I am thinking that it might be possible for me to get to GM if I can do the stewarding thingy.  Anyone ever done this before?  Also is it possible to arrange your shifts to work with family and friends?

I've done it before and it was good fun (not quite as fun as just going but you know what i mean). As we know, everybody at the festival is sooooo friendly, smily and chatty. You do get assigned shifts if i remember right but you can swap with people and ask to be with firnds etc. If the head steward is Paddy again, he is lovely! Hope that helps Fergal : )
