I shall be hoping to help Derek celebrate his birthday with a fine bottle of the great 1965 vintage.

If it isn't seen as bad form, could I please abstain from the food...but I am more than happy to contribute to the service etc.

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Monday.

Will you already have eaten? I am questioning not its form, rather its wisdom.

I am scheduled to have a late lunch on Monday, and so shouldn't really be having another meal out at the moment. I shall try to make sure that I have enough sustenance not to get too merry :lol:

Thank you to JDAW for taking control - the week turned out to be madder than expected and it is great to see we have a significant team willing to tackle the emergency :D

See you all on Monday.

I can confirm attendance. Food wise may I order the salmon followed by steak M/R? Vintage TBC tomorrow when I arrive home, if that's too late let me know.
