My pitch has been booked as part of a group, and now I'm the only one going. I contacted James, and he said this was fine, but I might have to give the name of the person who made the booking when I get there... As long as you have your son's name, and you receipt from Paypal, or email confirmation, I'm sure you'll be fine! 

On another note, just seen this:

How cool would it be to get a chance to see this?
