BloodBowl: Everything old is new again.
Everyone is aware that GW has decided to finally re-recognize it has the best board game on the Planet.
There was a moment or two of nervous anxiety this past November and then the new GW kit was released with stunning new models, play board and all the traditional trimmings. The great news is that 99.9% of the rules are unchanged. Even the Deathzone suppliment simply carried over most of the well known and thuroughly vetted rules we've all come to know and love.
There are a couple things different to talk about in the new rulebook though.

Piling-On looks like it's going to cost a Team Re-Roll for players now. Love it or hate it this does swing the pendulum a tiny bit farther away from the CLAWPOMB and that's not a bad thing in my book. We will NOT be using this newly tweaked rule in the tournament though so all you bloodletters can keep on licking your chops and enjoy the old CRP rule as written.

"Argue The Call" is once again part of the game. Coaches can freely air their frustrations and the officials might even listen!
Gutter Runners seem to have found a new armorer with access to the mysteries of Warpstone and due to an abundance of fresh young talent inspired by daringly aggressive passing play many young humans have driven the price of the average Catcher down significantly.

In order to minimize confusion for those new to the game and learning from the GW BB2016 release we will be using the latest released kit from Games Workshop as our Rulebook-of-Record but that doesn't mean Veteran coaches need to suffer since the GW release schedule hasn't caught up to the game as we know it.
All previously released 24 official NAF approved teams are available and legal for use in all the tournament as well as the rules for them.
I do want to be very clear about this one thing though: No Coach needs the new rulebook(s)/kit to participate. The LRB6/CRP we've been using is practically identical and fully functional for use in event. Any differences tha would affect Tournament play are detailed in the Primer.

My apologies for not getting this up sooner... June was relentless...

Thanks to Everyone for making our first Bumbus Bowl a lot of fun.
We had Nine coaches claw, kick and eyepoke their way through the competition.
There were even five NAF members proving their mettle.

There was one clear winner that proved unstoppable and with good reason. A Lizardman team with Sibli backing them up is a freightening thing indeed. Without Further ado:
Total Possible Tournament Points: 120

Tournament Champion: The Albino Assassins, Coach: Shawn H (Lizardman) - 99pts
Runner Up: Not-z-Face!, Coach: Stuart M (Orcs) - 77pts
Honorable Mention: Blacktown Shamblers, Coach: Kyle C (Undead) - 77pts
- These two coaches were Matched in points but the heros of Da Horde eeked an edge by scoring more TD's by some miracle.

Respected compatriots:
Jarongo Jaguars, Coach: Ron P (Amazon) - 74pts
White River Allstars, Coach: Jason (Human) - 72pts
Bloodletters, Coach: Jason R (Chaos Dwarf) - 64pts
Olentangy Muskrats, Coach: Ryan Y (Skaven) - 56pts
Borr's Bastards, Coach: Nicolas B. (Norse) - 37pts
Average Joes, Coach: Alan D (Human) - 22pts

Most TD's : Albino Assassins - 6
Most Casualties : White River Allstars - 9

The often threatened, much maligned, meade filled Norn Bad-Boys The Frostbit Nipples head-butted their way into the ranks at the last minute to wreak havoc in their own foul-mouthed ways only to vanish before the third round amid grumbles of empty kegs and unflattering women. Their opponents still aren't certain just what happened.

I had a blast organizing and running the days festivities and I hope all the competitors did also.
I look forward to seeing you all again next year!
