New Email Address for Michael Crane - Biba Tournament Director


I am changing my primary email address for 2017. From 1 January I shall be archiving my NTL email account and replacing it with a Virgin Media account.

If you want my new email address you can email my NTL account with the Subject: "MC 2017 Email Address". Include in the text your name and your connection with me (if I don't recognise you you won't be sent the new address).

It is important you do exactly this as all emails will be filtered and only the filtered/recognised ones will be sent my new VM email address.
