Doing a bump to let Berserkers know the waitlist is open. Furthermore, spots always open up for various reasons. Just ask Doug.

Quick update


We have had 2 dropouts so far. Still waiting for Brent to tell us if he's coming.

Also have 7 who have yet to confirm.

Still hope for the rest of the waitlist.

Update for those on the waitlist.

Still waiting on one attendee to confirm. One other just welcomed a new member to the family so could be a last minute drop out.

If you're on the waitlist and can join with last minute notice please let me know.

My wife (Gail Cromer) and I can join last minute, because we'll be in the neighborhood anyway. We just need a chance to pick up our contribution bottles from storage, depending on which ones you want us to bring.

Thanks for organizing!

I'm getting excited for this. Not only is the vintage my daughter's birth year but it's one of my favorite vintages in Oregon. I expect to see the best wines here will have great tension, good fruit and will be starting to develop some tertiary flavors.

We might be early on a few wines that could improve but I bet this is the right time to be checking in. I've been drinking up everything else though and have largely held on to my 11s so I don't have much grounds to make those guesses.

As always, the discussion is just as much fun as the wines. Looking forward to seeing you all.

PS. anyone driving from NE? Durstin, Vincent, Andrew? I can't drive right now and would love to hitch a ride.

+1 on both of those. Thomas generously offered to host again as well; apparently they are normally set up for IPNC events anyway so it's relatively easy to reconfigure.

Thank you, everyone, for another fantastic event.

I can tell everyone now the theme of next year's event will be 2007! Going back to the vintage that kicked off the series.
