Subject: Ireland Mudcat meet: Loughstock III
From: Fibula Mattock
Date: 24 Aug 04 - 11:31 AM

Some people have been asking, and I am happy to reply: okay!

Venue: Portaferry, Co. Down, N. Ireland (home of the previous gatherings)

Dates: tentatively Fri 4th - Sun 6th February 2005

Brief description: Great place, and hopfully even more music this time round as there's some well-established sessions there these days. Come along, meet up with other members, guests and anyone else in the vicinity. Play music. Sing songs. Participate in some interesting culinary activities. Drink Guinness.

One thing - there have been requests for separate sessions in terms of songs and tunes... It might be an idea to do this on one of the nights just so as everyone gets to do their thang.

T'would be great to see everyone again, with hopefully some new faces too. Think of it as a warm-up for the ever-fantastic Eurogathering. No 57 quid charge, and a distinct lack of whelks, though.

date corrected per request - joeclone

Oi, Lard Skipjack of 'Umberside - the date is non-negotiable unless you are willing to pay an administration fee of 57 pounds. I have checked the calendar and the toad licking thing isn't til the following weekend (unless you're referring to the Yardley Gobion Toad Liking Festival - that might indeed clash, but shouldn't be an issue to a whelk-fancier like yourself).

By the way, Dumigan's back room has been done up beautifully and is all clean and cosy and cushy and lovely and just ripe for the playing.

They haven't ruined the shithouse by roofing it, have they, Fibs? That is the only khazi I know with a satellite dish on an inside wall with an unemcumbered view of the stars. It is a tad rusty from the rising steam, but it adds to the character of the Dumigan's Lavatory Experience. I even rang and woke Oaklet in the early hours so he could enjoy live commentary.

If Skarpi comes he'll only have to row south for a few miles, so it'll be easy for him to get there.

And Richard it will be great to see Pat again, as she didn't make Barrow last May.

Skipjack, I remember you ringing Oaklet. There we were with two intertwining streams of glowing fluorescent processed orange and Guiness with the stars above us and you spoil the moment by ringing someone else!! When I said ringing, I meant on the telephone-stupid!

Right, listen up!
Upon arrival, participants will be herded into one of two groups: those carrying instruments externally and those carrying theirs internally. Those with external music-making equipment will accordingly be shepherded into a cosy barbed-wire enclosure where they will be branded with a big "T" (for tunes) on their forehead, and will spend the rest of the weekend plucking forlornly at said equipment in a melancholy manner. Those who prefer the dulcet tones of the human voice will be penned into a seconding holding area and branded with a large "S" (for songs) and can while away the remainder of their visit raising their voices in tuneful protest. Those who can both play AND sing will be pelted with shaky eggs by both groups silmultaneously (better start ducking, Terry!).

Skipjack is always plucking his instrument, he also plays with his chest organ as well.He tells me he's looking forward to the barbed wire. I told him that he'd only get a little prick from it. He replied that he'd put a little prick on it, but I didn't understand that at all.

I could sponsor you. Or maybe you could ask them if Pat can sit on your lap, so you'll only need one ticket.

No takers from stateside? I think InOBU certainly should make the effort, if only to admire my splendid new chanter.

"Haste to the wedding"-you've got a great website!(Will ye be flogging yer CD?) Please be gentle with us who are crap players, but if you give DADGAD lessons, you'll be more than welcome to sit on Skipjack's knee while he plays with his instrument.

Richard. I've decided in the interests of economy, to fly to Belgium, and get one of your cheap seat returns, as it's£57.00 from here. How does that sound?

Skarpi-it would be great to met you, Mrs skarpi and yer band. I can't swim, or else I'd help you row. Skipjack has a boat though, so he could sail up and get you.I've heard that he's often looked for the north west passage.

And, I have had it confirmed that Skipjack does have greasy plums.

Just got an answer from Barholm:


I am in a bit of a dilemma - you will remember that I am in the throes of
acquiring funding to refurbish the house, I need £200,000 and I have
successfully acquired £180,000, but the deadline is that the work commences
before the end of the year. The work is going out to tender as I write this,
but by the time the tenders come back and the grantors agree it, it will
probably mean a November start, and it is estimated that it will take 12
weeks to complete (I am closing the house down during this period). I
cannot guarantee that it will be re-opened by the time that you all wish to
come over.

On the other hand if the tenders do not come in under budget the work will
not get done, and I would be able to put you up in February.

Now you see my dilemma. Do you wish to wait and see what the tenders bring
in, of is there any chance you can change the dates until March. That way
you could probably be my first guests in a brand new refurbished house.

Let know your thoughts.

Fibula: I got the same response from Barholm as MudGuard, which certainly poses me a dilemma too. I am keen to come again (along with Sandy) BUT I do not think that I can afford the extra cost of a B&B. I feel that it would be the last straw on the cost of the trip.
Including B&B, car parking at Birmingham Airport, cheap bmibaby flights to Belfast International Airport at off peak times, car hire (incl insurance excess waiver and petrol) and spending money for the two of us, the total comes out at a minimum of around £450 and it starts to get too expensive for me, a poor pensioner! All together now "Ahhh"!!
However, unlike Leadfingers, mooman & MudGuard, I have not yet booked the flights, so I await your advice on whether you will be:
(1) sticking with the February dates nomatter what (but possibly considering alternative cheaper accommodation, such as large self catering houses*, if Barholm is not available?) or
(2) looking at a change of date to March, as suggested by Linda at Barholm (but that would obviously mean extra costs for those who have already booked flights!).
Perhaps it would be best to wait and see whether Barholm's tendering arrangement actually results in the work will be carried out this winter. If not, I presume there should be no problem!
"For I am free** to go abroad ...!"

For instance, I see from the Ards Borough Council Accommodation List that there are three cottages at Barr Hall Barns which could put up 12 people but I have not contacted them yet to check availability and whether they would do a long weekend, rather than a whole week.

Linda just answered:

Thank you for replying to my email. Tenders are going out within the next

Let's hope, in the kindest possible way of course, that Linda's plans don't materialise. But if they do, maybe Linda could offer advice about any possibilities for indoor camping, and if that's in short supply then I'd gladly settle for outdoor camping. (Which would mean White Tiger settling for the same, but maybe not so gladly.)

Either way, I think those who have booked already can be assured that enough local musicians can be rustled up to ensure some cracking sessions on the original dates.

Alan, are you anywhere near any of the National Express services to Birmingham airport? Even rail could be cheaper than car-parking fees, but maybe you live way out in the wilds. As it gets nearer the time, it's more than likely that I or someone could work something that saved you having to hire a car. (You may be big, but your instrument is small!)
