A massive thank you to Patras Stratego Club for organising such an impressive tournament. I was struck by the friendliness of everyone involved and their desire to accommodate and help out wherever possible. It was a pleasure to meet so many of you that for me had only existed online (and many who were entirely new to me) and it was evident that so much time had been invested by many people.

Now I have sampled the taste of a live tournament I strongly urge those who haven't done so to 'cross the water'. This made-up expression can be literally applied as I look forward to meeting some of you again for the World Championships in Marmari.

Again (Palley in Greek) thank you to all those involved (especially dalee) for a wonderful experience :-)

I am really glad you took my encouragements finally and started with your first live tournament to witness how that paid out with the number 1 spot  :o! Now with Greece not being any hurdle it's probably a small step to play the London tournaments as well :rolleyes:.

 

And most important, form the British team with the Brits I contacted you with. Would be a lot of fun to see you form another strong country. Now all we need next is the Americans to join the cause :blink:  B).

Patras Stratego Team organized for the second consecutive year the great Patras Battles tournament, giving this year an international dimension to the entries of the contestants. The co-organizer was the "Ekfrasi" Cultural Association of Eglikada.

iuGLgLR.jpg

The Patras Battles 2017, which was included in the official calendar of the International Stratego Federation (ISF), took place at the Agora Argyri in Patras on the weekend of 29-30 April, in a very beautiful atmosphere both by the organizers and participants and by the many spectators.

 

The top player Tim Slagboom,  the upcoming Charlie Palley and the Greek champion 2016 Ioannis Vandoros honored the tournament with their participation, accepting the special invitation they received. In addition to the special guests, part of the main event, took part some of the best Greek players and most players of the Patras Stratego Team.

Since the early hours of Saturday, there has been a lot of action due to the Junior for the young generals started, as well as the Open tournament for beginners and new players. From the younger ages to the older, all behaved fairly.

MqLalG9.jpg

After many battles in Junior, Pilalis Ernestos of Athens Stratego Team was finished first, Anastopoulos Aristotle second and Dimopoulos John third.

In the Open, Koutsocheras John won the first place, leaving Karras John second in the final. Pilalis Christos of the Athens Stratego Team won the third place in the small final against Solou Konstantina.

SlCc4ny.jpg

In fact, to main event "Patras Battles" players from both, Open and Junior, qualified, which gave them the opportunity to gain experience against strong opponents.

Educational gifts were handed out to our young friends from “To Donti” bookshop and a free coffee card was given to the first three winners of the Open, from "coworking space POS 4 Work".

 

At the end of the Open and Junior, all competitors from Patra, from the other Greek cities and friends from abroad arrived at noon on Saturday. Central figures were none other than our three official guests, John Vandoros (Greek Champion), Tim Slagboom (Dutch Champion), Charlie Palley (England) hosted at "Delfini" Hotel.

The main theme of welcome ceremony for our guests was the city of Patras, information about the Team and presentation of the guests themselves. A greeting from the side of the Municipality of Patras was made by Georgakopoulos Elias, President of the Athletic Committee of the Municipality. Detailed information about the Stratego World Championship 2017 was provided by Adamakis Gregory, representative of the Athens Stratego Team. Then all the players were dealt with the participation cards.

 

Patras Battles followed the Swiss Perfect tournament system with seven rounds. On Saturday, 3 of the 7 rounds took place and the high competitiveness brought surprises in the first rounds, leaving no one to predict the outcome.

In the evening, Patras Stratego Team organized a dinner at the "Vosporos" restaurant with delicious appetizers, plenty of tsipouro and local flavors.

Sunday was the important day for the tournament’s classification. The main menu was four battles for each contestant.

 

In the mid-break a special draw took place for a stylish glass bow tie, sponsored by Vetro, won by Alexia Kokkinovassili.

Before the final round, three players (Palley, Vandoros and Trypanagnostopoulos) claimed the first place and eight players the medal positions (Palley, Vandoros I, Slagboom, Trypanagnostopoulos, Tsotras, Vandoros S, Tsigkounis and Vandoros E.). Finally, the victories of Charlie Palley against George Trypanagnostopoulos and Tim’s Slagboom against John Vandoros gave the title of Patras Battles 2017 Champion to the English general, in his first live tournament. The second was the Dutchman and J. Vandoros third.

It is worth mentioning that Charlie Palley won the Trophy, sponsoring by the "vitro-fushing Anassa" workshop counting six wins, making his only defeat by the Patras Stratego Team player, Konstantinos Tsigkounis.

 

At the same time, in the tournament area, the Patras team had a very beautiful exhibition with various special stratego editions, as well as a presentation of photos from its action as well as past tournaments.

 

Also, an honorary painting exhibition of the late Ioannis Tripanagnostopoulos, father of the organizer George was held, as a minimum tribute, of his maximum offer to the Team. This was the beginning of a series of exhibitions that will portray the work of the artist and will continue to promote his ideas.

RiEqAy0.jpg

 

Western's Greece TV channel “SuperB” brought the feel of the tournament through the TV. The “Peloponnese” newspaper and the “Tetarto” magazine with constant articles informed Patras throughout the week about the activities to be held in Patras Battles 2017. Also, the Wave97.4 radio station supported the event.

 

The arbiter team was composed by Dimitris Frantzis, Thanasis Barsakis. And George Voerakos, working perfectly and managing well all categories. The Red Cross has covered the entire tournament with a continuous presence, with the most thanks of Patras Stratego Team. The appearance of females was satisfactory, reaching six in the total of participants.

 

Many thanks to the Municipality of Patras for the concession of the place, but also to the employees of the Agora Argiri for the support and in some cases of the voluntary overrun of their working hours.

 

Their practical support by covering the necessary needs to Patras Battles, gave, the pizzeria "Pink Panther", "The Tranio" cafe, "Snowshop" in Kalavryta, "CopyCorner Nikolopoulos Dimitris" and "KalavrytaNEWS".

 

Important was the contribution of the Athens Stratego Team (a member of the Hellenic Stratego Association ) with the use of a 6 stratego boards to cover the major requirements of the tournament.

Pleasant news was the announcement of the creation of a new team in Pyrgos Ilias, by the former Patras Stratego Team player, Thanasis Koustenis.

 

The big meeting is now for August 18-20, in Marmari, Evoia Island, for the 2017 World Championship. Various Open Tournaments are expected before World Cup in Greek cities for the preparation of Greek players.
