Subject: Loughstock 4-score (N. Irish meet)
From: Fibula Mattock
Date: 14 Oct 05 - 12:50 PM

Hello all,

Following highly successful Loughstock I-III Mudcat Gatherings in the lovely setting of Portaferry, Co. Down, N. Ireland, it is now time for Loughstock IV.

However, this is no ordinary Loughstock. This one co-incides with my 30th birthday and Bassic's 50th birthday, so we are combining them to have a grand Mudcatting 80th birthday, namely LOUGHSTOCK FOUR SCORE!

There are lots of details and I have them on a web site - I just have to put the web site on some web space, and as soon as I figure out where that'll be, I'll post the link.

In the meantime:

WHAT: Mudcat gathering and significant birthday celebrations

WHERE: Portaferry, Co. Down, N. Ireland

WHEN: 3rd-5th February 2006 (dates non-negotiable as thats when we were born)

More to follow!!

I second Liz's question: how is your father? Are the legs healing?

Thanks for asking! He's hopping around on crutches inside the house, and has just started a little bit of weightbearing. If he wants to go more than a few metres though, he's still using the wheelchair. We wheeled him right along the shore (and back, as we were feeling generous) on Sunday - my arms are much stronger now.

Now that the Getaway is out of the way I can think about Loughstock now ! I will definately be in on this again , and will be quite happy to share car hire costs with any one who wants to coincide flights to and from , Friday midday-ish and Monday early afternoon - Probably Stanstead - Belfast International . I will start checking flight times and costs -Last year EasyJet were a good deal !
Glad to know your dad is getting there Fibs , and will no doubt be in fine fettle for February .

Further info - At the moment Easy Jet are doing return from Stanstead for £35.98p inclusive which is what I will probably go for , with a hire car for about £80 , so if any one is flying in to Belfast International around Four pm on Friday and leaving shortly after mid day on Monday , let me know and we can share travel !

Having not picked my fiddle up in many, many months I had it out last night while the spag bol was stewing and managed a few rounds of "le canal en octobre", and very octoberish it was too.

Hostel up and running to my knowledge, love to see yous there, might even get a bit of dancing in (having become an avid set dancer over the past year).

Will talk more about it soon, promise, but things are chaotic at the moment as it's only a few weeks into term and I'm frantically trying to stay on top of things...

Don't go changing!

My friend in Scotland wants to go. I just might be able to make it. Tickets from the US are cheap that time of year (everybody else wants to go some place warm)and we can get from Glasgow to Belfast on Easyjet for around 35 pounds each. But is this a sure thing, 'cause I think I'd better book soon. Those Easyjet bargain fares go fast.

Really, I though EasyJet was the way to go and 35 pounds sounded pretty reasonable. There is a deal that includes bus from Glasgow and Ferry and it is also around 35 pounds, but takes a long time. Are there other airlines to try? I only know Easyjet.

Fib, I've been actually thinking of this one as a go, since my ancestors come from Newtonards, but I can't seem to find any Aer Lingus flights out of Baltimore (BWI) and I really hate NY. I will be checking on Dulles (DCA) but even that is a major hassle. If you have any info on cheap flights out of the DC/Baltimore area let me know. Also I would be interested in splitting a rental car out of Dublin and back if you know of anyone going that way.

Say hi to Ella from me!

Try this site http://www.sidestep.com . They have plenty of options from BWI to Dublin although they aren't direct and I didn't see any Aer Lingus. Belfast is a lot closer to Portaferry, but the airfare is more expensive. Sidestep searches all the other travel websites and pulls in all the options. I've had very good results. Good luck.

Hi Claymore...

How's things, a bit dubious about your past history with hire cars I'd like to warn everyone that all of Ireland is not safe... :-)

Not sure if I can go - erm... I've not told anyone on here yet, but I'm actually getting married next year and have to save up some mula/money/magic beans for that.

Will see what the winds bring me and if I can persuade the other half.

Hallo anyway, from one moore to another - though soon to change.
