Thank you for the help, Wolfgang and Julian, I have ordered the glasses, so no one has to bring glasses and I will collect 90 GBP for the evening.

Axel,

thanks for the decision that we have the glasses hired for the evening which will amount to 21£ per head. Am I reading your post right that you collect ~ 6.5£ per person for the evening or 90£ per person?

Please clarify and provide full break down of expected cost.

regards

Dear all,

due to the Riedel glass hiring costs are now 90 GBP per head, including everything (also inviting our industry guest).

Please do bring the bottle decanted along or bring everything to decant this to the RAF Club.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Much looking forward to seeing you all there.

@Julian - placemats checked and all look correct.
Could I request two swaps of position: S63 <-> Fs63 and T63<->F63 as this would make a better "Avery corner".

They have already been delivered to The RAF Club, so no, too late.

Are jeans allowed with a jacket and tie? I’m fairly certain what the answer will be but thought I’d ask anyway!

When I was at RAF Cottesmore for the first time with my wife in the early 90s, a Benny Hill-type guy went into the officer's mess just before my wife and me. Dress code was regular uniform or flight suit, women accordingly. The entry control guy let the gentlemen in front of us pass although I was about to give him a pound for some food as his jacket looked like pre WWII.

My wife who was wearing very stylish wild-leather trousers was refused due to the fact that they "appear to be jeans-alike", which made us smile a bit about the enforcement of the dress code.

Bottom line: since it is a private function, jeans, shirt and jacket are fine, no tie necessary. I will be wearing those without a tie, too. The bar is also open for this dress code.

Much looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.

I am afraid due to work issues I may not be able to make tonight. With apologies.
I have my bottle decanted at office on london wall, is anyone in the area who could pick it up. Otherwise I will try and drop off later in the night but I am unlikely to be able to stay.
Axel I will pay the full amount to you
Sorry for the late notice
