Just talked to Golden about this. Might work for the 17th (St Patrick's Day)  or 18th or the next week. Brown water & green beer anyone?  :P

I agree with Wormdrowner on this one - either of the next two weekends would be better!

We have a new date:

17th of March, 2012  (Saint Patrick's Day)

Details to follow.
