“I think this was one of those where a bunch of us drove up Friday night, went to the event, and drove back down Sunday. We did that a lot going to An Tir around this time. I especially remember the one (and this could be it) where we started off with me thinking I didn't really want to go but everyone else did so I had to and everyone else in the group thinking that they didn't really want to go but Steve wanted to so they should. Once we got that cleared up we had a great time.” – Steven MacEanruig
