Can you believe the efficiency  :o  I have actually provisionally booked ten rooms at the Webbington for the 2017 Euroweenie fandango on the 21st and 22nd April 2017 (Friday and Saturday).

The B&B room rates are the same as this year, but to clarify matters it does now say to include dinner, ergo -

Single occupancy    ?85.00 per night

Double\twin   ?110.00 per night

Now, if you are really keen there is no reason why you should not book now is there?

And, if by way of encouragement I'm guessing that next years event will be the about 10th and should be celebrated, so why don't a few of you from foreign climes or across the Atlantic splash out (ho ho ho) and come over and join us?

Good man Mike, you've reminded me as well  - have you tried booking yet?

I will check with the hotel to make sure they still have our booking for next year, unlike this year where it got lost in favour of a wedding until I had a wobbler...

As for Weissenborn, I have to admit to getting one as well, it's a lot lighter to carry about than a reso and if you do get one we could have Weissenborn owners club meet and bore everybody to death comparing string sizes et al...

Oh Gawd, you as well!

I just hope you know what size strings you have it on then otherwise we in owners club will have very little to talk about...

I'm working myself up to committing to next year's gathering. I missed all my friends this year and think I really need to make an effort. I can again take endless pictures of geezers young and old playing guitars.

Be delighted to see you there PP, but do careful working yourself up at your age...

Now I have just checked with the Webbington ( Tel 01934 750100 ) and they have actually got it right this year and are holding 10 rooms for me, I realise it's bit early and Father Christmas has yet to deliver that new guitar, but if you want book in so you can show us that new guitar, then go for it.

Will be booking soon! That fine chap, Mr Shipman of the New Forest Collective has bought my Weissenborn copy. On the strength of the sale I bought a new wide-angle lens, so I can get all the dancing girls in my photos of the next Euroweenie event (you did book them, didn't you Richard??).

Excellent news PP, but very sorry to hear about your guitar sale. I assume you won't be joining the Weiss Club night out then, that's a pity as that's when I had the dancing girls booked.  Ah well, anyway I'm sure Mr Ship will want to watch them perform in your place, especially the one with the snake.

Nice of  Adrian_P to show some interest, he would be more than welcome to bring his toy and\or guitar, we could even have a Weiss Trio and that would would really scare those uke chaps!

And, on a more general note It's time to start booking that hotel men, the luvly ladies on reception are just waiting for your call....

Evening all,
I will book my place tomorrow, just waiting on PeteGabony to let me know if he's able to come along.
Cheers, Mike
Ps PP i think i could negotiate ex owner Wssnbrn status for you to get into "the club", particularly if you bring the dancing ladies...is Anna Conda still wriggling?

Good idea, I think 'ole snake hips PP would like Anna Conda, of course he'd have to do another one of his solo turns as well, perchance say Black Snake Blues?
