They'll burn! We could have a de-ukeing ceremony where they are smashed by being beaten by National guitars and then incinerated. We could do that to the ukes too!

OMG -  et tu Scratchy?

Actually I'm in favour of taking Clarkson out and shooting him on national television. (He could have his Oxfordshire pals join him too.)

Folks,

I just taken the plunge and booked myself and the wife (Rose) in for the Euroweenie gathering 2012. It will be great to see you all!

Great news! Another one to show us up I suppose.

Your wife must be crazy,coming to spend her time with a bunch of old(-ish) men with guitars.

Colm, are you flying in?

Brilliant! The "Craic" ( Irish term for fun...not rock crystals!) starts already.

Better answer these questions in chronological order as I respect the formal Euro weenie traditions;)

NS: I believe the prize EW Brick is an "open" event and with the collapse of the housing market here in Ireland the addition of a free brick  to a house sale could have a major impact on the negative equity position of our property. So I'm seeking the brick in Ernest!

Richard: I have taken the line that "seeing is believing" when trying to convey the magical weekend that awaits to Mr.s Mc. She tells me she is looking forward to hearing some people who can actually play music for a change... that, and a nice glass of Merlot or three.

BH: Fortunately, Mr.s Mc is crazy! Lucky break for me.

We shall fly into Southampton on the Friday. I've never been in that neck of the Forest, so to speak, so I'm looking forward to it big style.

Are you going to hire a car or do you want collecting?

Good news Colm, look forward to seeing you again.... My better half should be coming too. I would suggest for the ladies some good books or stout walking shoes.

Well, I suspect my wife and kids will be around for a short while on Friday morning.  We will probably take them for a lark about in the forest, weather permitting.  As soon as they see bearded men with guitars, I'm sure they will be off though.

Folks, thanks again for the warm responses.

We will arrive on Flight BE385 Flybe at 17.25 into Southampton and depart flight BE384 Flybe at 14.20 on the Sunday. If this coincides with anyone else's travel plans we'd be delighted to hitch a ride and pitch in for the petrol. Drop me a PM if you think it may work.

Books, Shoes,...& ear plugs... or am I just being mean now after everyone being so nice.

Its about 25 miles- an hour at most, so Im sure someone can assist (not me unfortunately, as the wife will have disappeared with the car by then).

Failing that, the train from Southampton through Brockenhurst might be the best bet.  Taxis round there tend to be painful...

If you can get a good deal, hire a car and get your wife as driver. The New Forest is a beautiful area to explore. Otherwise, collection from Brockenhurst is not a problem.

Sounds like loads of wives will be attending this year! Mrs. PP did one year and then commented something like "Once is enough of a load of old geezers playing guitars!"

So glad good looks don't take you through this world."
