What would happen if there were to be some kind of emergency, in London, on Tuesday 21st July 2015?
Has anyone even given this any thought?
Are there any readers who would like to feel that they were a little better prepared in this horrifying eventuality?

Personnel:
  1. DJ;
  2. JDAW;
  3. AHB;
  4. CPR;
  5. IDJ;
  6. MPM.
Withdrawn / reserve list / unlikely: Current draft of the placemats; and current draft of the food order.

I will be working in London that day so could, perhaps, stay on in the evening. Life is complicated slightly by the fact that Mike has already scheduled an emergency for Monday 27th.

Perhaps if there is not much availability from others, this might be an opportunity for us to have that dinner I keep suggesting to you?

Could your emergency be sated on the 27th? I sadly need to decline the 21st.

I'll be in France on the 27th. 21st would be the only date possible for me.

This is looking better.

Done: there are images of the current draft of the placemats in the first post.

There is now a chance I can make the 21st. I'll try and confirm in a week or two.

Derek and I appear to be incapable of appearing at the same tasting unless either the total ages of the wines present exceeds 1000 years or else we are not in the UK; mysterious forces seem to prevent this. Fortunately for Derek in this case I can't make the 21st July, so hopefully he will not receive a sudden summons to a remote Scottish town for the week.

That would be rather good. I don't think I've seen you since that amazing Croft vertical we did in Boston in 2007.

Link to a Croft vertical in Boston, February 2008 (which reminds me that thread is still awaiting pictures).

Well, my project has been moved to Sept, so I will be unable to attend :crying: I am anxious to have a portathon as I don't know anyone who fancies port like us in Boston...

When in September? Particularly convenient would be Wednesday 9th September (if appropriate reply in that thread rather than this).
