Alas I can’t, but will happily make the paperwork.

Edit: current draft of the placemats (and the parameters by which made).

That whole week is a no-go for me. Have fun!

If it proves difficult to find attendees, the first two weeks in October look good...

One is a quorum; two is a crowd. So CPR and AHB are go. Theme?

Which doesn’t stop Flash arranging the following date.

Unfortunately, ditto for me regarding this week but like Mike, good for the first couple of weeks of next month (plus w/c 26/09)...

I've only just read this post - and burst out laughing in the office.

Should I bring a bottle to London tomorrow morning?

I hope and intend that it will happen but ... it is about 50% probable that I will have to be in Ipswich on Tuesday which may make it difficult to also be in London. As soon as I know for certain, I will say. Perhaps you could bring a bottle in case it is needed.

We have "table 12" booked - at the far end of the ground floor on the left hand side. Luke will add an extra table so we have space for our glasses. Booked from 18.30.

I might be able to print tasting mats tomorrow since there are so few of us. Let me know if I need to.

You might also be pleased(?) to know I will be in Ipswich on Thursday.

Unfortunately I don't think I'll have time to do so on the visit. Sorry.
