Dear John, just a wee note to say thank you for a fantastic weekend. I think we all appreciated the work, effort and worry that went into the organisation but I think you can look upon it as a great success. I certainly enjoyed the food (and wine) and the hotel was first class, at least our room was. The various trips were well guided and enough information for me to take in.

Once again thank you for everything and if you consider another one (especially WW2 trenches) count me in, it was a pleasure meeting you and the rest of the party. I know I speak for my brother John as well. Many thanks, Doug
