This Looks Excellent. But Why is only advertised now? I see it was put on the BF Website on 4th March. But still, A couple of months notice would have been better. or was this weekend advertised somewhere else?

Why is it on a Saturday too? The last two years it was on a Sunday which was great because it was my day off with no Fencing at all!
