Unfortunately, that is a no.

I will be printing at around 2:30, so any more changes need to be in by then.

Hi Julian, Derek

super, thanks a lot. Since it is raining today do we not feel there might be a possibilty that a cricket enthusiast we know very well may join us in the evening? Despite he expected otherwise. But only if the cricket is "whitewashed" as I expect.

regards

Could you add a CHR? And perhaps we should have a spare, too?

Is BMHR confirmed for this event? My reading of ‟assuming Thursday does not become the said event...I would be keen” is that he can’t come but I might be wrong.

If he is coming we will need to transfer to the tunnel on arrival.

The placemat request from DRT, by Skype IM, included ‟BMHR possible, so count him in”. If you wish to instruct otherwise, please do so unambiguously.

My post was intended as a question, rather than an instruction, and your answer is the sort of further information I was hoping would result, so no further instructions from me.

And interpreted as such.

PM sent to BMHR in the hope of eliciting something more definite.

I am quite confident that - by the end of the night - some use will have been made of BMHR's circle even if he can't attend!

BMHR the man (probably not there is already a spare) or BMHR the non-vintage Port (undoubtedly)? I guess ‟circle” means the latter.

Plus a big thank you to jdaw1 for drafting and accomodating multiple subsequent requests....despite this tasting being attended by at least three people capable of producing it themselves!

Mind you, jdaw1 has no doubt learnt from experience that this is what happens when TPF admin is left to other people...

Regrettably I shall not be joining you tonight. I am still hopeful the main event might take place later this month as I do have a suitable candidate!

Updated draft of the placemats.
  • ”“BMHR the man;
  • +‟+”, +‟â—Š”, +‟” ”, +‟★” (will that be enough?).
There is still a little over half an hour to the printing deadline speak soon or hold thy peace.

(Edit: seven-pointed star for seven people.)

Other than WS1's speculation on the behaviour of the weather, has anyone received any indication from AHB that he might, in fact, attend?

I ask not from a place-mat perspective, but because those arriving early might want to decamp to the Tunnel (rather than squeeze 7 in the board room) if there is a realistic prospect of his attendance...

DRT cannot access TPF from work, but reports by email that printing will happen at about 16:30.
