This years indoor camping will be an improvement on last as the toilet has now been fixed so no more urinating on the inside walls gents. There will be a special place supplied in a corner of the main marquee for hanging banjos...this may of course become a ritual and is a lot less smelly than burning them. The Bodhran race on the fast flowing river Blither will take place again this year...it was so appreciated last year when all the bodhrans exept one went floating away at breakneck speed.
We will be holding a meeting on the Friday night to discuss the "Collapse of the Folk Clubs" thread on Mudcat. Anyone who fears fiery female journalists is advised not to attend as it may make them a little queezy and spoil their weekend.
Anyone who wishes to fawn over performers will be allowed into a special 'viewing' booth in the main tent where they cannot be admonished for looking. If however anyone (particularly the men and more particularly the backwoodsmen) admits to fancying one of the women (or men for that matter) they will be ejaculated (or is it ejected) from the tent.
Further details to folow.

Farmer Jones..a man outstanding in his field, will be out standing in his field waiting for the outdoor campers to arrive from Friday 11am until 6pm. If you need eggs or milk you can order them from him after he has gone. Mrs Jones will be playing the melodeon again this year and hopefully no surprises like the chick that jumped out of it last year. Farmer Jones' pig (new since last year) tends to smell very badly...but is having an operation on his nose to remedy that.
The blue and white box that looks like a telephone box is not the 'Tardis' of Dr Who, so to save any mistakes, it has a sign saying 'Turdis' on the outside.

The toilet facilities are again this year being overseen by the Eddie Baker Organic S**t Company who have recently acqired a secondhand 10,000 litre tanker from the Watney Brewery. Eddie assures his customers that all traces of the previous product will be removed before filling takes place in order that the pollution threat is eliminated.

Good news for vintage lorry enthusiasts, it has just been announced that Jack Spires will be attending with his Foden.

At the time of writing we need a ships writer to read the menu and place the order. All other members of the crew will be all at sea following partaking of vast quantities of Old Codgers Ale.

See if you can find one in the local 'shanty' town eh?
I see we have outside interest this year...a few new contributors to the thread...so are you coming to the Festival or do you have worse things to do?
The local butcher is said to have some delicious meat pies this year. The taste of his meat pies has certainly improved since his wife disappeared last month without trace..... Last year when I asked him for bacon...he said "Lean back" which I thought was a bit strange but I leaned back and asked him again.
Backwoodsman has elected to take the star spot at the Pig and Pong on Friday night. I particularly enjoyed his rendition of "Anarchist Geordie" last year..he also sung his own versions of "I'm fawnin' over you darlin'" and "Look at that lass in the mini skirt over there"...... All the women enjoyed him!(if you'll pardon the expression).
It has come to the notice of the committee that someone complained of a puff adder being in the bathroom last year......the rumour is totally untrue although Sergeant Smart did break wind in the bath and count the bubbles if that's where the rumour came from.
Getting close to the Festival now...more details when I have them.

Brass Monkey have found things dropping off due to cold weather.
The Devils Interval are taking a break.

You will also be disappointed to hear that the "Last Night's Fun" concert was yesterday evening.

Dave Fibber of Fibber & Wentiman will be holding a May Day Song workshop called "It's a Hobby of mine, you go and write your own".

This year's hot product from the Craft Tent is set to be the "Make your own Cider from scratch kit". This consists of an apple pip, planting and growing instructions and a dead dog. It is suggested that the dog be kept frozen for about 30 years until the tree actually starts to crop. There is a reduction of £15.99 if you provide your own dog.

On the subject of dogs..please be aware if you bring your dog and have to leave it on the camp..there is a strange man who was caught ..by me...trying to commit an indecent act with someones unattended dog. I did say to him "How low can you get"? but he answered with "OOOOH a dacshund is about me lowest so far".
Incidentally if your dog poos anywhere it is your responsibility to clean it up...there are dog poo bins available and "Super dooper pooper scoopers" to pick it up with will be available for purchase.
Stewards are sill needed for the event but if applying please remember that you must be at least 3' 6" tall in stockinged feet or taller with high heels (especially the men).

I'm afraid Dr. Felltokay can't bring his Morris Dancing Flea Circus this year as he doesn't think they are quite up to scratch.

On the bright side, they may be able to provide a scratch band for dancing...but the good Doctor does ask that clog dancing is not included in the programme.

So pleased to see so many young people at last years Festival and apparently James (6'4") and Rita (4'11") got married after meeting there. That's the long and the short of it!. They will be honeymooning in Outer Mongolia so will miss Friday and Saturday but will be at Sundays Grand Concert around the village pump. I phoned for a weather forecast for the area and have been assured there will definitely be some weather.
'Airport Contention's new CD has really taken off I hear and the song "Fly me to Blitherscrum" will feature at the Festival.

News from the Fringe. Blitherscrum Angling Society have cancelled the "Open Fly Fishing Competition" as too many of the competitors were taking the title too literally. A spokesman for the BAS, Colin "Chopper" Todgson (49), pointed out that worms were an illegal bait.

From the Campsite. After recent problems a ruling has been made banning the use of portable barbecues in tents. From now only properly constructed brick built structures will be allowed. The practice of using fire buckets for "other" purposes is discouraged.

Anyone found to be in contempt will be named and shamed, then will be, according to the degree of offence:

"Dance of the Flaming Arseholes."

On completion of same Mosmo gets stubbed out and Nopar gets the pair of them towed away.

This act is recommended if you are short of crew at your venue. They are self clearing and the "get out" takes no time at all.
