Tommy - yea, a bit of a rip off but i could stomach that as a one-off i think. Another reason to maybe enjoy rather than race. And, of course, if it was a thread get together that's another thing that softens the blow and worth paying for.

lfr - yes, in theory you could. But you have to supply your GFA details on application so they'd know if you had it before the ballot and it would be horrible if you lost out because of that. Be interesting to hear what they say, good luck
