GGUK is back for the 2016/17 UK Blood Bowl Season…

Besters (right) takes the GGUK trophy for the 2016/17 Season (presented in April at NAFC)

See NAF information about Tournament Series here.

All UK NAF coaches are eligible to score GGUK points at every UK NAF tournament which qualifies to award a NAF trophy as per NAF guidelines.

From the 2017 updated sanctioning guidelines:
NAF Trophies may be awarded to the winner of any sanctioned tournament so long as it meets minimum attendance requirement... [if it has] 4 rounds or more, 12 coaches are required; if it has 3 rounds or fewer, 24 coaches are required.

In addition, a set of ten established and well attended tournaments will award double points in all categories. These ten tournaments are the Classics.

Nine of the Classics are a fixed set of well-established and well attended events, distributed around the UK to represent the different tournament playing regions. These are divided as follows: three southern English, three northern English, one English midlands, one Welsh and one Scottish. In addition, the 10th Classic is a Wildcard, typically a smaller tournament chosen by consensus each year by the NAF Tournament Coordinators group (Hawca, Purdindas, Don_Vito, Lunchmoney).

The GGUK Classics are as follows...

Southern England:
-Albion Coast Cup
-Gert Bowl
-Thrudball


English Midlands:
-The NAF Championship

Northern England:
-Monkeybowl
-UK Team Challenge
-Waterbowl


Scotland:
-Burger Bowl

Wales:
-Welsh Open

2016/17 Wildcard:
-Exiles VIII

Points scoring is cumulative; there is no limit to the number of tournaments coaches can score in. The intention is to award pure gaming results but also other aspects of the wider hobby which are traditionally recognised at tournaments, as follows:

-1st place 25 pts
-2nd place 18 pts
-3rd place 15 pts
-4th place 12 pts
-5th place 10 pts
-6th place 8 pts
-7th place 6 pts
-8th place 4 pts
-9th place 2 pts
-10th place 1 pt
-Best Painted Team or Stunty Cup win 10 pts
-Most Touchdowns or Most Casualties win 5 pts
-All scores in all categories at a Classic tournament are doubled

In the event of a tie, the coach with the highest tournament placing(s) will be placed highest e.g. a player with Best Painted and third place (10+15) will be placed lower than one with First Place only (25).

A few footnotes on the additional trophies:

-I’d like to recommend that all tournaments recognise Best Painted, Stunty Cup, Most Touchdowns and Most Casualties in some way. No prize, trophy or certificate is necessary. Even if it’s no more than lip service here on TFF.

-Coaches who placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd but were also awarded Most Touchdowns and/or Most Casualties will only score GGUK points for their tournament placing.

-A coach who wins Best Painted Team at separate tournaments with the same team can only score once e.g. the highest score of the two as appropriate


GGUK 2016/17 starts with the Auld World Masters on May 14th 2016 and will end at NAFC 2017 (dates tba).

The highest points scorer at the end of the year will be awarded the Golden Gauntlet trophy at NAFC 2017.

Thanks Graham :) Hopefully NOBTOS will rise again. GGUK will be back for sure.

Some stats….

30 GGUK qualified tournaments last year:
-1 Welsh
-3 Scottish
-26 English (of which 5 could reasonably be described as northern – York, Manchester, Stockport, Hartlepool, Newcastle)

Ochil Bowl will surely feature next year, now it’s a 2-dayer. Looking forward to that.

With the demise of NBS and only 1 Scottish Tournament this year in GGUK, I think the Scottish Blood Bowl coaches are getting the message ;)

Any tournament is eligible as long as it is a NAF trophy awarding event.

So no discrimination. Reflects the tournament activity in each of our regions.

And there is of course a permanent Scottish Classic in Burger Bowl.

Maverick (3rd and Stunty Cup = 15+10) and Dionysian (Winner = 25) are early leaders after Auld World Masters...

Will update the list in next few weeks when a few more tourneys are on the board.

Admins - could you please unsticky GGUK 15/16 and sticky this one instead?

Updated after Foul Bowl.

Hawca takes the lead from Glowworm and 20phoenix!

I'm awaiting confirmation on who won the most cas and most TD awards. Listed as tied by frogboy, however wouldn't be able to add scores here unless an outright winner declared.

Cheers!
