You know, like always.


At least you get to the semis.

That sounds fine but might be a bit Catch-22, as I think some will want to know the format and how many tracks, before deciding whether to join in. Having said that, if you are kindly offering to run it then despite you obviously taking on board the views/dscussions, it becomes your call and I for one stand by that.

I've already selected ten tracks, but I'll find some more for the shortlist.

Sign up list posted.

Reading through the dialogue on the Cup-board most people seemed to like the 8 + 3 format best but if numbers are low, 10 + 5 is an option too. Let me know which you prefer.

Ive set the starting date tentatively on July 17.

Please please please track vs. track. None of this list nonsense.

I am committing to play either way, however.

Sweet Jesus....

Well, if the people that have signed up for this already agree to a song vs song -format, then we will do that.
In that case it really depends on the number of entrants how many tracks need to be submitted.
