Thoroughly enjoyed this weekend... this has got to be a favourite of mine. No changes required, although a football points system might stop people from playing for draws which would be interesting.

Very well organised and an enjoyable tournament throughout. Thanks to everyone for their hard work making it a very pleasant weekend.
