RemarkaBowl 3rd/4th September 2016 - Queenstown

Post by smeborg »

Dear All -

As you may be aware, Queenstown, tourist capital of the South Island (aka The Mainland), has everything. Mountains, lakes, rivers, sun, snow, fly-fishing, tramping, skiing, vinyards, bungy jumping, jet-boating, partying, the list goes on. Well, almost everything. There is no Blood Bowl. That is about to change with the inaugural RemarkaBowl. Please note these dates:

27th/28th August 2016 - AusBowl Team Champs, Christchurch

3rd/4th September - RemarkaBowl, Queenstown

10th/11th September - Greenstone Cup, Auckland

The date has been chosen especially for those visitors from afar, such as those from the West Island, who may be contemplating a bit of skiing with their trip to the AusBowl State Champs and/or the Greenstone Cup.

The format of the tournament will be decided nearer the time, taking into account the number of participants and their desires/requirements. It is intended as a light-hearted and sociable tournament, but still with regular play.

The venue will be smeborg's mountain hideaway in Queenstown.

Would those wishing to take part pleas PM me, giving their e-mail address.

All the best.

Will be a 110 TV ruleset.

Not NAF registered.

I will bring many spare teams for anyone who wants to borrow.

I will finalise the ruleset shortly.

All the best

Ditto - if its crazy rules and non-sanctionable thats fine, but if it can be sanctioned lets do it. The short notice wont be a problem.

Dear All -

I apologise for not visiting the forum recently, I have been distracted by things unrelated to Blood Bowl.

RemarkaBowl is very much on. Venue: 3 Alta Place, Frankton, Queenstown (very close to the airport). My e-mail is pauldeacon AT xtra DOT co DOT nz. My mobile is 022 four-five-three 8117. My Queenstown landline is (03) four-two-two 2087.

Saturday 3rd September: 10:00 for first game at 10:30. Second game at 1:30. Third game at 4:00 followed by retirement to a suitable hostelry.

Sunday 10th September: 4th game at 10:30. Second game at 1:30. Fourth game at 4:00.

Format: Same rules (team composition) as the Greeenstone Cup(110 TV) on the following weekend in Auckland. One new rule: any coach winning a Team Re-roll on the Kick-off Table may instead elect to take a Bribe. Points: 2 for a win, 1 for a draw, 0 for a loss. Tie-break: total points of all opponents, then head-to-head (if possible), then net TDs, then net CAS, then total TDs, then total CAS. If still undecided, coaches are tied.

It was my intention for the tournament not to be NAF registered, but by popular demand, I will pop the question.

Hope that's all clear, my apologies again for the delay.

Paul

Thankyou Paul. I will have to duck away to the airport to pick up my son in the afternoon on Sunday. Hopefully it doesn't disrupt too much

Rabid, we will bend the schedule to accommodate you. Note that my place is 2 or 3 minutes drive from the airport.

No fee for the tournament (there are no venue hire fees).

The tourney has been approved by the NAF.

2 minor extra rules:

(a) Dice - players must share dice unless both agree not to do so.

(b) Painting - will be at the discretion of the TD (it looks like someone will borrow a team from me which is largely but not entirely painted, that's fine by me).

All the best

Paul

SOCIAL MATTERS:

FRIDAY NIGHT: Since we are a small number, I propose a fish dinner at my place (the tourney venue), since there is a good fishmonger in Frankton and I love to cook fish. Steak for Creature. Come for 6:00 p.m. This also simplifies life for the travelling Oz coaches who are driving to Queenstown on Friday itself.

SATURDAY NIGHT: I propose we retire to a hostelry in Queenstown, Smith's craft beer house by name. It is well liked by the disc golf crowd, and the grub is good and plentiful.

Hope that suits.

All the best

Paul
