Ace Race - 2010

Post by DILLIGAF » Wed Mar 17, 2010 10:01 pm

Hello all,


Essex are planning to host an Ace Race for 2010.

Our plan is to have the event in October, i would like to gather your thoughts on us holding an event?

whilst i understand that this date and/or location is not the best for everyone what are peoples thoughts on having two Ace Races this year? this additional Ace Race may help more players get an opportunity to play in this fun event and reduce travel costs for everyone.

Steve

the second Ace Race wouldn't be played at Essex.

If a second Ace Race was held further up the country this would give player that couldn't afford the travel expence to Essex additionally If it was held on a different day again would give players some flexability.

Thoughts?
