So I assume that anyone can play in Minn States on Sunday? Is this in addition to, or is it the consolation tournament for Nationals?

No idea but it sounds fun.

I lived near there for a few months when I was working for Pepsi and doing some labor relations work at the Burnsville bottling plant. I used to stay at some cheap hotel like that across from Mall of America, and since it was winter would spend lots of time walking the Mall... Good times.. Lol

Anyway, it brought back some memories.. And event weekend sounds fun. Minnesota guys always seem well organized.

I probably won't make it, but it'd be cool to see Nats end on Saturday to give prospective travellers the opportunity to sweep the weekend, IMO.

It's gonna be a long car ride for the Klown, but this seems enticing.

is there a maximum dollar value on that voucher, or is the pc going to pay someone's full way to euroworlds?
