I know a gopher who was maskerading as Hilta Goatfounder was using a shoulder height (at least) staff last time at Birmingham - 'cos she let me have a stroke as it was a lovely piece of apple wood. It did have a more 'Gandalf' type knob rather than the pokey or thumping kind. :)

Still best to check it in with Ops anyway, just so they know you're using it for more than cosmetic purposes - I may have to pop Sadie's parrot-headed brolly past them as well as it has a lovely pointy bit... :shifty:

How tall are you, Tino? Sjoerd may as well make you a pair of stilts to smuggle you in to the dinner, too! :evil: :evil: ;)

Got home from work this morning and checked my e-mails. I've got a place to the dinner :D :dance: :D :dance:

Think it's too late to be able to sit with anyone on here though as I would've had to be nominated by you also :think:

It might be possible to ask to add people to the table by email Tino (you can amend existing orders for the hotel booking for instance).

I just sent off to ask if it can be done - will report back soon ;)

'Kay - you can change your dinner booking. :D

Got this answer come back

Jan,

Thanks for your enquiry.

You can edit your booking to include A N Other by navigating to Sign up >
Orders >View all your orders. On here you should see your Banquet booking
and make any amendments you need. You can do this if you change your mind on
menu choice, too.

If for any reason you cannot enter additional names, please ask your fellows
to include a combination of diners. It might also be useful to put the
information into the free-form dietary requirements box (as long as this is
currently empty).

Regards,
- The Banquet Team


So Tino - what's your membership number? I just looked on the website and you can edit the order yourself but I think they want everyone to agree to the seating arrangements ;)

Here's the list of the forum table thus far -
Jan van Quirm A177
Dotsie A196
Jean Mead A211
Sjoerd3000 A333

Anybody else want to sit with us - just post in here and we'll add you :ugeek:

Just to be safe I added a note to dietary notes window thusly - TwoShotTino A306 and Penfold A213 added to seating plan 26th April so it's clear you were added ;)

OK - if you managed to edit your badge name then this shouldn't be too difficult Madam Meer ;)

I'll be around tomorrow PM and at the weekend if you want to give me a nudge on IM and I'll talk you through it (not difficult to do :P )
