I know where my towel is

I would like to suggest that we all concoct an unusual Brew/Distillation and raise a glass as usual at 7-30 on Saturday 15th of August.

We could then either send a donation to the Teenage Cancer Trust directly or to a central point to send as a Talkawhile donation.

I agree!  Maybe a 'Just Giving' page could be set up or something?

I think that we can still raise a glass of 'something nasty' at the time.
At least this year I won't be standing on a fresh cow pat in a field... with a green face. (Me, not the field)
Perhaps some of us can be in contact with video links?

People are talking about ‘Zoom’ for meetings and gatherings. I don’t know anything about it though.

I think the free version has a limit on numbers and length of session...

Not sure about numbers but 40 minutes is i think the time limit before there is a pay option.  Have used it to attend a remote art class now the physical one has been cancelled.

40 minutes, 100 people limit.

Conversations are difficult with more than 6 people, and need to be managed.

I don’t either, I hope we don’t have to do the toast in ways that we can’t all follow.

Why not have a proposer do it on You tube, and we respond by comment and add  a photo of the draft being drunk.
