As many of you know, since the sad loss of Carey Hancock (Ces) who was one of the first members of this board, we have held a Toast at Cropredy on Saturday night at 8 o'clock at the bar. Ces was a huge fan of Fairport, and especially, Swarb.

Ces was also a supporter of The Teenage Cancer Trust, and every year we collect money for the charity during The Toast, and over the years we have raised thousands of pounds.

As well as Carey, many of us have lost loved ones, and this is a time to raise a glass to them.
It doesn't matter if you are a new member of the board or a long-suffering older member, everyone is welcome.
Shot glasses (plastic) are provided, and also people bring along their own 'interesting concoctions' for everyone's delight! These have included:
Marmite vodka, absinthe, garlic/chilli vodka etc.

Again, this is an open invitation for anyone who wants to join in - bringing a bottle of 'something nasty' is optional.   Wink

The Toast has become part of Cropredy for many of us, and this will be the fourteenth year of it.

Many members of the board have carried out the duties of proposing The Toast, and this year that duty will be performed by Andy Leslie.

Following on from the accidentally pleasant "Green Stuff" and the encouragingly unpleasant "Brown Stuff" this years effort "The Red Stuff" is maturing nicely.
I have every confidence that it will cause grimacing a plenty.

Sprout and scotch bonnet tequila?

Just to say. Please everybody, if you post here make it clear that this is an everybody welcome event. Yes it goes back a long way to Ces and Swarb, but the toast is 'Absent friends'. Bring your own memories, drink the worst and put ££$ in the fez.

A few reminders:

If you have brewed your own 'cocktail' you must drink a draft at Saturday lunchtime at the bar. If you are still alive later, you can serve it to the mob.
The is a serious fine for anybody who asks for more of any one brew.
So long as the blindness is only temporary, that's fine.
The Frog is allowed that avatar because frankly the alternative isn't great.

Ah a timely Yobb type reminder. The vast Pugwash distillery springs into action.

Postscript

Damn seem to have made a little too much. Will just have to try an early tasting to meet Yobb’s so stringent rules...
