Dear All,
I regret to inform everyone that I have received back word from Geoff Cooke who is now unable to attend our dinner. Apparently his wife has booked them on a surprise Carribean cruise. He had not mentioned to her about the dinner engagement.

Any suggestions for a speaker gratefully received.

Kind regards David
