News just in, the ticket price will include a buffet lunch on saturday!

Also we are going to have a raffle for a fully painted engineers team! Your ticket will get you one raffle ticket, then you will be able to buy extra tickets at a cost of £5 per strip of 5 tickets, all proceeds from the raffle will go to WAAC.

Dependant on the number of tickets sold we will probably do another raffle as well for other prizes on the day!

Following the release of the latest OP doc, this could well be the 1st 64-man season 3 tournament of the year so we hope to see you there.
