You mean saying Grace might have improved the service, Skip? We certainly had time to peruse the menu (not that it bore much relation to what was eventually available) but the company more than made up for that... :0)

OK, lets make in a ton up! (100)

Yes I have conferred with she-who-must-be obeyed and we are happy to host the next Euro-Mudgathering here in Moo Land. Depending on numbers we may well have the space at Moo Towers but I'm thinking of conferring with the local "commune" who have recently gone all arty and musical to see whether they might let us use a slightly bigger performing space in the spirit of "European togetherness". Worth a try I think.

We have plently of floor space a couple of spare beds and maybe room for a couple of tents if necessary. But there's plently of time for planning yet.

So if it's OK with you all....Moo Land next year?

Love to all

Andreas, I hope you've recovered from all your misfortunes. What an awful thing to happen! Sorry to hear you cut your holiday short, but your humour seems to be still intact, going by the lyrics. Great song, thank you!

And before I forget - safe journey to Bill and his fellow suspects for the American tour! Should be great, going by the thread!

And now I'll go and have a look at Noreen's latest photo.

Andy!! what a horrible experience for you!!! I bet the guys weren't very tall.....there is something about us tall people, particularly the gentle ones, that brings out the worst in a few people of less than average stature. They start thinking that they have something to prove, and it's us that have to suffer.
I hope you recover soon. It was so good to see you again, and I love your song.

Mudguard, I am so sorry to hear of your troubles. There is a rally in York on 23rd of June. Over 3000 cyclists will be there for the weekend.

You know not all of us are animals like those you met. The song is excellent and should go in the mudcat song book.

have some happy cycling-Holland is good. England is good and there is much to see.

take care

Im sorry to hear about your bad time on your cycling holiday. What were the French police doing while you were being attacked? What a pitty you did'nt sail from Holland to Hull and join us at the gathering, you would have been very welcome. you seem to have met, a few of the local idiots and mindless fool's on your trip. I'm sorry the holiday was spoilt, next year try to get over to see us over here, you will be most welcome.

First, a big thank you to Wolfgang for organizing all this!

Second, a big thank you to all who came for many nice talks, great tunes and great songs!

Thanks, Bill, for the nice badge - it has a place of honour in a most prominent place in my living room!

Myself had some bad experiences during the bike tour I started from Münster. Btw, sorry, Mr. and Lady McMoo, Brussels would have been a bit far off my planned track).

In the youth hostel in Gent (Belgium) my money was stolen from my purse at night (coins, credit card and banking card remained there).

A few days later, when I was just about to leave Calais, I talked to a Frenchmen while one Neo-Nazi was listening. He must have noticed from my bad French that I am not French, and he whistled for his friends who attacked me with baseball bats - luckily only one stroke hit me, and it hit me only lightly, just a little hematome on my left arm - I was able to flee on my bike into the safety of a group of police officers.

Still, I did not like the experience and decided to break off the tour - I did not want to stay in a country where I am in the permanent danger of serious attacks... (there were some other factors that made me go home as well, e.g. my tooth started to hurt once again...)

Now, back to the Münster Gathering, which was a much better experience! I loved meeting all of you MudCatters (and Petra and little Sophie as well!)

During the evening I had written a verse (btw, great one, Eric!) about our weird moments with the service and bill in the restaurant, later I added a verse or two. Here it goes (tune should be obvious):
-------------------
In Münster's fair city

In Münster's fair city
I saw a sight that was pretty,
I first set my eyes on Mudcatters galore,
As they sang more than one song
With no single chord wrong,
List'ning was a big joy,
A very big joy.

In Münster's fair city
I met Wolfgang and Letty,
I first saw Susanne and Evi and Ranks,
Patricia and Richard, called McMoo,
Noreen, Bill and Patrish I saw too,
Eric and Cobble and Greg
And Bron once again.

In Münster's fair city
Where the service is shitty,
I first set my eyes on a landlord so bad.
What we ordered, came never,
What we got, took forever,
He cried pay it without bill,
And pay it right now.

In Münster's fair city
Where Wolfgang lives in a flat-ee
We had very much fun there and at the pub
Well organized was the meeting
Though the Italian tried cheating,
Thanks to Wolfgang and Susan
For sorting him out.

-----

great job, Noreen.

The background in pic2 is the castle (now university).
(to all others) Group pic4: go to the big version of the picture and look closely above the big clock at the chruch tower: You'll see (guess) three cages: That's where the catholic church of Muenster has displayed the bodies of three renegates for close to a century in order to intimidate any followers of the Wiedertaeufer (re-baptists).
