Hi all,

Just been pondering with the idea of a 40k straight knock-out tournament ?

Obviously up to committee  and suitable interest and I realize that there is already an existing tag-team event running but........

The initial proposal is as follows:

1 v 1 elimination
1750pts lists Battle Forged Only
Static Army Lists for event (perhaps Secretary would act as SPOC for gathering lists ?)
Limit of 16 or 24 players depending on level of interest (suggest that 15 minimum with one bye available and that more than 16 must reach 24 (or 23 plus bye) or its screws up the tree)
Rounds played 1 week per month (any week available in month to maintain flexibility)
Entry fee £3 per player (not reduced depending on Membership status) and the entry fee total be split 60%-40% between 1st Place and Club Treasurer (not personally !) This would mean that in a 16 person event the winner would receive roughly £29 which would pretty much buy a boxed set from our FLGS and the club would nett £19 towards whatever the committee decided.

Given that all of the above is subject to approval or rejection, any thoughts or takers ?

A 40k Tournament is certainly on the cards!

We're looking into a few options at the moment including hosting a all day Sunday event.  

Very Happy

Hmmm I might be up for this, as I used to tournament in my younger wilder days.

Or I would be up for helping out as I have certain ideas on how to run a tournament smoothly.  I don't like the idea of a straight knockout as that means you cant recover from a bad first game.

All day event sounds good, but you have to be very strict on your times for the games.

Pitfall of most tournaments people over running time and delaying the games.
