The reason I have chosen a Sunday is because that is what most people want. Weekdays are out as most people have daytime jobs and Saturdays tend to be more family oriented or busy coaching days. The last workshop was really enjoyable so I hope we see a good turnout. I was not aware that Milton Keynes has a Sunday railway problem, Liam firstname.lastname@example.org

^Hehe - the "problem" is not with MK's rail, but the fact that I'd have to catch a train on the Saturday night to get there for 9 on Sunday.
Still, it's possible I could play the birthday card (no pun intended) and get use of the car. *crosses fingers.

We have some vacancies on this Workshop as a few UKRSA members have had to pull out, so anyone interested in attending, please email me at email@example.com for more details. We should have some string freebies from Yonex and Ashaway, Liam
