See you all next week again for a morning bash.

Results from tonight’s club shiai. Congratulations to all cup holders. Everyone who attended this evening and made the efforts are also winners. Keep trying - this is the chance to apply all you have practiced. Remember it can only get better from here. Citing the famous words of F.
