MRS.DUCK - cheers for putting that picci of me on - NOT!!

It wasn't the first sleep I'd had all week, maybe it was the longeest though!! I averaged 2 to 3 hrs a night and had to be up to help at the souvenir shop in the folk week office every morning, whilst some lazy people laid in till midday at the earliest...some of the members of acts appearing at windy b in fact.....i won't mention any names though!!

DORRIE - Is the PLAIN FLOUR still there?? That was so cool. There was a hell of a lot of sellotape used that night.

I had to take tear stricken Maisey and Siân back to camp in a taxi......alright it was my idea cos I was incapable of walking....nevermind.

It was great to go to the bbq and meet loads of new catters I aint seen before, although half of them live in HULL!! It must be thier yearly probabtion period Whitby Week and they all congregate at the Ducks!!

The regatta next year is the week before Folk Week. The regatta dates are mainly dictated by the tides, but also by concerns about not clashing with other events elsewhere that have a stronger pull on punters (like the Sunderland Air Show). It's bad for business (especially the B&Bs) when the regatta coincides with Folk Week - they'd rather have the custom spread over different weeks than competing for the same weekend, and being disappointed.

....though conversely, many people,& I felt this way myself, said there wasnt the 'atmosphere' that there is normally in Festival week......possibly due to the Regatta leaving 'a nasty taste' in people's mouths, so to speak?

Thats about right, Dorrie....though not sure if its quite as long as that.

Steve, it used to be, back in the 80's, that it clashed every 3 years or so, so there ended up an agreement being made that the Regatta would change their dates (They have to change their dates anyway, cos of the Tides, of course) to not clash with us, except where unavoidable because of tides, like this year. Its NOT due to coincide again for a few years yet...

An interesting comment that got passed to me was that for all the trouble that the town had, & the trouble we had, the presence of the Festival helped CALM things in the town faster than it normally subsides after the Regatta.

Stevie1, dates next year are 17 to 23 Aug, it ought not to clash with the regatta 'cos thet only seems to happen every few years when the tides dictate.

Incidentally, despite the aggro between the two factions I did meet regular regatta-goers who said they had stayed on for the festival out of curiosity (never having seen such an event poor lambs) and they had had a whale of a time, might even come again...converts?

Thanks for the Barbie Mr & Mrs Duck, didn't stay very long pressure of enjoying as much as poss in as little time. Roz, put a description of the box on the site, preferably on a separate thread, it takes ages to down load this on my old steam driven computer. If you know the model number and tell us what make it is together with as detailed a description as poss, any dents or scratches you never know one of us might spot it. I'll keep a look out in Whitby as we're there quite often. Take Care all

Hiya all...well, just about recovered from a HELLISH week at Whitby....

As Les B said, considerable damage was done to tents on my site, & the Portaloo Company have been 'Malcolm-ed'.... NOT a pleasant experience, I assure you!

Seriously, there were a LOT of problems with the Site this year.....& not all were apparent to the Paying Populace.

My calf muscles were killing me too, Les.....Hull is also VERY flat... & if you were on MY Campsite, why didnt you make yourself known! I was the LESS tall, straggly-haired unshaven Steward....

Steve, the Guisborough site did get VERY boggy at the gate, apparently...cars stuck.....though there were only just over a dozen people or units used the Site. An enterprising farmer on the other side of the road, just a bit further along opened his field....cheaper....Though he only had ONE Portaloo....dunno how many Campers he got.

Got there on Thursday before it started to steward campsite 2. Was taken ill and after a visit to the hospital then the doctors, went back home to Scotland on the Saturday. Missed the lot and am gutted. Glad everyone had a great time.

Sorry I missed the beer Paul. Maybe next year.

Did anyone stay on campsite 2, did it hold up? It seemed that after a bit of rain it would have been a bit sticky.

Starting to plan next year.

Brilliant week as ever. The Scratch were as always the best dance side and band!! I have my heather from THE garland to ensure a return next year. Also took part in the parade which due to circumstances was reduced to Geoff leading on pipe and drum followed by me and the twins then the youth orchestra and finally the littlies from playtime all dressed up as pirates = it may not have been the longest procession in history but it was GOOD!!
See you all again soon

As the dust settles on my first full week at Whitby and the aches in my muscles ease, (I'm not used to hills where I live in Southport). It's time to reflect. The highs.. Grace Notes, Roy Bailey & John Kirkpatrick doing an hour together, Steve Tilston, Coope Boyes & Simpson (even with Lester Simpson having the dreaded lurgi), Musical Chairlegs with Strawhead, nice performances by Grace Toland, Kiron Means and many others, Wed lunchtime in the Elsinor with Lunctime Legends & Pete Morton. The catering on the campsite(thanks again Ladies). The Lows..The toilets on the campsite, the morons who vandalised awnings & a tent on Fri night.

Thanks to all the stewards for helping things to run smoothly. I had a great time.

Fylde next no hills, except the Mount. Cheers Les
