Meeting took place on Tuesday 15th December.
The Gate Hangs Well at Syston, Leicestershire has seen many meetings of the GOC in its time.
It has seen us vacate a room talking about dildos, stare at vicars and eat insects. But never had it seen us perform as an orchestra! Well…. I say orchestra….
We got to see our lovely Tatty again, with all the colours in her hair, I even pimped her blog for the Grove to see.
Business had to be dealt with, and answers were thus:
Who’s running the Solstice Ceremony?
– Originally me and Danceswithweasels put ourselves down for running it, but it appears Danceswithweasels might not be able to make it…. Walked into that one didn’t I really?
If everyone has seen the request for a member of the Grove to perform a handfasting between Boxing Day and New Year’s, is anyone able to do it?
-Sadly had to decline as none of the qualified members were available during the required time.
Seeming as the road to the GHW will be closed at the time of our General Meeting in January, any suggestions for a neutral spot we can all get to?
-After suggesting Nottingham, Beeston, Syston (different pub…. Shhhhhh!) Cymro had the idea of Bingham as the Meeting spot. Easy to get to from all Corieltauvi lands, and even by train. All we need to do now is a li’l bit of research and we should be sorted.
Our newest member asked if any of us had any interest in performing music, had he been able to join us on Tuesday he would have been amazed, nay! Astonished!
Strider got us some crackers each with a whistle and a number. Each whistle differed in length and pitch. As we found our numbers, Strider then conducted our medley with great aplomb. We worked through ‘Three Blind Mice’ and ‘We Wish You A Merry Christmas’ before folks disappeared to have very timely cigarettes.
See you at Glastonbury!
