Gathering:- in view of Max's appeal for funds for the Mudcat Mudcat Trouble would those attending the Gathering be willing to contribute a small amount towards keeping this site going? We'll then have to work out some way of getting the money to Max - but Gareth has apparently got some ideas about this.

Also seeing that this thread has been revived Mudcat Crafters could I suggest that anyone who has any craftwork for sale bring it to Stony and donate some of the proceeds to Mudcat.
Actually, it need not be just craftwork: old LP's, CD's, books, 21 year-old malts, kittens, sheep, inflatable objects etc, could all be put up for sale or auction.

Meanwhile Max needs cash NOW. I've just managed to open a PayPal account (before I read katlaughing's warning), so I think (and hope and pray!) that that will work. So, lets get going and start looking under the sofa for those odd bits of small change!

Dead Horse, you have clearly been in contact with the LFU's ( little fat uncle or Micca as he is also known)hip flask.My only advice for the future is don't, on account of that 'lighting up of eyes and Cor, that hit the spot' is far more likely to be 'a crossing of the eyes and a Cor, my heart has stopped.'

When you blame Manitas for the alleged inherited behaviour of Phoebe. I assume that the reason for your certainty in this regard, arises from the fact that you yourself have NEVER EVER done any of the things that you accuse her of? We need to know these things, the future of genetic inheritance may depend on your answer.

Please note that Phoebe is also Manitas' child too.. She gets the stubborn, noisy streak from him, as does she the penchant for waving her legs in the air sans underwear, staying up til all hours (gone midnight and she still isn't in bed....), and the bottom noises. The liking for sprouts and the ability to curl her tongue, she gets from me.
