Fight day!

Things got real pretty damn fast over the last week! We got matched up with our opponents, I managed to guess a fair few matchups and for the most part, I think the coaches did a great job.

But as the big day looms, the true implications of what we’ve decided (and paid) to put ourselves through gains some unwelcome clarity. It’s almost … Continue reading We need YOU

24hr Gaming Marathon- The Cause

Tom W So me and thehydeaway are huge gaming fans, so gaming for endless hours is not something unusual for us, but doing it for 24hrs will be like stepping into the unknown. The 24hr gaming marathon, although fun, is ultimately to raise money for a cause that is very close to us, family and friends. The cause being cancer support. Me and my family … Continue reading 24hr Gaming Marathon- The Cause
