Attended this tournament 6 years ago when it was held at the Royal Highland Centre at Ingliston.
Went on the first night - guarantee of seeing every player play. Think there were 16 that year, so saw 8 games played. Not a sell out crowd but great atmosphere.
It was also memorable because it was the same day Pat Fenton was sacked. I wrote out one of those cards that are provided on the tables to write a ‘silly message’ and hopefully get yourself on TV. I wrote something along the lines of “please Mr Petrie, can I be the new Hibs manager”.
With it it sitting on my table waiting to get caught on camera, I gets a tap on the shoulder from a steward, saying “sorry you can’t use that. Rules of the tournament and tv that no football related messages are allowed. They don’t want to be associated with the game”. Was a bit gobsmacked to say the least. Also, apparently, if I’d had a Hibs strip on, I would have been refused entry as well!! WTF!
