Free booze at least.

So,  turns out I misunderstood how this Strongbow challenge worked.  I made it to the final round of casting,  not the final round.  My mistake.  So at the eleventh hour I got an email confirming such and fortunately saved my train fare. Not too disappointed though,  I got some free cider for getting this far,  and don’t have to perform in front of 200 strangers.  Again.
