TBH London 8 January

Post by RonnieRoots » 08:35 Tue 31 Dec 2013

I will be in London again from 6 to 10 January and would love to see old (and new) friends and share a glass. Probably only just a relaxed get together, could even be with some beers and wines. :wink:
Let me know any preferred dates and I'll try to pick a day that works for everyone.

8th might work for me. I need to negotiate one of my 2 January passes...

I won’t know until closer to the day which would be true whatever the date. So go with the consensus of Wednesday 8th January. (And please change the title of the thread to the specific date.)

Placemat question: blind or sighted?

Good, 8th it is. Thanks Alex for booking TBH. I have no preference for blind or sighted, both are fine with me.
I will try to find a nice bottle when in London, as I have exactly 1 bottle of Port left here in Oman, and that needs to be drunk together with LadyR. :wink:

You’re in but as the extra unnamed person.

Posted: the parameters by which the placemats were made.

All 6 seats round the table are now taken. Further late comers are still welcome, but early warning would guarantee a seat being added to the table.

I should add that we're not in the private room - that's being used by a large private party tomorrow night. Our table is available from 6pm.

The day has come, and I know that I’m not. Sorry team, and especially sorry to Ronnie.

Only five, so there is a spare.

Enjoy.

"DRT" did not look happy when it was decanted this morning so there is now also a "DRT2" :lol:

Sorry to hear that JDAW cannot join us. Would a team petition to Mrs W help?

With this news, my self control and discipline are broken. I will go home and decant something now. However, i will be trying to drink lightly!

Sorry to hear you won't be there Julian, hopefully next time.
I will try to be there between 6-6.30 tonight, if my course finishes on time.
See you all tonight!

Mrs W has cancelled Mr W’s date with Mrs W. For reasons lying presumably within the Magisterium of magic rather than science.

About to make an emergency decant. Will be there at 6:45ish.
