Not exactly sure where it gets you to revisit an event like this from last year. The Majors went through the application process in a bid to determine if an event like this could somehow trigger greater interest in the product locally, and to say the least it got lukewarm results.
**** happens and you move on. Not every Mem Cup will be successful, depending on your definition of successful. Could Windsor have done a better job? Probably, but as I say what's done is done.
Better to look forward than to wax on about the past, no?
