Everything falling into place now, our boat has been moved to near Fradley & we look forward to having a good cruise 'the long way round' via the Staffs & Worcs, then onto my favourite canal, the Shroppie.

Can anyone inform me where the main site will be & is there an info/ticket office to get a full programme?

John Brunker was one of my school teachers at a small Cheshire country school in the late 50s/early 60s. He was a master storyteller and could keep us spellbound for hours with old Welsh folk tales such as the Story Of Gelert's Grave.
He instilled in me a love of words and of stories and I thought that it was fitting that the Salt Town Poets should pay tribute to him in this way. After all, without John and thousands like him in the teaching profession, our lives would be the poorer.

Mr Roscoe did indeed win an award last year; he was the first ever recipient of the Salt Town Poets' John Brunker Trophy.
And, as no-one is allowed to win the trophy twice, we've asked Mr R to join us in judging the second competition. All will be revealed at the Open Mike Night at the Boar's Head on Friday 17th.

Vixen: I would be delighted to meet you, though not on my boat (I just sold it). Come and seee the Boat Band and the Old Rope String Band on Sunday afternoon( I think), and say hello. We are on outside the Kings Lock( a pub by the eponymous lock).
In order to retain my anonymity, I too do not post under my real name(which is actually Greg Stephens, but dont tell anybody). And in 15 years living on the good old "William Wale", we never once painted the name on the outside, in flagrant contravention of BWB regulations (through idleness rather than secrecy, though).

Actually, I believe the likelihood of anything truly malicious is very very slim, but it's better, in my risk-averse book, to be cautious. A more likely event, I suspect, is the sudden arrival of a bunch of rowdy and hitherto unknown musicians on your deck at an inconvenient moment, who just happened to spot your boat and decided on the spur of the moment to drop in for a drop or two and a jam...harmless, but potentially unnerving.

Anyway, enough about posting boat names--I never meant for it to get so involved. People should do what they're comfortable with.

I'm hoping my festival guide comes in the mail soon, and I'm waiting to hear about buying concert tickets from the US...Reynaud and I are counting the days! We go to festivals here, but Middlewich seems a lot more interesting than anything we've been to, what with the "fringe" and the boat gathering. We really have no idea what to expect except that we're pretty sure there will be WAY TOO MUCH to see and do and hear.

I can see both Vixen's & Josher's points re letting people know the name of your boat, but from Josher's point of view, most people on the cut are very friendly, & look out for each other. In my experience there tends to be very little trouble from boaters, despite those boating sites who go on all the time about 'bandits', who in my experience are the same louts who will make problems on land or water. They will just as likely steal cars as throw stones at boaters. Yes we do from time to time have problems with yobs letting boats off moorings or boats being broken into, but these incidents are relatively few & far between.

Also many of the trolls who post or lurk on discussion groups are sad gits who don't have a life & can't face up to the reality of life, so are far more unlikely to turn up & face up to anyone.

Although I've been posting on Mudcat for a while, I don't actually know anyone, except 1 or 2 people locally that I know through the folk/morris scene, so am at the disadvantage that I would turn up & know no-one unless they came & found me.

Joey raises a good point, about how mudcats might meet up...

Locally, a number of us "check in" with Sandy and Caroline, who have their Folk-Legacy booth set up at most of the festivals. We tend to wear mudcat pins and/or t-shirts. We hang out with mudcats we know already, who know other mudcats, who in turn know other mudcats, ad harmonium. FSGW's Getaway has so many mudcats in attendance that it has had a mudcat jam session, an idea that might have some appeal as a "fringe" event.

I have little doubt that Reynaud and I will be able to meet mudcats in Middlewich! We'll be looking for 'em!

Hi Vixen,

Like Josher, I do not post under my real name as I appreciate the "risk" of bad mudcatters - I also would never post my email, address or phone no's. Josher knows who I am ( and vice versa ) and we look out for each other. In relation to posting my boat name - perhaps not such a good idea, however if mudcatters visiting the festival would like to meet up, I don't see how else you can introduce yourselves to them ( yes I know about pm'ing - but that surely poses the same risk ). Anyway enough said, if I have taken a risk, it is my responsibility.
Back to the festival....we now have the following canalside crafts confirmed - fender makers, rag rug makers, spider knot belts, salt carrying demo, Daystar theatre, Horseboat demo, roses and castles demo, gypsy vardo, bodging etc. All is falling into place...

The concern is not about boats, or the people who own them. It's a matter of personal security.

I don't post under my real name--Max knows who I am, so if there's a problem with something I post, he can let me know. A lot of other mudcats know my real name, and know me personally--I count them all as good friends. And Reynaud and I looking forward to meeting a mess of new mudcats at Middlewich.

However, at the risk of seeming to be paranoid, and/or of boring those who either share these thoughts or who have read them here before, here is the issue. Many many people read the postings here. Some register, some post as "guest" and many more people read what is here than register, post or reply. A few of those people may not have the best of intentions toward those who do post, and might welcome the opportunity to know where and when to find them. My concern is akin to the general advisory not to post your email address, telephone number, or directions to your house on the forum.

I hope that clarifies the issue without offending anyone...

Hi Vixen
i still don't understand your concerns about boats and who owns them, as I have said before many boat owners write their names on the side of their boats in very large letters for all the world to see. Also there are a myriad ways that you can find out who owns what boat. Please be more specific with your concerns.
I have tavelled the canals in one way or another for over twenty years and have never had a problem with people knowing that I own a boat and that she is called JENAND.
hopefully I shall be meeting you and AggieD at the Festival and you can see what nice people boaters are.
