I’m lovin the positive response already to the Drum Trek idea ( Thanks Bazza..think you nailed it mate)…so whilst the iron is hot….here is the plan…formative as it is….26 circles in 26 days…John O Groats to Lands End ( downhill innnit) I’m not gonna get into too much detail right now but throw out a list with a place and a name…if you are on the list I want/need your help with venue/ organising/a bed for the night/food/whisky 🙂
If you are in send me an email entitled drum trek and a message saying ‘I’m in’ to firstname.lastname@example.org
I can’t be too flexible with the route or dates as it all has to fit around the Stainsby Festival dates in the middle so if you cannae help/are on holiday/doing something else then please nominate someone in your area or close by who might step up and help.
I’ll be asking the contact to find a venue ( free if poss…Charidee) and help promote in the locality…If you are a DCF then you’ll be jumping in the circle too I would hope. The ‘money raising part’ will happen online but we will ‘Magic Hat’ the gigs for fuel costs to the next venue.
Here is the planned Route, proposed dates and ‘please can you help me’ contact list….ooooohhhh….exciting:
