A reminder to all that the first round of the 2020 Blitz Grand Prix will start tomorrow at the usual time of 8ish.

We think we’ve found something better than Swiss Gravy (well, pen and paper would be better than Swiss Gravy), and touch wood things will run smoothly enough tomorrow, but no guarantees…!
