Just back from SkegVegas Rare & underplayed weekender at the Crown. A Hotel tucked away well down Drummond Road with your room a mere shuffle away plus a decent breakfast & bar food, stir in people of the same mind, exceptional music, beer, dancing & laughter and as they say you have the start of something beautiful.
This first one was like a trial pack to see if we the paying public would like the new product & be making repeat purchases, well my verdict is to place my repeat prescription.
The room is ideal for 100+ with dancefloor at one end & tables ideally placed between it & small record dealer's plus it's intimate enough to wander table to table chatting, Friday was quiet, no doubt due to work commitments, Saturday saw the afternoon & night before beer fest take its toll but the room & floor was fuller and buzzing, another 20 bodies or so would have just topped it off but I'm sure word of mouth will rectify that. So thank you Dave & Donna Raistrick and heres to the 2nd & all future gatherings, well be at the fun front.

after a few years of him thinking about it, eighteen months planning it (between trips to the States and other weekenders etc. etc.) it seems a long time coming but I know will be more than worth it.

Your 'baby' is being born today Dave, relax and enjoy and it it truly the start of something new to do :)
