Recommended Posts

Event Title: BLACKOUT - Firestorm Games - 4&5th August - Pack released
Event Author: Chris Tomlin
Calendar: Events UK
Event Date: 08/04/2018 12:00 AM to 08/05/2018 12:00 AM

Good afternoon boys and girls,

Please to announce that BLACKOUT will be returning this year. Once again it will be held at the wonderful Firestorm Games in Cardiff, over the weekend of 4-5th August.

The pack is now available - YOU WILL NEED TO READ IT IN FULL THIS YEAR!!

http://traffic.libsyn.com/theblacksun/BLACKOUT_2018.pdf

Tickets are SOLD OUT - as the event is held in Firestorm you will be fed lunch both days (they have a kitchen with Chef!). Breakfast is available for additional cost direct to Firestorm (pay on the day).

Payment is to be made via PayPal as friends & family to lunatic_pandora@btinternet.com

Please note that the final date for refunds on tickets is 03/07/18.

There is plenty of space (up to 100 tickets) and I would advise looking at accommodation ASAP if interested as Cardiff can get pricey.

I look forward to seeing you all!
Chris

Awesome, be nice to see you both again. Good luck with the hotels! :S (I booked Travelodge Cardiff Central for £183 for two nights)

Gutted I can't get out of working this weekend, last year was a great time.

Anyone on the fence about going, I can't recommend it enough - Firestorm / Cardiff is a great venue, and Chris ran a really good tournament last time!

Updated the first post with pretty much all the tournament info you'll need. I will put a pack together at the start of May.

I've decided to keep a similar scoring structure to last year as it worked well I thought. The only "soft scores" will be using sports votes as first tie break again. I have introduced a penalty for non-cohesive armies.

If you love super heavy soft score events, I will be running one of these in March/April next year.

Chris

I'm in, ticket paid for... just me though. Going Han Solo! 

Not....goating Han Solo? ;) 

Great to have you on board mate. The numbers are creeping up!

Don't forget you can issue grudges, which I wholly encourage.

But I like everyone on that list... Except @Ben Johnson, that guy can do one... ;)

Pano accepted by grudge last night. Looking forward to a shouty first game.

Great, I will get that updated now. Keep the grudges coming

Also up to 60 players including @Forestreveries as spare player which means maximum rankings points!!

It's now been payday for most people so hopefully we'll see a few more sign ups as well.

Chris
