An update from the front.

It appears a cold font has descended upon Bournemouth, it's getting dark and wet. This won't break the morale of the brave ko2 warriors who are assembling as we speak.

Robert Swift has cancelled. I believe his world record of attending every UKC is now in shatters :)

It was great to meet everyone, some new faces , some old. Special mention goes to Andy for organising everything!

The Uk Championship consisted of 15 games per player, 6 players in total. Andy was leading from the start , a sign of things to come.

My performance was very much a tale of two joysticks. I suspected an issue with the UAE emaulator I had been using for practice. I found it very difficult to use any diagonal direction. True enough, after 5 games I asked Andy who confirmed that the Konix Speedking was well and truly knackered.

Luckily I had brought along joystick B, a competition pro. Unfortunately I had never used this stick before and found it impossible to use. I borrowed Ian's "loose" zipstick but that was of no benefit either.
Image


I then reverted back to the Konix speedking minus diagonal moves. The Speedking's stick promptly disintegrated in my hands !

Image



Thankfully I was able to operate the Greek Stick that Steve loaned me and continued my runtiness with gusto !


Andy is the UK Championship 2015 winner !

The fixture generated results file is here

All hail Durban winner the of the Golden goal cup !

Great report Danny, thanks for making the trip to join our humble gathering :)

You played very well considering your joystick issues and lack of practice. I think we had a very tense game that ended 1-0. Could you post the results file listing all the matches?

HUGE thanks go to Andy for organising and congrats on a typically flawless performance.

Great to see Ely, Ian and Durban again. Apologies go to Durban for suffering death by lob.
