MA League Event #4 (March 2019)

Post by Hutch »

What: 4 Game, Swiss Constructed Deck tournament. Differential scoring (SoS scoring if we have >10 players).
When: Sunday, March 24th, start time 11:00 am.
Where: Gaming Etc., 531 Main St H, Acton, MA 01720
Entry fee: $10 suggested donation per person*


The 2019 League Kit has been ordered and hypothetically should be on hand for this event. All participants will receive PC provided foils, AIs, and/or v-slips. I can/will bring extra decks with me if anyone has a friend who would like to play and doesn't have cards. If you need to borrow cards/decks, post here in this forum or PM me and we'll see what we can source. Also, please post if you plan on attending so we know who all we are waiting on that day.

*In light of the passing of one of our local players, 100% of the entry fees for this event will be given as a donation in memory of Sam deWahl to the Enosburg Falls High School Music Department. Anyone unable to attend but that would still like to donate, please PM dredged14 or myself to set this up.

I should be there along with Travis. He has been actively acquiring to build clones of the decks he has been borrowing (or at least close to clones) but I'm not sure if he is quite there yet... may need to borrow one more time.

I'll be there. My son might come as well, but not sure about that yet.

Just an FYI to the group, many of you new Sam Dewahl (darth narwhal) from the forums and a few of the recent events. He unfortunately passed away a couple of weeks ago after a long illness. I'm not sure how we could honor him at the next visit. I was thinking of giving a couple of promos to his wife to pass on to some of his former CCG playing buddies.

Oh no, that is horrible to hear. I'm not sure if our paths ever crossed 'back in the day' but he attended Kashyyk Regionals last year as well as MA states. I'm all for putting something together. Do you have connections to his former ccg buddies/family?

Yes, I'm in touch with his wife. I have a copy of the foil card from the LTM event that I saved for him that I'll send to her, but we may do more. There is a memorial service on 3/16, although I don't think I can make it.

I'm really sorry to hear about this. I only met Sam at the two tournaments but he was very friendly and fun to play with. An idea I had was that if there was a charity or something that Sam would have liked to support, we could make a donation in his name. Instead of using the entry fee for prizes, we could just say that 100% of the entry fees at this month's tournament will go towards a donation to that charity. It likely won't be a large donation, but it may still be a nice gesture. Anyone have thoughts on this?

Here's a link to the obituary:

He wanted donations to his high school music department. I'm happy to take the lead on that.

The league kit arrived today so I will have some decent SWCCG prizes for this tournament. I’ll also retroactively give out some attendance and winner foils for the previous three tournaments.

One week out and it looks like we're potentially up to 9 already! (my son and I, David and his son, Travis, Jeff, Jason, Chris, and possibly Pistone) Hopefully Ryan and Andrew can make it as well. Lots of league points available for this one!

*Note*

The PC just released the Set 11 Preview cards Mitth'raw'nuruodo and See You Around, Kid. Both of these cards are now legal for tournament (which means legal for this event). Guess I'll pull my HB Quads back on the shelf; considered giving it a retirement farewell run at this event.

So I just found out about this, very sorry to hear about Sam.

Were you guys considering any additional fundraisers or anything for the family?

I'd be happy to contribute, or help run a memorial event if there is interest.
