Thanks to Pippy for being head bloke and top bottle washer.

Thanks to Simon and Frank for reffing, taking the piss, pasties in the rain and TMI.

Thanks to Simon (?) from H.A.T.E., the geordie Fumbbl player who's name I can't remember (mike?), Glowworm, Woody, Schmee and Lunchmoney for graciously putting up with my increasing frustration with all things Ogre...especially Woody for turning up for day 2 half-cut and Schmee and LM for having ridiculous but fun rosters.

HUGE Thanks to Dries, Xod and mrs. Xod for getting me there and back.

Thanks to everyone I met and shared beer and silly games with.

Thanks to everyone I didn't mention above for an absolutely fantastic atmosphere.

Thanks to Jervis for showing up for the tournament and showing that someone at GW still gives a damn about us.

And of course congrats to Beppe, and the other winners.

yep, many thanks to those who put in the long hours it must have taken to put together and run such a fantastic event. And of course to all there, who smiled their way through the best of times and the worst of times. Roll on next year.

Big thanks to everyone involved in the set up and running of the tournament i thought it was brilliantly done, especially the non playing guys hats off to you. So pleased to have the blood bowl as it should be rather than what has come before. The general atmosphere was superb all 6 of my opponents were gracious in victory or defeat, well except maybe Bsking :wink: who took far to much pleasure from my unfortunate rolls.
Met lots of new people and caught up with a few old friends, and so many others i didnt get chance to talk to.

Thanks for the classy coin and the free drink :) and i hope to be back next year.

Well done to all the winners, and special mention to the best painting award, i thought the standard of nominations was so high some fantastic paintjobs and mind blowing conversions i hope someone got some decent pics, i really couldnt decide which was best.

I have one person to thank (with all the "typical English understatement" I can muster).

What Pippy said, with the additional:

*Pippy, for being the overall superstar


Looking forward to playing next year - look for me in mid-table mediocrity (if I have a good weekend!).

What a wonderful weekend!!! I have to thank my 6 opponents for the nice matches we played. I'd like also to thank Bren and all the staff involved with the organization: you did a magnificent job :wink: Finally I have to thank my good luck (expecially against Pigstar and Lycos) without whom i couldn't win the tournament...
Next year I'll be there again :D

A big thanks to pippy, Simon, Frank and everyone who made this weekend happen, i had a great time.

It was my 1st time playing with Skaven and i have to admit that i enjoyed playing with them. End result was 3-1-2, not bad when i only had 2 games with them before the tournament. Thanks to everyone i played for a great 6 games. Thank to Thadrin for making me smile with his screams of fustration as he got beat by everyone. Thanks to Matt, Ruby and Tony for a great birthday night out on friday. Thanks to the guys for the awesome coin.

Thanks to everyone for a great weekend over all. :D

I'm sure this goes for a lot of first-timers or relatively new guys, but thanks to everyone who's TFF/NAF/Twitter name I knew, but not their face or real name!

Thanks, in no particular order go to:

Pippy, for being the Whole F'n'Show
Pippys many helpers for running a great weekend.
Stick and company for the lift and chatter.
Scally09 for the company and beer money.
ArmyDave and Lunchmoney for getting me wrecked on Friday and being all round good chaps - see you at Exiles.
Frank....cos liers dice had me drunkenly shouting profitterolls and I'm still not sure why.
Arthur Inkpwn for the absolutely mad game vs. his undead.
Ticket number 126 (I suck at names) for taking me to a bitchin' 1-1 draw with his gorgeous lizards team.
...and....the guy whose name has totally passed me buy, playing Lizards, who we spent most of our lunches with that I talked programming with for the entire weekend.

Good stuff.

I will see folks at Exiles, if I don't see any of you before.

I'd also like to thank Firebreather for trying to start a fight with a random drunk in the White Hart car park
And Fernando Torres for showing up all weekend (though how he managed to get back to Old trafford for the cameo appearence without anyone seeing him go...)

:wink:


Memories - thank you one and all...
