I am also from the North East. Upstate New York. I'm currently playing online with several tournament organizers. We're working to coordinate our tournaments so that there are no conflicts. I think we'll have 7-8 tournaments annually around upstate New York, Mass and Western New York. We're also working to make sure we don't conflict with the tournaments in PA. They're very good as well. PM me if you'd like more information.

Great to have you aboard, Eatbats. Enjoy!
The north east is somewhat of a hotbed Malmir. I, as a southerner, try to get to Monkeybowl (Hartlepool) every year and the GBBL (Newcastle) as often as I can. Two of my favourite events of the year. There are many more in the area that I’m less likely to get to, I recommend you drop Cribbleopplepie a PM, as he is big in the Geordie league and should be able to put you right. As and when things restart, of course.

Sorry - Geordiebowl. Tired typo. Monkey is traditionally April, Geordiebowl September.

As Purplegoo said theres quite a few mate us from the GBBL set them up theres one I run called 'Charity Bowl' which is for a different charity each year we have block on the tyne, block around the clock, And the mighty Geordie Bowl all great fun and theres probabaly more than i've mentioned :)

Thanks Purplegoo and Morg. I'd definitely be interested in Monkey bowl as that's where I work and only 20 min away. Block around the clock I have heard of and it sounds life ending :)

Anyone got a link for Cribbleopplepie? I remember playing against him but searching returns nothing and I can't find his coach page.

Yeah block around the clock was my first ever tournament it was... tough lol. I’ll send you a pm with a link

I always get the number of bs and ps wrong. :)
Block Around the Clock is... Not for me. Did it once, and that’ll do me! But other sadists seem to enjoy it. :)

More than welcome to come to Steelbowl in Sheffield when I can run it on tabletop again :) (I'm the TO for the TT version). I hope you enjoy the online version. Can't wait to see what people will bring.
