You are right, i should have started it, as i wrote above i will not wait anyone, but consider it first and last mistake since i have never hosted any tournament and this one was my first experience.
No problem; I am glad that despite such an extension every participant managed to come. Let us not forget about you, the one who on his birthday turned up himself and made such a memorable event! Tradition in various countries has that a person having a jubilee receives something - this time you were the one giving, for the sake of the ambience and fun of the tournament! It also was the first time I experienced such an event and it still is resonating with me. Nice thing to watch and feel, despite some minor hindrances that had been handled, like technical difficulties and the disorder.
Apart from that, I will make the retro-active coverage of the event, so that those who could not join would know about the tournament and its course of events.
