Thanks for the offer Marc, albeit that there's fat chance of any spare time for me on Saturday and Sunday!

I might bring some anyway - in case of any quick games ...

One of the joys of organising a large event is juggling the numbers for the weekend. I think that I may have set a new personal record this time, with 9 competitions of which 6 have odd numbers!

Two self-balance as we have a floater already. However, the other four are FOG R, DBMM, FOW (early War) and Bolt Action. I never want anyone to feel pressured to move out of their first choice event, but if there is anyone out there who would be willing to move, could you let me know?

Thanks,

Tim

The results are now published on the BHGS site. Congratulations to Alasdair for an emphatic win and thanks to everyone for making the event very easy to umpire.

Thanks also to Ben, Bob A, Richard, Paddy and Dave for fun games.

We are pleased to report that The BHGS Challenge 2014 appears to have been somewhat of a resounding success!

The results are now published on our site at http://www.bhgs.org.uk/challenge-2014-results.html , but to give you a flavour there were some notable highlights too, with 50% more players than 2013 and a number of landmarks as well, including:

9 themes, including Bolt Action, DBM and Epic all new/returned after long absence (and Saga in its second year)

Loads of entries - 128 players, including umpires, with increased numbers in all periods

Plenty of "buzz" in the main hall

David Fairhurst leading the FOW on Saturday night, despite playing an army picked up from scratch and not having played FOW for nearly 2 years

Darrell Pearce going one better and winning the DBM overall despite not having played it at all for 2 years

The help we had setting up the tables on Friday and taking them down/tidying up on Sunday night - would have been impossible for the Challenge team of David and Tim, but there were loads of guys there to help, in particular the members of Oxford and the Trunkies, Ian Mackay, Colin, Gary and Dave Redhead and Bob Medcraft and Ray Briggs

So, all in all a great weekend.

We look forward to seeing you all again at Roll Call in June !
