What a great idea for a tournament! :clap: :clap: :clap: Definitely something to be thought of and implemented in Victoria! I don't know if something like that has happened before!

I don't have a team, so I can't play?

Sure you can play. Like I said, we're in need of a player. Join our team of three. Just rock up tomorrow :)

Many thanks to NSWCA for a great and fun event and also to Laura for her great efforts to be a fair and thorough arbiter :clap:

Can we see a crosstable? I don't even know where everybody else finished! :eh:

Well done team! There were some interesting games, and young Anton Smirnov played well for the Norths A team. Fizz's team did their best too.
