Re: Cockburn Vertical, Tue 2nd Oct 2018

there could be a Word file in the current format, with everybody’s default order in it. Perhaps that Word file could be downloadable from the default order thread. And perhaps someone could offer to administer it as and when new or amended defaults are posted? The first of those problems has been s...

Re: Cockburn Vertical, Tue 2nd Oct 2018

I thought one of the points of the default food thread was that the default order was taken as the order unless the individual actively and explicitly specifies something different? Kind of defeats the purpose if everyone needs to restate their default order every time does it not? Sorry, I hadn't ...

I can get there a bit earlier, maybe 4pm? If I start decanting the younger stuff first, and work towards older, then if someone else can get there for 5.30 to help with pouring that would be great.
thats fantastic, Mike. Thank you.

I hope to be able to arrive early to help pour, but am currently in a similar position regarding uncertainty of work commitments so will be unsure of my arrival time until much closer to the day.

Do we have any volunteers who could assist with setting up, decanting and pre-pouring on the day please?
