April 10th in London

Post by AHB » 09:04 Tue 11 Mar 2008

After March 18th, my next confirmed trip into London will be Thursday April 10th. Is anyone interested in meeting up for some port on that Thursday night?

I'll need to turn my mebbe into a nah, work schedule isn't going to allow me to get from meeting in Sheffield on Thu pm to London Offline on Thu pm+ to Sheffield meeting at 09:00 on Friday. Sorry if this shows a lack of commitment to the cause :oops:

We're now up to 3 definites and a mebbe. That sounds like a quorum for some port.

Anyone else available is welcome to join the party. I suggest a blind tasting again but I'm open to alternative suggestions.

Arrangements now confirmed. Meet between 6pm and 7pm at the Crusting Pipe, Covent Garden in London - we have the Board Room booked.

Still one place available if anyone would like to attend at the last minute.

Julian - any chance of a set of tasting mats please? 5 people attending (AHB, AB, NS, CG, BR); all right handed; 6 ports to be served blind. Thanks!
