    With the continuing chaos with European air travel does anyone else think that UK participation in next weeks European Championships in Linz may be in serious doubt.

    Try booking one seat at the moment never mind 25+

    On the plus side it looks like airspace will be open for business tomorrow. Lets hope they clear the backlog quickly.

    Haha yeah, well I'm not planning our routes but if it goes boobs up and flights are cancelled we'd hopefully not have to drive the whole way and get a ferry to copenhagen from somewhere... Having said that, even then the shortest route is around 48 hours...

    I think we're ditching plan B natural in favour of plan B optimistic!!

    Probably just as well that we're not going this year, as we have no bridges or tunnels! Maybe see some of you next year instead! Good luck to all with the travel arrangements, hope the ash clears soon and the flights are back to normal.

    Driving to Austria

    For those thinking of driving to Austria.

    I've driven there many times over the years. It's easier than most people think!

    Just as a rough guide:
    Dover to Calais. French auto-route, into Germany, then through to Austria.

    Easy!!! Takes about 13 to 15 hours driving, (not including stops).

    If there's only a few then the train looks pretty easy (once you're in London):
    Eurostar to Brussels,
    High speed train from Brussels to Cologne,
    Overnight sleeper train from Cologne direct to Linz.

    Looks fairly straightforward and stress free, although goodness knows how much it will cost!!!

    Maybe they should just do the live stream in reverse.

    Each band playing in their local hall streamed through to the adjudicators.

    A sort of video conferencing band contest.
