Hi Cam, I would love to come but the 5 1/2hr drive each way is hard to justify. If it was a few days, a week sure but that is a lot of driving/emissions. Is there a chance it could be streamed over the internet please?
[I think that live streaming may not be possible for this one, sorry. But there will certainly be a write up afterwards if we can’t stream].
