    I'll get in with my wishes of good luck for the new format now, mate. It's been a tough few years for these events and I wish you and the CAQ well.

    You'd be favourite too seeing as Solo will be playing in Victoria.

    I'm in too. Good chance for ole Garrett to do the Qld Open/ Qld Champ double.

    **edit** assuming I qualify.

    ok I'll see if I can work out how to do that on Monday.

    But I 'm definately in, I want to have a go at the time control.

    If it's three players can we have a quadruple round robin ?
