Bah, that's the BA password.

Looking forward to meeting everyone. Is there a final list of those attending?

Not yet, I think right now, based on who's co formed the last few days we're looking at 5-10 people

Perhaps not so unreliable as I thought, so unfortunately CPT is off for me. Hopefully next time.

Ok everyone, see you at 17:30 at Bascule at the Cape Grace, Waterfront.

I'll be there between 17:00 and 17:30 wearing a grey shirt and with a box of Ferrero Rocher on the table. I'll try let the staff know to direct anyone asking for "Tim Clark" or the "Emirates group" to my table, if anyone else is there earlier, please keep a lookout for me, else we spend the evening sitting at opposite sides of the bar

Current confirmed attendance:

skywardhunter
gillyd22
thijsseh
whatsthepoint
Seaforth

Tentative:
RichardAtCT ? (Had confirmed but not posted since we announced the venue)
Bizfish (Had posted early on but not confirmed after we decided the date, hope you make it!)
Ahmed777 (Said he'll be around but not confirmed recently, too busy battling lounge dragons for access?)
Flame3601 (Put the mother to bed and join us!)

Is that a valid excuse? Being in the Northern suburbs?
I plan to take an Uber from Blouberg. Weather looks miserable....

Absolute howler today, just realised I've got washing outside... Guess it'll get wet.

I'm driving through from work on Montague Gardens. Come on pdh..

Only a grey shirt? Did not realise it was that sort of party....
I'll probably wear blue trousers. Light brown pullover. Probably an old rain jacket, looking at the weather.
I'm old (so I wear grey hair).

Haha I assume I'll be seated so my jeans won't be easily visible

Ok I'm here when you enter Bascule down and left around to the back section, first table with a couch on the right, with the Ferrero Rochers
