    Well done, Garvin.

    An absolute credit to you. I know you take your arbiting seriously and I'm sure you deserve the recognition.

    Cheers

    Well done GG ... top effort!

    Congratulations!

    May I add my congrats, GG. As an arbiter myself (club level) I know this is a great achievement.
    God exists. Short and to the point.

    First of all, thanks to the mods

    Thank you for the kind words. Hopefully on towards the IA title. Much harder to get in Australia considering the small amount of tournaments available and especially considering that I live in Brisbane.

    I have had a bit of a chuckle that my title was awarded in Turkey

    Garvin is referring to the fact that the mods deleted a trolling post by antichrist in this thread.
