BBA Webiste alive and well...again
The BBA website is alive and well again following a mini hernia which resulted in its bed ridden state for a couple of days. In effect, so I am told by those who know, there was a problem with the server, to technical for me hence the hernia!

Re uniforms, I think its an excellent idea if uniforms are worn, but not a requirement, the more colourful the event the better. We have arranged for the event...
