Subject: Loughstock, Norn Iron gathering 2007
From: Fibula Mattock
Date: 08 Sep 06 - 04:47 PM

Hello all,

The lovely Giok and the equally lovely Leadfingers have been asking about Loughstock in 2007 (which I am led to believe is being christened 007 - as witty as expected, but slightly misleading as it'll be the 5th one).

Anyway, I've just moved to the charmingly idyllic and pastoral environs of East London and am a bona fide Oyster card owner which I believe qualifies me to make rude remarks about all you provincial types who live somewhere like *snort* Hull. To cut a long story short, the hugely crippling rent I now pay means that finances - and new job reponsibilties - may curtail my February wanderings, but there's nowt to stop you going to Portaferry on your own - you should all know the way by now.

Dates suggested are 10th Feb or so, which sounds just grand, and I'll leave you to argue with yerselves over whether or not that clashes with naked morris sides at dawn (oh no, wait, that's Eurogathering!). So yes, please plot and plan, and I will tease you with the will-she-or-won't-she make an appearance and play one and a half tunes badly.

Loughstock 4-score
Loughstock III
Loughstock II

It's 007 as it's licensed to thrill, but not to lock out innocent limping old men!
So all those interested in going that weekend, please let me know, and we'll work out a cunning plan [no turnips]

Hi Khatt - Wapping (the estate bit, not the posh warehouse conversion bit, can't afford the yuppie lifestyle on a lecturer's salary, more's the pity). Once I get properly unpacked and settled I'll have to meet up with all the Catters inside Greater London!

I'll try and get to Portaferry too, although it's my family's turn to get me and Frank Mills for Christmas, so returning in February makes for quite a lot of time in Co. Down!

When you've decided you're coming, and as you get your bookings done and your flights booked, perhaps you could give the details to me, then there will be an overview, if we need to co-ordinate transport in Ulster. Date and time of arrival in Belfast should do, number of party, and any travel arrangements made, like hiring a car and space available therein if possible. Those arriving via Stanstead might need to coordinate that end, but let us know what you arrange.
Do remember how much space instruments can take up in vehicles!!
Thanks

Linda at Barholme said it's best to book now because she is already getting some reservations for February. It would be better if Barholme is completely taken over by folkies so we will have the run of the place!

It's a 3½ hour trip via Edinburgh with Flybe, and they don't fly on the two days I want to go and come back on Frank. Bit of a difference from a hop of less than 1 hour from Inverness.

After Leadfingers' notification on another thread I'm thinking of coming along--I looked at some photos from a previous event and it looks like a lot of fun. I need to discuss this with the people I play with, in case there's something on that weekend, so won't be able to confirm for a week or two.

What's that instrument Mooman is playing in the photos--is it a small banjo (I'd love something like that!)?

Is anyone else coming from Dublin?

Cheers, Don Conlan

I don't know what photo you were looking at, but Mooman has a lovely octave mandolin, and that is the most likely candidate.
