Is there some confusion?
You have answered your own question.

Oh! :oops: :oops: :oops:
Is there some confusion? have we got 2 venues booked? is this a safari tasting?
1) Yes
2) Yes, it would appear..
3) No

So, AHB perused the thread and didn't spot the booking, I perused the thread and didn't spot the booking, and JDAW couldn't remember if he'd made the booking, it being rather a long time ago..

Before I cancel the second booking, the law of sod being what it is, perhaps JDAW could check his first booking is still in the B&F's book..

..it being rather a long time ago..!

OK - a question:

Do we go for an eighteen bottle lineup and include '94 and '00 - or go for a sixteen bottle event leaving them out?

I have plans to travel down with the oldest bottles some time next week - anyone fancy an informal meet to make better use of the journey..?

Personally, I'd stop at the 85; I might have been tempted to include 94, but not 2000.

I can't make it, but there is already an emergency next Tue, if you haven't seen.

sorry team, the Emergency has been called off as it was declared prematurely and the thread deleted.

Tom - are you providing all the bottles, or are you aiming for others to bring some? If others are required to contribute, what's needed from others needs to be communicated.

Agree with Phil and probably stop at 85. I have to hand the 63,70 and 72 with the 70 the easiest of the three to be able to provide.

Probably most - but I'm checking with people who say they have bottles to see if they can supply for less..

Draft of the placemats added to first post.
• I’ve somewhat guessed who might bring what. To be corrected.

Could everyone confirm they are still up for this, and if they wish to deviate from their standard food order, please shout..

(and if you're not on the standard food list, please advise..)

Have only one question mark left on that front, but as of now it's looking like an 'Offley' good value event!
