Bounding First Fire Blackpool Update - 22nd to 25th November 2018.

OK. And we have lift off.

The prizes are in, the hotel is booked, the scenarios are being worked on. All we now need are the players.




We had to ultimately make a choice between two dates, and the overwhelming majority suggested this to be the preference. Huge apologies to anyone who cannot make this date but could make the December one but we had to make the call and the market research we conducted suggested December was just too late in the year and too close to Christmas for many to be able to commit. In terms of preference the vast majority preferred the November date, so here we are.

We've received the prizes from sponsors of the main tournament Bounding Fire Publications (WOW is all I will say here !) and also from sponsors of the Mini Tournaments BattleSchool (WOW, again). Other prizes are also on order.

We'll have our website up and running later in the year.


Format

The main tournament, sponsored by Bounding Fire Publications, will run through Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning and will take the form of blind scenarios. We'll notify in advance of equipment which will be required and of which rule sets people will need to bull up on. But most/all will be relatively straightforward. There will be no beach landings, at night, with naval artillery support, and Japanese defenders in cave complexes. We'll confirm full tournament rules and structure nearer to the time.

The minis tournament, sponsored by BattleSchool Dice will run throughout the Thursday. We'll also run similar minis throughout the weekend for later arrivals who cannot make the main tournament but would like a structured tournament setting.

There'll be plenty of opportunities for friendly play for those who would prefer it.

There'll also be Starter Kit mentoring sessions/refereeing for anyone interested in attending who is relatively new to the game (we've had some interest in this).

Any Other Business

Just please get in touch with me should you have any questions or queries. 

We are open to any reasonable suggestions (which don't revolve around issues relating to which dice to use....Joe !) and will continue to post updates as we get closer to the tournament both here, by email via the mailing list, Facebook, Boardgamegeek etc.

Please help support this. Intensive Fire historically was THE first and THE major UK tournament. We want to restore it to it's former glory. But we can't do it without YOU the community.

Thanks in advance and hope to see you in November.
