End of day 1, surf (peninsula british 6mu machine gun corp) and me (1800 austrians) at top of table, but all players pretty clumped together. Excellent venue - cheap beer and great food. Phillip even slaughtered Goldsboro brits!
Now watching blues kicking hurricanes butts, so all is good in the world.

Looking forward to tomorrow's games.
