Hi everybody Big Smile

Liviu, his wife and I will have dinner together on Friday night (6th October), in a nice place on the lake, not far from Riva.

Who would like to join us?

Please let me know within tomorrow as I need to try and reserve a table! (A table for three is already reserved but we could need a larger one) Big Smile

I will finalise it in the next couple of days. I can be a little flexible around dates/times even airports if I have to. But thank you anyway.

There is no girl to change her mind.

But doesn't mean she won't Wink

If I'm there in time that would be great. I will let you know as soon as booking is finalised. If I can't be accommodated no problem.

Ok, I changed the reservation to a table of 6 people. Smile

And that restaurant is now fully booked.

Duels, should you arrive on Friday to Riva, please let me know anyway and we will maybe meet for a drink before dinner and I will also tell the restaurant to let me know if someone cancels his reservation... in that case, maybe we can have a 4 people table and a 3 people table. Ok? So, we will do our best!

For those who booked at Luise, can you please tell me, even in private, under what name you reserved the room?

Thanks.

I mean the others... I know you are arriving at Linate, Christophe, aren't you? Smile

Hi Everyone

I have some disappointing news.  As I mentioned to Paolo privately a few weeks ago I have ruptured a disc in my spine and trapped a nerve.  This has made it virtually impossible for me to sit for long periods and therefore to travel long distances over the last month or so.  Things have been improving slowly but steadily with treatment (and a few beers), and I was hoping to still be able to join you all this weekend.  This was only going to be possible by flying from my nearest airport - Manchester, as it is 40 minutes away.

However, the airline I was flying with, Monarch Airlines, have today gone bankrupt!  Can you believe it?

Realistically any alternative flights wont work as they would be from an airport at least 4/5 hours drive from home which I'm simply not up to with my dodgy back.

I am truly gutted to be missing the weekend with you all.  I hope you all have a wonderful time and most importantly enjoy you beers.

Massive respect to Paolo for organising this.

I do really hope you're going to get well quickly, and who knows, maybe you'll organise the next beer party near you Smile

Hi Paolo

Since the forum was moved to another server, the app does not work anymore. It's a known problem.

Hi folks

Thank you for your good wishes Paolo, Peter and CB.  It is so frustrating that I can't be with you this weekend. 

I'm sure you will all have a wonderful time. Please do post pictures as I will be with you in spirit and will of course have a beer or two ......

Cheers!

For Duels whom we are missing (damn Monarch airline!)

I have some photos of elephants arriving in Verona, being collected by Christophe (1:30), being driven by Pablo, having a beer for Duels, and eventually (4:30) arriving at Hotel Luise !

However the BeoWorld App still seems broken wrt pictures, so I will post once I have cracked open my MacBook
