There's seems to be very little mention of this event on BGG. Anyone going to this?

My guess is that since so much of CanCon is game specific tournements that the players are all dealing thru their main game sites. I am going indeed! I will be playing in the Blood Bowl tourney...and as such most of our communication about the event is thru the commishs webpage or the NAF forums...and of course over at FUMBBL. So I am not surprised there is little talk here.

But I for one will see you there!

Scott Berry is running Blood Bowl at our club this year and is keen to play in a NAF event. Border Games has just agreed to offer a 'Scholarship' for one young gamer from our club to help them attend a major event somewhere in the country. Scott will be benefiting from that Scholarship this year.

Dennis Bodman is also likely to play. He won the Carcassonne Championships at the Games Expo and played in the Worlds at Essen in 2007.

Whilst I would love to play too I have to mingle a little more and won't have the time. So I'll stick to the board games (I'm getting a NAF membership though).

Yeah CANCON was excellent this year. I picked up Commands & Colours: Ancients, Twilight Struggle and Freya's Folly (prize).

Scott came 10th in Blood Bowl and picked up the encouragement award.

Our club won best supported club too for our shirts (not taking them off for 3 days). Sometimes you have to smell to win .

Scott was an excellent player! I didn't get to play him...but sat next to one of his games. Great attitude and most fun! I look forward to opposing him one day.
