The Albion Coast Cup is back! Ring the bells and bring the maidens! (especially the maidens...)

The Albion Coast Cup is a tournament like no other. Rich in history the ACC has run for a full nine years* but, for a second year only, we are proud to present a progression tournament. As a progression tournament the ACC is still NAF-ranked but each coach has a team to develop and build rather than a fixed roster of everliving players. The ACC is the only progression tournament in the UK so, well, get it while its hot Smile

*apart from "the year that wasnt", courtesy of a Mr E. Rob.

Remember that this is a little different to other events so please take careful note of the rules. The tournament will be run according to the CRP with the following exceptions, ammendments and clarifications:

Starting Treasury: 1,050,000
Slann, Underworld, Chaos Pact rosters included.
No Inducements may be purchased as part of your starting roster.
All Inducements allowed (including Special Play Cards) and to be chosen at the start of each game. Petty Cash may be used for Inducements.
SPPs are earned according to the rulebook with the exception of the MVP which is chosen rather than awarded to a random player.
All skill rolls must be made immeadiately after the game in the presence of your opponent (+stats and doubles are allowed).
All purchases, journeymen, and skills must be selected after each game and before the start of the next round.
Any Ogre teams will be allowed to allocate ONE extra MVP to a player of their choice prior to the first game.

Points will be awarded as follows:
Win: 3 Points
Draw: 1 Point
Loss: 0 Points

Each round will be drawn according to the Swiss format with no reference to TDs, CAS or TV
If two or more coaches are tied for first place at the end of the final game then opponent score will be used to find final placings.

It is expected that you will be able to provide appropriate miniatures for any stars that you may induce (or at least proxies that distinguish them from regular team members)
It would be sensible to ensure you bring a good number of skill rings.
Starting Roosters will be required in advance of The ACC so that provision can be made for effecient printing of updated rosters in between rounds.

Venue, costs, and stuff...

The Mitre will be the venue again as per last year. Tickets will be £20 and include two lunches and brilliant prizes. All entrants must be registered with the NAF but NAF Membership is included in the ticket price for any brand new members.

Please send entry fees to robincaddy@hotmail.com or shove money into our hands if thats more convenient.

We look forward to seeing you there Smile

Blocknroll and SillySod

If I can get the logistics sorted I would love to come. It’s near my favourite part of the country after all!

Was talking to Belafon & he reminded me its been nearly two years since my last tournament.

Has the venue been confirmed & what’s the parking like there?

and yes the New Forest is handy! Mrs Havoc could have a few days holiday Smile

ok i'll post these here for Calcium and anyone else
there's the Etap hotel (which is near the railway station, probably not quite half a mile max from town centre)
http://www.etaphotel.com/gb/booking/rates.shtml?packId=15776138642 or search etap Southampton looks like £42 for the saturday night (cheapest ive seen so far actually)

premier inn which would be very handy for drinks in the evening seems to be £66 at the moment http://www.premierinn.com/en/search.action (search Southampton City Centre)

or I know various people have stayed at the travelodge before - http://www2.travelodge.co.uk/search_and_book/hotel_overview.php?hotel_id=66 but that looks well expensive even in their sale prices :S
there are various bed and breakfasts too. will find some links
