Good morning/afternoon/evening all. We hope you, your friends, and families all remain well in these trying times.
Sadly we have to inform that we've been forced to cancel Bounding Fire Blackpool 2020. Covid, finally, has defeated us. We tried to hold out to the final turn but those plucky broken half squads in the final victory building were eventually overcome and resistance came to an end.
However, all is not lost. Thanks to the miracle of modern technology we will move the tournament, for this year only (hopefully) to VASL. We will be running a full tournament schedule incorporating 'Friendlies/Fly' on the Wednesday and throughout the long weekend, 'Minis on the Thursday (19th) and the main tournament on Friday through Sunday. There will be the usual range of prizes available throughout the weekend.
All will be explained farther down the line in regard to the full schedule. We'll issue full detail on format and rules in a few weeks.
We're happy to open the tournament up to overseas attendance but please bear in mind the following:
- All elements of the tournament will run through VASL and Skype. Please ensure you are comfortable with both systems. Of course, alternates to Skype can be used with both players' agreement but VASL+Skype is the standard.
- The tournament is pretty intensive (you'd expect that given that this tournament was formerly 'Intensive Fire'. Scenarios in the 'minis' are morning/afternoon. The main tournament is played over three days with five scenarios, Friday am/pm, Saturday am/pm, and Sunday. This is war...
- Timings are based on GMT start times of 9am/2pm (ish). Please bear this in mind if registering your attendance.
- Entry is £15. This covers entry to the minis and/or the main tournament.
I hope this has piqued your interest. If so, please register your attendance, by emailing me at this address only (boundingfirstfire@gmail,com). Further detail will follow next month.
All the best and see you hopefully soon (albeit not in person).
