|Big success for the Octoberfest tournament|
October was a month to remember for Greek Subbuteo. In Kallithea, 16 players competed in the traditional "Octoberfest WASPA tournament" in two categories, modern and old. German teams were used, beers and sausage in the catering section, and as always great fun and super games for the Subbuteo Flaming Flickers.
In the modern rules event, Mike Tastsoglou defeated Vassilis Dragossis in the final while Ioannis Stergiopoulos and Makis Kazatzoglou were the losing semi-finalists.
The old Subbuteo event was won by Nikos Probonas who was playing his very first WASPA event. The Noctuas player defeated Vaggelis Scotiniotis by a single goal in the final. Vasilis Tsakalakis and Antonis Krysilas made it the semis.
Later in the months, the Kallithea Flames held their "Copa Libertadores" with 16 players competing with original Subbuteo teams. Vaggelis Giantais (Ibis, Brazil) defeated Mike Tastsoglou to claim the title while Vaggelis Scotiniotis and Vasilis Tsakalakis made it to the final 4.
Earlier in the month, the club of Achaioi TSC had a tournament with FISTF rules. Panagiotis Sotiropoulos finished on top of a group of 5 while Dimitris Sotiropoulos was runner-up. Nikos Vasilopoulos was 3rd, Georgios Verganelakis 4th and Manolis Sotiropoulos 5th.
Manolis Sotiropoulos had more luck a few days later, winning the club's first old rules event while Dimitris Sotiropoulos was runner-up.
