Some Past Players' Comments

 
I thought all the administators and arbiters ran the congress excellently. Liked the fact that you observed two minutes silence for the war heroes. All in all well done and compliments to Kitsons the solicitors who sponsored the event in memory of Mr Batten who was a real nice guy.

A very enjoyable weekend, organisers very helpful and the hotel provides all one needs. A very good idea water being provided but could the staff be asked not to put ice in it, thank you.
