Great news - there will be at least one prize which only looks a little shoddy!
Also, please get your votes in. You don't have to be there to vote.

For those planning on attending, please announce what you will be bringing. I will bring a Smith Woodhouse 70.

I will give some thought about what to bring.
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.

Reluctantly it looks like I need to bow out of this auspicious occasion. It was 50/50 but is now complicated by the landslide on the tracks in Basingstoke meaning no direct trains from Weymouth to London and a significant reduction in services. I hope the spot gets filled but if there is still space nearer the time and logistics prove possible I would happily jump back in.

Zak x do you want me to vote regardless of attendance?

No worries Simon. By the looks of it, there will likely be free spots remaining for a change of circumstance.
Please vote regardless of attendance. Same goes for all people viewing this.

Just realised I’m not listed as an “online attendee”. Is it ok for me to attend virtually?

I would also like to attend virtually and I'll be bringing, virtually, the best bottle of Port I can find :D

I forgot about the online aspect. I will try broadcast the awards bit but believe it will be troublesome for engagement for the entire evening.

Again, please vote if you haven't. https://forms.gle/z1ExxDnyBsQ6t52t7

Zak - I can bring my laptop and set up a teams call. If someone else can also bring a laptop or tablet we can set up one to one calls on each machine so Mike and Justin can each have their own virtual “seats” at the table.

Sure, let's try that. I was also considering whether we should just stream to YouTube given back and forth between a large in person group and those online will be tricky. Either way, I'll bring my laptop.

Thank us when it works...

You'll all be pleased to know that the prizes are ready; some being of far better quality than the others. Blame the manufacturer.

Also, please note that voting closes in one week so do get your votes in, even if you're not attending.

I will bring a '60 Burmester in the hope that it will be new to some of those present. If another laptop is required, please let me know; I shall have one to hand in London.

If you would, placemats are greatly appreciated.
We are sighted.
