Ash, your right the evelopes will be picked for you. you will need to check with John if he is in on the sunday evening when you come through but if he is i cant see there being a problem with collecting then.
i will text you your numbers and if you want when you pick me up on the sunday morning i can even give you your envelopes with the photo in it.

any good for you?

Gazza we will let everyone settle down. and get there but im guessing the drawing will start to get underway about 3ish as long as people are happy to do that. tbh i didnt really put a time on this i was just going to go with flow of the aftgernoon. but i guess with 30 koi to draw numbers then draw envelopes we will need to get jiggy with it
