I would like to try and make this but won't know until I get my October trip planned. Could I please be added to the "Maybe" list?

As I will be out of the country for the week prior to the tasting, would some kind soul perhaps be prepared to take charge of the food order for me for this tasting? (as I may be out of email/net contact at the crucial time for submitting the order).

Out of interest, does anybody know who was the 69th producer registered with the IVDP?

Apologies but I will have to withdraw from this tasting.

Happy 50th Birthday to Phil when it comes and I hope you all enjoy the guessing.

Can I swap to a fillet steak black and blue, with chips and green beans. Thank you.

Can I please abstain from food on this tasting. Unfortunately to be able to make the tasting I need to catch the train up from Weymouth in the afternoon and then travel back the same evening as I have a lot of bookings for breakfast the next day. My last train is 9pm from Waterloo so I will be leaving a before the end. Apologies for the shorter attendance and I am looking forward to a fine celebration and interesting juice.

Ps. I believe I may currently be down in the food order with the default for SCP rather than SCD.

Phil - it's short notice, but could I bring a guest please? We'll order their food on the night. His initials are PR and he's right handed.

I can also print the placemats on Tuesday morning and expect to have them at the B&F about 6pm.

Thanks Derek - a shame you will not be able to join us.

Thank you for handling the food order in my absence, and sorting the placemats. One query on placemats: we clearly don't need to guess what the TV69 is so it makes sense that that row is all Xs, but you also have a partial vertical column of Xs as well, as if you (JDAW) are not guessing most of the ports, that I suspect is an error?

There are no known duplications. But I cannot guess.

I’ll drop the placemats off around 4pm and then have to go for a meeting. I’ll be back at the B&F about 6pm.
