And the winner is

Friends, collies, Corbynites

Thank you very much to my entrants for entering into the spirit of my competition.

Golly, gosh what a lot of ideas. Why did I ever say I wanted to be a judge, it’s very hard work; almost as hard as climbing a Munro.

I find that having to pick a winner is lying a bit heavily on my shoulders and it’s all got a bit too much for a young dog like me so, I’m going to enlist the help of The Munro Society and the Scottish Mountaineering Association to see if we can have a v-v-v big competition and then someone really clever will have to be the judge. B says this is a good way of advertising our Munro challenge and spreading the word, so we can get lots more dosh, for our charities. I do hope you don’t think this is a cop out. Anyway, there will be prizes for all:
For the Cousins family there will be a nice packet of yummy treats winging its way to Tink, my erstwhile correspondent.
For Tom there will be a pint of Guinness, when he next meets B and for Mary Mc., there will be the drink of her choice on the same occasion (wish I could be there too).
B and David get the best prize of all, to keep me of course, what could be better, hee, hee.

If I’m able to get a big competition going, with a bit of a fanfare, I will be approaching a distillery to see if they will sponsor it. If so, I will put forward all your ideas and, if lucky, you might be in for a lovely dram or two, though I can’t stand the stuff myself.

These were all the ideas so far:

A Mastiff of Munrosa
A Marilyn of Munros
Munro Marauders

The singular nouns were,

Maggers
Munroistas
Munroeites
Munrose
Munroist

Then, in a collective sense, any of the following to go with the single words above

A suffer-age of
A fellowship of
A bevy of
A bothy of
An agony of
A flaskful of
A sporran
A cleft of
An agony of
A peak of
A band of
A Compeed of
A crown of
Balls of (which I really like, given my favourite pastime, when I’m not climbing Munros, though I’ve a little reservation, given the nature of my early operation).

Also paws of for the doggy Munro climers, this was my suggestion.

  1. Judge’s decision: disqualified because of late entry and the taking of banned substances,

    (believed to be XXX Guinness).

  2. Dear Tom,

    how lovely to hear from you on my dog blog and all about my competition too. I’m currently looking into the use of ‘banned’ substances to give us a bit of extra ooph on the Munros. I think B could do with one or two and – you might know this- but she is especially partial to a drop of Guinnes.

    Love Ben x
