Congratulations to Leith Davis and all at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada. The following was received from Bill Dawson:

Thanks to everyone who came down to Harbour Centre on Jan. 25 to take part in the Burns Day marathon reading. It was a tremendous success! There were about 250 people who came by for it at different times, and the event was featured on a number of media: CBC TV, CTV, CityTV, News 1130, 650AM, etc. We set the record for the longest continuous recitation of Burns: 4 hours, 12 minutes and 27 seconds! Woohoo! Some media coverage of the event in case you want to see more details:

Thanks again! We couldn't have done it without your help!
