Hi everyone

Just wondering if there were any plans to hold a significant tournament in Melbourne over the Cup long weekend.

I know it is relatively early, but some Inter-Staters like to know as soon as possible to start putting aside a few bucks and start booking cheap accommodation and flights.

Feel free to have this thread removed :D once an official thread is launched (if there is anything going ahead...).

cheers
Garrett.

I think MCC usually holds one if I'm not mistaken.
