  4. Can I jump in with a quick question please.... Is the event on;y open to guys/gals who are staying on site. Would my dad and myself be allowed to drive up one of the nights and have a little look aroud? Dad is just getting over bowel cancer so a tent/caravan stay is out of the question this year (fingers crossed for next year thou). We would love to have a look around if that is ok. Thanks Andy
  5. Any more news on this front ? Regards Andy
  6. Yep You could hire it up for up to 9 months in 3 month stints @ £90. At the end of each of the 3 month period you could carry on hiring for an additional £90 or return the sax with any monies paid counted as a hire cost. After the 9 months you would then pay a monthly sum over 6 months to finish paying for the instrument and its yours. The info of the scheme is shown here www.sax.co.** with ** being UK. Regards Andy
  7. *cough* Typo *cough* But you get the idea. I would jump at the chance of a hire/buy option on a ccd. Andy
  8. I hired/bought a saxaphone on a scheme like that. £90 hire for 3 months x 2 then either return equipment or pay 6x £50 monthly to own it. Was a fantastic scheme. Made a £900 purchase seem affordable and easy. Andy
  9. Thank you sooo much. Just starting out they are so much help Andy
  10. Is there any way that test data could be included ? Thinking how great it would be to see what you can do with that data and then let us loose with the same data as a way of hands on. Either way I would like to say a huge thank you for all your hard work Andy
