"Gentlemen, as I was walking my dog this morning I reflected that it has been a while since I started a new tournament. Time to rectify that I think.........    I've got a lot on with the work up of the CMAK-ETO Cross Club Campaign so a new tournament can't be anything too fancy, but nonetheless this should still be quite entertaining I hope.
