I guess I qualify as a North American, although the title ex Brit Canadian would be more appropriate. I will be in England at this time, unfortunately not able to make your gathering. Our Morris side are dancing at the Rochester Sweeps Fair. So I hope to see any of the Miriads of Mudcatters who will be there instead of here.

Already looking for cheap flights from Cork (!!!). So put me down as a definite (inshallah).


Yes, I'm actually moving by the end of this month. I'll try and integrate into Irish society for a bit now, after having become an honorary German (at last night's party). Am already feeling sad that Cork lost out to Kilkenny at the big hurling match last Sunday, so the basics are there.

Skip, I think that organising the 2004 gathering might have been a thankless job until, that is, someone actually thanks you. It might as well be me. Thanks Skip, for being the best husband that anyone could have wished for. The farm will be available to accommodate a smattering of Mudcatters. This might become the collective noun.

Would love to be there, but won't quite commit yet. See, I'd also like to be in Padstow for Mayday, lots of tradition down there and I'd like to sample it especially as some dear friends (Dave Webber/Anni Fentiman, Ben Campbell, Breezy etc) go there every year. But then again the UK2004 gathering is tempting too. Perhaps I can drive up from Padstow on the Sat afternoon, be there late evening...oh heck, too hard to choose right now. It'll have to be a spur of the moment thing and we'll sleep in the back of my car if we have to. Only eight months of agonising left to do...

Mind you, it's good to be spoiled for choice, I guess.

If anyone is thinking of coming from america/canada etc, the plane might land at London or manchester, there is buses and trains direct to Hull from London, and loads of buses from manchester airport to Hull, then there is regular buses from Hull to Barton area, I think its The East Yorkshire Bus, co. Number 350, its not much [about £5?], but put your name here, and you might get a lift off anyone coming from London or Manchester.I can't say for definete yet wether I am going, but I would like to, and if I do, I wil be happy to give lifts to anyone coming via Hull, ie bus station, train station or ferry place, to exactly where it is.I know its a long way to travel for some people, for a weekend, but if you stayed longer, for a week etc, you could see the local area, there is loads of history in Yorkshire/Linconshire, ie York is nice, and Lincon etc.jphn

Firstly, the location is down to the organiser-Munster (Wolfgang), Brussels (Mooman) Groningen (Letty's home town) The next meeting is not actually in Hull, it is over the river because Greg lives there.It could have been Cleckheaton, but there isn't enough room and accomodation is relatively scarce.

Secondly,Hull is just a rough geographical location for information purposes only. I'm glad some people have COMMITMENTS, because there are many of us who also have commitments, including trying to make this gathering as successful and magnifient as the last three.

For the last few years, check the threads, there haven't been cries and moans from people in europe who couldn't come, just apolgies or best wishes.

Roger, Wilfried, how right you are.

What gets me is the self important-"I can't be there" attitude, as if some of you are more worth than others.Like I've said before, you didn't go to the others,never bothered to organise one, why make a fuss about this one?Everyone is welcome, there's no barrier to anyone, there hasn't been before, there won't be now.

It's up to you.

It's the Mayday bank holiday weekend. It's near Hull, but on the other side of the river.Airports are;Leeds/Bradford, Humberside, or Manchester.(Cheap fares from Jet2, easyjet and Ryanair) Ferries are from Rotterdam or Zeebrugge to Hull, and Newcastle from Imunden (but with a long drive or rail journey) You could land at Harwich and travel north.Railways to Scunthorpe, Doncaster, Hull, Selby,Goole. Motorways. M18/M180 and M62.Accomodation is being looked into and will be posted in due course. Camping facilities, food and drinks, eating out etc are being arranged and explored.

If you can't, won't, refuse, or unable to come,for what ever reason, then wish everyone a good time, send your best wishes and enjoy what you are doing instead.

So who's on the possibles list?

Skipjack

Eric the Viking.

It is of course correct to say you will never find a date that suits everyone... and a tradition as ancient as 4 years... nearly... is worth maintaining, probably. As catsPHiddle said not many UK catters have attended in the past... they are not likely to on Mayday weekend.

I am one of the large band of Hull catters... I just wondered why you have chosen our town?... granted it's quite a nice place ... and under normal circumstances you would find lots of friends here... but on the weekend you have chosen those friends won't be here... well not many of them. It is not just a matter of doing what we want to do...we have other COMMITMENTS... Beardy & I... and I daresay others are committed to Moor & Coast which is run by other friends who we would be letting down. I hope you all enjoy your time in my home town, I am really sorry I won't have what will probably be the only opportunity I would ever have to meet you all. I would suggest that you keep the date and change the venue... to Whitby perhaps!!

Any American Mudcatters coming over for this feel free to get in touch if youre going to be around England fo a bit. As has been pointed out many times on this thread, the date selected is the one weekend of the year when you can more or less guarantee that english folkies won't be able to come, but that doesnt mean we wont be glad to meet people before or after the actual event.

Sorry if my comment earlier suggested I wanted the Eurogathering date to change - I merely stated that it clashed with a lot of things and, as others said, many of the local mudcatters will be away elsewhere. I would not wish the Eurogathering to be combined with the Yorkshire gathering as I agree it stands on its own and Yes it has always been on the May day weekend. If it attracts a different set of people so be it!

But Oakley,don't you want visitors from foreign shores to witness the "Barton beer barrel emptying contest"? Anyway, you could organise another "Son of Euro" in September, and link it to the "Barton Beer Barrel emtying contest". I'm sure Skipjack will enter twice!! or thrice if given the choice or weekly.

If you want to go to Moor and Coast or Upton or Hastings GO

If you want to go to the Euro Gathering that has always been on that date GO.

If you want to go to the Yorkshire Gathering GO.

They are all seperate events and the individual orginisers work hard in set peramiters to achive success, if you cant attend give support and encouragment, don't try and change the date just because it clashes with something you want to do.

Best of luck skip in your planning
