Would it be possible for the skill selection rules to be as similar to the EuroBowl as possible.

Thanks, HumptyTrump

Ralph- we are aware of that school of thought for rule sets, and are balancing the longer competitive view with a ensuring a great experience for everybody who is attending. You'll have a great time I promise!

Unless you play dwarves. Never play dwarves... ;-)

Pipey - if you (and any other Geordies) are able to make it up then reciprocal hosting is of course on offer. I'll speak to you at UKTC.

Love to have you DonVito! Again - hospitality for Geordies is on offer since you've always looked after the Scots so well when we come down... Just need to bribe the wife suitably to be elsewhere ;-)
