Clonc-edigion - The Touring Ceredigion Meet Up


#421

I have been investigating the possibility of hiring a van and smuggling everyone over the border by going over the mountain road…

…updates to follow :stuck_out_tongue:

Will miss you! But good to see you are spreading the good word!


#422

The resistance will meet you. We’ve infiltrated the border guards. Don’t forget to dress like locals and disguise your accents. Over and out.


#423

by going over the mountain road…

Ooh, are you sure? :worried: This was, and probably still is a notorious bandit road!


#424

Shhh! That’s my patch. You’ll put people off coming.


#425

I must ask if this is used commonly :hushed::four_leaf_clover:


#426

Nope - just in Ireland and Wales and then only one at a time :smile:


#427

Sorry to fellow Clonc’ers.

I’ve only just realised I’ve got a tutorial on my Open Uni at 11am this morning, so I’m not going to be able to make it today. I didn’t remember until the Google Calendar invite popped up today! So gutted.


#428

We’ll miss you!


#429

Merched Machynlleth had a great time this morning - one brave man did turn up, but he excused himself after a few awed minutes in the presence of 9 feisty women. Normal service may be resumed next month with Nicky back in charge - sorry you couldn’t make it, Nicky, Huw and Macky, but to be honest, you might have felt just a bit intimidated… I really enjoyed meeting @aliC, @Tricia (hope this is the right Tricia!) and @lornarhodes (right way up) for the first time! Looking forward to next month’s Clonc now.


#430

It was lovely to get there for the first time. It’s so lovely to be with people to understand that the struggle/pain is part of the learning and don’t try and turn back to English at the earliest opportunity.


#431

Lovely renewing acquaintances and meeting people for the first time. Isn’t it wonderful the varied conversations you can have with tipyn bach of Welsh.:blush:


#432

I’m sorry I didn’t make it to the Cloncedigion today. We actually drove through Machynlleth this morning. We have just had a week’s “holiday” in Aberystwyth, but as we were exploring locations and taking photos for my husband’s geology book, I ended the week pretty much tired out and just wanted to get home. I hope you all had a good meeting and I hope to make it some other time when you venture towards the northernmost end of your territory.


#433

I live near Llandysul. How do I find out when you are in the area for a meet up?


#434

Watch this space, Celia! Machynlleth was a one-off, so we’ll back to Ceredigion next month. Nicky (Mr Clonc) will, I’m sure, be discussing dates and places for the next meet-up before long, and it will be great to meet you then.


#435

It was so lovely to meet more members of my SSiW family and to finally be able to visualise you as something other than a picau ar y maen, Bronwen!!
The croeso was cynnes iawn wrth pawb! Diolch.


#436

As @BronwenLewis mentioned, we post information about each Clonc-edigion meetup here, but I also put it in the newsletter when we’ve decided on a date and location.


#437

We did miss all the men … especially later in the evening when the dancing started! I was looking forward to seeing your moves on the dance floor @HuwJones. Looks like I’ll have to wait for the Parti Penblwydd :smile:


#438

When I took to the floor shortly after meeting Maureen 40 years ago to show her my best moves, she laughed. I have never danced since. Just think of what could have been. :disappointed:


#439

I, for one, will never call him Nicky again.


#440

Time to start thinking about the next meet up? Anyone have any ideas?
