Greatly reducing the likelihood of the attendance of those currently on the reserve list?
Having consulted one of my colleagues from Actuarial it seems that a number of the members currently in places 1 to 14 will be unavailable to attend and therefore in no need of a runner. A greater than average number of cold winters between now and 2051 might mean we require more reserves!

Phew.
Indeed, but most of them will not be born until around 2025 so we can neither name them nor answer as to whether they are left or right handed for quite some time.

Yes, we all die. But are then replaced by descendants — so the reserves never make it.

Are the dead replaced by their children or by the reserves?

Phew.
A relief for jdaw1 as he will be allowed to continue to attend following his planned career change?

No substitutes; no ‘runners’; no bequeathing places.

Agreed. But those able to attend are permitted to bring a non-drinking assistant if required.

My cryogenically frozen body may be there, which technically isn't bequeathing a place as it's me. Just a stiffer version. Someone else attending is welcome to help me consume my share of the Port.

I'll be 86. Will you wipe all my dribbles?
