Thanks for that Mooman - Peace is looking into charter flights from Europe (probably the UK) and I'm waiting for a reply from the University of Maine re use of a campus. I'll Google universities in Nova Scotia and see what comes up.

I think we need to get an idea of the rough cost per person in order to see what interest there might be. I've never got involved in this type of thing before so would appreciate any input you can give.

I don't mind helping in coordinating from the European side if no-one else with more time offers, having organized a couple of EuroGatherings (always ask a very busy person as they say!).

Out of the university season, I know (from having visited a couple of times) that rooms at one or universities in Nova Scotia are bookable and a university might well be good for other facilities, e.g. performing spaces, spaced for camping.

Peace

Giok - thanks for the great link!!! You may have found me my source for the hammered dulcimer I want.
Comments from anybody on the makers/quality/sound by Rick Thum, Songbird, or TK O'Brien?
At Song of the Sea they actually have 3-4 to choose from that are in (what I think is) an appropriate price range for a 1st purchase by someone who has yet to learn to play the instrument in question. Unfortunately, they don't have sound clips for any of them. I'm looking at the lower cost models. . . obviously!
I know this is serious thread drift - but any comments would be appreciated.
BTW - if I know about is long enough in advance I'd be up for a trip to Bar Harbour to get to meet some 'Catters!
Cheers
PB

I don't have the horsepower to organize something like this, but if it were anywhere within a two day drive of me (up and down the Eastern Seabord of North America, say, or as far west as Chicago) I would be interested. Nova Scotia would be awesome. Another likely area would be western North Carolina... several universities in the area, and the community is very folk-art oriented. Besides being close to home for me :-)

I love Nova Scotia! It IS the way life should be! Maggie and I went up there from Georgetown, Maine on our honeymoon four days after 911. We slept on the "Scotia Prince" out of Portland, Maine during that night crossing. We slept in separate beds because we could not fit in either together. Even the floor was narrower than a bunks. However. we both needed sleep after that great adventure of getting married again and we woke to dolphins guiding the "Scotia Prince" into Yarmouth Harbour. I hope mudcatters will consider Nova Scotia as a place to meet in 2006!

If mudcatters still want to meet in Nova Scotia, I have a plan...Book a flight from England or Europe with a known terrorist on the flightlist from Europe or the Middle East and authorities in the U.S. will put you down in Bangor International Airport. It works everytime. Pick the least expensive flight. From Bangor, Maine it is pretty easy to get to Bar Harbor, Maine via hungry taxi services. There's a lot of taxi services that will give you a discount if you call ahead and haggle. Be discreet or they will catch on that there is going to be a mass migration of people somewhere. Then catch "The Cat" to Nova Scotia! "The Cat" is the superfast ferry to Yarmouth. Rent a car at the terminal and you're in! You can do this all in advance with AAA (Automobile Association of America} for a membership fee.

What do you think?

I've now put this post on both threads.

Sounds like a great idea - I know that there was some talk, after the last Getaway, of arranging a Mudcat meet.

So far as organising is concerned Big Mick's good that way and I would be happy to help out in any way I can.

Based on accessability for as many Mudcatters as possible it sounds as if the East Coast USA is getting to be favourite. Do we have agreement? We will need to scout around for sites, like NOW, to get anything for next year.

Who's really serious about this?

Part one was refreshed, here's TWO.

I noticed the lack of main organizer a long time ago. I wasn't able to volunteer then, so I kept my mouth shut. I still can't volunteer, but I think unless someone can step-up we should just let it go.

I think the where & when will depend a lot on the who & what they can get.

Hull or New Mexico? It's a toughie, for sure, but I'd like to see the same folk as mooman in their natural habitat, and buy a year's supply of Route 66 coffee beans whilst I'm there, so New Mexico has the edge for me. Just.

I hereby begin the campaign to hold the 2006 Mudcat World Gathering (MWG)in New Mexico. Absolutely gorgeous weather, world famous art centers in Santa Fe and Taos, International airport in Albuquerque, short (well, okay, sort of short) drives to Phoenix, Denver, Dallas, San Antonio, etc.

Having attended exactly none of these gatherings, I offer my expert assistance on getting everything together and making all the arrangements. However short I may be on expertise I would make up for in effort and enthusiasm.

the gathering and so on , but I have to start saving money
to come to Novia Scotia it cost me about 1500 hundred Us dollar
just to fly and the rest what is cost of that ? I don´t know
but we´ll see it´s only 2003 now and many things can change
until then.
All the best Skarpi Iceland.
