Once we have a confirmed team (replied by you as confirmed) we will have a team meeting for an information/questions session. This will most likely coincide with our first team practice session.

We appreciate that time between selection and the actual contest is (and always has been) short and we ask for your understanding as we prepare for this event. We will divulge all information as necessary but please feel free to contact us as necessary. At our team meeting we will go over the options for transport, accommodation, food, team kit and costings. This meeting needs to happen before end of next week and we will broadcast this ASAP.

 

Once again, congratulations and PLEASE reply ASAP with your confirmation of selection acceptance.
