OK, have arranged a fresh shipment, coming directly from Switzerland.
The Swiss say that this will not be their standard export flavoured brand
but a higher quality type normally only available within Switzerland itself.

Hi Gang! I have been asked to come back while our good Friend John Clark is recuperating, First and foremost Rocky's Is and will always be a tribute to our good friend and a great Guy Rocky McCudd. Rocky was a Fearless, Talented amazing Human Being. He was faced with many of life's obstacles and challenges as we all have I am sure. But the biggest was his health problems. Rocky and I shared many of those Health challenges. Rocky along with my Father spurred me on to overcome many of them. Sadly Rocky passed on as well as some good friends here on the Seti Boards.

I will be back I just keep getting interrupted.

Will one box (or even three boxes) be sufficient for the weekend, surely we will need a couple of CASES at the very least

Logistics is becoming a concern with respect to the confectionery shop. Due
to it's ever growing popularity the store is finding it quite problematic in
handling the number of clientele who frequently visit it. I'm hoping that
committee member Chris may be able to remedy this situation with a possible
future redevelopment of this retail section. Will have to see what he makes
of this whole situation on his next club inspection.

The Lindt & Swiss Toblerone will be on the shelves very shortly now. They
will be on display near where you find the cases of Edelkakaos Der Welt

Hmm,
We really must investigate the expansion plans as well as the re-fit plans.
Storage is at a premium, I've had to double up (or is it treble up??) the South African, Australian and New Zealand wines, and I'm dreading the punch up that's going to cause among the bottles.
We now have 4km of shelves dedicated to bottled African beers alone, and that lot has to be kept at just the right temperature or it can get "quite exciting". Fortunately the conditions are very similar to those required by the Bud and other American "light" beers, but not as cold as the Australian - which live in a "warm freezer".

I am glad to say that the new UK real ale store is working a treat, and we've had no more problems of bursting barrels, which resulted in some nasty injuries to staff involved in the clear up operation (foot long splinters of oak barrel embedded in the oak cellar doors....)

So where do we put the chocolate, its got to be a temperature controlled area, but must not be too cold, and we need of fairly small shelves so we can grab the bars in a hurry (we must no keep the ladies waiting...)

Oh well, back to polishing the nice new glasses and brass pumps ;-)

Whew,
That was a hectic couple of minutes - fourteen Pan Glactic Gargle Blasters ordered by one customer/victim. I did warn him, but he insisted. He only got half way down number three before the floor greeted him in the face. Good news is I'd only made three by then so there was no wastage; bad news is we've got some bad blood stains to get rid of on that nice white maple floor that John so painstakingly had installed as part of the last refit.

The customer is currently being looked after by a number of paramedics, who think he will survive as he had less than three - I'm really glad I'm a slow cocktail shaker.

Hmm,
We really must investigate the expansion plans as well as the re-fit plans.

Phase 1 is now going a-head, Chris finally signed the plans off as Uli
has decided now on how the ladies bath room/restroom is to be laid out.
Phase 1 mainly covers the American quarter since this section fell short of
what was to be expected after last years 4th July celebrations. This quarter
was found to be woefully under-sized for the amount of members present for that
very important occasion.

Chris will be carrying out his usual 6 monthly service inspection shortly and
is keen to look for further improvements in the whole outfit especially where
improvements to building services are concerned. He knows that the confectionery
retail outlet is now under-size and will have made himself aware now of your clear observations too.
I look forwards to seeing his phase 2 expansion plans once
these have been discussed between him and the other committee members.

I forgot to mention earlier-on that Lindt is also sending us, free of charge,
a large box of their new line in chocolate drinks. When they arrive these will
be placed in the Germans lounge (Gesellschaftsraum & Keller). If you wish to
sample one of these then do pop into the Gesellschaftsraum and try one. We chose
to make these drinks available only in the Gesellachaftsraum since, being the
biggest consumers in the world of hot chocolate drinks, the Germans would
naturally wish to handle this drink from their quarter. Being conasaurs on all
things pertaining to chocolate beverages we await their report on whether we
go ahead and stock this product. Gesellschaftsraum & Keller does seem to be
a rather long title for the German quarter but it will be down to Mike to
decide if he wishes to give his quarter a different title or not. I like it
for it sounds typically German and the name is nice and long.

I'll have four please:
One with custard
One with clotted cream
One with ice cream
and the last one I'll decide which of the above three worked best...

Oh, yes, ice cream reminds me -
Did the Italians get their ice cream maker working to their satisfaction after it got polluted with some awful "just add water" rubbish the other week?
