Hey everyone! We just got back from the NC Regional Tournament this weekend and had lots of fun. However I realized that since I won't be able to make it to Gencon this year, that means its the end of my tournament season. Of course we'll be having our ongoing local tournaments, but I really enjoyed spending time with the guys from all over the east coast and I don't want to wait until next year to see everyone again. So, on the way home, Kris and I talked about hosting an off-season tournament in VA in October. Why October? Well we wanted to give people time to get comfortable with R&R, BoT, and Epic Duos, but not be so late that it interfered with peoples holiday plans.

The entry fee would be $15, just like regionals. Your entry fee would not only pay for the 200pt constructed tournament on Saturday, but also a Friday night Epic Duos Tournament for anyone who is in town Friday night. By making the entry fee $15, we will be able to afford some awesome prizes since there is no Gencon badge up for grabs. If there is enough interest, I can talk to some local hotels to see if we can get a block of rooms at a discounted rate.

If this tournament is a success, I would love to make it an annual event!

Let me know what you guys think, so I know whether or not I should continue planning it!

Thanks,
Roy

Sounds like a good idea. The Owensboro group has had an annual "off-season" tournament for the past 2 years around November, and it's always cool to see people again after GenCon before spring. Also, it will be very cool to have a big tournament after R&R has been released. I'll be sure the other Atlanta guys know about it and see what they think, but we should hopefully be able to get some guys up there.

I'm down, you guys are really cool to game with. Fire up the astrovan!

You'll need a flashy name format though so when someone says they won it everyone knows what you mean. I.e. Coolecticon

I like Octoberfest! +1 for Demosthenes

I'll give it a week or two before I decide on a name, but Octoberfest is the one to beat!

I did this type of event in Chicago in 09 and 10. I did rock con in 07 08 09. The fall time is great for events. So I don't see a problem with an event like this. Nice idea!
I love my new iPad.

Alright, its going to be hard to beat, but maybe we could go with "Minipalooza". Or a little more upscale with "The NOVA Fall Classic". Whatever its called, I'm there!

Well it looks like Octoberfest is gonna be it!

So, other than boosters, what kind of prize support would you guys like to see at this tournament? I have some really great ideas already, but I wanted to know what you guys thought about it.

I like Minipalooza the best.

Octoberfest is already taken and has no relation to minis. If you could make it related to minis somehow, (like ROCKtoberfest for a concert series), then I'd be in. But otherwise, frankly it's lame.

+1
Either in-store credit or customs of V-set figs...those are the best possible options for prize support, IMHO.

Store credit would be great if they still had a large collection of Star Wars Miniatures singles or boosters (or anything else Star Wars related for that matter). Besides, I like the idea of giving away things that are unique and that people will remember where and how they got it. We gave away some great DotF customs at our regional tournament. There will definitely be some of those up for grabs.

VA is a big state. Can you be more specific about the date/location for this event?

Their place is in Fredericksburg, I think it would be there, but don't take my word for gospel since I'm not involved in planning. :mrgreen:

Thanks Matt. Mystery Map sounds like it could be fun too! I wonder if we could run Mystery Map and Epic Duos on Friday, and the big event on Saturday. Hmmm

Boris - I am still in the planning stages, and have not come up with a date or location yet. The goal of this thread was to find out if there is any interest in the event. It looks like there is. Once I get the details worked out, I will make a new thread with all of the info.

It will probably be held in Fredericksburg, VA, but I will also be looking at other locations.

WAMPA is (Woodbridge Area Miniatures Players Aggregation). Someone in our group came up with that a few years ago and it just stuck!
