Alan was in bright and early but the deadline for lists has now come and gone. Hopefully Runners & Riders will follow soon? With such a wide period I'm expecting a huge amount of variety - or will they all be Swiss?

If David (my son) hasn't sent his list yet let me know and I'll kick his arse. I've already given him the figures so I know he has the list ready.

Yes, small tables make the variety, plus it leads to quicker results.

I am also impressed with twenty players signing up, a week after Burton where a different twenty players are doing fog am as well!

CleArly demand for more tournament spaces....

Thanks very much to David & the rest of the Winchester team for laying this on for us. It's a great venue and I was even able to pick up some groceries for the wife!

Thanks to my opponents, Colin, David, David & Martyn for 4 very enjoyable games - all played in an excellent spirit. Hope to be there again next year.
Pete
