I've been accepted for MSF Instructor training the weekend of the rally, and consequently have to give it up. Unfortunately, I've also misplaced my registration form, and now don't have the refund procedure. Also, I'm afraid that I'll have to duck out on my volunteer responsibilities at the battery charging station. Sorry about that Brad.
It looks like it will be a great rally, I've been torturing myself (well, not too much, I'm not a masochist) about all the great seminars that I'll miss, and all the cool people I won't meet (at least not this year).

(posh English accent required for this next part)
Sacrifices for the greater good and all that sort of rubbish - pip, pip stiff upper lip etc. Next year for sure.
