*And here’s who’s on wot*. I’m afraid that as so many leaders put their
numbers in late, I’ve struggled to get leaders for certain activities, and
so there’s quite a few people that have got their 3rd or 4th choices.
Activities were allocated when closing date hit, and then people after then
got what was left.
