David - there has been a real stampede in response to your competition. The following people have said they would like to meet before the 02 concert in London - and enter your competition!! A couple of people enquired about the prize - I told them you were organising that side of things (not me!). There are about 35 of us so far. We need to get our thinking caps on and decide where to meet and when. Maybe something in the afternoon (tea and oranges) and then a pub near the O2. Harry has suggested an old, traditional one near London Bridge. If anyone else has any ideas please pm either myself or David...... Michael and Songul have both said they are also happy to help with organising the day...it's going to encourage anyone, we're thinking of running a FREE 'Pin the Wry Smile on the Leonard Cohen' competition.
