Well I am back after a 2 week break. The reason I stood down was for personal family reasons, as it was becoming difficult to produce the newsletter. Following a discussion with Geoff Morphitis we agreed that I would continue producing the weekly newsletter, and will be issued on Thursday of each week.
For the remaining newsletter information and results
