Next Farlington gathering what weekend?

From: Nick

Clearance for the next gathering at Farlington due to the response to last fridays fun.

Any ideas on dates for anyone? Beast suggested Bank Holiday but Ben would have one pretty much anytime - sooner or later (I think he was keen sooner...) A whole weekend is definitely an option if the demand is there - though I sense a little pacing might be sensible to get people past saturday lunchtime ( !! ). I will send a musical remembrance of the weekend to whoever gets the closest to how many pints were consumed on the night.

Look forward to the next one. Same idea - friday through till whenever. Singaround format. And a determined effort to balance singing and playing which I lost control of.

If we sort a date presumably we can then change the subject or start a new thread?

What with August been very busy, fetivals, holidays and that I will start the ball rolling by suggesting the first weekend in september. That is the friday third of sept.

I can slot in any old time, but Fiiley festival is on friday 30thJULY, and whitby is back end of AUGUST. And we must get the infamous jOhn from Hull there next time.
As for the number of pints processed, I reckon 240, based on the fact that I spent 80 bloody quid in the pub that weekend!!!!!!!!!

Sounds good. The Beast should have worked up an appetite by then.

yes i think that this idea could take off, of having a folk club, and then also people that cant make it on the phone singing, you could plug the phone into a speaker so everyone could hear it.

i might be driving by september if i dont kill my instructor by then, so if i am ill come.

im gonna go have a cheese sandwich now... in warbutons white bread with utterly but... sorry this isnt a sandwich site is it?

Well, the fourth usually follows the third.

They both work for BP Mick, I think it's one of those full weekend middle management "bonding/knitting" kind of courses. Outward bound and all that, but in four star acommodation at the taxpayers expense.
Are you out there Dave?

Fear not Mick, Let's have a summit meeting at The Monks Walk sess, and see if we can't take a whole new set of folkies up to FarTington, I bet the hayseeds up there wont spot the difference. Centuries of inbreeding up there has left them with very poor eyesight.

Hello I'm back from board meeting, that should read "I'm back from boring meeting".
As El Tedward said I am on course all that weekend - but I'm quite sure there will be more following the success of the first one.

Mick/El Ted, minor correction to the above. When BP are paying it would be SIX star accommodation, you wouldn't catch us sleeping in a tent pitched in a beer garden.

..and BP is a private not a public company. Anyway, back to the thread....

Spoke to Ben last night and September would be fine. Shall we start another specific thread and start the ball rolling?

Lynne and I hope to come to your session at Beverley, osson, at beginning of August as long as nothing comes up.
