We are on a really tight schedule here:

Images:

We are hoping to put together a sequence of images from previous toasts. Do you have anything?
Ideally these should feature groups of people, so that as many as possible will be included.
The photos once cropped must be in landscape format and at least 1920 x 1080 pixels.

If you have anything please PM Andy Leslie, for where to send them.

Audio:

This is the tricky one. We need somebody to write and record just under two minutes of audio. Outlining the origins of the toast. Who it's about, expanding into it being about everybody. Explain the people drinking awful concoctions. The toast 'Absent Friends' and link the the teenage cancer trust for donations.

If you can do that, please contact me.

More news later.

This was a huge effort, but the files have now been sent. We'll see what happens next.

Andy and I split the photos. David Hughes did a short history of the toast and Jim proposes it.

I've included as many people as possible, but I'm sure there will be elements that won't please everybody.

Thank you for your efforts to get this sorted. For various reasons I don't attend the Toast these days, but I will definitely be "there" for this one!  Tiara

I've only attended the toast on two relatively recent occasions (2017 and 18). I'm aware of some of the history of this but looking forward to seeing the video and hearing a bit more about it. Thanks to all involved.

Thanks for all the good wishes, i was, firstly, shocked and then delighted when Frog contacted me, in the middle of the night a couple of weeks ago, and asked me if i would do the toast.
  I told him I was out of Mothers pride at the moment but would nip next door and cadge a couple of slices off Shiela first thing in morning!  He proceeded to calm me down and explained it was the TAW Cropredy toast that needed doing and that Colin would explain the technicalities in the cold light of day.  
   After a bit of tweaking the toast was done and despatched to TAW Central where David's piece and mine were transformed by el Supremo, Colin, with the judicious use of photographs from our resident Snapper supreme Andy Leslie, to whom many thanks are due.
   I watched the whole thing on delay after my return to the dream home from the magical place that is Workington, on Saturday evening and enthusiastically demolished the best part of a bottle of rum during the proceedings.
   Huge thanks also to Fairport themselves for hosting it all on their Yoochoob channel.
   Fun as it was though,this must never happen again, and i hope every future toast takes place near the corner of the bar, where they belong.
    Right, enough, I'm off to make an ostentatious contribution to the TCT and i strongly suggest that if you havent done it yourself yet you can join in all the fun of giving generously asap, it's good for the soul, go on, do it, NOW!😎

I shed a tear when I saw Gower Flower.... Cry a few more at the memories of all absent friends whom I've met at that bar and those I never got to meet. Thank you for organising it, it was wonderful. I recall viewing Jonah's Oak when his plaque was the only one on that tree.

Jim, I seem to recall you prefer Warburton's Toastie and not Muvva's Pride for toast?  Wink

Well done all and thank you. x
