Hehe - I like your confidence. I really dont think I will be anywhere near ready for a comp by the end of August. When I say I'm new to all this, I really do mean 'brand new'... I spent 2 hours this morning getting coached on how to pull the trigger!!!
My plan is to take part in some of the winter series of 'friendlys' so my goal is to get match fit by September / October time. No idea where / when these are yet but when I do, I'll pick one and use it as an incentive to get ready.
Thanks for the friendly encouragement though.
