Just to be clear, Britcon FoGR is ANY army from ANY book, yes?

Given where we currently are I think the end of March or sometime in early April may be realistic - but no guarantees.

Currently on 4, pretty much exactly the same as last year at this time.

Overall we're 10% up y-o-y across all periods so far

Up to 5 now, so looking set to be a more than viable event, and with more than 20 people keen to play at Derby there certainly seems to be a positive groundswell at the moment.

I'd be inclined to go with the revisions - assuming they are finalised and published soon. I guess we need a cutoff date though - end of June?

I think that's the plan - it's just a question of which ones!

Don't need amendments for that! I think the ones giving a built in penalty to Aussies are the best...

Although with Simon's submarining it would improve his chances!
