Yes it certainly is still going as far as I'm concerned andI'll check with the hotel just to make sure they have not buggered it up again,  so what about making a few bookings....

And, dare I say I certainly qualify with a new old guitar or two - or three, but don't tell 'er indorrs!

Hey Michael. I have four great new banjo compilation cds which should just about cover our journey time up to Weenie weekend! You?ll be loving banjo by the time we get there.

My computer is now working again and I have booked myself into the hotel.
I will, of course, be bringing my 5 string Banjo's & possibly some other instruments.
Libraries are the traditional location for murders ....
I look forward to seeing everyone again.

Seeing as the sun is currently shining I thought this update might be appropriate to get you all dreaming of a uxorious weekend in sunny Somerset...

As before it's the Webbington Hotel -  http://www.webbingtonhotelandspa.co.uk

Tel 01934 750100

Room rates inc of VAT are -
Single occupancy Bed and Breakfast\Dinner ?85
Double occupancy Bed and Breakfast\Dinner ?110

You must mention WEEKEND BLUES and the dates when you book to get the rates I have agreed.

NOW help is needed - who could do a workshop to keep us all entertained?  And, I could do with a very knowledgeable unisex personage (that's very PC) who could produce the quiz?

All suggestions welcome polite or otherwise.

Booked. I have an idea for an activity rather than a workshop, and I'll just haul it up the flagpole and wait for you to shoot it down. The title would be 'blues ideas in E', and the activity would involve each participant sharing one or more of their favourite moves in that key. It could be a different key, or indeed a different tuning. There wouldn't be pressure on everybody to participate if not up for it, but everybody could/might take something away from stealing others' favourite licks in the designated key or tuning....just an idea...
