Round Winners

The winner of round 103 slid in at just over one million points: congrats Björke from Norrköping, this was his third gold! At second place came viðvarandi from Umeå, his first silver. He is missing a gold for his medal serie, will it come during 2019? At third place came Király, a well known name when it comes to the top 3 placements. He announced in the Sweden chat that he needed two more bronze. This was one, one more to go. Biking during winter demands more both from the turfer and the bike. Well done mates! Bonanza 2019

The annual Bonanza event will be held in Stockholm on May 18th. Compete by foot or bike in the lovely royal Djurgården area in the center of Stockholm. This is a great opportunity to meet and greet fellow turfers from everywhere. The competitions ends with a festive dinner party.

For those that want to sleep over close to the event area where also the Banquette will be held, there is a special discount for turfers at the STF Gärdet Hotell and Hostel. There is also a Bonanza T-shirt to be ordered. And a banquet to sign up for. Information about all of this and more can be found at: http://nyheter.turf08.se The registration period is between February 5th and April 10th.

If you want your public event featured in Turf Insider, write to: insider@turfgame.com preferably at least two months in advance and add a web page if possible. After the event it is always fun to read a paragraph about it (winners, weather, funny episodes) and remember that a picture is always worth more than a 1000 words.

Turf Awards

Turf Awards are awarded to turfers who have made significant or particularly attentive achievements during the previous year or have been involved in an especially noted or spectacular zone takeover.

During January Turf Crew received 57 nominations in the four different classes. During February five nominations in each class will be selected and the Turf community can vote on their favorite in each class from 1st of March. The Turf Awards are then handed over to the winners by Turf Crew during the Bonanza banquet in Stockholm on May 18, 2019.

Link to the voting form can be found here (opens March 1 and closes March 31, 2019): https://goo.gl/forms/VAFenyDiz6W7LoPv2

Turf Connection

Once upon a time in Uppsala there was a new turfer named allinug. She started out slow by taking the home zones in Håga, found her way to TURF Uppsala (on Facebook) and posted a picture or two from the Turf-camera. A long-time turfer named Mumsige commented on the pictures allinug had posted. Mumsige tried to connect the on-line name with potential new turfer in Uppsala. Then alllinug reached out to Mumsige on Facebook and asked if Mumsige remembered her from over 35 years back(!): Mumsige and allinug used to have kids at the same kindergarten in Uppsala, and Mumsige's youngest daughter has the same first name as allinug, since it was a good enough name when the government started to ask for a name for her daughter. After a few weeks communicating on Facebook, the two finally met at a Turfbrunch and I do not think it was the last time!
