Hi
Please can I send my port to one of you folks to bring in?
I am flying back from Oporto on Thurs 9th and will not have time to pick it up - I hope to be at B&F around 6:30.
Much appreciated. T

I have just checked with the Boot and Flogger and can confirm that they have both my bottles (T83 and W83) in the cage, which is a relief as I was starting to worry they had gone AWOL. If any help is required earlier on the day if the tasting for decanting and setting up, I am available if/whenever required.

Good stuff! I've emailed the B&F to confirm that all the expected bottles are present but not had a reply yet.

Many thanks for the offer to help with setup, that would be much appreciated. I'm planning to get there for 3.30 or 4 on the day.

The food order has been updated. Made a guess for Christopher and have sought confirmation by email. Only JMR outstanding - Julian have you requested? Thanks.

Could someone take a look and check the food order? Ta.

F80 dropped off at the B&F last night (the T80 and Phil's F83 having been similarly deposited at the 77 tasting).

Mike: please check the placemats. Correct people? Bottles credited to the correct people? Neck tags and decanter labels? Anything else?

Thanks Julian - bottles attributed correctly. Could be a cache issue, but the version I am seeing doesn't have Derek, Dia or Phil.

OK, final two bottles delivered to the B&F and a full bottle audit completed - everything is now there bar the F85 which Derek is bringing.
