We can smile now it's over & a success.

This event probably would not have taken place without the input from, at the time, our newest Lion, Lion Denise, and the confidence of Lion Eric driving it along.  FANTABULOSA!
A big THANK YOU to all who helped make this the super event that it was. Those who didn't quite make it to the finals better luck next time.

And finally - Yes! a certain Lord was at the event as promised, did you spot him?
