There was no issue with Andy's cancellation. I recieved it and acted upon it. I thought I'd replied to cancellations sent directly to me, but it seems I missed Andy out.....sorry.
The thing is, as it gets nearer to the event, it gets pretty hectic at club level. I've recieved and sent loads of e-mails acknowledging cancellations and session changes, and direct bookings. I even e-malled competitors whose submitted grade was lower than that confirmed by the BFTA so that they wowuldn't turn up to Tawd Vale to be met with a higher grade than expected.
The truth is that you get to a point where all your efforts are directed towards ensuring that everything is right for those that are attending, leaving little time to ensure that those that aren't are entirely happy.
Brutal, I know, but it's fact.
