It's that time again - FTLOP is another year older and we have more Port to drink!
This year the tasting will be a couple of weeks later than usual due to scheduling conflicts. Saturday, August 10th instead of the last weekend in July. We're also going to do 2 sessions like we did for the 1983 retrospective, so plan for the entire afternoon starting at Noon and ending whenever we finish up around 11:00 pm or Midnight. (With a break for dinner around 5:00, of course.) The location is TBD, but I'm going to try to get the Issaquah Holiday Inn as usual.
The theme is simply "bring something great to share" and as a guideline that means 1970 or older for VP, or 1960 or older for Colheita. Please email me or Roy about the bottle you plan to bring so that we can ensure there's no duplication. We'll also try to keep things balanced in terms of VP/Colheita and also "epic-ness" of selection.
We also ask that anyone coming from out of town please ship your bottle to one of us at least 2-3 weeks in advance. That will give your bottle the best possible chance to avoid suffering from travel sickness.
Stewart, Andy, and David - your spots are reserved, but if you can't make it this year let me know and I'll free up your spot for someone else.
