I can't do Wednesday. I could possibly do Monday or Tuesday. Possibly.

Green Room works nicely with six. If we get to 8+ then the Red Room would be better, but I might not notice extra posts until I’m home, late in the day. So if we have ≥two more, please would somebody who is alert then phone the B&F (+44 20 7407 1184) to request same, reporting status back to this thread. Thank you.

Ideally before 23:15 Monday.


Please could the printing be done by somebody who will arrive early. Volunteers?

I will be present.

I can print, although I'll be travelling from Bracknell so unlikely to be early. As no-one else has volunteered to do so, I will.

I am bringing port. I briefly flirted with the idea of bringing not-Port — and then came to my senses. I decanted at 08.00.

I have decanted and looking good but one is very low on shoulder...angels certainly had their share on that one...I am also presenting blind.
