jan 30, 14 Caledonian Uprising: Tournament Report

Caledonian Uprising, an event organised by the Scottisch ETC team has come and gone. Team Belgium send its delegation in the two-day tournament held in Stockport near Manchester. It was definitely worth the trip! Let’s do this again next year. Kudos to Tim King for organising such a well-run event!

Tom, Steven, Jonathan and Alex came by car an arrived in the late afternoon. I teamed up with Davy and we entered the Caledonian Open, a doubles (2 x 500 points) / singles (1 x 1000 points) tournament organised on friday evening. We had fun and got to know some of the UK players.

caledonianuprising The Caledonian Uprising saw Team Belgium’s representatives take on most of the top UK tournament players, including several UK ETC players. The venue was fine. A little bit more space between the tables would have been nice but the room was packed with the 112 players attending. The entrance fee included a special caledonian die and some Scouring tokens.
After three rounds of 3 hour battles, the team went out to dinner. We were too late to join a group of the tournament players for dinner so we went to a local italian place instead. italiandinner

After another two rounds of battles, there was the mandatory reward ceremony. Davy and Alex won some prizes while Steven was lucky and won something from the raffle. raffel

We had a look at the display cabinets, visited the shop and had lunch at bugman’s bar. Several hours later we all got home exhausted but satisfied!
