Good news!

Everton (the only Liverpool based team still in the FA Cup) have been drawn away in the 5th round which takes place on the same weekend at this tournament. So hotels should be a lot more available, and any that were booked up will likely now have many cancellations.

Just an update - Boris is away on his (proper) honeymoon now, and wont be available until next Sunday (9th). So in the mean time, if you have any questions about the tournament then please get in touch with me.

joe.bundy@britfoos.com

Also, please don't phone Boris until next Sunday! If you do, I'll find out where you live - pass that on to Annie - and she'll have licence to do anything in retaliation for you interrupting their honeymoon by distracting Boris with foos stuff!

Joe.

We will be using the ITSF Garlando ball, which was indeed the same ball as used at Warwick 2012.

The ITSF and Garlando have, for once, not changed their ball this year :wink:

It appears you have left out the most important event, Mr. Shovelton!

2BRB Finals

Rob Atha / Giuliano Bentivoglio 10 - 0 Alex Shovelton / John Shovelton

Never before has there been such a dominating performance in the last decade of uncompetitive 2BRB.

Will get results up in a few mins (at least from KOs) remaining results (non-qualifiers in groups) in next day or two.

The rankings won't officially be updated until 1st March, but I hope to be able to provide a list of promotions in a day or two.
