Spike! Magazine Tournament 2009
Random thoughts: Another great year. The scores at the tops of each category were much closer this time around, owing to our going 6 rounds instead of 7. Until we added up the numbers this time, even the winning coaches had no idea they’d done as well as they had. Jesse in particular was surprised to come second overall despite having been 20 Coaching points behind the two leaders, John MacIntosh and Kavinay Kishor. His Sportsmanship and Painting scores nearly pulled him into the lead; if only he’d scored one more TD in either of two games … and wow, it was really a brawl this year: we had 1.9 Casualties per side per game, and a 4-way tie for third place in Casualties Against, with 19 apiece over 6 games. Tyler had a lot to do with that, with his “Game Plan” scoring 33 Casualties on his own, for more than 5 per game! Another amusing event occurred when Kavin had to decide between Coaching and Endzone Hog, mirroring a decision made by Dave Sutton last year, who had to decide between Endzone Hog and Outstanding Painting. So Dave, he “stole” your award last year, and this year you “stole” it back!
Special thanks again to our sponsors, Games Workshop, Imperial Hobbies (Richmond), Craving for a Game (Surrey Central), and Core Games (Brentwood Mall). Thanks too go to the guys who donated prizes, Ryan Sen, Mike McAree, Brett Bird, Lee Eisner, Rob Gordon (and anyone I may have forgotten). Thanks a bunch guys. Special note of thanks to Avatars of War, whose donated models didn’t reach us in time from their shipping centre in Barcelona. We’ll hold on to those models when we get them and use them as prize support for the next event.
Anyway, I promised you scores, so here they are. We had a great time and we hope to see you all (and some more of your friends) at the next one! -Craig.
