If you are going to the big tournament and want to stay in touch with other 'opolis members and stay in tune with what we are up to, join this group. I'll keep you posted on a group meet-up or two on the grounds via this group.

I am thinking that i will move myself up soon but not sure. Be in touch man!
Hi Chin, I received your comment, thank you. You have a pretty wide budget for a machine so you can afford the best. I've always liked manual machines. We've become so dependant on AC, what if it goes out? By all means you could consider a drop-weight model, they are slow. If you decide on an electronic model, they are all pretty much the same, just different brand names. I'd find out who the main manufactures are and stick with them.
