Re: Wed 02 Apr 2014, a trial of Graham 1980, at The Bung Hol

I had the slight advantage when CPR guessed first and guessed G77 for my bottle, which made me think "maybe he thinks mine tasted like his also, so he will have guessed what he brought". Clear as mud? Or tasty as G77??

Any way you can reroute through London on way home? Also, the date may change in any case...currently in the process of trying to resolve that :)

Re: 1997 Maturity Evaluation, TBH, Thurs 26 June 2014

I hesitate to confuse things further! I wonder if I could put myself down as a reserve, or even attendee if currently room, at what would be my first offline (although perhaps depends a little on which date gets chosen). Still, toe in the water etc. ...... I have a few 97s to offer - Dow here, and ...

Re: 1997 Maturity Evaluation, TBH, Thurs 26 June 2014

I was already coming to the conclusion that this was going to be difficult as we had established a roster of attendees before a date! I propose a different way forward to find a date. I'll find five or six options scattered across later May, June and July, and PM everyone to get your availability fo...

OK all that remains is to divine a date which most/all of us can do. Bear with me if we need a few shots at finding one that is good for many.

Does that mean Vau should be considered "over and above" the 18 slots on three A4 placemats, as it is proposed to be a DM to assist with additional juice to sustain the participants?
