13th-14th April 2013
Welcome to the Staffordshire Swords information site.
Hopefully this will be one of many competitions organised on a yearly basis.
BridgeTown Social Club Cannock
170 Walsall Rd Cannock WS11OJB
The format for this competition will be teams of two individuals,
playing 650pts in 15mm on 5 by 3 foot tables and combining their
scores over the weekend.
Cost will be £20 per team.
Game duration is 3 hrs 15mins per game.
Deployment as per rules, (this will allow LH to attack straight away).
Compulsory terrain must go on table, and then it is 2 to 3 pieces per player.
Scoring as per FOG score sheet.
Game times are on the
Saturday 9.30am-12.45 1.45-17.00
Sunday 9.00am-12.15 1.15-16.30
We hope by combining 8 sets of scores that the teams will be able to absorb a bad
game within the team and consequently one good game will not allow teams be out of reach.
Lists and entry fees (to Dino Monticoli) must be in one week before the competition.
111 Rawnsley Rd
Using normal rules as per deployment etc, and either an email or some other means of contact
supplied for the list checker to reply.

From Junction 11 M6 take the A460 to Cannock.
At the next roundabout, take the A460 (not the A4601) to Cannock
This will take you on the slip road which has the M6 toll alongside it.
You will see 2 tower buildings, as you follow this road.
At the large roundabout at the bottom of the slip road, take the 2nd exit
(Walsall road A34) under the bridge, you will come to a small roundabout,
the venue is the building on the left turn left and the car park entry is on the left.
The social club itself supplies light food (toasties etc.) and there are several places
to eat within a few minutes of the venue and either myself or Adrian will be very happy
to supply you with directions.
Also the Alumwell Club is actively recruiting new members, speak to Adrian or
myself if you are interested in more details.
There will be no specific umpires, although if there is need for one we will resolve
the issue as a combined team.
Any points or questions, email: firstname.lastname@example.org and either myself or Adrian will be
only too happy to assist.
