I'm glad you have such faith in the program LL.  Unless Nick is chosen as well it should be safe.  lol:

I've just heard that Sir Bob has also applied for this so worst case scenario I'll be trapped in a tin can with Gandalf  Yargh:

Well it's official, I've not been shortlisted (not that I was expecting to make it past the first stage  lol: ) So you buggers aren't getting rid of me that easily.  eveilgrin:

Excellent new for us but not for you Meister.  Good for you for applying though and I don't suppose that this will be the last one.  cloud9:

They are planning to send out more groups in future so I'll keep applying and see how my luck holds. The advantage there being that if I do make it, the longer the colony has been going beforehand the better it will be set up.  :thumbsup:
