The further jazz moves away from the stark blue continuum and the collective realities of Afro-American and American life, the more it moves into academic concert-hall lifelessness, which can be replicated by any middle class showing off its music lessons - Imamu Amiri Baraka

Didn't know Lewis was such a sensitive soul. Anyway, keep reeling them in.

I'm in, I'm in....albeit probably as a day boy rather than a boarder........

Now then weenie's just to add that we have pretty much taken all the rooms in the hotel  :)

And, that a typically extravagent program has been concocted for the event. Now, we had to book to include the food we thought we might as well have a communal weenie table certainly for the Saturday night, so any other objections.. suggestions?

Finally, we don't seem to have heard from Natterjack and wonder if he is still out there looking for slimy things under rocks ...

All hail to the apostrophe police!  :)  Maybe you could give a talk at Euroweenie on its proper use in the country blues , Parlor Picker? After Blueshome gets out of detention, perhaps  :D

Guilty as charged and a convicted hypocrite as well. I've a bee in my bonnet about getting apostrophes right. Having said that, I take you haven't had a very busy day?

Anyway, I won't modify the post Stuart. The evidence thus remains on file to remind me and other miscreants. I hope this means I escape writing  500 lines in detention as the writer's cramp would make my playing worse than it already is.

Not worth bothering, as Blueshome will be in jail until about the beginning of June. If he gets early release, I think he should be made to take up the ukulele. Another offence and it will be the b..... - you know what!  >:D

Do we have a meetup time?  I might be away from the keyboard this week- visit to Dorset and househunting in Trowbridge & Chippenham...   

Im guessing we'll amble over from Ferndown mid afternoonish...

NS, there's service. 

The plan was for a communal meal in the evening at say 7pm certainly for the Saturday, and I think the same will go for the Friday night as well. I will get there probably mid afternoonish on the Friday and I understand the "room" is available if wanted it.

The hotel have so far been very friendly (unlike the last...) as seem to want to please, I would guess it may be a little faded but so what if they are happy to have us, we can but try. 

Young Phil has a program of sorts and unless anything else crops up we are, like Thuderbirds... go  :P

I've now been prodded into action so here goes. Sorry if it appears too organised but I'm sure weenies know how to change that.

Friday
2.00-4.00pm. Turn up and have a beer and a strum.
6.30pm drinks
7.00pm Group dinner
8.30pm Lucky(!!!???) dip for Saturday groups. Followed by jam/performance till late

Saturday
Congregate 11.00am-ish
11.30am Bob Long - presentation of NRP and Dave King guitars
12.30  Lunch
2.00pm Short talk by Alan Balfour (Bunker Hill)
3.00pm Lonnie Johnson workshop by Allan Jones (Professor Scratchy)
4.00pm Lucky dip group rehearsals??
6.30pm More Drinks
7.00pm Another dinner
8.30pm Luck dip performances followed by jam/performance till late

Apart from adding more drinks sessions, that's about it but if anyone would like to contribute a short presentation/workshop I'm sure we'll be able to fit it in for the price of a glass of something liquid and white for Richard (not milk!!).

Can't wait.

Particularly drawn to the numerous events listed as "more drinks".

My "short" talk could well take up the entire hour so a good opportunity to either catch up on lost sleep or hurl some rotten fruit. ;D

Seriously, looks like it's gonna be a fun and instructive weekend. Well done the organising team.
