Echoing what's already been said... Many, many thanks to the Ducks for organising this do! And thanks to Maddie for all her fine work on the raffles -- how much did we raise for Mudcat, Mrs D? (BTW, great pix!)

Once again, I really enjoyed getting to see so many of the faces that belong to the (by now) familiar names. Special thanks to Bill Sables (and Lorna!) for putting me up/putting up with me for a couple of nights -- especially at such a very busy time for them.

Thanks to Willa for indulging me by learning "Hola Hee Hola Ho" (and so quickly, too!) so we could sing it together -- you did a great job! Really enjoyed the singing of *so* many folks, can't even list them all, cos I'm afraid I'll leave someone out, but there were some great singers there! Linda & Pistachio -- your singing blew me away! As it was for Micca, a particular high point for me was hearing Sue Van G sing Linda's song "The Luckiest Sailor"... a flawless rendition of a powerfully moving song. Also, Geoff the Duck's magnificent *solo* rendition of "Duelling Banjos" was a performance which will linger *long* in my memory!

Hope to see some of you again before too long...

Cheers,

YY

A huge thank you to the Ducks and ducklings for organising the weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed my 2nd Yorkshire Gathering and the weather helped by permitting much outdoor singing. Yorkshire Yankee, thanks for all your songs, Sue and Bob, thanks for all the songs (and cheese) and Linda, Les and Maggie, thanks for getting me involved in the first place.Lovely to re-meet some familiar faces,   (Nutty, Colin, Frank) and make some new friends. Micca, I'll wait to hear your own version of Thiepval sometime soon. I hope to catch up with more of you at the Beverley Folk Festival 18 - 20 June. Cheers, Hazel.

Hey look folks, my technophobia's clean disappeared, so much so I've gone and got my own e-mail address and joined you Mudcats. Hooray, no more will I be confused with my old man.

Maisie Nan, thy wish is granted (but don't blame me for the previous, all us blokes were too busy going "corrrrr" to actually find out your name & naturally the competition wasn't going to enlighten us... ;) ).

Mind you, I'm now worried - either there is a big hole in my memory (& I distinctly remember your hands wandering, I'm sure!) or davetn is using poetic licence as a weapon...

Sorry Wulfie, wish it had been me but the poem was from Dave, you obviously made a big impression there. I wrote one called Crush of the Day on the way home - before flat tyre - but I'll save it til I see him again ... mmm... lovely... haven't had so much fun since Mayday. Please stop calling me Mrs Dave - call me Maisie Nan like my dad used to. Looks like my technophobia might be almost cured. Big hugs all round - Nancy

Well I heard the Ladies singing
and I heard the Limpit snore
and I heard the Yorkshire Yankee
singing Hard Times are no more

I met big Ducks
I met small ones
and some of them were cute
I cuddled Raedwulf's bottom
It really is a beaut

Heard Sorcha on her fiddle
and Ian on his flute
a wheel went flat on the way back home
and I think I'm still drunk

Special thanks to Bassic and Wigan, two splendid chaps... it's been ages since I got my leg over anything and then two came at once......

And even more special thanks to Mrs Duck who organised it all with the help of Geoff (who did everything else) and the Black Dog. Next year is in the diary already.

Just got back and found children under the layers of grime. Time to unwind with a glass of wine and some aftersun. So glad people had a good time. Lovely to meet new faces and other parts and really great to meet Sorcha at last. No voice left to teach tomorrow but who cares, it was fun! And in front of many witnesses Tracy said 'See you all next year' which by my reckoning means the 20th May 2005 only 362 days to go! Will post piccies and ransom notes soon. Thanks everyone for making it another great gathering.

Hi All,

Yorks. Yankee's husband here - I guess that makes me Yorkshire Englishman or Yorkshire Limey or something.

Just to let you know, she (and her freshly baked cookies) are on their way. She is also bringing my laptop, in response to whoever it was that was bemoaning the lack of geek toys.

If she isn't there by 9pm, she might be lost - call her on 0781 280 1175 and you might be able to talk her through final approach.
