    So, When I started a similar thread just a few weeks ago about Derby contest (A small contest) there were 82 posts and 5328 views....

    Is there less enthusiasm in this area? Or do you like to keep things a secret?

    Is there just Boarshurst and Kippax in section 2 (The organisers have allowed 2 hours for this section)?

    Hi, Just fort I would write a thread to see what people are playing at the Tameside Open Championship this year?

    We played "Music from Kantara" last year coming second in the fourth section but this year we are playing "Othello".
