    I will NOT be dropping out. I'll catch a sodding bus if I have to! I just don't have much luck with my car and the week leading up to shows ;)

    It should all be sorted by tomorrow morning.

    Just noticed my post. It was purely aimed at Dave and Karl cause they are not even attending Inters.
