Re: Tuesday 19th December - 77@40

Just to confirm, the T77 and SW77 were deposited at the B&F on Tuesday. They are in a black 3-bottle carrier with another bottle which is for Phil. Whoever is decanting, please don't accidentally open Phil's bottle as well :shock:

If Mike is printing, then the placemats can be on a trimmed A2, which will use less space than A3+A4. Is he?
I’ll be flying in from Amsterdam on the Tuesday afternoon, so if I am to print it would need to be Monday.

Anyone meeting up for a pre-drink-if so, where?
I could be tempted. There's always the Davy's place just off King Street? 5.30pm?

That would be great fun. I'm in. Have no Warre LBV that I know of though...
