This year’s Eastern Conference Championship is a repeat match-up from 2012, while the Rocky Mountain Hierarchs earn their second appearance (winning the conference outright again, as well) and face the challenging Dubuque Fighting Saints.
Managers can field any three bishops from their team – the ‘3-week’ rule is not in effect.

Best wishes in the off-season for the Heresy Hunters and Zealous Zucchettos!
One more note – after the championship will be the Rookie of the Year and MVB (Most Valuable Bishop) selections, as voted by the league managers.
Good luck, teams! May the best bishers win!!
