    I’ve heard that fantastic have pulled out of Plymouth, hope it’s nothing too serious, what with the sad news recently with kimbolton

    Spent some time talking to Rino this afternoon, there is nothing untoward and FF have genuine reasons for withdrawing, a real shame as Rino is a great show designer and I know he was really looking forward to the opportunity.

    Seems to be becoming less and less of a champion of champions sadly.

    With three previous Champions withdrawn from the competition it was suggested to TESA that the team days are restructured so that the three remaining previous winners fire together head to head on a Champion if Champions night and the remaining competitors fire together on the other night. This will preserve the CofC element of the competition. The organisors are yet to decide on how to proceed or confirm a replacement company.
