Meanwhile good luck to all our members who are participating tomorrow!

Thanks JB! I haven't been so excited for ages. It seems the wife and kids are now planning on going to Lego Land tomorrow instead, so I'll be all alone. This does mean I'll have a much better chance of spending some money though!  >:D

I also wish good luck to all UK championship participants from CarcC! :(y)
It would be nice, if at least one CarcC member would go to Essen as a national champion! O0

I too would love to see this. But when the inevitable happens tomorrow (to me), don't blame me for losing, blame everyone else for beating me!

I too will do my best. But unfortunately I am a typical brit when it comes to competition.  We are all absolutely amazing at what we do - about 37% of the time.   As for the rest of the time we are shit!  In fact worse than that.  So I think I Will either win or crash and burn early on.   Wish me luck though. 
Just lay the damn tile!

Rosco, Decar and danisthirty

first of all - have a nice day.
Rosco and danisthirty - have a good drive to Birningham.

How do you recognize each other?

If you come in time to the workshop from Udo - you can say hello to him.

Good luck guys and have a nice day.
A knight is sworn to valour.
His heart knows only virtue.
His blade defends the helpless.
His might upholds the weak.
His word speaks only truth.
His wrath undoes the wicked.

 :white-meeple: My works.
