I would vote for the George, Elsinore has been very crowded at recent Melnet sessions, (also puts me on the spot for the Euro session  ;D).

Bob and anyone else who knows both: would you prefer the basement of the George or the back room of the Golden Lion for the flat key session, assuming the time is 1pm-3pm on Tuesday as before?

The Golden Lion was big enough (just), but for me at least, not having to move pubs for the Eurosession would be a plus.

This I know, but my digs are up the hill, and so is the Con Club, where I steward.

That's because lots of Melnetters turned up ......

Either is ok for me .

Btw , what keys do they play in at the Euro session ? Do I need a GC box as well as the DG and BbEb?

GC is the commonest kind of melodeon for French music, and there are a heck of a lot of tunes in A minor.  So I'd say bring it if you've got it.

Most of the melodeons that turn up are D/G but also some G/C and C/F. Hurdy gurdies tend towards odd keys!

I'm not sensing much enthusiasm for a melnet get-together. Perhaps there is just too much else on and maybe we should leave it for this year??

It is a tricky balance...there is such a lot going on.... I will try and go if it is on, but would be keen to have a bit more time to talk and socialize rather than play all the time. (I can do that anywhere else and without a richesse of melodeons!).

Yes, Mike, I agree entirely about the opportunity to talk. It is one of the reasons why I suggested holding it in The George, which is conducive to talking as well as playing, rather than The Elsinore, where it is difficult to talk.

I phoned The George today to check that it is still available on Thursday from 12.30 to 2.45, but the person I need to speak to wasn't there. Apparently, she will be on duty from 11.00 tomorrow, so I'll confirm things one way or another after I have spoken to her.

OK, folks, it's booked! A Whitby melnet meeting will take place in the cellar bar of The George Inn, 38 Baxtergate, on Thursday from 12.30 to 14.45. I'll be there and I hope other melnetters will join me for a chat and to play a few tunes. If Pikey can't make it, Delilah may not happen.  :o
