    critch Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    Think I'll come along. It's a bit of a drive, but do-able in a day. There is a YHA at the col if that suits anybody better?

    How much (in total) do we need to raise to be eligable?

    ******************

    Well you can do it a couple of ways depending on how many are coming from here - we have a group rate of up to 4 people and the group has to raise £400 in sponsorship total.

    Or do it singular and each individual has to pledge to raise £200 or a couple of you are official walkers and we do allow an unofficial walker if they are with an officially walker but they have to raise sponsor money as well.

    Email me if you want further details katrinac@kcopping.fsnet.co.uk

    Be great for you all to come - its a lovely day and don't forget there is a gig in the evening.

    You'd have to raise your spelling of 'eligible' for starters!

    If Critch can get there then I'll have to! Even though we gotta pay for a gig after and raise sponsorship money by annoying all your friends for months asking them to sponsor you! Just trying to find out if my logistical support [Ian Cropton} is likewise thinking of it.

    Unless I've misconstrued your mssg you obviously are going to sponsor me then? Unless, unless, you were were referring to Nick's attendance? Now that's worth a sponsorship just for blantant cheeky impudence.Innit?

    All donations welcome, no obligation, no matter how small, any spare change? See I am a trained busker and learnt my trade dilligently as had to have three dogs & puppies to support in those days! Only money accepted , no Winalot 5Kgs bags please!

    I don't know how to transfer this to the Snowdon Thread, I expect Paul could, if he deems so (I have - pd)? At the moment I only need your Postcode and town [so I can put you on the LHSF sub form] by a PM here or email to aspwatterson@hotmail.com

    Will only chase you for the money once I've performed the onerous odyessy done in love in June. Am not on the automatic charity giving online thingy so it'll have to be a cheque or postal order made out to LHSF in the post.If you put in on the Snowdon thread you may get innundated with requests for sponsorship mind!

    HarperPR My destiny offers me up like a lamb

    Good luck, Andi! Are you going to be getting in plenty of training before the event?

    Is it just Andi and Katrina then from here up for this?

    PM about to be sent, Andi. Happy to help.

    And he's the last person I'm sponsoring who isn't Harpic, just to warn everyone. ;)

    I really wish I could go on this but I suspect it just won't happen - too much work stress and the like, I'll be lucky to walk halfway up Arthur's Seat before June... :crying:

    Arthurs Seat/Snowdon

    Arthurs Seat [Caeder Idris] my favourite mountain where we spent many days up there in a tent by the black lake with an amazing backdrop of a 1000 foot cliff behind. We tripped and we skipped above the clouds composing songs and playing guitars in 1972ish. We made a pact together that we would return at the dawn of the millennium 28 years later. Steve, my Pompey friend, remembered and reminded me in 2000! Not too onerish, a nice gentle climb following the stream up from Lake Bala.Would thoroughly recommend it to any aspiring mountaineer as it is absolutely awesome. The Brecons are also pretty easy to do if you know the quick way up from the south side then it's pratically all flat along the top for miles.

    Ancient legend says that if a man spends one night on the Caeder Idris he'll come down insane. Well that must explain it then with regards to me being an ex-loony on the bus, because we were up there for ages mentally and physically. Mad? I've been mad for years! And proud of it!

    I think Ian Cropton is coming [hopefully I 'll be using his kindly transport and personality?] but sometimes he doesn't reply for days if not weeks. You could give him a nudge on his My Space. I have emailed LHSF and they have not replied for a few days..
    ...do you have to register with the £100 first and then follow on with the sponsorship monies when you've completed the onerous odyessy? Had a sore foot for about a month now and desperately hoping it will be alright.. just a blister which has developed into a very painful callus...no money for chirpodists, any medical advisors out there? Shall I just cut it out with my rusty Stanley knife? I presume the gig at the top will be in the Cafe?

    I dont think it will be in the cafe, and you want to pray for an improvement in the weather
