On certain mornings, as the first rays of light radiate from the dawning sun, a long white cloud can be glimpsed in the distance over the rippled blue waters off the coast of the Southern Wastes. Tormented by the stifling heat and relentless dry winds turning their skin to leather, the Blood Bowl tragics are contemplating an off season going to seed and withering like weeds under a good dose of ‘Roundup”.

Then one day in late December a voice is heard drifting over the waves.
“Cricky dick! Bro, stop stuffing ya face with greasies and come here. Can’t be sure based on the togs, but there is some pakeha cuz over other side.”
“Sheez Bro, you ain’t wrong.”
“Now that Chrissy is done, you think that they might be wanting a tiki tour over here and play some Bloodbowl?”

The sun-addled brains absorbed the word ‘Bloodbowl’, triggering an involuntary response. Before you could say, “couldn't see the road to the dunny if it had red flags on it”, all the blokes and mates got a into g, grabbed their gummies went sailing of to Aotearoa to find Waikikamukau and play Bloodbowl in cooler climes.

“Sweet as. Hey bro, rattle your dags and make sure the chilly bin is chocka with L&P, get your nana to jack up some savs and pavs and don’t forget the chocolate fish from the dairy. This going be a piss up large so better make sure that zambuck is around in case some dag carks it”

The Waikikamukau Bloodbowl Festival.

Rules.

Open to all SWL Fringe teams new and old, not currently playing in SWL proper. DIBBL teams are also invited to join. No TV limit and no age limit so whether you are a LRB4 legendary team or a CRP rookie you are welcome.

Format. Swiss chess scheduled rounds, random seeding, and overtime to avoid draws.

The festival will use all the optional rules for Claw, Piling On, Right Stuff and Sneaky Git. So any dirty fouling ‘flings are more than welcome to come and put the boot in.

No use of the time out button and you can have any team you like (including Simyin!)

The festival management have done a great deal with the local wizarding guild and got them to sponsor each game with some special items. This is pot luck, but every team will receive 100 gold to spend with the guild on CARDS before each game.

Prizes to be determined, but as with all festivals, everyone is a winner.

Sign up to Fringe here, nominate your team on this thread and lets have a great off season blast before SWL has its Final Hurrah and exciting re-birthing.

The 4th Waikikamukau Festival kicks off on Boxing Day!! 26th of December the day after Christmas Wink

a few more things:

- I did NOT write that fluff. It's all poley's "good" work. He has kindly agreed to let me run this year's edition.

- DIBBL teams, you get a free pass from the Leeg for this one.

- OT is on from the start this time. No draws, means we'll probably get through it in 4 rounds. If we get more than 16 teams, we'll do a 5th round only if needed.

- It's Swiss. This means you'd be holding up the whole tournament if you miss the weekly deadline. It's not possible to play ahead in Swiss. Please be considerate and try to get your game done in good time, the Axe will be brutal.

and first team signed up is last year's runner-up:

With the exception of bojo, all the coaches signed up so far are kiwis.

Should we run some side event - Aus vs NZ meta cup thing?

A timetable. Deadlines:

Round 1: 4th January (Thursday)
Round 2: 15th January (Monday)
Round 3: 22nd January (Monday)
Round 4: 29th January (Monday)

I'll look at making cup icons for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. It can be hard to maintain interest in a Swiss competition, but if there are slightly lower hanging fruit for teams to aim for and to add to the bios it might keep people engaged. Maybe a Golden, Silver and Bronze udder
