DUBLIN vs LONDON Q-Final *Fisty Cuffs* (The Rundown)

Team Dublin s Tour Diary:

SECRET WARS - 1st Leg Q-Final Battle in London Town

Team Dublin hit the sky's and jetted over to LDN for the wkend to kick off the 1st Leg Q-Final battle against our old friends and pioneers of Secret Wars....


Right game faces on - and to The Book Club we headed for what turned out to be a very sweaty and packed affair of Irish and English supporters cheering on both teams. The battle ended up being quite the experience with both teams literally having equal amounts of people screaming to take the decibel reader vote. However in the end Riff, Alfa and Teck pulled out a piece to take a guest judge and the all important home crowd vote - FINAL SCORE 2-1 = London

Overall fun night and many thanks to the amount of Irish people that turned out to support us....we ll get them next time!

SECRET WARS - 2nd Leg Q-Final Battle in Dublin`s Fair City

Round 2:

Firstly a big shout out to everyone that came to this battle! We decided to switch it up with a venue change so it was great to see some familiar AND the many new faces that showed. Having already lost 2-1 away meant that we needed either 3-0 to advance to the semi or 2-1 to draw. What happened next was a FIRST in Secret Wars history! Both London & Dublin pulled out all the stops in deliver 2 sick pieces that saw a guest judge and crowd vote going Dublin's way & the final guest judge vote going London s way. TIE BREAKER it went.....and this was no ordinary tie breaker battle to go through to the Semi.

ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS Infamous Tie Breaker

Q - Final Battle Saturday 25th September

The Secret Wars Euro League is coming to an end - The live art battle which boasted 17 European cities has only a few left and guess what....Southampton are still in it!!

Come on Southampton!!!!
Being the only team in the whole competition to lose only one battle, means team Southampton is a real threat and a serious contender to go all the way!! I think it was Samuel Jackson that said in the movie Coach Carter, "Just because we deserve to win, doesn't mean they're going to let us"! Great film and wise words.

So we need all the support we can get!! Remember as well as the judges votes, there's a crowd vote, which is where you guys come in!

There's some serious artistic talent on show, Amsterdam I bringing the big guns. You only have to google these names to get a load of stats and images - Mr K, Wayne Horse, Sjoco Sjon, Via Via, Zender and Chaz from the infamous London Police!!

But Southampton are more than capable of taking them out. Led by team Captain Hicks 54 (, Zadok, Gustav, Mr Dead, Sobac and Smurph are ready and waiting.

We're moving the event from our usual Thursday night slot to a Saturday night - SATURDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER!!

We're also changing the venue - The Monument Gallery -

The historic Bargate Monument, in central Southampton is run by arts organization 'a space'. The organisation strives to provide opportunities for emerging artists and audiences in
Southampton and the surrounding regions to make and engage with
high quality artistic experiences.

So just to clarify, that big castle in the middle of town, is a Gallery and YES you can go inside it. Due to the size, space is very limited, so make sure you arrive nice and early to avoid any kind of heartbreak.

Date: Saturday 25th September 2010
Where: The Monument Gallery (Opposite The Addict Store)
Time: doors open at 7pm - space is limited, so arrive early!
Price: £5 entry!
