Andy SC Can I have a one person referendum to create a Highlands and Islands region for this?

Fiona T

Fiona T Hmm, starting to look like I might need a Plan B to get this going!

Andy Platt

Andy Platt Can you cancel it and let someone with an Owl Licence create it? Charlie might be too busy to look at it. Also, I ran a regional tournament a few years ago, I can send you my excel documents if you like

Fiona T

Fiona T tx Andy - can't see a way to cancel, but will sort something else out - either a live tourney in an atp gap, or will speak to an owly person. Excel stuff sounds useful - will grab you on messenger at some point :)

Fiona T

Fiona T Right folks, due to the mismatch in regional representations, I've done some jiggery pokery to ensure we've ended up with a slightly better balance.

Please see [link]

Your original region is recorded for posterity.

Alex - as I hadn't heard from you, I've stuck you in with the waifs and strays.
John - you've been moved back to the North West from where you can play for Outer Mongolia

Games are best of 3. To get an even number of players, I've dropped out.

*This is a team game*

For the first round, you will play someone from a different region. Your team's score will be calculated as #wins/#players. At the end of the round, we'll say goodbye to the two lowest scoring regions, which will leave 4 regions for the semi-finals.

Draw will be in aptochat when I get my act together and find a suitably glamorous assistant.

Tourney round: Battle of the Regions!: Sign ups

<< Finals

Notes from the organizer: Battle of the Regions!

Play to represent your region* and we'll find out where the best Countdown players come from.

South West
South East
East of England
West Midlands
East Midlands
North West
Yorkshire and the Humber
North West
North East
Northern Ireland
Rest of World

If you're not sure, there's a map of the English regions here [link]

Format will be best of 3 standard 15 rounders with the winner advancing through to round 2.

Two weeks for sign up, then I will do the draw in apto chat. Any questions, fire away!

*Choose your home, birthplace or whatever you feel you belong - I won't be demanding proof!
