TPF 2015 Offline Summary

Post by AHB » 19:39 Wed 04 Feb 2015

I thought that it might be of use to have a summary or index to past offlines and possible future offlines being organised through or attended by posters on TPF. With a single summary list it should be easier for people to see quickly whether there is an offline coming up that they would like to attend.

All offlines on the list are set out with the following information:
Date (Location) Theme
Mon 19th Jan (London) Fonseca at the Boot & Flogger
Mon 9th Feb (London) Port from the 1970s at the Boot & Flogger
Sun 15th Feb (London) Lunch at Simpson's in the Strand

Thu 26th Mar (London) Blind with a clue at the Boot & Flogger
Tue 31st Mar (London) Farewell to Magnus, with five 1965s, two 1966s and a 1980
Fri 10th Apr (London) The Third Doty Cup Challenge

Wed 15th Apr (London) Old Claret at Otto's
Tue 5th May (London) The Best of the Fonseca Bicentennial Tastings
Sat 9th May (London) A 1945 Horizontal at the RAF Club
