Everything is ready. Blast Off starts Thursday 9pm at Moma's Beach Bar with our traditional get together. From then it's God Only Knows what/where/how we'll end up! Hopefully at La Finca at Midnight on Sunday with our ears ringing with great music and a big bag full of another set of happy memories.

See ya'll shortly...

Regards,

Dave

Just a thought.....if anyone is driving to Hitsville for the first time and using SatNav,

I just tried loading mine with Continental Hotel address supplied (same as on the hotel's website) and the address wasn't recognised.

You might need to include del. .....as in Paseo del Mediterraneo.

Right..packing tomorrow and then we're leaving for Gatwick at 2 a.m. Weds.

:thumbup: See you there!

- Kev & Pam.

Most folks will be en route home now or just arriving home so hope everyone had a safe journey after a great long weekend on the Med.

As the organizer, feel it's best I let the visitors comment on the music and vinyl shennanigans etc, but just want to pass on our thanks to all the people who came to party from Madrid, Belgium, Granada, Gibraltar, South Africa, Australia, Orihuela, Benidorm, Almeria and UK. Numbers were up, the "first timers" slotted in fantastic. Big thanks to Moma's Beach Bar, Continental Hotel and La Finca for their facilities and impeccable service.

See ya'll at Brothers Of Soul in October.

Regards,

Dave

Well it was a top weekend for sure, Dave & Bev give yourselves a big pat on the back, great setting, fabulous company and top class music throughout the weekend. As you can guess I really enjoyed myself, even if I had to put up with Chris L and Denny for most of the weekend, in truth it was a pleasure to catch up with both of them as well as all the other regulars. Great to see Russ from Gibraltar can't believe it was 9 years ago we last saw each other,thanks for the lift Russ, I'll catch up with Thursday evening for a pint in Gibraltar before I fly back to the UK on Friday. For the first timers I'm sure they all enjoyed themselves, and will be planning to attend again next year. One first timer I spent a fair amount of time over the weekend was Keith (Denny's mate) over from South Africa, who fitted in as if he was a regular, and no doubt will be making a return visit. John and Carys have put up some great photo's of the weekend on facebook which I'm sure you can access via the Hitsville site, so check them out. Lastly nice to see the young Spanish teenagers there, had great chat with Vanessa and Danny, and their love for the music.

Well done Mr & Mrs M for organising this event so brilliantly. Have had a fantastic time once again - great to meet up with old friends, and new faces who then go on to become old friends.

From the Thursday night start at Moma's until the last record at La Finca it has been a pleasure to share it all.

Once again a good mix of collectors who come to play out of their skins as well as out of their boxes to make sure that we all have a great time, and whether you are dancer a talker or just a listener it is great to feel so included and part of it all with such friendly people.

The fact that people are returning year on year, is testament that this is the place to be in Septmeber.................roll on 2012

Pam and I returned home in the early hours of this morning, having stayed on for a couple of extra days. We spent those days wondering why we hadn't done Hitsville before! We've been missing out on something special.

Top marks to Dave & Bev for organising this weekender, and thanks to everyone who made us feel so welcome. We'll see you all again next year for sure. :thumbsup:

Comment of the event for me, and I can't remember who's it was.................."Isn't she (Imogen) a bit young to be looking through a record box?" :lol:

:hatsoff2: - Kev.

Rather than basically type what has already been said by Mrs P & others Janet & I would simply like to agree with all the comments made to date both by regulars & newcomers alike...a great weekend once again. Some cracking & very varied music played by all from Thursday through to the early hours of Monday.

Once again my old partner in crime from the late 70s Mr Greet excelled for me...all those 1000s of miles travelling alongside me in my old Mk3 Cortina listening to my tapes obviously rubbed off on him (impeccable taste !).

Mr & Mrs Moore once again organised matters with military precision & our thanks go out to them & their "roadies" !!

We will see you all next year but will add a day or two on as I wont have the usual work commitments.

Thanks again

David & Janet Ferguson

So another great weekend is now a memory. Loads of laughing, fantastic tunes, new friends and drinking (ohhh the drinking!!).

The hottest weather we've had was a real bonus too, mind you, the weather is always good anyway.

And all shared with some of the greatest people I've ever met. Roll on next year.

This was my third Hitsville weekender and was a cracker, the choice of Moma's Beachbar for the warm-up was spot on, the weather was warm, the beer cold, food great and the music and comradeship top notch. Four days isn't enough, I just wanted to go on for ever. Be back next year................

Right then,there's nowt else to say cos it's all been said - I'll just add that my personal lasting memory from the week-end was John Elias doing the ironing while Carys was on the lounger sipping on a Pina Colada and catching a tan !

ACe !

Great feedback guys. Bev and I had a ball as usual.

Next year's is now booked for 20 - 23 Sept 2012. (week later so hopefully a week cooler!) Everything is in place in Mojacar and the associated admin will be all done by Christmas.

The Hotel for next year's shennanigans is almost sold out! So if you've not been in touch with Bev and want a room at the Continental then be quick peeps!

I'll be in touch with all the Collector/DJs when we get back from the OZ Nash. Have a few ideas buzzing around in my head and will consult with everyone before making any decisions.

Se you at Brothers Of Soul, or the OZ Nash or somewhere where the music's LOUD out and about.

Regards,

Dave

PS. I have a few slipmats from the years spare so if anyone needs one give me a shout. (Only last 3 years though).

Had a fantastic time, the music was more than "sublime" and most guys came away with at least one more title on their "want's list".

However, meeting up with everyone again was better still! such a great bunch of people and even helping them celebrate birthdays and anniversaries.

Only problem with Hitsville for Me is ................................................. I didn't get to the first 3 over in the States :-(((

Thanks Bev and Dave for the invite to the Villa - love the music room.

Looking forward to next year - hope one of the rooms booked is for me lol.

Best - Chris
