Newcastle tournament in brief:
The tournament was well organised by Northern Storm, I think everyone enjoyed themselves and even the weather held up.
The team got quite a lot of game time and won three games (I think) out of 5 in the pool and had two narrow defeats in the post-games losing to Lancs in a shoot-out to but avoiding the wooden spoon to finish 8th. All us newbies got some good experience and also thanks to the experienced players who came along Jay, Gill & Jack.
In summary, a few good wins, a few injuries (and one black eye), surprisingly nice burgers, too many chips, room swapping (no, not like that), a chilly beach walk, a riverside excursion, a very dodgy Toon club, some jugs of luminous cocktails and a few glorious hours of sun which resulted in many red faces.
