Fear not Mr. Darlington, hope is not all lost. I heard a rumour that there talk of a UK Championship event this year that will be sending the winner to the World Championships.
You did it once before, so I would suggest you begin your training.
That was awesome, I've still not put my pix up yet (though I will when I stop being so lazy). I hope they run it again this year, or better yet just send us again by default!
