Point of order: twenty one days notice of "an emergency" is stretching things a little too far :wink:

I'll be in London, but engaged in the theatre. Perhaps another day, before the 27th?

That's a small queue at the end of October. Perhaps you could join us around 19:45?

I'm at a meeting that day but should be able to accommodate and so count me in.

Should it be blind-I'd be happy with sighted but will go with the flow.

No chance for me to join you that week, so I won't be able to assist with the drinking of Derek's cellar remnants.

This emergency falls within the half term holiday of our local educational authority. Sadly, that means I am likely to be elsewhere when the unexpected emergency strikes.

May I take a place if there is space? I'll be flying down from Scotland that day so if anybody attending has anything to offer for adoption that would be much appreciated. If not i'm sure I can find something.
