Phone/Gadget Charging POOL Wanted:
We request all who have multi-USB charging devices as well as other types of charging stations + power strips, to share theirs at the venue. We are planning to set up a charging central pool (cooperative). Simply leave your contraptions plugged in at the charging central each morning when you arrive at the tourney (for the whole day) and bring back 'home' with you. We truly appreciate your effort.

Really thinking of me and my 2 older kids attending this year.  What is available for 9 and 11 year olds?  13 hr drive though... :-\
My son's 11 and there's probably 6 other kids here at Spring Creek that may be there in that age range so plenty of kiddoes :)

There is a amazing category called Type A for kids younger than 13 years old. It's basically Type 1 2-Player. In order to qualify to play in the event, player must never have historically won an official tournament in any level (Local, District, State, Regional, National).

Travel mercies for everyone! It will be worth it! Peace and Blessings.

Well that is good to know! :)  Probably won't be this year due to some other responsibilities.  But will start saving for next year, for sure.

We will be using Top Cut as in Ohio complete with the viewing room and live commentary. I had considered doing a consolation bracket in which players could play a couple more games. We will be offering quite a few after hours and during breaks types of play so everyone will get all the Redemption they can handle for the weekend. With that being said, I am certainly open for y'all to share your thoughts.

On the Cactus page it lists TEAMS as being $10 for the entry fee...is that $10 per team or per player?

I am almost certain that it's $10 per team.  Just confirmed it by seeing on the Nats registration site that the individual gets charged $5 fee for teams. Let us await Travis' concurrence.

Thanks for the inquiry Justin.

Peace and Blessings.

That's what I thought and it matches the other open categories ($5 per player) but just didn't want anyone to be confused.

It appears as though the interest level will not be enough to invest in shirts or playmats at this year's event. We will still be doing a playmat in the near future, but not in time or associated directly with the National tournament this year.

WARNING: Triple Post

So after I made the previous announcement, several of you reached out to me directly and presented a few options for the playmat to be produced. I have submitted the order and will be receiving 32 playmats with 9 being reserved for the winners of each category (Nationals Evens only, not RNRS). That will give me 22 playmats for me to sell to the general public (if you are keeping track, yeah, I am keeping one for myself). They will be selling for $25 a piece at Nationals and will be featuring the artwork for the upcoming Seasonal Promo, Majestic Heavens.

Past Nats champs in any category are hereby banned from teaming up! New teams requirement for previous Nats champs: You may team up with no one higher than an official Type A player. Nuff said. >:(

With some recent tournament issues as precedents, we cannot stress enough the requirement for personal hygeine, with emphasis on BO prevention. Please make sure to read the Travel etc thread's OP that includes the reminder below:

SHOWERING/HYGIENE:
Showering and proper hygiene are a daily requirement for all participants for obvious reasons. For church crashers and campers, there is a free public shower facility CONVENIENTLY located at Spring Creek Park right across from the church. Please make every effort to plan a shower sked. We will also have a couple of shower tents outside the building for urgent use.


Thanks and Godbless.

TLG is excited to be the official vendor at Nationals this year. We will have a good inventory of supplies (sleeves, boxes, tokens, etc.) as well as all the Redemption product available.

There will also be plenty of FREE coffee on hand as well.
