The good news is that the amount of interest shown in attending the rally has been very encouraging. The bad news is that if all the expressions of interest become bookings then we will be well over the limit of 30 people gathering for an outdoor event. Hopefully it means minimal disruption to holiday plans and that we can accept all who wish to come.   Mike & Steve Contact:  Mike Armstrong at mike271@tiscali.co.uk for more information Source:: http://www.ubt.org.uk
