Dinner Reservation and Cancellation Policy

As of January 2023, the Whiff of Grape Club is compelled, by our new contract with our host clubs, to implement the following revised Dinner Reservation and Cancellation Policy:

The Whiff must commit to a firm number of dinners by five business days ahead of each dinner meeting, aka, the Cut-off Date. That number is then the minimum for which the Whiff will be invoiced. After that date there’s also very little flexibility available for an upward revision.

To be confident of a dinner reservation, you must reply “Yes” to the e-invitation – and make full payment – before noon on the Cut-off date, e.g., Wednesday, the week before a regular Tuesday meeting. If payment isn’t received by that time, your reservation cannot be guaranteed.

Post Cut-off date dinner reservation requests or payments:
The Whiff has no choice but to treat  your reservation as tentative . All tentative reservations will be considered, but unhappily there will be times the Whiff simply won’t be able to accommodate some latecomers. Please only attend the dinner after receiving a Confirmed Reservation email from RSVP@Whiff-of-Grape.ca

Late Cancellations
Once the Cut-off deadline has passed, should there be a need to cancel an already paid reservation, please notify the Whiff by email to rsvp@whiff-of-grape.ca so that food will not be wasted. Since the Whiff has had to guarantee payment to the host club for the committed dinner count, refunds to confirmed members and guests will not be issued in the case of cancellation or non-attendance.

The Tigray Conflict – David Ross (Ottawa) – October 26, 2021

David Ross has just returned to Canada from northern Ethiopia where he worked from March until September as an access and civil-military coordination officer. Contracted by RedR Australia to the United Nations  Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), David facilitated humanitarian access in Tigray Region, an area severely disrupted by conflict since November 2020. The emergency is vast, complex, and often dangerous. Moreover, the pressures caused by the several hundred thousand people who have flooded into cities and internally displaced person camps, continue to be immense. David  worked alongside many hard-working, innovative and committed humanitarians who made the tour of duty all the more fulfilling.
