I have Dow, Gould Campbell (in bond), Graham, Croft Roeda, Taylor and Warre.

I'd quite like an excuse to get the Roeda out of storage...

Each of the below have proffered bottles already in their possession. I would like to enable them to drink some of their 1980s, rather than holding them for a tasting nine months away for which proffered bottles may or may not be required. Accordingly, I set out a provisional requests list below. To those of you who have proffered bottles, the first-named bottles would ideally be provided by you with any other mentioned below proffered for adoption. As others check what they have the need for some of these adoption bottles will fall away.

@ Doggett - please could you bring the Dow
@ idj123 - provisionally, please could you bring the Graham, together with the Warre for adoption by nac
@ flash_uk - provisionally, please could you bring the Gould Campbell
@ AHB - happy to provide you with an excuse; provisionally, please could you bring the Croft Roeda, together with Taylor for adoption by hadge
@ forest26 - provisionally, please could you bring the Barros, together with Burmester, Kopke, Fonseca for adoption
@ CPR1 - provisionally, please could you bring the Sandeman, together with the Niepoort for adoption
@ DaveRL - provisionally, please can you bring the Offley Boa Vista, together with the Smith Woodhouse for adoption by akzy
@ M.Charlton - please could you bring the Burmester.
@ self - bringing Noval Nacional, together with Royal Oporto for adoption (the latter only possibly, if result of check reveals it as a VP)

Unfortunately I don't own any 1980. Depending on George's preference for determining the lineup early, I can adopt from someone else or set out on purchasing from the shopping list.

I am more or less agnostic on adoption vs shopping list. Given the number of adoptions possible, I am slightly in favour of attendees being adopters at this point, assuming none of the adoptees get work-crunched nearer the time and have to drop out.

Could I nominally be the Warre adopter? Likely to be buying some shortly, and if so will provide directly. If not, will still adopt...

@ nac, idj123, may (for the moment) I propose you as suitable adoptive partners. Nominal Warre pairing ensues.

The SW was drinking very nicely last time I had it. That would be my preference.

Very happy to adopt or if there is a particular port missing from the line up you want I can have a look for it. But sure budget runs to Nacional at current prices I am afraid .

I can bring a bottle of Burmester. Else, please could I be listed as an adopter.

Have just acquired a couple of bottles of QH80, so can supply one of these if CMAG hasn't already found one.
