After this time there may be a few places left, but there will be a £5.00
charge (BAA members and non members alike).  Contact the BAA office now, or
book your place online

Do let us know straight away if you have already booked, but will not now
be able to come, so that we can give your place to someone else.

alpha sets so please go to the table appropriate to your surname to help
ease any overcrowding.
