Post-Reset Event

Post by brady1194 »

Let's have one. I have no idea where or when, but let's get the conversation rolling.

Brady - Awesome idea. I love seeing your enthusiasm. I'll can help organize this, or if you want to take control I'll just say you have my support: meaning I'll be there and push the event hard with my group here.

Step 1 MN: If you want in, you should let Brady know.

If do we have left in MN that's not a Rosemount player? Peter, Jim Li, Mark P, any chance we can get Cooleo to show up? Maybe even Garrett to TD?

I think this would be fun to have. It would give everyone an opportunity to see what the meta is like and what decks are out there. I especially think this will help the newer group of players learn what is out there and what they want to start building.

I'm game, depending on when it is. I'll throw out a date that could work - December 6. I'm going to the Vikings game on the 7th so I could possibly do something that Saturday. But other weekends could work too.

The biggest issue always seems to be venue. Who has the good connection with Legion that could lock in a weekend date for a larger group? December 6th seems as good a goal as any.


I wouldn't mind having a smaller event before then to just dust off the cards a bit once the PC finally publishes a list. Maybe just a friendly Saturday event on, something like, October 18th? I hope that gives the PC enough time to get a list out.

I think I'll also be down there the November 8 weekend, but I'm not sure if I'll be free long enough for a tournament though.

I would be interested in attending a reset event, or even a pickup game hangout type thing if people don't want to commit a whole day to a tournament. I used to go to Legion for Magic quite a bit, but haven't been there in about 3 or 4 months.

I'm going to call Legion. See if Nov. 8 and Dec. 6th are clear at Legion to hold small events.

__________
Brady, John, Everyone...

I called Legion. This is confirmed/booked. I'm 99% sure I'll be able to get Rosemount players to Volunteer for Saturday, but of course if you wanna just play for fun come and join us.

Sunday if possible, should be a must attend for everyone as far as I'm concerned. This is an opportunity for us to open up to a whole new audience and to not be a part of it or contribute seem ludicrous to me, but that's just my opinion. I've been in conversation with Peter and Garrett a lot on Facebook (Many others are in the message too) if you're interested in more details. But I for one am taking this very seriously.

I'm going to create brochures, create basic intro rules for new players (and their teachers), even give away free cards/decks to new players for Saturday's Demo. I also plan on visiting Legion on a weekly basis, crashing a few Magic Tournaments and advertising. :epic:

•What type of event will this be? (Tournament OR Game Day/Demos)
Saturday - Game Demo
Sunday - Tournament

•Where will it be located?
Legion Games
3128 West Hwy 13
Burnsville, MN 55337


•Which day will it occur? (Saturday, Nov. 22 or Sunday, Nov. 23)
Saturday 1:00 - 3:00
Volunteers will work one on one with anyone interested in learning.
Free Starter Decks for new players
Random games being played as demonstrations


Sunday 1:00 - 5:00
FREE 4 Game Tournament
Differential
Prizes TBD


•What time will it begin?
Saturday 1:00
Sunday 1:00

I might be able to come on Sunday. Someone will have to build me decks, and I need to check the family schedule, but it is possible at this point

Hey guys would love to make it, but we close on a new house that week, so I need the weekend to pack up from our old place. Have fun and hope to see you guys back in Fargo this Spring.

If you can free up an evening to swing by and see the new house, I could certainly sleeve up some decks for you.

I moved to Lakeville, so I'm still well south of you. The good news is I'm much closer to I-35, so it shortens things by about 10 minutes. I'll send you a PM with the new address.
