    Very good turnout
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    “The destructive capacity of the individual, however vicious, is small; of the state, however well-intentioned, almost limitless. Expand the state and that destructive capacity necessarily expands, too, pari passu.”—Paul Johnson, Modern Times, 1983.

    Congratulations to Jacob Edwards who has taken out the Marcus Porter Memorial. Well done to Jayden Ooi who won a beanie for the best placed under 1000 prize.

    Congratulations to Tom Slater-Jones who led the way 6 grob points from 8 attempts and walked with coveted grob prize and won a beanie. Equal second was Charles Tsai and Hughston Parle who both scored 5 grob points. Once again a number of players embraced the grob theme and played the grob or reverse grob with a total of 65 attempts.

    Many thanks to a Tyson Walker, Joseph Curtain, Hughston Parle, Ian Lin, Joe Lin, Austin Chen, and Jayden Ooi who all came in their pj's.

    Many thanks to the Porter family who once again donated a beautiful clock trophy for the winner.

    Thank you to everyone who played and hope to see you next year.

    Thanks Shane, and thanks to all the participants - it's always a special event. Congratulations to Jacob - himself a Grob player and sympathiser for a long time - on a highly deserved victory.

    See you all there next year.
