Shame I only just saw this, I probably would have turned up if I knew about it sooner.

Good effort getting everything organised, it looked like a successful tournament, if you are planning another one it would be good to know so I can try and get up to play it this time.
Lose one queen and it is a disaster, Lose 1000 queens and it is just a statistic.
