Subject: Loughstock II (Portaferry 2004) anyone?
From: Fibula Mattock
Date: 02 Oct 03 - 07:30 AM

Hi folks,

Following this years success, interest has been shown in holding another Loughstock in 2004 in Portaferry, Co. Down, N.Ireland.

What with the Eurogathering in Hull9 just a few months after, I can understand if people are reluctant to commit to a Norn Ireland gathering, but if there's enough interest I'm happy to go along with it.

For those who couldn't make it, the 2003 gathering was held in February and a fine time was had by all in Fiddlers, Dumigans and Barholm. This year, with a bit more notice, I might even try to get a bit of dancin' thrown together.
Suggested dates: 30st January - 1st February 2004, or 6th - 8th February 2004 (both around about my birthday, which is my main excuse for going home).

Please register your interest in this thread and we'll see if we can make it happen. If so, I'll put a real and proper website with all the details.
There's some photos to check out the 2003 happenings, and read a thread about what went on.

Strewth, Terri, didn't know you were to wind'ard of me. I spent a very happy 44th at LoughStock 1 presenting an icing workshop, so be prepared. I still have warm gooeys for Guru for being so thoughtful to come armed with full bakery requisites, and in tribute to her, I have retired from cake baking at the pinnacle of my career.

Letty, are you for or against mixed dorms?

Most independant hostels try not to mix males with females in dorms, but if there are only beds in a dorm for the opposite gender you will get in there...

Youth hostels (An Oige/YHANI) are more strict with separating...

As I have not stayed in the hostel in Portaferry, I do not know their policy.

the hostel was wonderful. They had a couple of single rooms and a couple of double rooms. The large rooms with multiple single beds were also nice. They tried to put same sexes in the rooms however I think they asked preferences of the people staying there, I think we had single sex rooms last year. But if enough of us are going we will probably be hiring the entire hostel!!!

You fool Andy-you have to smuggle them in. You tell them they are hippies dressed in sheepskin coats.And maybe for some of you the dorms started off as single sex, but there were doors opening and closing. Not in our dorm though...We had Alan wwwwwww all to ourselves, me and skip(he he!)

I don't think it will be a probelm Letty you should have some choice available.
