Yeah, defo interested.
Consider this a provisional YES - I just need to check nothing else is happening for me on these dates (and cancel them if they are - I'd prefer to do a 24hr gaming sesh tbh!)
I'll confirm for sure later but I'm so up for this!

I know left it too late to reply but I can't make it because I have to drive back to Preston when I finish with the event & it is physically impossible to do that + I don't have much cash for event (fuel & food)

Good Luck on the challenge  guys!
