    11/12/13 ... 18/19 (sorry for cross threading)

    now if they can travel from morelia in mexico to linares in spain and call it one tournament ...

    just imagine if we travelled from ballarat one weekend to melbourne the next

    why even a combined 9 or 10 round international norm tourney might yet be created ...

    i have a dream ...

    no, someone please just put me to sleep with a decent blow to the head

    Michael Baron has just mentioned the MCC calendar in his post about the June Weekender coming up… and for easy reference, here's the calendar thread, with revisions and all.

    Hope the weekender goes well.

    As far as I know, the allegros will be held as it has been announced. It would be useful to see a MCC confirmation though.
