Make that 9, unless our contest secretary has pulled his finger out and got around to withdrawing us - a couple of key players not being able to make it coupled with the need to 'bed in' some new players has made it unviable for us, unfortunately.
Can confirm that Staffs have withdrawn...some kinda lurgie going round the band has left us at somewhat less than full strength. And I was just starting to work out how my part went as well......! I'm going to the contest anyway for the beer, so I'll see y'all there.
PS. Hi James - not seen you on tMP before - good to have you around!
