Not attending BAVA 2011

This is to inform one and all that I am not able to attend the BAVA 2011 conference due to refusal of my VISA application. Like every other year I have applied for VISA and blindly attach the letter I get from BAVA. This year, somehow there was a line that has created the problem. The reason for refusal has been clearly stated in the document and we also do not have appeal.

I believe we also cannot reapply till the mandatory processing period of 3 months. Am I wrong? Please enlighten me if this is period is less.
