That would make sense. We could maybe do something a bit less structured before the BFT?

Just to confirm... This is no longer going ahead on the 21st April as Daniel cannot attend, so will be rearranged for another date. There is now another thread for a tasting on the 21st April now.

First post edited. We need a new date. Perhaps our fearless leader could suggest dates?

Recent declarations: 1896, 1900, 1904, 1908, 1912, 1917, 1920, 1922, 1922, 1924, 1927, 1934, 1942?, 1945, 1955, 1960, 1963, 1966, 1970, 1975, 1977, 1980, 1983, 1985, 1991, 1994, 1997, 2000, 2003, and 2007.

So we are missing 1896, 1900, 1904, 1908, 1912, 1917, 1920, 1922, 1922, 1942?, 1945, 1955, 1960, 1997.

Has anyone heard from Daniel recently? It would be nice to nudge this tasting back onto the agenda.

Quick question. Mayson reports that Gould Campbell went to the Symingtons in 1970. Had GC previously been part of Graham? Or was that a separate deal in 1970?

I had always thought it was a separate deal, but now that you mention it, I haven't found anywhere online the entity that sold the brand to the Symingtons.

Tellingly, there is no Wikipedia for GC, no website for GC, and no acknowledgment that the brand even exists at several Symington establishments (e.g., Dow's Bomfim Lodge, etc).

The legacy of Garret Gould deserves a modern champion. A visionary and a risk taker. A person passionate about sharing the joy of vintage port with the world.

At a small gathering last night I found myself volunteering (being volunteered?) to take on the mantle of progressing this blessed GC vertical. So the first job is to select a date and so as October (2017) was mooted last night let's plump for Monday 9 October 2017 (at the B&F-subject to availability).

Second job is to ask for reconfirmations of attendance for those that originally signed up (who will receive priority )plus confirmations from anyone else still to show their hand. At the same time as the aforementioned please once again confirm what GC you have and would be willing to provide?

Am open to views but my suggestion is that we go as deep as practicable and up to (and including) 1994.

Third job is just to ask for some support from the Administrators (JDAW?) in tidying matters up (post and link-wise) since my capabilities are sorely limited in this regard. :D

B&F closes 10pm on Mondays. Is there a reason why not Tuesday?

Shows hand.

I have twice as much GC as Derek...
