Alan Day Posted August 11, 2008 Share Posted August 11, 2008 Well I have now recovered from an evenings hell in my little tent,battered and buffeted by heavy rain and a gale on Saturday Night. On Saturday Morning I travelled up from the Surrey Sussex border starting out at 5-30 AM and my Sat Nav started giving me crazy advice just about Sheffield when I needed it most. To turn right when your on the Motorway in twenty yards when on the M1 is not what I wanted to hear. Someone up there must have given her a slap as suddenly she started to give me the correct advice ,only to come across road works which took me back to the Town Centre again.I eventually got to the Peak where Mark lives and althogh I gave everybody advice as to wear winter cloths I did not think that I would actually be right. My first job was to join Roger Digby for the Anglo hour and with Roger's usual meticulous planning started and finished at exactly the planned times.It was very well attended and seemed well recieved. The sessions were excellent,a good mixture of tunes.There were many things I missed over the Weekend that I would like to have attended but didn't perhaps next time.The one thing I did attend was Dan Worral's Historical talk on the Anglo. It was excellent.Very well prepared a mixture of facts,Graphs,Newspaper articles and backed up with photographs. What an interesting and comprehensive talk it was. If any of you are wondering what to include during a concertina workshop ,Dan is your man. I eventually got home exhausted on Sunday Evening and fell asleep watching the television,but my wife will confirm that there is nothing unusual in that. Well done Mark for organising this weekend let us hope for better weather next year. Al; Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
