I have checked Erskine May back to 27 December 1703 and can see no precedent that would cause the chair to rule to the contrary.

Thank you all for re-confirming now that the date has been set.

Could others please do the same?

Tony has now replaced Jasper on the attendee list.

I vote ’14, then ’13, then ’16.
May I request September 2008, please?
September 2008, or January 2008? Assuming the latter.

The placemats of 28th January 2008 are bad: ugliness is always bad; there is redundancy between the Titles and the parameters since renamed to Overtitles; and the suit symbols should have been done with FlightSeparations. Just no.

Perhaps you could use the 2008 placemats as a frame of reference but utilise the improvements made since to create a modern alternative version that evokes memories of days gone by?

I shall be at at trade fair in Asia.
That is a great pity. Unfortunately, with this many people and so few practical dates to choose from it was somewhat inevitable that one or more would have two drop out. We hope to see you at another event soon.
Thank you very much - I fervently hope so, but I am overseas more than half the year and that makes it difficult to attend most tastings, but I look forward to making it one day ! :-)

I'm not sure who D.G. is but it will be great to see you and the Sandeman. Thankfully this will still be pre-Brexit so you shouldn't have to wait too long at the border :wink:

I have a recent release of g66 from SFE which is one of 300 bottles released In 2016 - I realize it might double up but I need a special occasion to open it.

That would be most welcome. It will be interesting to compare it with the one I am bringing as the recent release will probably have been re-corked.

As MrFrodo has not posted since Sep 2018 and has not responded to my PM request to confirm attendance he is unfortunately relegated to the reserve list.

nac and his SW66 is now promoted to the attendee list :D

Please note that as a result of the above the Dow is no longer in the line-up. If anyone who has not yet chosen a bottle can supply one that would be great.

The Food order has been created. Please check to avoid disappointment.

I do not have standard orders from Justin or Caparica. Please order from the menu.
