Yes please. And if Justin’s free, why don’t we use his suggested theme of “open a leaker”?

I like the “leaker” idea. Yes please. Might be a little late ‘arriving’ as son #1 has to be collected from rugby around the same time and they always finish late!

Folks, I'm likely to be quite late joining so I'll make sure the Zoom gets opened and I'll join as soon as I can.

Alex, the invite I have has a 6pm start, when are we actually intending to kick off? I’m happy to try and join early but will more likely be around 7pm.

A number of people have received an invite which purports to be from me, but if you read the small print at the foot of the invite you can see it comes from Deloittes. That's Mike, not me. I haven't sent an invite.

Mike - I haven't received an invite either. Could you send one out please?

Invite on way. Does anyone have a clue who sent the invite for 6pm? It is a forward of the invite for our previous virtual tasting, with the date changed.

Not me Guv.

Victim for this evening now selected. Have gone slightly avant garde in celebration of glorious weather.

I will have a glass of Warre 1994 in one hand and a glass of Niepoort Crusted (bottled 2014) in the other. Neither was a leaker, I haven't had the opportunity to scan the country cellar for candidates. I am looking forward to both wines but, much more than that, to seeing your friendly faces.
