We are now Under Starter's Orders;  the race is about to begin. 

Welcome to the 2014 ANC in Sydney, which is a held under the auspices of the ABF and the NSWBA.  We are delighted to have you here.

My name is Marcia Scudder and I wear the Tournament Organiser hat.  However, truth be known, organising this event has been a duopoly.  Every step of the way has been carried out with John Scudder as consultant, adviser etc etc.
