The IGTWCC XXVIII Champion has been crowned with marifka's Smaug's Team claiming their 1st IGT World Club Championship, beating krnr's RFG 7 - 42, at the Volgograd Stadium in the Netherlands.

Smaug's Team dominated for much of the match, and to be honest it was probably over at the half, and unless RFG had a player called Bard, who could fire a Black Arrow at the mighty dragon.....there was little chance for them to make a comeback.....   

However both managers should be congratulated on fine seasons.

Congratulations to all the other winners, who will now be able to represent the IGTWCC in the WCC Masters coming soon.

Next we have "The Laboriose Award", which is awarded to the team or teams who I think has shown commitment and effort, and hard work "Above and Beyond" throughout the IGTWCC Tournament. Laboriose is a latin word which is defined as: laboriously, with great effort.

This season we have Two recipients of The Laboriose Award, the 1st goes to manager widget who for those who do not know, has been around the IGTWCC and WCC from the start. In fact widget was one of the 1st score collectors in the original WCC when it was in the Monday spot......for many seasons, when we did it all manually he was one of a team that keep the WCC going along with RFS, francescor82 and myself when I joined. He and managers like him are the guys that this comp going in the early days, and I am delighted to award the trophy for not only his hard work....but also he dedication to compete season after season.

The second goes to Gray Whales Udine manager Rufus73 who always competes to win at every occasion, and this season, due to me allowing a team that lost against him in the 1st round, to continue on due to 2 teams going bot, he ended up coming 4th...and the team he beat came 2nd ironically...so this is a Good Spirit award...for just getting on with it...and not complaining...in the spirit of the award...and the game
