TPF 2013 Offline Summary

Post by AHB » 00:59 Sun 06 Jan 2013

I thought that it might be of use to have a summary or index to past offlines and possible future offlines being organised through or attended by posters on TPF. With a single summary list it should be easier for people to see quickly whether there is an offline coming up that they would like to attend.

All offlines on the list are set out with the following information:
Date (Location) Theme (Comment)
Thu 3rd Jan (London) A Verizontal of Cockburn 1955
Thu 17th Jan (London) Six Dow Magnums
Fri 18th Jan (Portugal) JDAW Goes to Portugal
Sat 2nd Feb (Leverkusen) The World of Port Tastes 20 Different 1963 Vintage and Colheita Ports
Wed 6th Feb (London) Some Churchill and Some Dow
Fri 15th Feb (London) The Doty Challenge Cup
Wed 20th Feb (London) The New Douro Tasting
Wed 20th and Sun 24th Feb (London) 1977 from Tappit Hen
Tue 26th Feb (London) Ronnie Roots Comes to London
Wed 6th Mar (London) A Blind Tasting at Short Notice
Sat 9th Mar (New York) An American Crossword Puzzle Tournament Port Tasting
Fri 22nd Mar (London) A Taylor Vertical
Tue 2nd Apr (London) 1983 / 1985 Double Horizontal
Wed 17th Apr (London) Oscar Quevedo Comes to London
Tue 23rd Apr (London) The "Dirty Dozen"

Wed 25th Sep (London) A Magnum of Graham 1970, with Friends
Wed 2nd Oct (London) The Bunghole, Blind(ish)
Tue 8th Oct (London) Andy Velebil visits London - 1970 and Some Others
Fri 11th and Sat 12th Oct (Wokingham) The 1963 Quinquagenary
Thu 31st Oct (London) All Hallow's Eve - Blind in the Bunghole

Thu 19th Dec (Wenden's Ambo) The 2013 Christmas Offline
Sat 28th Dec (Wokingham) Dinner at Milton's


And useful links to offline summaries for 2016, 2015, 2014, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009 and 2008 and by shipper.

And some ideas that have not yet had dates set:

March 2014 (New York) A Fonseca Vertical
TBA (Leverkusen) Messias Ports - colheita vs vintage

Would you mind adding Wed 27th Nov, since it's been tentatively agreed and I am definitely intending to make up for my recent absences?

The list has been updated and is in final draft format for 2013. If any links are found to be broken then please let me know.

I couldn't find a review thread for 27th Nov (which I believe was the night before the Port Walk) but I do recall having missed an offline that night. If someone can point me to the right place I will add this to the list.

Now to start work on 2014...

Very embarrasing - I was there! Thanks for the link. Don't really know how I missed it, but I did.

It was a very pleasant couple of evenings. Easy to forget the events that occurred at the beginning once you've made it to the end!
