Dear All,

I have been told the course went very well indeed.

I would have thought that 'A comprehensive resource for using Engarde written by the course tutors' would be a very useful document for any competition organser to have, especially when the tutors are Rodney Francis and Peter Smith. Could it be made available to people who were too old to attend the course?
