Random thoughts:

Hey, we knew the team build allowed for more diverse selections, but no one expected Underworld to take the prize! Being led by two-time Spike! Champion John MacIntosh certainly helped … well done, John! This year’s Tribal Leeg trophy was hard-fought as well, with two Goblin teams placing 10th and 15th, and a Halfling team coming in 19th overall. The winner of this year’s Stunty Cup, Burk’s “Morg et al” also placed second in overall casualties. Those stunties play rough!

Out-of-towners once again came in good numbers: We had a great number of coaches from Alberta, including Dave Sutton, returning after a few years’ absence. The Ordo league from Oregon represented well, with Burk taking home the Tribal Leeg trophy. Andy and Jason came up from Seattle and Everett, and we had folks from the Island and the Interior of BC as well. Most Travelled award goes to Ignacio San Miguel from Spain, who also took home The Wall award for fewest TDs against.

This year we tried a new meta-game, the “Team Challenge.” Coaches assembled into blocks of 3 and pooled their scores for a little friendly side bet. Frankly I don’t even know how the scoring worked for this; Kavinay Kishor and Steve Lemky set this up and tallied the points. Thanks guys for building on this great event.

Here’s to another great year! – Michael (poundfist)
