Well, after two years respite from the previous rally off we went again to Vidlin Sur LaMer on the sunny Costa Shetland. Weather was on the whole good and some folk even got a tan!!
Highlights: the weather, seeing old friends, the beer was better and the hall was a lot nicer.
Lowlights: The bands (in my opinion) were not all that great – one on thursday and one on friday were okay – saturdays were too bloody loud. Disco – too much garage etc – remember a lot of us are getting older.
It would be great to get back to the earlier Dim’s with Rock, Salt & nails type music – a mixture of bands – not all heavy rock type stuff! Bring back Hom Bru and eightsome reels in the hall!
Good rally on the whole and well organised. Roll on 21……………
