I'm starting to think there's enough of us adding each other that the person doing the seating arrangements has no choice but to band us all together. If not then

:lol: and that's even before they dole out the bread rolls :P

Seriously - they do say that there has to be mutual cross nomination of table sharing and they do also have an 'I don't want to share with so and so' option as well. I guess they've had mischievous shenanigans with putting people together who don't want to be before now and this is to stop it happening...? :shock:

:banana-tux: Just added you Mad :D

Tino - there's 7 of us in all now so that's all good ;)

I don't know how big a table they can do - last year we think there was around 8-10, but if anyone else wants in I'm sure they can do something for us :P

Oh - and has anyone been and clicked the 'I want to be the Head of an Order' button yet? :lol: Let me make this very clear - I'm NOT going to click it... :shifty:

No, although I was VERY tempted as there was a warning sign telling me not to press it and I'm curious what it does :lol:

There was an option apply to be a Head of An Order when we first signed up for Gala Dinner, it implied that you would have to do something unspecified (possibly a small speech) at the dinner itself.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Done :D

I'll be wearing a corset for the occasion, I think (holds in my pudding tummy). I'll get the right size though, so there'll be no need for warm spoons.
