Re:

Dickie, Please feel free to wear your gown; I'm not how sure how many others will be though. If you're in Dundee 4ish you will be on time for the first round. However on Saturday, if one is not outside the Union at 9:30, one can't get in until 5 pm (crazy as it sounds, it's true). The Semis should s...

I'm going to try to have an exodus of St Andreans leaving at about half one although I have a feeling that because of Mr Rouf, I (and Rachael-Rachael and Joey) may not be leaving St Andrews until closer to two.
