Pre-Christmas Virtual Get Together - 15 Dec

Post by rich_n » 12:34 Thu 26 Nov 2020

Morning all, I was wondering if there was an appetite to get together on Zoom in the run up to Christmas for an informal gathering? I would think maybe the 15th Dec could work, but if course I'm open to other dates.

I will be quarantining prior to seeing my parents over Christmas so won't be indulging in any in-person drinks with friends, so a Zoom with the group here would be a delightful break from what I expect to be a rather monotonous couple of weeks.

I'd be keen Rich. An excuse to open something is always welcome.

Yes please... most dates would probably work for me, so I look forward to the ‘farewell to 2020 TPF virtual tasting’!

If there's a tasting in the depths of Dec after Christmas, my father might join as I'll be with them for that period!

I have heard no objections to the 15th so unless there are any in very near future I shall change the date to reflect that.

Sounds fun. I might try and find some thing a little special - unless you have a specific theme in mind?

It will depend on my work schedule that week (things get busy in the lead-up to Christmas), but I would like to join you if my schedule works out!

I'm hoping to convince Mike or Alex to run the Zoom since I don't have a Pro account... Gents, are either of you willing?

Thanks Alex! I guess we'll have to make sure we finish by midnight and your Zoom turns into a pumpkin.

Just a thought. Would it be a good idea for us all to have a meal; say a lump of steak (horns off, arse wiped). It would make it seem more like a normal get together.

I could cope with that.

Could I also have a cheesy Welsh rarebit with extra cheese?
