If this tournament is on a Saturday, May 7th, 14th will work for me. June 4th should as well. I have to find out what saturday I will be working in may, though I may have more sundays open during that month than Saturdays.

I'm moving back in May, but not sure of the exact date yet. I can commit if this is in June.

Justin, yes, Pandemonium. Only store I know of still in the area, and I didn't want to pay for a hotel just for States.

Mike, I'll be out of the country the first 2 weeks of June, but I'd be down for doing it after I get back if June works better for people.

format would be open constructed. you're welcome to use (or not use) whatever cards you like, but it's the modern 2012 format.

Aside from looking at the 2011 calender accidently, June would work better for me too. In May, the 5th, 6th, 26, 27th work best. for June, the 10th, 16th, 17th, 23, 24 and 30th work well for me too.

Turns out the only dates I could do in June are the 23rd or 24th. I'm out of the country before that and have a wedding the final weekend of the month. Would the 23rd or 24th work for everyone?

Iron Maiden & a State Tourney both in one week! Someone force drain me so I know I'm awake! I'm there but can't speak for the other RI player, yet. (If there is a 3rd RI player, speak up before I REALLY start tossing insults!)

Not really into the V-card stuff but who knows I might show up with regular decks just for the fun of playing...

Generic decks are still very popular, some of them hold up really well.

I've been sick and ended up not making it to the store this week, but the next time I'm in there I'll finalize the date.

Events have conspired to keep me from getting to the store in a while. If I'm not there in person this week I'll call them and get it set up.
