My taste buds will be shot by the time we hit Cotteridge Wines: but Iíll try to be relatively sober on arrival, otherwise Iíll end up buying a bucket load of bottles and not have enough hands or bag space to carry them home!

If youíve never been before I think youíll be impressed: good of them to prepare for us too (plus tasters of course).

Itís local and itís a winner so i donít see why not. In fact, while Iím in the area, I might see if I can bag the entire Aston Manor range of top quality beverages.


I know the Rep for Aston Manor if youíre serious...

Iíll aim to see you and Ruth on the Friday too. But if not, then certainly Saturday. Gurd wants to catch up with you too.

Has anyone tallied the attendees? I have one more person who wants to come (assuming Richy hasnít already booked his (Gurdís) spot. Is there any space left?

After my unforeseen disappointment and not being able to make it that is one space unless its already been taken.

Iíd be curious to know final tallies. Also, how many guys will be traveling from London on the morning? The spreadsheet would suggest five but I donít know if there are guys who just havenít filled in the sheet.

There are 7 folks on the train from London.
Ken, Leighton, Jack, Ian, Fergus +1 and myself.

As to other folks wanting to bring friends - this is not a problem there should be plenty of room.

However the bus has been a bit poorly and is in at the garage at the moment so need to confirm all is well in next few days.

If not I will hire a minivan/coach from somewhere. If this is the case we need to nail down numbers in order to get the best price based on the exact number of seats required.

Yeah, a tasting of about 20 beers on the train on the way up should set us up nicely for the day. Iíll be at Euston reasonably early as I donít want to risk any delays on the way up from Kent.
