Hi
Can I please be added to the wait list. There was a request to add me in January from AHB but I don't appear to be on the list.
Many thanks

Right it's about time

I re-ignited this thread

as it's now just over two months to go. No need for further reconfirmations of attendance although last time around no reconfirmations were received from Ben and Chris D and so if these are not received a week from now then we will work our way down the reserve list

Thanks
Yeah, right funding cracker you spayed on the tracks. Churff, anot opthj and a metrocard might get you home, but it won't do aboutique the removal of your trousers, blotto.

Whilst I appreciate the literary endeavors of my forumchums, you're all wrong. and anyway meant to guess only AT (@) the tasting (sort of as incentive to make it our greatest tasting yet,}

befitting the untimely demise of what was once my most reliable source of vp value, not only in 70, but Harder years like 77, 80, 83, 85, 91, 97 and 03. Now it is quevedo or 35+ years old (86sqvp is 31!?)

First post now edited to confirm the attendees and bottles allocated (all of those who have bottles allocated have been contacted although a couple of confirmations are still outstanding-you know who you are!).

No success on the Industry Guest front but it does mean that all on the waiting list (who have also been contacted) now have a berth and we are up to full complement. In terms of logistics, I'd welcome thoughts about whether bottles should be brought to the B&F and decanted there or whether to leave it the individuals concerned to bring decanted bottles (where possible)? Unfortunately, I won't be able to help with any decanting at the B&F as I have a meeting that day and unlikely to be there before 6.30pm and so if this is the preferred route (even in part), it will require volunteers... Bottles would needd to be rested at the B&F beforehand (next week's tasting provides the opportunity for some).

There are costs associated with this tasting which I will confirm by PM once all have advised their costs.

Sounds good Ian. Not sure yet what is happening on the 10th for me, so will need to wait until nearer the time to figure out if I can help with set up, or will need to deposit the bottle early or bring it on the night decanted.

I would recommend leaving bottles at B&F and decanting on the day. Bottle seem to show better when we do this.

I'll bring my bottles to the B&F on Sep 28th.

I can spend a couple of hours at lunchtime decanting bottles which have been left in advance. That should be enough time to double-decant everything leaving us only with the challenge of finding the time to pre-pour (which requires about 60-90 minutes immediately prior to the start).

Can I please send my 2 GC bottles to someone who is going on the 28th and can leave them at the B&F for me.
Cheers

If that doesn't work for any reason, let me know.

Ben, Alex, thanks-I'm likely to be bringing four bottles already on Thursday (including a mag) and so another two would prove difficult for me.

Incidentally, first post now updated.

The majority of bottles for this tasting were deposited at the B&F last week (the glasses order was also confirmed). Can I ask that the remaining bottles be deposited before the tasting please?

I now need to compile the food order (any volunteers to assist me with this?) and so can I ask these to be posted within this thread and by this weekend if at all possible (if someone can do the honours of replicating or linking to the menu that would be appreciated!).

Am now going to start sending out by e-mail or PM confirmation of costs.

My usual food order please - no starter, medium rare sirloin steak with chips, dessert (if any) decided on the night.

CMAG would like Cornish Crab salad as starter, followed by medium rare sirloin steak with chips.
