    All,

    With great disappointment and much embarrassment, we have to announce that this event is now cancelled.

    There are many factors as to why this has been cancelled but the main and ultimate one being commitment of time.

    We had a great committee team and a special thank you has to go out to andy_k as he showed more willing than the whole team put together! (there is only so much a single person can take on)

    Although we did say that refunds are not possible, we will be refunding members. If you would like a refund please use the contact us by the 1st July 2010

    Maybee next year? :dk:

    Thanks a real shame but I can understand the reasons, it takes a lot of organising.

    A BIG thanks to those who made the effort. Hopefully next year?

    Regarding my ticket money, I am happy for it to be donated to a charity of your choice?

    Bummer :(. We've got our summer holiday booked around the event. Oh well, have to book extra nights on Chester. Bad luck Koolvin and thanks for the efforts to you and Andy. Must be a horrible feeling.

    Likewise, sorry that it is not going ahead, I'll just have to find somewhere else for lunch that day.

    Refund to Andy_K s choice of charity please.

    Thanks for the 'vote of confidence' Koolvin.

    It's a shame that we couldn't carry the momentum through to the finale but we all got dragged away due to other demands on our time. We all offered to help based on what we knew at the outset but (for me certainly) things changed and none of us could spend enough time working on the arrangements to guarantee the event being a success.

    Rayny, thanks for that suggestion - may I nominate Shelter as a worthwhile recipient of any donations.
