As a fighter that lasted 5 rounds on the sable field
of death, I have to say - Man, that was fun.

As the event stewerd for QC, I have to say -  Many,
many thanks to Neassa and her helpers for running a
great list and to Iago for being bored as
marshall-in-charge and to all the fighters for keeping
Iago bored and for giving the Queen a fine champion
and a fine day.

My congratulations to Don Brenden, take good care of
Her Majesty.
