Steve,

We should also have Jerry and John from the Northern wastes.
They will be getting tickets soon.
(because what anyone playing a 4k game wants is a draw with orkyosarus...)

You are all crazy for attending this. Expect 1,000 yard stares to become a regular feature of this event.

We have had a pleasing rush in ticket sales since you announced you weren't coming. Coincidence?

It's really not that bad, and you also get plenty of time for games. If anything playing time has actually dropped over the last few years as people are getting their games finished quicker. It's also the only tournament of the year where you can really bring the big toys along :)

Totally agreed Richard. As you are not going home on Friday night and Saturday night, game times can be a little less rigorous so even slow coaches like me can enjoy a more relaxed game.
Curiously, the extra 1K points does not usually add greatly to the game time, and it is not unusual for games to end after 2 hours or less.
Also, 4000 points gives a bit more flexibility allowing players to bring out the big toys or to use more options with formations. And some races work better at 4K than at 3K.
Sadly I won’t be there this year. :(

Eight players signed up, but plenty of space for more.

If you are thinking of going can you get your ticket ASAP. The BHGS have more traders than previous years so room planning/space is going to be more of an issue this time around... we may not get the fire escape area this year!

Anyone driving up past Bristol way for it? Happy to liftshare and contribute petrol if so.

@Steve54 You aren't on the list of ticket holders the BHGS sent me last week?

Gerry is booked.
John Cole is a waste of space (aa you may have noted....) I have no idea if he is making this weekends pint and football, - he has promised to attend, but he has also promised to pay back his debts and start showering weekly...
Will chase him.
