With regards to the Port fit for a Queen's new subject tasting what about Tuesday the 13th of February? I have the citizenship ceremony on Monday the 12th so that date could fit nicely.
Attendees:
  1. WPS (F60 from JDAW);
  2. JDAW (N70);
  3. DRL (W70);
  4. DRT (Cr70);
  5. AHB (F63);
  6. CPR (G70);
  7. IDJ (T66);
  8. PW (Ni70).
Food order.

Please put me down as a possible attendee. I might have to withdraw if something happens to my second knee between now and then.

May I suggest that "German pours" should be obligatory for all if there are fewer that eight attendees.

Congratulations, Wolfgang,

It is with deep regret that I must decline to add my name to those inviting Mr Wolfgang Starz to celebrate his becoming a subject of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

This is partly due to the fact that my principles to do not allow me, in all good conscience, to celebrate a free man giving up his freedom in exchange for a lifetime of servitude as the plaything of royalty but mostly to do with the fact that I don't get back to the UK until early on the morning of Wednesday 14th Feb.

Tuesday the 13th was a suggestion, Thursday the 15th of February could also be an option if you want to consider to review your principle in the presence of friends. :lol: . Obviously you would be also back in the UK to make it!

Under those circumstances I would be delighted to accept an invitation to a slightly delayed celebration. The 15th sounds perfect.

Unfortunately I cannot make it, but wish you all some great bottles in good company.

PS. Do you let everyone pass these days? How much more german than Wolfgang can one be?

There is the tiniest of tiny chances that I might be able to attend, though it's not likely right now.
However, even if not present I will most definitely toast the event remotely, and am very happy that Wolfgang will continue to be with us.

Well, I've only seen him wearing a pointed helmet on.. three(?) occasions so far...

p.s. We (Julian) should really spell Wolfgang's name correctly in the thread title and first post, unless he's changing it to a British spelling? ;)

Deary me, I'm really not on the ball. I am unfortunately not able to attend. That is half term week and I am out of the country with the family.

I had thought that the Anglicization plus the fact that Wolfgang was the feature (star) of the tasting was a clever play-I suggest we leave it that way within the title of the thread.

And by the way count me in please.

I thought the name was intentionally misspelled to make it sound more british.
