    to alot of other ppl reading this thread, i suspect that quite a few players will be doing what Kevin is going to do, post their entry fee very close to the closing dates. Kevin, online payment should be available shortly if you wish to use that instead.

    Will you be flying virgin or jetstar?

    The latter. Coming over the day before, going back the day after.

    I think that after all that happened with this event, to still get 5 GMs is an excellent effort. It's especially pleasing that Darryl will be playing.

    also with the 5 confirmed gms playing and maybe a couple more to come if they wish, quite a few IM's will play for the chance of getting a gm norm. The chance to get a gm norm in our country is rare, so this is a good opportunity for IM's. Then that flows on for FM's too.

    Apparently Darryl signed up as soon as there was a change of organisers

    First, a big announcement on the BB that the unmentionable is not involved.

    Then the same in this week's enewsletter. Now that quote above.

    What does the unmentionable have to say about all this?

    All that has been done is just to emphasise that their is a change of organisers and that the previous organiser has nothing to do with the current running of events.

    No man . . . you went further. You suggested that your mob is more trustworthy to the GM than the unmentionable.

    And look, jenni's calling the unmentionable names! Nasty . . .

    i suggested no such thing you are trolling again and will promptly be ignored. If others want to debate with you, that is up to them, but i am not going to waste my time debating with you

    Nice to see someone else following my usage of Lord V in place of just saying "the unmentionable" or "he who shall not be mentioned".
