The SABCCI 2006 Championship Show Schedule is now available online at http://homepage.eircom.net/ ~sabcci/53RD%20SHWPGE. HTM

If you are willing to use the online facility, please let me know as soon as possible at tony@sabcci.com We are trying desperately to keep costs down in everybody’s interest, and each downloaded schedule is money saved in printing and postage. We had a very disappointing response to this request last year, when we sent out 92 requests to use the online facility and received only six replies.

PLEASE help us to keep these costs down - your co-operation is greatly appreciated. We look forward to welcoming you to Dublin in October.
