Hi Hugh

I just wanted to say big kudos to you and Gavin for putting together an event like this! CTFs are always heaps of fun and a great learning experience. It is in fact so enticing, that I genuinely considered buying return flights from Nelson just so I could come over for the evening! Alas, it falls on a date where we have a big install job on so I can't make it. If it hadn't been thad day I would have taken advantage of the new Jetstar air fares and definitely come over.

Good on you for doing it. I know it can take a considerable amount of work to put something like this together.
