some of you are still undecided about coming to Spain... Well let me tell
you, you will kick yourselves if you don't. Who knows if a gathering like
this will take place again and you wouldn't want to say 'oh if only'. We
still have some tickets available and although most accommodation is now
booked out we can still help you get sorted... So come on over (you know
you want to) and be part of something special.... Not only will you be
able take part in 3 days of great music, you will get a chance to meet up
with all those, whom you only meet via e-mail. We have fans coming from
all over the world, so it will be a magical time.... Spain in September is
wonderful, not too hot but just right. The food is great, also the wine
:-))) and we have lined up a very special venue in the rural town of
Huetor Tajar. Why not make it a short holiday, spend a few more days
taking in the majestic scenery of the Granada area, you won't be
disappointed. So come on, meet the gang, make Spain your destination in
September, you won't regret it.... Hasta Luego, John".
