For all of you who were at the Fox and Hounds this year, I just thought you would like to know that the new Children's Hospice South West, who we collected for this year, has just been completed. It is now being equipped inside and will be taking its first children in April this year. Thanks to all of you who supported us.

Perhaps it ought to be a Tor Relay..... song by song or verse by verse.... One group go to the very top and sing the verse while the others stand at the bottom and join in the chorus, then the next person goes to the top .......

A lovely weekend, many, many thanks to Kathy & Jon for all the hard work put in to make it another success.

Excellent singarounds, good company & of course stunning views & great singing on the top of the Tor,

Hope there will be many more singers up there next year for the 10th Anniversary!

Cheers Cats, but I think the thanks should go to Bendigo. He's been doing the job for so long, you just have to point him in the general direction and he wanders his way round the room picking out the singers all on his own.

If Phot had turned up, the weekend could been re-Christened (or is it re-Paganed) as the 'Gerbils & Kittens 2006'

In total £329.90, but we have to take the expenses out of that, i.e flowers for the pub, printing etc, definitley in excess of £250, but how much more I don't know until the final bills come in, and they probably won't be in until the end of May. I'll let you know then.

I think Phot should have come and brought the kittens - would have gone well with the baby gerbils!!!

We have had some other suggestions for next year including the Ten Mini Tors... we make 10 small piles of stones around the campsite and people have to walk between them, camping overnight!!!!!

The Sunday nmorning walk and sing on the top of the Tors is already booked on the 'Programme', led by Snuffy. Thanks for this years walk Snuffy.. brilliant.

Thanks to Jacqui and Brian for driving on Saturday night and for all singers and non singers... and, most importantly, thanks to Dave and Frank at the pub, who actually want us back....

A slight correction - 16.5 actually. OK, so I only made it partway but having set off at least 15 minutes late, at least I got far enough up the Tor to hear you all singing *grin*

What a fantastic weekend!! Major thanks to Kathy & Jon for all their hard work - I'm definitely hooked & would recommend next year to all keen Singers. An excellent venue with a good choice of beers, food & accomodation & also very welcoming - what more could you want? Good company, songs & singing - all present & correct, wonderful.....

As Vaughan managed to kill off the entire world twice, that may go some way to explaining how I feel today!!!

Correction to numbers that made it to the top:

Sixteen! Jessie and I were up there on the trailblazing run, and back on the campsite by 9.30 (just in time to miss the noise and the crowds). I was tempted to leave a few chocky bickies up there for you, but not wanting to cause an arguement, ate them myself (it was a pre-breakfast walk). Some of us got to the top last year too - despite the breeze.

A great weekend even though we were late on parade and I was sporting the tankard scar!

cheers

Sussex Carole, I have searched through all my wild flower books and have been unable to identify that yellow flower you found, the pink ones with fern like leaves are Herb Robert, the other pink ones are Red Campion. The violet was the common Dog violet, but the smaller ones we saw earlier may have been sweet violet. The white flower is Greater Stitchwort. I think that was all the ones we were not sure about the names of!
Vaughan! You weren't supposed to tell them we didn't really make it last year! - I have photos to prove we did this year and will post them just as soon as I get time!

A wonderful weekend, Cats, but we have come to expect no less.

And I definitely "led" from the rear as those intrepid singers ascended the Tor for their "early morning sing". Well it was early: well after 5 am Mudcat time when the singing started. And the total of 14 who made it to the top was .....

14 more than made it last year!!!

A wonderful weekend!   Thank you John & Cathy. Friendly people and great singing in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. The beer (thank you Lucy) and singing at the top of the Tor was excellent. The "What have you forgotten - let us get it for you in Tavistock" run was unbeievable! Where else do you get that offer from the organisers of a festival. Thanks Cathy for getting us a very much needed tin opener!!!

We'll be back next year armed with a bottle of bubbly to celebrate the Fox & Hounds weekend Birthday.

Thanks to all for a wonderful weekend! We managed to 'kill off' 9,876 people by the time I left at 2.30. Unless you count the fact that Vaughan killed the whole world twice.

Lovely to see everyone again and I'm so glad everyone entered into the spirit of my idea of having a death count......made it lots more fun, thanks.

Yep a great weekend, great singing, good friends and too much beer! (same as usual) not as much hedonism and debauchery as promised, but next year we'll really let our hair down for the 10th. The highlights for me were my 2 babes singing a song penned by my eldest, The top of the Tor sing - beer WAS consumed - was it heard in Lydford? The Passing helicopters gave us wide berth, so we guessed we were too loud for them! Barbara singing her American songs was great too. I really enjoyed the recording of the death toll in the songs, perhaps for next year, as it is the 10th we could count the number of times hanky panky occurs and/or quantity of beer consumed - all in song of course!
How about an apropriate song list for the tor walk - The Lark in the clear air has to be one.
Thanks one and all for a great time, good company and fantastic singing, lets do it all again next year.
Cheers, Lucy
