Thu 13th July - La nuit avant le jour de Bastille

Post by AHB » 14:41 Mon 10 Jul 2017

Anyone free the evening of Thursday this week to get together and share some port?

  2. IDJ
Venue can be decided when we know how many people will be coming along, but will probably be the Boot & Flogger unless the team would like to suggest another venue which we could try at short notice. Or we might head for Bar Douro...

Current draft of the placemats.

Excellent, we are a quorum. Much more fun than being a quorum on my own.

I suggest a theme of "bring a blinded bottle of vintage port" unless you have something else you'd like to try?

Will seek permission. But tomorrow would be better timing for the seeking.

Theme?

It has just come to my attention that there is a Twenty20 match at Lords on Thursday. Although the game is sold out, we may be able to get 3 tickets. If we can get tickets, would people be interested in using Lords as a venue for our offline on the 13th?

Note that you are only allowed to bring one bottle into the ground with you and this bottle should be 6-18% alcohol so please decant into a screw-top wine bottle to avoid any possible unpleasantness.

Of course, it may not be possible to get any tickets so this post might end up being for academic interest only.

I couldn't get tickets for Lords so we'll start for with the plan to meet at the Boot & Flogger.
