This course was a technical journey, featuring several back-side and threadle challenges.

The 50×50 Premier league tends to attract teams that desire very advanced technical challenges, and the opportunity to test their skills against other teams around the world. While the January participation was slight; we expect this competition to heat up considerably in 2018.
