I hope the broadcast worked a little better for everyone after the correction of what was my mistake

Sorry about that :oops:

It's "proper" work (as normal...) tomorrow but I should be able to monitor things!
Cheers

I'm not sure I can identify anywhere I would have preferred to be white (without the use of an engine).......

Leonard

I think most of the credit for the successful broadcast of the live games is down to Dave Clayton. It is him that you should be thanking.

Anyone know where the results can be found? Maybe, we will have to wait for the round two draw?
