    You love the drive in your Hyundai, Liz! Good to have you with us. I will be playing with Lympstone at Torquay in the Open Section but unfortunately (some may say fortunately!!) due to an injury I will be playing timps and not principal cornet!! Looking forward to a good day and meeting up with friends. All the best to all competitors!
