Thanks gent's it's beginning to really take shape, if my maths are correct that's 8 out of 10 rooms - is there anybody else we can persuade to come along and enjoy the fun?  Meantime I'll take a look at previous attendee's and see if we can rattle a chain or two

Hopefully PP and Phil will be able to partake next year - of course PP could still do the quiz.. and Phil the program if he felt so inclined!  Who's got the brick, shall I find a lump of Bath stone instead?

Time somebody else did a quiz or equivalent fun (?) event. What about the "youngsters" Simon & Andrew. They've got nothing better to do....  8)

Well- I lack the knowledge and the book-shaped resources that some or our more senior members have...

But I'm willing to have a crack at knocking up a quiz. 

Any non euroweenies with cracking questions- do PM me!

I'm thinking to use the format of "Take me Out", or perhaps "Pointless"  ;)

Slim, good news I was almost reduced to doing one myself, I did do them in the early years and rather exhausted my limited suppy of questions!

Now have we anybody who is willing to do a workshop or talk or something....  perchance the Prof may have disected another famous names's musical style he could teach?

And while I'm here, are there any more takers out there for a room, I think we have two left of the quota.

I'll cobble upa program of sorts.

Can't think of a workshop topic off hand. If anyone has particular wishes I might be able to cobble something together. Let me know. Otherwise we might have to make do with more general playing time, which would be good too.

I dont have the encyclopaedic knowledge of most of the Weenie folk so couldnt do anything historic , factual, player styles etc.
 Im not sure if this would "fit" with Weenie style but I have learned  / discovered  some generic guitar playing  stuff over the years that I drop into tunes I do, like my box of playing tricks that I'd be happy to share for example, the range of 12 bar turnarounds? But you may already know them...?
Anyhow I could pull together a shortish (15 - 20 minute?) session on that if people would find it useful?
Let me know. Mike

Sounds good (metaphorically) to me Mike, please do it.  I must confess my immediate thought was of the Professor, soley because he is the Professor and has always seemed to be able to effortlessly pull a dissection of some famous players style out of the bag.

Now I have had another (polite) suggestion passed to me and I'll work on that for the big event!   

It doesn't look as though we are going to fill the last two rooms at the hotel, so be fair to them as they do seem to get busy I thought maybe in a few days unless somebody else wishes to join us I would let them know they are not required - any thoughts?

Just checking we are all set and raring to go -  I have booked us in for a communal meal on the Saturday night and they have confirmed we do have a function room.

There is still time to come up with a musical gem to fill a short spot on the Staurday if anyone is feeling in the mood... I must go and cobble up a timetable and also find a lump of Bath stone  :D

Dear Richard

If it would be of any interest, I could do a spot on Crossnote ( Dm ) tuning.

Kind Regards

Well let's hope it goes to plan.

I have had the "aural guess the player" quiz epic roadtested and been told it's not as bad as I feared, maybe I'll post it here after the weekends fun and then others can give it a try  :D

I have to say it won't be the quite same without PP or Phil in attendence.
