One can forgive the organisers if
they sometimes fail to provide a programme which is first-class, and which holds the attention of every onlooker all the time—in these days of ennui that must have a difficult job. But what I find so irksome is the catering arrangements, which I consider (to put it very mildly) very poor indeed. At any of the big meetings when the attendance is large, the service in the restaurant is distressing and the charges exhorbitant.
