This years edition of the Twin Mountain Tournament is set to take place over the weekend of August 30th-31st. It will be located at WF-Sundsvall on Nybrogatan 30 in Sundsvall. Due to the nature of the venue, we will be able to provide attending coaches with a bar serving both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as candy and sandwiches, for the duration of the tournament.

Tournament Rules

As this tournament is quite close to the EuroBowl Open, we have decided that it would be a good thing to use the same rules as the EuroBowl, to allow coaches to test out their roster for the big event. Also, those dudes do have some slick ideas, so why not take advantage of that. Credit for these rules goes to Florent Maire(Babass), Bram Serbruyns(gesmachiene) and Mats Clays(Da Great MC)
