Drinks with lunch. Please read....... 
I have to point out that on the last ride I had a problem when it came to paying the lunch bill. You will see on the invitations that lunches normally include ONE drink per person. Although this does not apply to everyone present many of you appeared to have had more than the one in included and I wrongly assumed that you would be paying separately for these drinks  as is the usual arrangement. It was a hot day and understandably people need to drink more. Consequently I was presented with a bill substantially  higher than expected.
After some embarrassing negotiation with 
the restaurant owner I handed over 60 euros above that expected. 
I am not asking you to repay this money but to please bear this in mind at future lunches and  pay for any extra drinks at bar or to the waiting staff..
