I see that a Robin Hood Conference is coming to Rochester, NY.

http://www.rochester.edu/news/show.php?id=3440

It looks like they have a very full programme. Not just in conference papers, but a multi-media extravaganza. There's a display of books, stills and even Douglas Fairbanks's boots. Musical entertainment with performances from various Robin Hood operettas and a lute concert. And silent films with live musical accompaniment - including the rarely seen 1912 version of Robin Hood. The other is the 1922 Dogulas Fairbanks in Robin Hood, with a newly re-created score to be played by a live orchestra.

I'm amazed by how much stuff they've crammed into what some would think would be a dusty academic conference. I imagine the organizers of this must have put in a lot of long hours and had many hair-tearing moments.

So, I thought I'd say thanks in advance. And V & T can expect me to buy them a drink in appreciation.

I guess that whole impartial pretense went right out the window there.

You know, this is a rare case where I see it as the glass being half-full. I don't usually expect to see either of you at the North American conferences. So, while I'm sad to be denied Alys's company, I see it as a special treat to see Sorne more often than every four years.

It looks like it should be a really good conference. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. :-)
