Dawn and I are hoping to be home to coincide with the Blackpool team event on February 3rd & 4th. If someone could find us a place on a team that would be brilliant. If not, I guess we'd just have to sit at the bar and drink Smiley

Cracking schedule this. I love the mini-festival feel of the dates....more Omaha is always welcome.

The only problem is it might cut down on my Friday "APAT Weekend" drinking!*

*Ok...not really.
