    Well done, it can't have been easy to fill all those chairs and good luck at the regionals.

    Without wanting to de-rail EYB's thread (so apologies to Ian, Mike and anyone else involved with the band), the last I heard was that Cott had (sadly) folded.

    I understand that 6 members of the band are playing at Barton at the Areas.

    This is as I understand it, very sad.

    There has been no official communication from Cott. so I have avioded any speculation.

    Anyway thanks everyone for your kind comments.
