Message from friend...
With regret we reached the decision to cancel the Stand up event that was scheduled to take place on 19th April 2009. The cancellation was simply due to lack of numbers to cover cost of the event.
All fighters that have entered and paid money will be refunded within 7 days.
We apologise once again,
Wise old tree
