Eucbowl is now Australia's NAF Major event.

Post by Moraiwe »

So I just read the August NAF meeting's minutes and saw that Eucbowl has replaced CanCon as Australia's Major event. No real argument from me, just surprised to see it done without much mention here (or did I miss it?).

It was mostly discussed behind the scenes. I hope this doesnt dissapoint the community.

It’s a move that has been a long time coming really. EucBowl has been the better attended event for many years now and many people considered it to be the big event on the Australian BB calendar.

I also think that CanCon, through no fault of its own, suffered a bit by being part of the bigger CanCon convention, often getting pushed out the way in favour of other events at the con.

Definitely true in my book. I'll be at Cancon in 2019 but I don't think I'll be playing Bloodbowl.

I'd play CanCon blood bowl without hesitation if it returned to progression... so I'm going to look for other events next year with BB as a fall back.

I'll be at Cancon again next year, I know different peeps like different things but I thought Chopper was brilliant and ran a great con this year (I missed last year).

Plus it's Barks' turn to win, it'd be unsporting of me not to give him the chance.

As a previous organiser of CanCon - I fully support and endorse the change.

When CanCon was rivalling Euc Bowl for attendance (peaking at 72 for CanCon and 74 for Euc Bowl) it was less clear cut.
