A venue is found for the tournament in September

Brett Davis is coming back with good news as he has found a venue for the tournament. It is at the Mega Games Trader at 388 High Street Penrith. They are selling the game there so were more than happy for us to have the tournament to show people what the game is like. Our start time is 4.00pm as well, the only thing Brett would need some help with is equipment, he has one board and soon to be two but he doesn't think his metal goals will be here on time for the day.
The tournament will count for the WASPA circuit (see link at http://waspa-circuit.blogspot.com).
The Mega games website is http://www.megagames.com.au/
The tournament could be the first step to create a new club in the area.
