Right, I've asked among my lot and they're being useless. :evil:
Only Moodygit is prepared to be on the "admin team" as a spare player, so I'm going to put out an open plea.

Is there anyone (or any two!) who'd be prepared to help out with admin/rules questions/general cat-herding and potentially play if there was an odd-number?

If I can't get a spare team together (I'll be #3 if need be) then I won't be running the P'n'M as a team event, though I'll probably run it as a singles again. Would be the 5th/6th or 12th/13th (waiting to hear from the hall people).

If it is the 5 & 6th then I will be potentially up for it, I have been known two play two games at once also at multiple tournaments :)

Pick N Mix is one of my favourite all time tourneys as you actually get to play/face a variety of races rather than all the usual.

Whilst I'd like to help, I'm next to useless. But please run this again. Pretty please!

I'd rather play, but I could be the spare/admin monkey if needed. So put me on an admin/spare reserve list :)
I can still find 3 other Exiles to form a team.

Haven't played tournaments for long enough to remember this so don't know what it's all about, do you get sweets?

Nope, and not puppies either, no matter what Hawk tells you.

2 day tourney, you play a different race on Day 1 to Day 2. You can have (Darkson) Tier 1 & 4 teams or (Darkson) Tier 2 & 3 teams, or lower tiers combinations.

First year it was a 3 player team event, 2nd time it was singles. Both were great.

The Pick 'n' Mix was a team tournament in which each player took a different team on Day 1 and Day 2.

EDIT: Itchen beat me to it, in better words!

I've had a couple of people offer to help (for which I thank you from the bottom of my heart) so the P'n'M will probably return as a team event.

There won't be any movement for a couple of weeks as the main person I need to speak to about the hall is away but once she's back I'll firm up dates and go from there.

We definitely have one date confirmed, just waiting to hear on the other (which is my preferred date) but the P'n'M is going ahead.

Start working on your teams. ;)

Just seen this thread. I loved the Pick'n'Mix back in 2014. Not sure I'll be able to make it this year (TBC) but great to see the tournament will run again.
