My apologies for not attending this year, I'm committed to helping and playing in an Infinity doubles competition at my local club.

Next year!

Plenty of pics please.

After an insanely busy week (taking a day off work at the moment meant cramming five days into four), the ragtag Ysian host leaves in about 15 minutes for the trip down to Coventry. We'll be hitting our lodgings just a few miles from Bedworth early this afto and spending time tomorrow at Warwick castle. It's great when you can plan some family time around a hobby event! Sees youse guys Sunday then!

I'll take plenty of pics Arthur and also bring back some valuables - knowledge!

Thank you so much Jon for organising a brilliant event and making those whopping northern sarnies!! Sorry I couldn't make it until later on in the day. Thank you to everyone who played. You certainly looked like you all had a great day! Joanna :)

Hey Joanna, it was lovely to meet you and thanks for the refreshments (my god how hot was that room!? Awesome to have such good weather though). Pity you couldn't make it earlier, we could have had a real battle and show the noobs how the game should be played, huh ;_) But I'm glad you could and would like to repeat the thanks for being a star on the Facebook page. Looking forward to seeing the new vids too, crack on with that editing!

Great day all! Thanks Jonathon for the organisation. Not forgetting the time you spent checking the lists and such. Lots of hard work. The time flew by and everyone enjoyed. Thanks to all you players for making me feel very welcome and for answering all my questions and putting up with a total hoob, it was great to meet you. If luck had been with me I'd have had you for dinner. By the nine teats of Torku, I rolled shockingly all day. Lol. Still had awesome fun and will certainly be coming to the next one. With better dice.

Here's some of my pics. Too busy at the time for notemaking or taking more that were in focus, but got a head-full of experience now and looking forward to playing more Darklands games that will be so much better now. Well, Maybe we'll get to Hour TWO next time :)

Cheers to all my opponents (except that Chester guy with the stupid dragon).

The guys on the left literally stomp upon the flag of surrender. OK, it's snow. A fitting surface to bear their ice-cold hearts.

Now THAT'S a bloody big sheep tick. Pest control in action here.

Thank you all for your kind words all it is good to see the event expand from last year, all the players enjoying themselves gaining more working knowledge of the rules, and hopefully we can get more next year. If you need partner points just ask Geoff how to do it!

I’m going to let the dust settle before I start planning for next year but I’ll be looking at mid to late June again so keep the diaries free. I’ll take advice on board not to organise on a day England are playing!

My initial plans for next year will be a similar format gold limit may move up or down a little bit, scenarios may be written up and will be at the same venue.

Get saving for that flight!

This looks like it was such a blast, I'll have to get my stuff ready for next time.
