Wow What a Weekend!!!




Well wow what a weekend this was. The NPF UK Team Challenge and with 200 runners of 20 teams of 10 an organisation headache. Result= MEGGA MEGGA SUCCESS STORY

Just a few thanks in this post to be honest and Ill fill in on other stuff in my next post.
S2C who organised and put together all the admin and structures and liased with all teams together with his immaculate planning should feel very very proud as to how smooth and well ran this huge game turned out. Most of his stuff often goes un noticed yet I know is hugely appreciated by those that know.
Mr Entertainment who provided the professional PA System and co hosted the event with his partner in crime Cardguard Kid the cockney gangsta and to which theve been re named the new Ant n Dec of the North East. Absolutely superb job and with the addition of Cardguard giving hand for hand commentary throughout and the one line genius and humour had to be heard to be appreciated. Stringfellow, Uncle Festa and Meatballs to name a few.
The captains of the other 4 NPF Teams who lead their teams superb and not one piece of controvery happened over 2 drink fuelled days of fun and poker.
Candice and Mark of the Grosvenor and all their staff who worked so hard and long hours without one bad word said.
Gaz Walker & Koyte who gave teams the opportunity of signed framed photograph momentos which was superb and all of Koytes own back and all at cost price.
To 3 local players Tracey, Kim and Haz who gave up their own time to make up the pool of over 20 dealers that provided this fully dealer dealt competition.
Updaters on the 2nd day Big Neil and Irish Andy who joined in with helping

All the other teams who travelled from around the UK with players coming in from Ireland and even France!!! that made this competiton something we hope to do annually and who will return next year. Each and every player conducted themselves in the right manner and created an absolutely fantastic event and atmospshere in Newcastle.

Roll on 2010!!!

Last but not least congratulations to individual winner Gary Avery from Kracked Kings A Team and a clean sweep by Kracked Kings B team who became the Team Event Champions
