Turf insider May 2014
Results of round 46
April was a round for the ladies! Both gold and silver went to two of our most notorious turfers around. In first place, with an outrageous score of 852000 points and 5773 takeovers (both new records by the way), we find Snusmumriken from Linköping. Her round was indeed filled with achievements, such as a double El Staminatore (that's 400 takeovers in one day!) and during the round she hit the magic mark of 50000 takeovers in total. She also found the time to visit the Borlänge Turf Open, she didn't win here though, that was for her son Thunell... In second place we find our total points number 1, kingenin. She scored a nice and easy 573000 points for the silver, not bad indeed. In third place we have a newcomer from Örebro, LUCASochLOVISA scored 467000 points. Congrats to all the medalists!
Bonanza in Stockholm, 7th of June!
The 7th of May is the last day to sign up for the Bonanza, so if you haven't done it already it's time! We're looking at a new record of participants, last I checked it's about 140 turfers who have signed up already! Of course the first heat is still open to anyone who forgot to sign up, so we hope to see even more show up. But remember that if you want to compete for the gold, silver and bronze medal, better prizes and the awesome Turf goodiebag, you need to sign up for heat 2.
Regardless of which heat you will be in (you cant be in both), there will be a lot of fun times, meeting new people, talking Turf and of course the gala dinner at The Flying Horse which is the local Stockholm turfers prefered joint for Turf meetings.. There will also be fun activities for the kids, especially in between heat 1 and 2! I'm hoping to meet you there! :-)

The first Borlänge Turf Open was held on April 26th and it was a great day! The weather was absolutely amazing, around 50 turfers showed up and chased zones and each other for an exciting two hours. It was a very even event aswell, the fight for the top spots was fierce but in the end Thunell ended up in first place, before LaserLudde in second and UrbanGeeks in third place. The turnout was great, I counted five previous gold medalists and quite a few other prominent turfers had found their way to Borlänge. I hope all of them and more come back next year :-) Also, on the behalf of the Borlänge Turf Open crew I wish to thank all participants, but also our sponsors Cykelcentrum, Sogeti and Maserfrakt for their great contribution to the prize table!
