Anybody who wants to have a tournament included in the championship is more than welcome to run one and we'll include it if they want. Only requirements are 8+ players, EUK lists, EA rules and 2/3 3/5 games using GT scenario.

Having said I would suggest, and this has been shown in the past, that having events too close together damages both events.

Could we have a 1 day, 4,000 point, 2 game, Northerners v Southerners event in April?

There are loads of us who are flexibly 'both', so sides should always be even.

First game decided by lists from each captain, 2nd round by Swiss.

Not a tournament about invidividual prizes, more about being social and having banter.

Given we're now in the position where the south wouldn't just get rolled by the north, i'd be up for this at some point :) Might make for an interesting bit of fun over the christmas period if people were available.

A festive north Vs south sounds fun. I'd be keen.

Plus, can we put McPocalypse II (redux) down for Saturday 27th January please? And perhaps a preliminary booking for West Lothian early July please.

I like that (whichever side I fall on).

April as good as any, please not the 7th tho, k?

Venue? Maybe somewhere in the east would be a nice change :p

Hi all, Dave Gillan here replying to John Coles post above.

Been speaking to John about when to run events. We had been thinking of joining up and doing 2 events in Glasgow/West Lothian. One event in Glasgow in January & one in July in West Lothian.

Now i agree with the points above about is it worth having so many smaller events stretched all over the place. However, i believe that the events in Scotland will bring out a lot of old time players and also some new ones which promotes the hobby.

I've already persuaded an old friend to come to events and i've got another 3 people who want to learn to play so that makes at least 12 possible just from West Lothian.

I'm in the process of finding a venue for a full day with food supplied for all who are not used to coming to Scotland/West Lothian and Glasgow. Bathgate (in West Lothian) is directly in the middle of Edinburgh & Glasgow. Has great direct trains and other forms of transport & hopefully we can take care of accommodation, even if it means hiring a hall with bunk beds for everyone to stay in and go out for meals and drinks the night before and after competition.

And yes, i would like to see it as an official event and would love to see it being part of a tournament scene and hopefully as new players come on board maybe even a Scottish team at some point.

Dave

Does anyone think McPocalypse on 20th January, instead of 27th Januray would make a difference? I was thinking that way it there would be a slightly bigger gap with the February tourney.

Any thoughts?

I think there is a good chance that WOTT will be moving to April next year to make space for a potential event at the London GT....

2 Scotland events sounds like a plan - Dan's made 5 or so in England this year so its definitely doable the other way round in travel terms. I'll certainly try to get up for both. Plus a Scotland team at next year's Euro's would be awesome. John, I think there's a big mega game planned in London on the 20th which might lose you a few players so I'd stick with later in the month if you can. From memory, Winter Warmer & Counterattack were only a couple of weeks apart this year and that was fine.

Hi. We are still working on dates for Exeter. April was looking like the best compromise last time we spoke bit has a clash with something or other. Does this mean Oct is free or will be filled by another event?

I seem to recall the idea was to swap the Dark Sphere event and Wrath of the Tyrant so there aren't multiple london events in sequential months

That was exactly our concern too - that Exeter would be in sequential months with Bristol.

In that sense October would be ideal for Exeter (running anything in the SW in the summer months is a Complete non-starter). I will speak to the guys next tues about where we are with enquires.
