Re: Tuesday 19th December - 77@40

Please could somebody check the food order (my order being different to that in the thread, but hopefully only mine).

That done, if it is correct, pls message Charles to send it to the B&F: we have orders from both menus, and should verify whether that is permitted.

Have we one Niepoort, or three? Are we at twenty glasses? Has the B&F been told?

If Mike is printing, then the placemats can be on a trimmed A2, which will use less space than A3+A4. Is he?
