  3. It was a pleasure for me, Shabbir and Minhaal to meet so many people, get so much advice, help and tips! It really was an awesome event!

    A massive thank you to Grant, Daz and all the organisers of the event and all those who gave me their advice on my dob.

    A special thanks to Nick (Cotterless45) for your notes, the book and all the advice! A special thanks to Daz for the tutorial! I hope to give it a go very soon!

    Hoping to make the next SGL event and to see you all again!
