Any thoughts re. the RAF contaminated Port conspiracy theory? Are we still using their glasses, decanters and funnels?

We will be using their glasses, but may take the precaution of rinsing them all out before pouring the ports. Similarly for the decanters and funnels (although we may use our own trusty, collapsible funnels).

Step shall be taken to try to prevent an increase in the RAF contaminated port theory.

Is that a ‟+1” of bottles, or of both people and bottles? If of both, what should the new person’s placename say? (Suggestion: not ‟CMAG’s +1”.)

Agreed. I am awaiting confirmation of the name of the person and the additional wine. I thought you may wish to put placeholders in now as it may affect the overall layout of the placemets so would allow you to do any resultant trickery now and then update the labels with the correct names later. If no trickery necessary then perhaps just wait. Feel free to harass CMAG by email for the info :lol:

No trickery. Not hassling CMAG: leaving that to you.

My train is Wednesday morning first thing. So I need to know soon. Like, not too late on Tuesday. I.e., within eighteen hours of this post.

Updated.
CMAG’s + 1 cancelled. Updated. Somebody please look and endeavour to check.

JacobH: if there’s a problem after today please would you repair? The .ps files are in the same place as the .pdf, save only the change in extension.
