Now that the World Championships are over, I would like to say a  personal thank you to all the officials who gave up their time and 'sweat' not to mention expense in travel cost and accommodation to make the whole weekend event a great success.

During Sunday evening some of our most experienced officials were taken off areas and were replaced this was because we had promised each country that we would have neutral officials from the semi finals onwards where possible.

Sometimes this can be a pain for us as we had to change world class refs such as Mr Steve Tottle for example but it stops the possibility of overseas countries going back home with any negative thoughts or feelings.

In our efforts to make the world championships memorable for our guests we sometimes don't point out the work our officials do to  make it all possible.

Once again thank you we will not forget your support.
