We are not a secret society.
Code=a system of words, letters, figures, or symbols used to represent others, especially for the purposes of secrecy.


#222

That’s only definition 1 in the dictionary!

Computing
program instructions.

a systematic collection of laws or statutes.

Middle English: via Old French from Latin codex , codic- (see codex). The term originally denoted a systematic collection of statutes made by Garynian or another of the later Roman emperors; compare with code (sense 3 of the noun) (mid 18th century), the earliest modern sense.


#223

So Gary IS code after all…! I knew it!!:smile:


#224

I for one am not on tenterhooks.

I know for certain I am not going to win a golden bottle.

That’s because I have not ordered any wine during this promotion. My wine storage has no space for more wine, I have nowhere to put any more. I must reduce stocks…

And yet…

I recall I am due to give a tasting in May for which I need to buy wine. When does the Golden Bottle promo end???


#225

Well. I’m not Gary either…


#226

You have to have delivery between 1st and 29th March if that helps! All the T&Cs are here:

Hope this helps! :slight_smile:


#227

Is the bottle ‘awarded’ on order date or on packing for delivery date? I have an order that I have delayed delivery on but it is still in the window.


#228

Mike, the T & C’s say " If you place an order for delivery in England, Wales and Scotland or a pre-order for Showroom collection between 1st and 29th March 2019 you will be automatically entered into the prize draws." I read this as meaning the day it is to be delivered or collected. Could be wrong though.


#229

Turns out I’m not Gary either… I really thought I might be!


#230

I may be many things, but Gary I ain’t :sob:


#231

This is like a game of dominoes …! Who’s next to fail to get the golden bottle :shushing_face:!


#232

Mine’s due on the 28th… let’s hope it can be re-named ‘Gary’s birthday’ :star_struck:


#233

Well, picked up some wine from Stevenage today. Just got home a little while ago and opened the box to check for my golden bottle. I couldn’t believe it - the empty slots were just empty slots!


#234

There’s ANOTHER winner! He’s called Esmond! Do we have an Esmond on here people??


#235

Bet his middle name’s Gary.


#236

It’s not actually. I’ve met him! His middle names are Barry, Harry and Larry.
Surname’s Gary.


#237

Wasn’t me today, Charlie Bucket I ain’t


#238

I vote a pay rise for TWS person who decided to wrap ‘the golden bottle’ like a camp easter egg.


#239

Wasn’t me either. Was really hoping for a glimpse of golden ribbon when I opened up my case but nothing to be seen apart form the space reserved for my potential goodie.

Despite the mantra uttered under my breath en route to the showroom. Today I’m Gary, today I’m Gary… ( repeat ad infinitum ).
