Andy - thanks for all new info - new system and plans for new season sound really interesting and exciting - if a lot more work for the professionals. Already looking forward to 2013 - lets hope it's a tad drier!
Just one little thought - the website says that as well as booking a digging slot you can add extra t shirts etc to your order. I didn't do this last time as I was in such a hurry to check out before somebody else took the weeks I wanted... But if the opportunity had been there to go back - perhaps after a digging slot was confirmed booked - and order extra items I probably would have gone for fleeces etc. Might the Trust not make more revenue if they let diggers order kit a bit later?
Good luck tomorrow everybody! Hope the system works smoothly and folks land the slots they're hoping for.
Hearts go out to everyone who lives in -- or has family/friends in -- NJ/NYC/Long Island and elsewhere who got hit so hard by Superstorm Sandy. We were very lucky here in Maine to get spared the worst of it.
