Sinsull-

Oh, dear me, the mill is running fast!

My suggestion is a minimum lead-time of three months for planning and publicity, which would place the event in November which unfortunately is a marginal month for a festival. So maybe it best be done in mid-October; no sane organizer wants to compete with Halloween.

I'd be happy to bounce this off Roll & Go. It would be real fun to work up some mill songs, and some general drinking songs which we already know a good many.

Shove around the grog, boys,
The chorus around the room;
We're the boys that fear no noise
Although we're far from home!

Cheerily,
Charley Noble
