There is NO way I would want to be out in anything on the water in this hurricane!
Have already seen a partial crane collapse on the 57th floor of a high rise building. Trees down in Central Park and a 14ft storm surge due in the next few hours could put significant areas under water, including two of the major airports

Extras noted.

I will be calling the Folly tomorrow to open 'negotiations'.

Options may be ;

- Pick from a set xmas menu - each phone to pay deposit & try and unravel it on the day - if this is the case I will need to know orders and exact numbers and that you have paid ( and how much ) to the Folly . I'll end up in 'proper' management mode - so buggering about last minute wont be tolerated etc etc etc

- Agree to stick the Turkey & pick of the 'normal' menu on the day etc etc - no hassle for me - everyone sorts themselves out .

Of course the weather could be dismal - so if this would put you off going ( either by boat , ferry , car, taxi etc - best back out now ?)

As always I've unleashed a monster - but I'm happy to get a hold of it .....

Thoughts / comments, feelings welcome - but in true RIBnet style dont expact them to be listened to

I would be happy to choose from the normal menu. That would be easier for everyone and help avoid the Xmas fare overload to follow.

I may have a couple of + 1s (yes, may not be travelling solo) will let you know ASAP.

Udate

Been speaking with the Folly . They would prefer if we ordered form the xmas menu ( attached & link to earlier in the thread) as it allows them to plan better and deliver a better service on the day. We shoudl be aiming to be sat down at 12.30 ( ish) - and of course it gets dark early so if going by boat expect to get back in the dark if your going far - staying longer !

I think rough numbers are 34 ish .

I will be paying a deposit to the Folly myself tomorrow to secure this for all .....so if anyone is half commited /unsure please let me know urgently. This will mean people will just need to pay thier own bill in full on the day ( hopefully)

I would ask/ beg that everyone have a look and PM/ phone / email me choices ASAP - by THURSDAY 8th November LATEST . I'll be running a spreadsheet to keep track which I'll send round to make sure its all 100% clear and chasing for choices .

Sorry for the 'planning' - can anyone tell I used to project manage ?

SHOUT if not clear ...

Pete
