First thing you got to remember, there ain't no money above the fifth fret - Larry Barnwell, a regional sales rep for the Martin Guitar Company and a good flatpicker, when asked by a potential customer, a fingerpicker, whether he should buy a 12- or 14-fret guitar

Yes I should be there, however caveat is that I was supposed to be at Blues Week this year but work through in a spanner about 2 weeks before.

Oh, go on! You know you can't resist it. I'll even play ukulele with you (or not, if it encourages you to come).

Unless there is the possibilty of a transatlantic visitor that another date might suit, it looks  like we are on, I'll ring next week and confirm say ten rooms.

And as PP said earlier of course all weenies from Europe are of course welcome, so do have think about it we'd be delighted to see you  :)

Euroweenie 2012 is now fixed for the weekend Friday 20 April 2012 through till Sunday 22 April 2012 at thr South Lawns Hotel, Milford-on-Sea, Lymington, New Forest

Amazingly enough boys, girls and weenies the hotel is prepared to put up with us yet again and I provisonally booked ten rooms as last year.

PLEASE book direct with the hotel Tel: 01590-643911 and be sure to say it's the blues weekend to get the correct room rate. If you ring in the afternoon you stand more chance of speaking with Sue who I have been dealing with and understands where it's at - whatever it is  :-X

Bed, Breakfast & Dinner for double room ie 2 occupants @ ?130 per night
Bed, Breakfast & Dinner for single occupant @ ?80 per night  

This website has pics of the hotel, which proves the camera does lie   ;D  Do NOT use the booking agency on this web page but instead book direct as above.

That's about it folks, it would help if you could post here just to say you have booked, otherwise if I don't see you before I shall look forward to next April!

Thanks for the sterling work  sorting the hotel out Richard. We'll get down to a programme in the New Year. Please PM myself or Richard if you have any suggestions (about the programme PP!).

I'm booked and I gotta go!

As suggested by Blueshome, I have spoken to JC Grimshaw about the possibility of his attending on the Saturday, hopefully with his sister Angelina. He's interested (although he already has a gig booked for that evening!) and would possibly do a lap-slide workshop or something else if it's what people want. Anyway, I'm seeing the Grimshaws in just over a week's time and will discuss further with them.

I've been trying to drum up interest from mainland Europe Weenies on the WC Facebook page. Pan and MuddyBuddy have expressed lukewarm interest. Clearly it's more of a financial commitment for them, as they have to travel further. It would be great to see and hear them and any other Euroweenies.

I hope to see you all in April.

 Meanwhile, I've recently returned from a trip to Mississippi and Arkansas and I've put some photos on Flickr at http://www.flickr.com/photos/boblong/sets/72157627947071282/

A summary of the story is on the "news" page of my website at www.bobalong.co.uk
