The above is basically minutes from our last meeting too. It was all August ideas. Many many action points.

Hey, sorry about not being in touch, looks like soundproof is not going ahead for the 8th, I understand this is a bit short notice to arrange something else for that Saturday.

Basically I thought the other guys were going to work on it while I was away but they did not so we are left with only one act.

I will make one last attempt to sort it but it looks unlikely.
