Some Past Players' Comments

 
This was my first Congress, and I found it a most enjoyable experience.

Thought it was well run. I like the fact that I can relax in a hotel that faces the sea.

Thanks for all your hard work. Pity my play did not match the excellent organisation and running of the event.
