The beer is 'what we want' well done. Thanks to all those helpers who kept us well fed and of course the most friendly company you meet anywhere in this world.
The singing as usual is of a high standard and every one encouraging.
Alan please do not stop running this weekend. Thanks one and all. Allan.

'You have to thank Sara for the food as she + Nicky White cooked most of it. I just washed the platesetc + I saw a lot of the hard work they put in. See you next year Graham ( Also now known as Marigold apparently.Have thought about auctioning my gloves for Sara's charity'

Thanks for the thanks but all credit goes to Nicky who spends hours slaving away over a hot stove before the festival and does it gluten free. She's a super star in my eyes thanks Nicky. Plus I am not the only one, so thanks to Grace, Liz, Jude, Mark, Graham, Colin, Tom. Dick, Harry...................................
I would bid on your gloves but I'd be worried they might expect me to use them next year and I don't love washing up that much! So I'll just donate a bit more to Jenny instead.

oops that's as bad as mentioning CD's I think. Whilst I am on the boat I will remember the Mary Ellen Carter, in fact I don't think I will ever forget it. Thanks Again.

Brilliant weekend...and as a bonus our table managed to capture the piggy's head this year despite the alarm set by the Task Force. Our journey home wasn't blighted by traffic - but just by my non sense of direction while Andrew was asleep - We saw the White Horse from a totally diferent direction this year!   Big, big thank yous to all who helped to make this such a wonderful weekend. Here's to next year! Special good luck wishes to Sara's (Bavis) daughter Jenny for her charity channel swim in the very near future (wow what a woman she is). Please keep us posted Sara!

Thanks to Alan and Nicky for another fabulous wail. Also all the people behind the scenes, in the kitchen, task force, those running the sings, behind the bar.. me for bringing the cream safely from Cornwall!!! The beer was execellent and I appreciated the discussion with Russ re the porter. It has excellent potential. He just has to bring his final brew for me to try in Cornwall before it goes on sale. The only sad thing about the Wail, for me, is that it signals the end of the summer.

Daughter - was that you mentioned on the Johnnie Walker show - driving back from Verwood to Essex? Just caught it as we pulled into Fleet services after a gruelling 70 miles at an average speed of 28mph along the M3.

The beer was extremely good, I didn't get enough of it but next year, I will try harder!

This was my first 'Wail' and I had a really great weekend.

Very many thanks to all those who put in so much hard work to make it such a success. I was lovely to see old friends and make new ones - and to have such a bloody good sing, even at 3.30am this morning!

One MAJOR adverse criticism....not enough of the 'Gold' beer!

Ta all for positive feedback about the beer, all constructive thoughts would also be welcome, of course. I'll get the boy to chat back when he finally climbs out of his bath of muscle soak!!! (Perhaps a separate beer thread?!).

Yep, journey back to Essex was interesting and he heroically drove all the way!!

How fantastic to see you all, gorgeous weekend, love to all. I'll type up the words to our banquet song and post to Idris, would love to see the others 'coz I couldn't make out half of the funny lines at the time! xxxx

Jack is still 'dry' and looked fabulous in his new Icelandic jumper.

Noreen, I'm not bringing the red one from Maine, just the black velvet one for the banquet. Jon has already decided that he's sharing it so it should be really cosy under there!!!

Last night at around midnight we realised that we had not seen Isolde of the White Paws for a long time, so thinking I had shut her in the garage went on a hunt for her. No Isolde! panic sets in... had she curled up in the builders van... It was at that moment that inspiration hit me. She had been 'helping' pack the van for Wareham. There she was curled up fast asleep ready in the camper to come to Wareham with us this morning. It must be that she has heard so much about it that she wanted to come too.
