Put me and the Diva down as people who want to turn up?

I'm not sure if I can make it this early in the year, but it'd be rude of me to not bring the guy that kicked your arses for the last 2 years running...

Wont actually be the start of my BB calender next year, looking at dragging the UKbbl into the 'UKTC'?

Such a shame that the welsh contingent can't be bothered travelling north with their home tourney so close to it?

Guess they have nothing to play for other than who gets the sanctimonious 'pork chop' during the NAFC?

The 'Bristol Massive' is looking at showing their face, why not you guys? :P

As I live near the Station it would be silly for me not to pass by and offer anyone getting the train or coming by coach/bus a lift to the venue. So let me know your arrival times and I'll stick you on the list.

So far got one Angry Hobbit on the list :D
