The AGFA Cup is a great link between the three eras of Australian Subbuteo (70s, the 80s-90s, and now post-2010) and that tradition continued over the weekend with the staging of the 16th Cup at Good Games Chatswood.

A highlight of the tournament was the appearance of some new faces — Mark Killingbeck and Heidi van Scheik of Hipfingerz and young Ollie Kruse for the Northern Falcons.
