Hello all,

I will be updating this thread and the one on the NAF forum rather than each thread on specific forums. You can find it here : http://member.thenaf.net/index.php?name ... 1537#91537

We are happy to announce the dates for the 2014 NAF Championship as the 17th and 18th of May 2014. The event will again be held at the East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham.



The rules pack can be found here : http://www.thenaf.net/downloads/NAFC2014.pdf

But to answer what might be some of the more common questions :

* Coaches may use any painted and based fantasy football miniatures (or appropriate conversions) in their teams. This means that the 'GW models only' clause no longer applies.

* The event will be using new rules this year. Teams will be TV110, with 3 skills before game one, and 3 skills (one of which may be a double) before game four. All skills must be chosen before the tournament and printed on your roster.

* The event will cost £55.00. This will include lunch on both Saturday and Sunday and an evening meal on Saturday, plus free gifts and of course your entry to play Blood Bowl in the event itself. Payment should be sent to theNAFChampionship@gmail.com. If you can avoid fees please do so.

* We have negotiated discounted rates with The Orchard Hotel next to the venue of £40.00 for a single room or £50.00 for a twin room per night. The Orchard is a 4-star hotel and this rate includes full breakfast and use of facilities (including gym). This rate is available on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. To receive this rate you must book no later than three months before the event. Booking requires a code that will be sent to you after you purchase a ticket for the event.

Rooms are more limited this year (especially on the Sunday) so we recommend that you get sorted as early as possible. We would also ask that you buddy up and share a twin room if you can, as our quota is on rooms not people staying, and we can fit more people in this way.



We are again asking for coaches to send us their rosters in advance of the NAF Championship to speed up the process of registration on the Saturday morning. There is no pressure to do this immediately so please take as much time as you want to deliberate over every fiendish roster decision! But the more of these we get, the faster the queue will move come the day.

Please send your roster to NAFC.rosters@gmail.com. You may not necessarily receive a response, but please accept our silent thanks. Everyone will still need to bring two printed copies of their roster on the day.



If there are any further questions please respond in the NAF forum thread and if we can answer at this stage we will.

The 2013 event seemed to be a resounding success, and the venue went down a storm, so we hope to see loads of you there again in 2014!

Thanks
Joe

Are we going to get a deal on the hotel again?

Yes. But we don't have quite so many rooms so it will be twins / doubles only. Also remember we got two discounts last year (an extra one for them moving the dates) so it will slightly more expensive than 2013. But still a great deal on an otherwise expensive hotel.

Within the week I'd imagine. We are aiming to open ticket sales on 1st December but it all depends on final negotiations with the venue.

Any news when tickets will be available.

I am looking forward for this event and I also support the change of TV. I think after some years of the same ruleset a change should be made :)

Sorry for some very newb questions - I am planning to be in London around that time from Australia.

Is it easy enough to travel back to London in the evening on the Sunday? I might take the monday off to get to Warhammer world...

Planning to book everything tonight :)

Getting back to London will be very easy - under a 2 hour train journey. I live in London so will be doing that exact journey myself.

Are you travelling by yourself? If you put a call out, I would imagine there would be someone travelling back to London on the Sunday night with space in the car, though you wouldn't be able to book it tonight!

Otherwise, it is usually wrapped up by 7 at the latest, if you are looking for public transport options.
