Waacybowl has been run and won, done and dusted. The preparation over the last few months has all been worth it. 30 coaches signed up and we sold out 1 month prior to the date. With drop outs commencing on the week before, we still managed to fill up our places and still had 29 Coaches on the Thursday before the event. We had 6 drop outs in that 48 hours and it depleted our numbers down to 23 Coaches. Leaving an odd number, Bishop (Mark) took one for the team and pulled out to leave even numbers, meaning I did not have to play. Playing and Running a Tourney just doesnít happen.
I arrived early with Mark and Leigh not far behind, we set up the table and started getting things organised for an on-time start. With the majority of players arriving between 8:30 and 8:45am, draw was done and we got the first games underway!
I hadnít even had a chance to say Hi to alot of the guys, including Virral who had travelled down from Sydney and was bringing me my brand spanking new Custom Board!
The main part of the day was a bit of a blur, things seemed to go extremely efficiently with players taking the 4 minute turn time schedule seriously. There was only 1 instance, maybe 2, where I was forced to call time, before the game had finished. In future however, serial time waters will be forced to 4minutes turns with turnovers if they cannot abide the time limits like everyone else manged. I know of at least 1 game where one player was rushing his turns so he could finish ontime, while the other went about his turns with disregard for time.
1st big kudos goes to the (majority) players for maintaining the tight schedule.
Awards ceremony was underway by 6:35pm, with Kyle Harper taking out the Tournament with his Orcs, 4 wins from 4 games. Anything but a loss for him in the last game would seal it for him. Dave Maurer would just about have stolen the title form him, if he had managed a win. Runners up went to John Chapman and his Skaven, John won 3 games and drew 1, but his time management skills were maybe not all that upto scratch Razz !! Virral took out 3rd place with his Norse team, which was closely contested, with 2 wins 2 draws.
The sportsmanship award, which was decided by player vote, was unanimously won by Andrew Godde, and he was awarded the first WAACYbowl MVP Award.
Best painted, was awarded to Luke Houston and his nicely painted Lizardmen, Luke is reknown for his great painting skills throughout the 40k community.
A mention also has to be made here for Aspie and Virralís Custom Pitches, both are fantastic pieces of work, and worthy of a best of award, sadly we didnít give enough recognition and we will include an award next year as a Players Choice award for Best Team/Board.
With a 1 prize per player policy for the Tournament, Brad Furhmann won Most Casualties, with 11 Cas, Luke Houston topped the table with 14, and Kyle and Ed Brgoc on 11 also. Brad finished 5th overall and he was handed the Award.
Tristrim Murnane won most TDs with his Human team, scoring 12 TDs overall, with 6 coming form 1 game.
David Asp won the Encouragement award for finishing last with his Slaan.
2 Door Prizes were given away for Promotion of the Bloktoberfest Tourney coming up in October. Luke Houton won the Open ticket and Simon Tonkin won the (Non Prize) winner ticket. Hopefully they will both be there to utilise them and support the MBBL crew for their Big Tourney!
For more information on Bloktoberfest contact JoeKano or ksharper on these forums.
In the end we all walked out before 7pm, which was our deadline.
Thanks goes to Our Sponsors.
South Melbourne Optical
CNC Minature Scenery
Without these guys it makes it really hard to put on a great Tourney. I urge you all to support them as they have supported us.
Apologies must go to Aspie for not handing out his $100 off Glasses coupons, from South Melbourne Optical. If anyone needs glasses, please give him a call, Iím sure he will be able to help you out!!
Thanks also to Leigh Averyís Sister for the Artwork on Certificates and Trophies. It was worth all of the Meatball foot-long Sub Razz
Thanks also goes to doubleskulls for his Tournament Manager Software, and for allowing us to use the Eucbowl Format.
Last but not least my fellow WAACY crew for all their support and input throughout the lead-up to WAACYbowl. Specifically Mark (Bishop) for his PR work with sponsors, and for sacrificing his day of Bloodbowl to help out behind the desk so Ididnít have to play or support a bye. Leigh for setting up the Account for Pre-registration and sorting out the Trophies and Certificates. Dave for all his support and sagely advice.
We hope to see you all back next year.
Watch out for the exclusive WAACYbowl miniature TBA.
Cheers and Thanks
