Perhaps the organiser could choose a date? (I’m available that day, by the way.)

I would be interested to attend if space permits. I can offer Warre, Taylor, Smith Woodhouse, Sandeman, Martinez (alas only a single bottle of each- restocking is called for) but am equally happy to go shopping if needed.

Would love to attend please but will have to adopt I'm afraid. Many thanks.

I suppose, given the interest in the thread, I should start to do a bit more organising — unless one of the 1970 Birthday Team want to take over?
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927

I feel like I should take a lead on this given my specific interest in 1970 and the fact it is a significant year for me too!

I would be interested pending a date I can make, but would need to adopt as well. If I can manage both of those things then I'd definitely be interested!
