Re: World Tornado Championships

Much bigger turnout than past years. Event formats were a bit hit and miss (lots of straight SE which divided opinion) but field sizes made things a huge grind. Something like ~190 entrants for expert singles and best of 5 the whole way. Goes without saying that the US standard is exceptional (throu...

Re: Garlando WCS Jul 21-24, Salzburg Austria

I've booked flights as they were going fast. Arriving Wed 20th and leaving on Mon 25th.

I'll probably reserve a double room at the hotel listed on the flyer and arrange room mates closer to the time as people decide.

Re: Garlando WCS Jul 21-24, Salzburg Austria

You can confidently assume I'm in.

Garlando WCS have always been fun. A big GB turnout would definitely be awesome!

Bonzini Worlds 2016 Afterglow

Having skipped the extra Sunday doubles events to avoid taking a Monday off work, I thought I should start the ball rolling...

Re: Cork balls in a Garlando

Welcome to the forum. Matty has already given you some helpful pointers for the foos scene, but I'd also suggest joining the BFA group on FB which is very active. Using cork balls will not necessarily be a horrible experience on Garlando, but if you're likely to take the game more seriously (competi...

Re: Chair's Blog

Nice updates Joe. How many UK tournaments are planned (roughly...) to take place before the November UK championships? I'm a fan of using POY to select one spot for each category, but it seems a little challenging to get an accurate ranking within that time frame (especially if someone can't make a ...

HOFC & ICC 2016 Vegas Trip Report

In an effort to get more content on the forum, I thought I'd share my Vegas report here. Will/others - please feel free to cross-post on the facebook page if you want something up there too. I was initially going to write a day-by-day run down of the entire trip, but in typical Britfoos fashion, a p...

Re: Bonzini World Series & ECL, 5-8 May 2016, St Quentin, France

I'm 95% at this point. Need to find an OD partner though.

Is everyone staying for the Sunday or travelling back early? Speedball and classic doubles are utterly unappealing in my opinion...

Re: HOF Classic - Las Vegas 6-13 Mar

So I'm all booked up for this - flying in Wed afternoon (9th) and flying back Sunday evening (13th).

I'll be watching the InterCup all Thursday and hoping to play in as many events as possible after that. Anyone interested, looking for partners, aware of anyone looking...

HOF Classic - Las Vegas 6-13 Mar

I realise this forum isn't heavily used so I'll create a group on FB too, but thought I'd see who's up for Vegas in March? Tons of events, high quality Tornado foos & you get to watch the Intercontinental Cup! Flights aren't ridiculous (£600 direct with BA) and rooms are special rate ($99 per night ...

Re: ECL & Garlando WCS - Vienna, Austria

Definitely considering a last minute trip to Austria now I've caught the Garlando bug again. Will be looking at hotels and flights this afternoon if I can get the Friday and Monday off work at short notice. Any help greatly appreciated. According to IGR I'm semi-pro in doubles and rookie in singles....

Looking forward to some competitive Garlando action after a rather long break.
