Fonseca and Smith Woodhouse magnums deposited this afternoon. (Yes, I know what I said earlier. Just goes to show how unpredictable life can be.)

I think I have found a replacement guest, loosely from the wine industry. More later if he confirms.

First post updated.

We are now down to 15, but all bottles now at the B&F or being delivered on Monday, thus it should be a good evening.

I will send the food order tomorrow - last chance for any amendments / corrections!

CMAG has asked if he could bring a guest to replace Cookie. If permitted, his guest's initials are TB, presumed to be right handed and would like to eat a potted crab starter followed by a medium sirloin steak.

I am afraid I will have to withdraw from this tasting. Very sorry for the short notice and very much hope a replacement can be found.
Charles I have sent you a PM.

There is a strong chance I may now be able to make this tasting (replacing one Simon with another), but don't have an appropriate bottle contribution. If I double-check on Monday, would that be ok?

Decanter labels assembled and posted to “Port People (1st Feb), ℅ The Boot & Flogger”.

Decanter labels not entirely satisfactory: small change to the software planned.
