That's great news Paul

The UK team are bubbling with excitement and send our commiserations to our Finnish friends.

I think our dates are carved in stone as 17th to 21st September 2013 but I want to double check with the venue before confirming that.

We will get our team into gear in the next week or so and start that dialogue with you over the budget. Will you be assigning a board member to liaise with us?

Thank you to all the selection group for your confidence in us
