I should be able to get there a little early to help with pouring, so can also bring the printed placemats.

Only a couple of (potential) food orders to go (you know who you are-Tom!) and so this should be ready to go by the weekend. Most of the bottles now deposited at the B&F and thanks to those that have offered to decant and pre-pour. I should now be able to help with the latter as the work commitment has dematerialised and so I hope to be there before 5pm.

Details of the costs (credits and debits) are being circulated and thank-you to those that have already paid.

If Tom doesn't provide his order, order him pate to start and steam (medium rare) as his main.

No food for me on this occasion thank you. But I have arranged for childcare, so I shall be at the B&F from about 2.30pm to help decant, pour and set up. I will also be dropping the 1983 GC in earlier in the day.

Could someone please make a quick check of the food order. I have ordered the same as me for CSD, and will update if he advises he wants something different. And if he can't make it, then RLC is in play and this is also what he would like to order.

Food order looks sensible, but I haven't matched it off against the posts above.

My only question is about the strike through of the "no egg" on Ian's order - could that confuse the kitchen resulting in them not knowing whether to include it or not?

That's unfortunate. Our reserve (Ray) is already in and so is there anyone else that wishes to attend at this 11th hour?

To facilitate decanting and pre-pouring, I've just printed the neck tags, cork display sheets and pre-pour sheets so — whoever is printing — please save yourself some weight and only print the voting sheets, placemats and tasting note sheets.

Am I just bringing the '34 - or is anyone adopting from me that I've forgotten...?

Feels strange to only bring one bottle..

Tom - decanting is underway... and we shall look forward to whatever second bottle you would like to bring at your own discretion.
