Sorry guys. I cannot make it on the given date.

Can I ask to move this to the day prior to the BFT and change the subject on this. Would bring RP then and have Niepoort to adopt.

Best

The day prior to the BFT would be a big ask of the man organising that event.

This is an important theme. Whatever the conclusion, retests will be necessary.

Anyway, please suggest some other dates on which the team can then opine.

Thank you. I will not be available for a few days before 9th May and likely also not the evening of 9th May.

Understood, Alex.

Then you guys may leave this on 10 April. I would need another week to shift some appointments.

Splendid.

Don't get know who is adopting what, so can the Ni|RP decision wait?

Just to throw a curve ball and probably spout heresy... but I have a 1963 Cavendish I could add to the ‘63 party instead of adopting if people were interested.

It would be interesting to try the Cavendish, but I'd prioritise other ports first - particularly the NN if the organiser were to change his (clearly wrong) decision on its inclusion ;)

If for any reason it became a choice between Ni and RP (assuming the preferred option of both being unavailable) then I would plead for the Niepoort, as I don't believe I have ever had it (though I haven't checked, and could be doing a Derek).

If you wish to donate it as a extra, well, can’t refuse. But the experiment relates to real Ports.

I am now available. I only have Croft. Does Mike have an alternative not already declared?

I need to make the decision on whether I could partake in the NN based on finances. What would the cost be per person?

I would be very keen to taste the NN63 if this works for the majority

At approx £100 I am in for the NN please as the opportunity will not present itself very often, and I can’t pass it up... but will be happy with the decision either way.
