I've enjoyed meeting Straydogs every time. I like them all individually, but as a group I'm a bit scared of them. I suppose it's because they are so many.

It's a different vibe in a crowd, personalities perform for the show.

For me it's mostly about the size of the group, I think. I feel better in smaller groups. Even at our fan forum meetups, if we're a big group in the same conversation I easily fall into the role of someone watching from the outside, rather than playing a part in what's going on.

Anyway, I don't mean to stray (!) from the topic. All of the above is why I'm considering this one. Here we have the company of the fine people, and also the opportunity to "escape" to nearby bars etc. in smaller groups.

Ah, yes, that. My standard MO in crowds.
And yet, those times when I join in/let go, that's where the gold lies.

I am still considering this, but the price is scaring me off a bit.

I'd do it, if I could. I'm very happy on the fringes. :beer:

You very welcome.
Peter made an event page on FB.

"SDP 2018 will take place at a historical place in the north of The Netherlands. In the town of Leeuwarden there's a very old prison building, called The Blokhuispoort.
We, Straydogs, can't wait to get in there to have us a party, while in the past there have been many poor bastards who couldn't wait to get out of that fucking building.
During our three days stay there, we will sleep in their cells. Nowadays it's a little more comfortable to stay there. The prison has been metamorphosed to a hostel.

The building is on the edge of the old center of Leeuwarden, so a great location near canals, bars and restaurants.
We will have plenty of food and drinks inside the prison walls, but you are allowed to make an escape whenever you want to.
Only two streets away is the in the year of 1912 established Café De Ossekop. Also very close, you can get your pint of Guinness in the Irish pub called Paddy O'Ryan.

It goes without saying that there will plenty of music going on, played by whoever feels like it. On top of that, on Saturday evening,
Tom Waits tribute band Uncle Vernon will play a short gig. This is the band I put together four years ago and played at the Straydog Party in Oudewater.
So next year we will celebrate our five years existance.

Costs for the three days stay with everything included, will be around € 250,-. Once I know how many people will be attending, I can be more specific about the price.

So step right up!"
