    Have you contacted the organiser Keith? With that number of bands, you could charge bands 30.00 for a copy of their CD (which I bet most will take) and that's a nice few days work?

    AFAIK, no recordings. Pity - we've been 'not bad' once or twice....

    Bit like Harrogate, but not quite as dead for the band.

    You're gonna miss us - shame.... :rolleyes:

    Shame....I'd have been quite happy to come up to do it - I'm involved in a thing from York Minster next weekend, but the weekend after I'm having 'off' so I could've been around.

    If my timing is okay, I should make it to Perth at about 13:30.
