Event Location: Pointers

Event Hours: 18:00 to 02:00

For the participation fee you will receive:

* 15 glasses of either white or red wine (1/8th)
* A light meal of cheeses, bread and fruit
* Unlimited soda water
* Detailed expert information about each of the wines.
* A small keepsake to remember the evening


In addition, all participants who successfully complete the event will receive:

* A plaque on the Pointers "Wall of Fame"


As a bonus, all Vienna Access Card Members will receive:

* 20 points on the "Stairway to Heaven." Thats 5 bonus points!


If you would like to take part in this event please sign up by Monday, 26 February as space is limited and indicate in the thread below whether you will be drinking red or white wine or a combination. Pointers also kindly requests that participants arrive on time as the event will start promptly at 18:00.

I look forward to seeing you there!

the registration system has been added. if you would like to take part please sign up. Also, it would be useful to know if you will be drinking red or white wine (or some of both).

I will be drinking some of both depending on the region.

Ofcourse I will be there, wouldn't miss this!
Ok, it's a doppler, but divided over so many hours I am hopeful I can make it.

I was thinking cheese fondue beforehand to line my stomach. That usually does the trick

Sorry, I meant to bump this up earlier today--but then I got swamped with work and I have only now had a chance to take a breath and gather my thoughts. Because of this, I am extending the registration deadline by one more day.

There are actually quite a few non-forum people joining I believe, so we might have the max of 12 (I think that's what Greg and Mark mentioned) soon or already.

So, wine is definitely not my drink of choice to get drunk on! Was anyone else struggling as much as I was? On the other hand, I have no hangover!

It was a lot of fun, thanks Mark you really made an effort.

For some reason I have 159 pics of the evening. Who got into a picture taking frenzy? It wasn't me, as I am on a lot of those, showing my drunken state. :oops:

I felt fine this morning and carried on boozing for a few more points for good measure last night before falling into a cab at an unearthly hour of the night...

I see I danced on a table. I cannot remember at all! I know I said in the beginning of the evening that I was definitely not going to dance on any tables. Oh dear

I have uploaded some of the pics, but most of them are just too... drunk to show online :mrgreen:

There will be more of them on the Pointers website as well I think

It was a very fun evening--at least up the point that I can remember (wine#12). This morning was horrible though--alcohol poisoning is not fun and I am only now just starting to feel normal. Thanks for the pics Sunshine, they helped to fill some of the gaps.

I'll add my pics too (only a small selection!). I enjoyed it more than I expected - fortunately I was lucky on my picks of white and red (the Italian white and the Portuguese white were one's I was glad to sidestep!) After such an alcohol overdose - but no hangover - I'm off the sauce though for a while! Thanks again to Pointers for organising it!

I added the few photos I thought might add something to the collection - otherwise my pictures - apart from the prevalence of Trouser Snake are fairly similar to those posted.
