Very excited for this event. With the Glen Gibbs award passing to Clarke Wagner, am I required to bring it to tomorrow's tournament for returning?
Thanks!
John Patrick

If players use caps to enter the event, Google sheets keeps the caps. Anything beyond copy / paste from that point is above my paygrade. Good luck defending the title you shared with me last year.

If you could, that would be good. Thanks John. It's great to have the Tasmanian Junior Champion (i.e. you) playing in both events.

Owen Swan has now also registered for the Lightning, so: 17 for the Cup / 13 for the Lightning.

Entries for the Cup officially close at 5 p.m. - but in Tasmania that means you can probably still play if you're there by about 11.20 tomorrow morning - as long as there are enough bits and the covid police wave you through.

Interesting results ... congrats to James and Eddy on their victories.

(Apologies for my absence - clash with a field trip.)

Thanks Kevin, the Cup did have some rather odd results, such as no draws on the first day and Ian getting his rook trapped in his first 2 games. Plus a clear 1st, 2nd and 3rd is pretty unusual.

Also: a special mention to Himash - who finished on 4.5 /7, defeating Ian Rout in R.2 and Eddy Amos in R.5. Just wait till he gets to High School ...
