A big thankyou to all the planners who made the effort that made seventeen good night events possible. Also the behind-the scenes officials at MAROC and GRAMP who organised the series, arranged permissions, registrations etc.
Probably the most popular DNC series so far. A total of 108 people entered at least one event and 39 people did at least nine events. Please leave any comments about the format of the series, suggestions for improvements etc.

Penultimate league table after 16 events. Third place in both tables still undecided.
Points table with only two events to go. Joe and Ewan have unassailable leads, and in second places Matthew and Joel will be hard to catch. Still close competition for third places.
Who won the “best course” and “toughest of tough” trophies last year? Could you either bring them to the final meal or get them to me before then. Thanks
