G'day aussiebloke,

I just nipped back to the Andy Irvine thread, where I had posted a blicky to the Australian National Festival's selection of my photographs of the last NFF. I wanted to see if they had posted one of my pictures of Bloodwood ... but no! (They seem to prefer all these cleancut young types ... )

Regard(les)s,

Bob Bolton

cheers

Martin 'aussiebloke' Goreing

PS: Anyone know of a Ted Egan web-site?

G'day Martin,

... Not bad ... but my shot of Bloodwood on the Budawang stage ... complete with glow-in-the-dark Uluru ... is one of my personal favourites from this year's NFF. Unfortunately, the National Festival crew don't seem to share my enthusiasm.

Oh well, I'll e-mail you a copy from home.

Regards,

Bob

I take it that "The Mary River Park" is on the mary river and is half way between Darwin and Kakadu National Park ?

Hi Bruce

Yep, Mary River Park is just where you say it is - follow the link above to the Top End Folk Club web-site where you will find a 'mud-map' to the venue on the 2002 festival page.

Hi aussiebloke

I like the changes you made to the Top End Folk Club website and the Bloodwood picture from the Nationals is brilliant.

I'm looking forward to the Top Half at Mary River, should be lots of fun.

G'day Bob

Thanks for a great pic of Bloodwood - I've whacked it onto the front page of the Top End Folk Club website.

I note the extra mike on the stand for the lagerphone, what a good idea, hafta get me one of them.

Fellow 'catters, Bob is a gem - to find this particular pic - it was negative 365 out of 369! Why are things always in the last place you look...

G'day Again Aussiebloke,

... Of course If I'd remembered that I spent a long time on a totally new innovation ... a database of neg numbers, subjects, venues & dates for the event ... I'd have popped into the database (when I remembered where I put it ...), typed "bloodwood ... and it would have told me:

020401b22 / Bloodwood / Budawang / The Awards / 01.04.02

and I would have been back much faster!

Oh well ... I might remember it next time.

Regard(les)s,

Bob Bolton

G'day aussiebloke,

I think it is another Bruce (old mate of mine, who guested through another thread a few days back, as it happens) and who has reason to know that stretch of road very well.

Regards,

Bob Bolton

Have just attended the Top Half Festival for the first time. Absolutely fantastic - small size, great acts, stupendous sessions plus the warmest reception from the locals. Many thanks for a truly great festival. You should stand very proud.

Regards, John

We've just returned from the tropical Top Half at Mary River Park, out of Darwin - had a FABULOUS time, singing and meeting up with our old Territory Mates - wonderful, generous people!! Looking forward to the desert version next year.
A big THANK YOU! to you all, from the members of Work-in-Progress and Fine Cotton and the Noel Gardner Trio.


(I guess we shouldn't go on about it too much though - I think they'd prefer to keep it "small"!!!)


Cheers! R-J
