Couple of questions regarding this event:

  1. Does the Bonescon £20 weekend ticket cover entry in to any or all of the above GB events?
  2. What are the number of signups for the Saturday tournament? I ask as I'm interested in attending but want to make sure there are spots left/the tournament is viable.

Apologies if this is covered elsewhere (my search-fu is weak)

The ticket covers all events.

We will be making sure there are enough events to cover demand.

Plus we're also workimg with SFG to see what Godtear we can offer with the Alpha on offer, but hopefully a BETA event following the release of the beta set.
