Hi all,
Catering outline and budget attached
It's down to about 2000, including beer and wine on both nights before dinner.  It would be best to leave some extra, like $250 in case of any problems or last minute things needed.

John and Attila,

In the event that we can't get a very exact headcount, we should
probably go with The Cheesecake Factory on the 6th - but they require
us to be there by 6:15 at the latest (actually 6, but I will try to
persuade them). The drinks reception is supposed to go from 5:45-6:15,
so how do you feel about either moving up the schedule 15 minutes,
shortening the reception by 10 min, or doing away with the drinks
reception on the first day (if this is still possible - not sure if
you have bought everything already)? We don't have to decide until
Monday or Tuesday but just want to see if this scenario is ok for our
schedule. It may be easier just to decide now, though.

we've not bought the drinks yet, so that would work if easiest,  it's already only 45 mins so shorter would be too short I think...  maybe the drinks could run later on the Thursday, until 6.45 and then dinner at 7pm instead?

Sure, let's cut out drinks on Wednesday maybe we need more time for questions to Jon Trowbridge.
