    This has all happened so fast haha.

    I won my group's man of the year award, and my Consultant tipped off the local rag.

    Well one thing led to another and today's paper came out and there we are on page 6!! And it also now looks like we may be doing a magazine article or two as well!! Gonna enjoy our 15 minutes of fame hehe

    I have added a picture of the story to my album and if it works there should be a copy of it here : [​IMG]

    Pah!! It's too small to make out, but if you do wanna see it just have a peak in my album :)
