    Id like to offer a huge thankyou on behalf of the entire MCC to Brad Ashlock who pretty much organised this whole event off his own boot! Well done Brad!

    apologies!

    Apologies to organisers and fellow players. Due to unforeseen circumstances (family of friends coming from QLD with Ballarat as destination have to stay with me since my friend's wife is unwell) I can't make it to the MCC! I hope everything else goes well and the tournament is successful! Cheers and good luck to all!
