Is there a date?
No matter how many times I read that sentence I keep hearing the word "Magnum" in my headuncle tom wrote:We are probably looking at a two bottle event here.

We know the venue. What is the date?Cookie wrote:I am extremely happy to report that the date and venue for this event has now been confirmed

I think this is also the first day of Olympic competition - the football starts before the opening ceremony. What chance a game involving Portugal v GB that night?Cookie wrote:Date now confirmed 25th July 2012.

Different flags have different width:height ratios, including 2:1, 19:10, 5:3, 18:11, 3:2, and 10:7. So if each flag is left-aligned and the height of that Port’s TN rows, the most obvious features would be the non-consistent lengths. But if the lengths are consistent, the variations in heights would be obvious. They could be arranged diagonally across the page, evenly horizontally spaced, but I don’t like that either.AHB wrote:but - perhaps - include them as a watermark on the tasting note sheet.
Are you suggesting that it is easy to find a vector description of the flags of Canada and the USSR? (Mexico and Spain are forfeiting their heraldry.)JacobH wrote:Considering the inclusion of flags, it’s a good thing that the you decided to stop at 1948 and didn’t try going back to the first London Olympics, or even the games before 1948...
Oh, no, just that the historically-accurate flag of the host of the 1936 Olympics is not one that is particularly acceptable today...jdaw1 wrote:Are you suggesting that it is easy to find a vector description of the flags of Canada and the USSR?

That says that the centre of Gamma Crucis is 1/6 of the fly below the top, and that the centre of Alpha Crucis is 1/6 of the fly above the bottom. Yet in that PDF the distances of those centres to the nearest edges are not equal, Alpha Crucis being closer. Indeed, the bottom of the blue of the Cross of St. Andrew should be below the top of the flag by one third of the hoist of the Union Jack, so one sixth the height of the whole flag. But extensions of those St Andrew lines do not go through the marked centre of Gamma Crucis, and Alpha Crucis is a different distance again.
So at least one of the following is true.
• The words are correct, the drawing is wrong;
• The words are wrong, the drawing is correct;
• I have mis-understood.
Please, which? Please, what is correct?
Whoops! How very embarrassing.A representative of those Australian authorities wrote:We have found that there is some distortion of the flag elements in the pdf file so please go by the words.
Thanks!Cookie wrote:For those asking to be placed on the reserve list, your request is duly noted, however, I do know that the venue can accomodate 24 but I do not know if the Ambassador has any other dignitaries or sports officianados that he would like to attend.
Enquiries are being made at this time and I will update the attendees list as and when I have an answer.
