    'just' great seems so little.
    but it was;

    Just Great!

    A good run, well put together .
    Grand (literally!) accomodation.
    The roads and scenery... - i'm sure the pics coming along will say far more than i can, except Wow!
    The company was from the sublime to the ridiculous
    And every one a pleasure to share your company.

    Mandy, Aidan and Jockser,
    Thank you for putting it together, every gig you do is better than the last.
    To the volunteers,
    we were well looked after - Thank you for giving up your time for our pleasure.
    And it was - Just Great!

    An excellent weekend - some great locations, and some wonderful company.

    Home and unpacked - a little over 4 hours from Hollyhead with very little traffic.

    What a quality weekend. "Thanks" doesn't seem quite enough for the organization and hospitality provided, but I'll say it anyway


    THANKS

    we're home too

    Big thank you to all who planned and helped out this weekend. Our trip was cut short but still we enjoyed the second night in Cavan. Great B&B. Big thank you to Liwood and David Gibson for stopping with us on the Coast road and helping us out it was very appreciated. Jockser and David thank you for the text and phone calls regarding MissPringle's condition and too all who gave us a warm reception in Virginia.

    Peter and Martina
