Lincoln and Bristol, the 2 oldest Co-events, return for 2018!

The Co-event scene has been going since 2005, so it’s fitting that the first two events to be held in and announced for 2018 are the two oldest events! COLIN – or Countdown in Lincoln – has been running every year since 2005, and was joined in 2014 by a Sunday event, aptly named The…

A very long-overdue update…

Apologies for the silence! This is just a quickie (wahey) to summarise the highlights of the last few months: FOSTER’S ON FIRE: Rob Foster is yet to appear on the show, but he’s the man to beat at our events at the moment. A community veteran, he’s won 3 of the last 4 FOCAL tournaments…

FOCAL 2017 is underway, following a fantastic Countdown in Lincoln…

Countdown in Lincoln was only our first event of the year, but we broke a record!

So far, 49 players have signed up to play on the Saturday, breaking 2014‘s record of 47. The Hangover – a smaller, shorter event played on the Sunday – has…

The 12 Years of COLIN

COLIN – Countdown in Lincoln – is, famously, our longest-running event. Set up in 2005 by Series 46 champion Ben Wilson and returning every year since then, it’s doubled in size since its inception and despite being a bit awkward to get to, has become practically folkloric in the murky Countdown underworld. This year’s COLIN events are…
