The placemats for Tuesday 23rd April (Dirty Dozen and Friends) aren’t quite done awaiting information about Axel’s +1. But when they are, please could somebody print. The first few pages are on A3.

Indeed, the placemats for Wednesday 24th April (2007 LBVs) will also need printing, and it would be inconvenient to carry them around the BFT. Perhaps the same person could print, and bring them to The Bung Hole on Tuesday 23rd. Please? (My 2007 LBVs will be brought to TBH on Tue 23rd: same could happen to the placemats.)

Thank you. I can live with the small error if you can.

Updated draft of the placemats.
  • AP’s +1   WG.
  • Believed to be finished: perhaps somebody knowledgeable and competent could check.

DRT wrote:the Dirty Dozen will comprise eight of the twelve bottles purchased by Tom some time ago on behalf of a subset of the team plus four of the bottles that were given to me by a kind benefactor a few weeks ago. Tom is to keep the remaining four bottles from the Dirty Dozen and therefore deduct a fair cost of those four from the cost of the original purchase. The remaining cost will be split equally between the attendees of this tasting, excluding the industry guests who are brining additional Port. The four that I am bringing are free.
The price of the wines for this tasting is now confirmed to be £30 per person plus the cost of food and tip. The twelve who will share that cost will also share the cost of food for our guests, Dirk and Joao. Please bring cash for at least the £30 portion of your contribution as that money needs to go to Tom.

The BBC, in an article entitled [url=http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-22238511]Lufthansa strike sees 'massive' flight cancellations[/url], wrote:German airline Lufthansa has cancelled the majority of its flights scheduled for Monday due to a strike over pay.

The airline said only about 20 of its flights would run as planned on Monday, out of more than 1,700 originally scheduled.
Does this affect the travel plans of any of our friends coming from Germany?

All looks ok, provided that:
- removal of S.E.-d is correct; not mentioned in thread since DRT's last instruction on bringing 4 S.E bottles
- ordering of colums before rows for bottle order as requested by DTR has been lost in latest placemat layout (with 14 instead of 15 bottles)
- AP's +1 is "WG"; WG is used in placemats as per previous JDAW note; initial post needs attendee list update for this
- Bottle labels 1-9 are portrait, while labels 10-14 are landscape; is that intended? (possibly yes, for maximum font size?)
(Also minor note; the leading hooks of the initial J are lost in the column headings on the WOTN/Q: pages)

Email from DRT said that S.E. donated three types of port, not four. Hence ‟S.E.-d.”

Hoping to make this easy before too late.

Not a placemat problem.

Yes, for reason you suggested. Orientation chosen individually, not globally.

Disagree.

True, provided WG is correct; I just noticed the discrepancy while comparing attendee list from initial post with placemats.

Fair enough.

I also noticed that the pre-pour sheets were in reverse order, but assumed this is a non-issue and barely worth mentioning!

That is the default behaviour, as glasses sheets usually start with oldest, but pre-pouring should start with youngest. Controlled by PrePourReverseOrder.

Eight bottles decanted, all positively identified, all in good order and perfectly mature.. 88)

Numbered 1 to 8 randomly, and some double-decanted into different bottles to prevent inspired guessing..
