Whilst participation was down (as is most of these events late in the calendar) It was pleasing to see the talent that turned up.
There is a new tentative date for next year which will be Feb 15 2014. This should ensure a greater participation especially as it is
hoped to have a situation where the overall winners will be Masters Qualifiers.
