Bridie Bowl, 21st March 2015

How much is it?

Entry to Bridie Bowl will be £12, which includes your lunch of a Forfar Bridie and a canned drink. A £5 deposit will be required before the date to cover the cost of ordering bridies, and the remaining fee will be collected on the day. Please send deposits, or if you wish to pay the full amount, to PayPal on craigoffilth@hotmail.com along with your full name. Could this please be sent as a Gift to avoid PayPal fees. For anyone cancelling or unable to attend on the day, full refunds can be made until orders for food are placed, after which up to £9 can be made. If you wish to join NAF on the day, registration will be £5. Any queries can be sent to our club's Facebook page or emailed to the above address.

Where is it being held?

Bridie Bowl will be held at the Webster Memorial Theatre in Arbroath. Arbroath is located on the east coast of Angus approximately 15 miles north east of Dundee, on the A92. There is ample parking locally, all of which is free. For anyone not driving up, the town is on the mainline rail network between Glasgow/Edinburgh and Aberdeen, and the railway station is only a short walk away from the venue. If you feel compelled, you can also get there by boat, but that will depend heavily on the tides. Directions to The Webster Theatre can be found here.

What will you need to bring?

Your painted Blood Bowl team.
Two copies of your team roster.
Dice (blocking dice, D6’s, D8).
Templates (passing, scatter etc.)
Blood Bowl game board.
Your remaining entry fee (if applicable).

Tournament Rules:

Skill Advancement:

4 normal skills and 2 double skills can be given to players on your team; all before the first match. No player can be allocated more than one skill and no more than 2 copies of any skill can be taken. Double skills can be exchanged for normal skills if you wish.

Games:

There will be 3 games on the day. The first match will be drawn at random. Thereafter, each match will be according to the Swiss system.

Was tempted by this as I am on a training course in Fife from 18th to 20th March and then 23rd to 27th March but doubt I would get the brownie points not to come home at the weekend in between!

If there are any Scots who want a bit of pre tournament practice before or a friendly the week after and are near fife let me know, I'm sure I can pack a team!

Peo, it is only a 1 day tournament. Come down to mine in Edinburgh on the 20th and we will look after you (although if you start dancing we may not have to). Back up to Arbroath on the 21st for the tournie, train home that evening. 21st to 23rd at home and then back up to Fife. Simples!

Floated idea with my wife who kindly reminded me that I have to see my family on the 21st and sort out bridesmaid dresses for my daughters (oh yes my life is soooo pink) so alas it's not simples...

Offer of friendly games still stands though!

Peo,

The nearest Blood Bowl club to Kincardine is the Stirling Wargamers and their email contact address is info@stirling-wargamers.org.uk alternatively if you can be bothered schlepping into Edinburgh then the Edinburgh League of Gamers http://www.edinburghleagueofgamers.co.uk/ meets on a Wednesday night and I would be delighted to give you a game there. Lastly you can post on the Team Scotland Blood Bowl site http://team-scotland.freeforums.net/ and maybe pick up a game there.

Cheers
