Just to say thanks again from Linwood Rangers 2003's for a fantstic weekend. The boys all had a fabulous time on what was there first tour away and the tournament was extremely well organised. The fair play award made the weekend for the kids as it was their second such award in the last 2 tournaments they have played in. Garry, Linwood Rangers 2003
