Does that help me to understand whether I should bring something?

Is that for BMHR and DJ to drink alone?

I need to make the placemats for this. Which will require my re-reading the whole thread. Sigh.

I have no idea how many people will reach TBH but I intend to be one of them and will have a mag of emergency VP waiting when I get there. All who make it there are welcome to share in my emergency. If they choose to bring something with them that is for them to decide.

Thank you, that helps.

I have supplied JDAW with 750ml of What. We are two people (+RAB) but we went into conclave and decided that this was sufficient.

So far I believe we have DRT, AHB, JDAW, PW, DJ, RB attending TBH afterwards, with RAYC and WS busy elsewhere, CMAG attending BBR but unknown regarding afterwards, and THRA still looking for a ticket if anyone has a spare.

We have a magnum from DRT, a standard bottle from DJ, and I intend to bring 'something'; that should already provide an average of a half-bottle per person for 8 people. With the option for post-port beer also, this may be enough?

There is a suspicion that JDAW also intends to bring a Superlarge What (at least this was intimated earlier in the thread). I would agree with Phil and follow up, saying that I'm not sure this is necessary. A Normal or even Large What would be adequate. A Superlarge might leave us with an inelegant amount to consume in a short space of time.

Should we pre-order six emergency steak burgers, the cooking of which could be initiated by a phone call from a taxi?

Good idea, yes. But might THRA be joining us now? Might the order be 7?

The magnum of what has been double decanted and re-corked for transportation to London.

Colour = looks yummy.
Nose = smells yummy.
Taste = yummy.

Are we to be blind?

Steak burgers sounds like a good plan.

"Something" double decanted. Crystal clear, intriguing colour and smell.

I have managed to grab a ticket from Rob so can attend TBH if there is space...as it was very short notice I only have some brown sticky stuff...assume that would be acceptable.
