Editor’s Note

Welcome to the third(I believe) issue of the newsletter, and the first with me at the helm. I have stayed very close to spinwizard’s original design, just added some small things here and there. If you have suggestions for me, I am more than glad to hear them.
Also, as the tournament forum environment changes very quickly, I have decided to make the frequency of publication weekly, instead of fortnightly.
