The Christchurch DBA Open Championship is a popular local event which runs each year here in Christchurch, New Zealand. It comprises two tournaments. The first is in July and the second in December. Each has five rounds.
The dates have recently been determined and are as follows: Ancient Tournament: Sunday 3rd July 2016 Medieval Tournament: Sunday 11th December 2016
The Runners & Riders have been posted and for tomorrow's event. There are a few surprises as well as some old favourites. A number of players have selected armies with a high aggression and there is a underlying theme of hoplites which is a little different.

I find the tie result seems to come up often. From that respect a recoil can result in yet another overlap. Further, the tie can see mounted recoiling from solid foot. Occasionally, if combined with a stand attacking a flank, the Ax will destroy mounted. But then moving 3 BWs can be appealing as well...
