This has sort of fallen by the wayside, but I think it’s about time to pick it back up again.

The first ever ScotDope is scheduled to be held in Glasgow on 4-6 May, 2001.

In the definitely column (at last call, anyway), we have:

Iguana Boy
y’all still here???

And what about you maybes?

Spiny Norman
and of course anyone else who wants to come along is welcome (with a few exceptions, but they probably know who they are :D)

so, are we still on for this???

fairly unlikely for me…but I’ll keep you informed if the situation changes (& yes, I should have recovered from Amsterdope by then :p). Recovered from our drunken phone call to Spain yet? :wink:

ruadh, I’m not going to commit to this until later. I won’t really know until nearer the date whether I have time to go away again. How was Madrid?

hibernicus, I’m not going to answer your last question, because this isn’t the forum for it. Enough said :frowning:

meanwhile here’s a “wee” bump for the others on the list(s)…

Oh, thank goodness!

I saw this thread and thought maybe you were trying to tell me something! :slight_smile:

Well, I would LOVE to come, but unfortunately it is a wee bit far from here.

Have fun, you all!


I’m moving down to London a couple of weeks before that, and won’t be in a position to make it back up.

Sorry, I would have loved to!

  • but I’m afraid all my airfare money has been redirected to purchasing tickets to Los Angeles :slight_smile:

Hoist one for us, would you ?

Have fun, take pictures, post cryptic threads, get drunk. Don’t do anything we wouldn’t do.

I don’t see any problems with making it that weekend, but I’d better stay in the ‘maybe’ column for now.

I won’t be in Scotland again until Christmas. I’ll fly into Glasgow & rent a car; drive up to Skye. I graduated Portree High School & Glasgow School of Art. Mum still lives up there, so I visit about every year or so.

If you’re planning another around then, I’m in!

Is anyone still planning on turning up for this?

I don’t think I’ll be able to make it because of work. Sorry ruadh.

I will probably be able to make it on those dates.
However, could you keep me in the maybe column for now?

OK. I have a slightly hysterical question.
Would anyone else other then me be travelling to or from a rural area? I’m probably being way over cautious about the Foot&Mouth risk. I understand it’s fairly safe to travwel between urban areas, but I’m shy of travelling from one rural area to another. This rural to urban journey needs thought. The train journey I’d take would have to go through Carlisle, where new infections are springing up on a daily basis. Now I imagine that anyone who’d been in contact with any farm would be sensible enough not to immediately jump on a train without changing his boots first (if he hadn’t already been disinfected). Also, the preemptive cull will have taken place by then.

I decided not to attend a similar internetty get together this weekend because a farm near my place of work was under investigation last week. Thankfully, they have just been given the all clear, and at the moment, there are no cases of Foot&Mouth south of the Langdales.

Sorry, just to confirm: I will be in Paris or Madrid on the Sunday of that weekend, so I can’t make it. I’m around at the end of May, probably.

I could make it - so long as no-one minds the worlds fattest, ugliest and most horribly bearded newbie spoiling any photos that might be taken.

I will be there in May.

I have the time off work and everything. Do we know where we are meeting yet?

I will prolly have to start looking into places to stay in a couple of weeks. If anyone knows the area and could give me some pointers, it would be most appreciated.


hurrying right now, but these might help

and this is where I looked for easy way out and asked on another board! (Is there a “lazy incompetent sod” icon, perchance?) Well, the excuse was in the hope of getting personal recomendations of any kind.)

Celyn, does that mean you’re still in? [sub]crosses fingers[/sub]

Nothing’s been planned apart from the dates, Rick! Where the hell is Iguana Boy?
