Hello all,

The NAF are proud to announce the dates of the next NAF Championship : 25th and 26th May 2013.



The event will be run in a similar way to the previous two events, but there will be one major change - the venue! This year's event will not be held at Warhammer World, but instead at the East Midlands Conference Centre just a couple of miles down the road. The NAF are extremely excited about the possibilities that this change of venue offers, and we hope to run an event that truly reflects and celebrates all aspects of the Blood Bowl tournament scene.

The rulespack is now available here : http://thenaf.net/downloads/NAFC2013.pdf

We will be updating you at regular intervals with further details.



But to answer what might be some of the more common questions :

* Coaches may use any painted and based fantasy football miniatures (or appropriate conversions) in their teams. This means that the 'GW models only' clause no longer applies.

* The event will follow similar rules to the previous two years : 1.05 million value teams with one skill given to a player of your choice before each game.

* The event will cost £50.00. This will include lunch on both Saturday and Sunday and an evening meal on Saturday, plus free gifts and of course your entry to play Blood Bowl in the event itself. Payment details to follow shortly - we will release tickets for sale at a specific date and time as in previous years.

* We have negotiated discounted rates with The Orchard Hotel next to the venue of £35.00 for a single room or £45.00 for a twin room per night. The Orchard is a 4-star hotel and this rate includes full breakfast and use of facilities (including gym). This rate is available on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. To receive this rate you must book through us no later than three months before the event. Details to follow.

* The Monday following the event (27th May) is a Bank Holiday in the UK.



If there are any further questions please respond below and if we can answer at this stage we will.



Thanks

The NAFC team.

These are the payment details from later in the thread:

Joemanji wrote:
On the positive side we have negotiated the hotel discount we were to receive and as a goodwill gesture the venue have reduced the special rate for you to £35 for a single room or £45 for a double or twin. This is for 1-3 nights, including breakfast, next to the venue in a four star De Vere hotel. It is our hope that most people stay and make this an unforgettable weekend.

So without further ado we can announce that we will accept payment for the event starting from Saturday 1st December 2012 at 9am UK time. Payment of £50.00 should be sent via PayPal to the account thenafchampionship@gmail.com.

If you wish to take advantage of the rates we have negotiated with the venue's hotel you will need to book rooms with them directly. Please speak to them regarding any special requirements you may have, e.g. wheelchair access, double beds. Please remember that the discounted rate is only available up to 3 months before the event. To be eligible for the discounted rates you will need a code. We will release this code to anyone who purchases a ticket.

The first 100 people to pay will be entered into an 'Early Bird Prize Draw'. One lucky entrant will be chosen at random to receive a bundle of Blood Bowl goodies (full details to follow very shortly).

woop looking forward to this! As an added bonus, as not in WW we should see vendors bringing some stock to sell openly. Which will be a lovely change from illicit carboot sales!

Good stuff. In spite of living less than 2 miles away I've never been to EMCC - will be a good chance to check out the facilities.
