Upcoming UK Tournaments

Hey guys. Thought I would put up a small update on Tournaments coming up within the UK which me and the boys may or may not b heading up to. Leave a comment below if you fancy heading up and I am sure we can all sort some things out in terms of transportation, accomadation and just chilling out & grabbing a few beers.
I tend to personally only travel far if its a 2 day event, as it costs me a fair bit to travel far with those stupid petrol prices just for 1 day.
So here they are:

  1. Few there I'll be up for. Would be rude not to go to the Wandsworth one since thats not to far from me (actually play basketball around the corner from the venue I think).

  2. Great list, cheers for posting it up. I'm hoping to make it to a lot more tournaments this year. Oh and don't forget Blog Wars on the 5th of June!

  3. How could he! lol.
    For me at least my calendar would be:
    Blog Wars - June
    BWlords - Aug
    X Legion - Aug
    Starsmash - Sept
    BWlords Doubles - Nov

    Or at least I think those are what I'd like to hit...only one in doubt is Starsmash, cos apart from Killswitch attending last year I know nothing about it...
