Now the competition is well under way and the climax will be a finals day I am thinking we should make more of the end game. I spoke to Dave from Caliver books at Derby and he reckons he has space in his new Nottingham shop for several tables and we could play the finals up there, have a browse in the shop and make a day of it.
Or if our Dave has contacts at GCN perhaps we can get in the the GW venue at Nottingham - perhaps they could write up the games for White dwarf.
So suggestions folks on how you think we can make the most of finals day? Input [aerticulary from those who think they will be at the top of the divisions - you know who you are? of course we would also have a wooden spoon play off.
It's a shame that there wasn't an even number of players in each division. That way we could have had a mass finals day where we had 3rd play 3rd (for 5th place), 4th play 4th (for 7th) etc, at the same time we played the semi-finals or finals.
I would tend to agree with Mike. Using Warhammer world for the final seems a bit OTT. Not all members will have time or facility to go all the way up there , I think. Plus the hassle of sorting it out just for 2 or 3 games, best just carry on as we are. Dave
There is no urgency to this as I suspect we will not be finished this side of the new year. The top 4 people will be playing 2 games as the semi finals will be between the top of Div 1 v second in Div 2 and vice versa with the final played between the 2 winners. There is nothing to stop us having more games on the day (or weeekend?) am if people to not want to go to Nottingham we can always do in on a club Sunday or over a couple of Mondays.

I'm not that interested in going up to Nottingham for the finals. I've been up there so frequently over the last three or so years that it's not a novelty to play games there anymore. Personally I think the museum is overrated, and while the gaming area and Bugmans are nice they're not really worth an hour plus's drive to get there.
I'd rather play the games at the club which requires much less travelling time and petrol costs.
