The Albion Coast Cup is back and in its lucky thirteenth installment of mayhem in Southampton!

PLEASE NOTE THE UNUSUAL DATE FOR THE ACC. THIS IS SO IT DOESNT CLASH WITH MY 40TH BIRTHDAY WHEN I WILL LIKELY BE OUT OF THE COUNTRY/CELBRATING.

We have a wonderful venue now, much better I think than any we've had in the past. Once again we will be at The Hilt, in Chandler's Ford.


Anyway the address is below, the website is http://www.thehilt.org.uk/

IF you are coming by train locally there is a station at Chandlers Ford which might be 10-15 minutes walk away
IF you are coming by train less locally Southampton Airport Parkway or Eastleigh railway station might be a better bet than Southampton Central. We can try and sort you out a lift either way, let me know asap if this is you.

There is car parking by the tennis courts, or by the Sports Pavillion just along from our venue. It is first come first served but there should be two or three times more than we need.

IF you are coming by car southbound on the M3 you will want to leave the M3 at Jct 12, any queries let me know the junction is a bit weird but not too weird.

If you usually come in via the M27 you will need to head north on the M3 to JCT 12 as above

If you are coming from Southampton (as you might be Sunday morning for example) I can provide step by step instructions if you don't have sat nav etc.

There's a couple of small local shops 5 minutes walk away, we will provide tea and coffee all day both days, there is full disabled access and toilet, the room is on the ground floor, and last but by no means least. You can bring your own drinks INCLUDING alcohol! Crumbs!



The Hilt, Hiltingbury Recreation Ground
Hiltingbury Road, Chandler's Ford
Hampshire SO53 5NP

The Albion Coast Cup is a tournament like no other. Rich in history the ACC has run for over a decade now and for the seventh year we are proud to present the UK's only progression tournament. As a progression tournament the ACC is still NAF-ranked but each coach has a team to develop and build rather than a fixed roster of ever-living players.

This also usually constitutes a round of the South West Tournament Championship.



Remember that this is a little different to other tournaments so here's the detail:

The tournament will be run according to the new rules!! with the following exceptions, amendments and clarifications:
Starting Treasury: 1,050,000
Slann, Underworld, Chaos Pact rosters included.
No Inducements may be purchased as part of your starting roster.

All Inducements allowed (excluding Special Play Cards) and are to be chosen at the start of each game. Petty Cash may be used for Inducements.
SPPs are earned according to the rulebook with the exception of the MVP which is chosen rather than awarded to a random player.
All skill rolls must be made immediately after the game in the presence of your opponent (+stats and doubles are allowed).
All purchases, journeymen, and skills must be selected after each game and before the start of the next round.
Any Ogre teams will be allowed to allocate ONE extra MVP to a player of their choice prior to the first game.
Remember especially the Petty Cash rules, which could be relevant at any point.

We will NOT be using Expensive Mistakes.
We will NOT be using the Weeping Daggers Skill
Piling On will work as it previously did
Wizards are an acceptable inducement.
Grak and Crumbleberry are NOT included in the list of eligible Star Players.


Any supllemental product/rules released by GW between now and the tournament will be ineligible unless The NAF has made a firm ruling on it.

Points will be awarded as follows:
Win: 2 Points
Draw: 1 Point
Loss: 0 Points


Each round will be drawn according to the Swiss format with no reference to TDs, CAS or TV
If two or more coaches are tied for first place at the end of the final game (or indeed any places) then head to head will be the first tie-breaker, then opponent score will be used to find final placings.

It is expected that you will be able to provide appropriate miniatures for any stars that you may induce (or at least proxies that distinguish them from regular team members)
It would be sensible to ensure you bring a good number of skill rings.
Starting Rosters will be required in advance of The ACC so that provision can be made for efficient printing of updated rosters in between rounds.
These should be emailed to robincaddy@hotmail.com as either excel files or just typed out clearly.

Venue, costs, and stuff...

£25 including food both lunch times
paypal to robincaddy@hotmail.com
you pay any fees applicable

Hopefully we will be able to go to our now regular BBQ place in the evening

Going to limit this to 30 people, and stick to the usual room. Maybe aiming higher for next year.

Thanks for reading, I do hope that some of you who find it difficult to come on the usual August Bank Holiday weekend will find this weekend doable
Cheers

Date noted.
This means this event won't be the penultimate round in the SWTC, though it is still part of it :)

Suspect I'll be there :)

we had 34 in there last year and space for food, it was tight tho and we played in long lines of table rather than spread out as this year.

if i know more than 30 are coming i would want to use one of the two halls. however they are quite a bit more expensive iirc and so i cant book them and make it work on say 20-25 players.

Looks very possible, assuming the rota doesn't change (not planned).
But Moodygit on the interested list as well please.

im going to work out an early bird price for this, and if enough sign up for it will ask about "upgrading" to the bigger hall, but as mentioned elsewhere, it more than doubles the costs for the venue, hence need to know its not gonna turn in to a massive loss making idea
