Springtime Jamboree: The Glasgow Line-Up!


My fingers are sparking! The keyboard is going WILD these days! Between tying up loose ends for the Springtime Jamboree (Glasgow) and getting things rolling for the Edinburgh edition, my hands may well just fall off! Rest assured that I AM typing as fast as I can guys and gals and all the info y'all need will be posted here in the next two seconds!
