Guys, thank you all for the nice words, it's really appreciated!

Got back yesterday & Sharon texted us to see if it was ok to call up about 8pm.  Couldn't believe it, door bell rang and there was Sharon, Jock, Dave B, Dermot, Dave L & Darren with a hugh bunch of flowers and a card - which was also signed from Peter, Mamadu, Vinnie, Jude & Des  (I think they forgot to put Mickey Man on it)   That meant so much to me - Thank you all.

I'll be putting a report on http://www.irishfoosball.net/  in the next few days....

If it wasn't for Norm I would have never have won this, he's helped me with all parts of my game, telling me when parts of my game were good and not to change it, telling me in July my 5 bar was garbage and told me how to fix it with way more options, putting up with my impatients when he's explaining some thing to me, encouraged me to practice and knowing before me that I could win.  Also he was there in the final and I think I turned to him in every time out.  
Thanks to Mel who said "Any time you sit on the ball you score"
Thanks to Rob A. who came out with the worst comment of the day which really made me LOL and relax.

Can't wait to see how your game has improved since I saw you last (I haven't seen you at an English tourny for quite a while now!).
