A Round Robin.

Done! Very exciting! Ophie and I had oodles of fun...

Although once I gave my apologetics speech in the wrong room! All I had to do was switch places with another competitor, so it all worked out all right. Still... (sigh).

One (awesome) novice made my day. He said:

"At first, when everyone was talking about Qualifying tournaments, they were calling them "Qualifiers" and I had no idea what they were talking about. I was thinking, 'Koala fires? Why would you want to go to a Koala fire?'"

Is that an epic quote or what? The rest of the day I kept saying (in my Aussie accent), "Crikey! It's a Qualifier!"

Time for bed...

Grace, earnestly looking forward to the rest of the year's Qualifiers/Koala Fires!
