Blessings All!

Rumor has it that the 25th Annual Nats goes back to the East!

We are smelling upper or lower South East.

Start saving your change and 2 dollars a day. Start doing more daily good deeds towards your better halves and kids and grandkids and great grandkids for travel approval and blessings!

We urge each active player to TEACH REDEMPTION TO AT LEAST ONE PLAYER A MONTH.

Be active on the Online Gaming Portals.

Gaming hosts will try their best to fill the tourney calendar with at least one local tourney per month. Be the next new Redemption gaming host!

Not sure, but I did suggest to Gabe about having it here in Delaware.

While it hasn't been in Minnesota for 4 years (5 by next year) the recent string of centralized Nats means it's more likely to be on one of the coasts. Although I too certainly wouldn't mind a Minnesota Nats again.  ;D

Knoxville is on the short list for 2019.  I already have an application in hand from Chris to host Aug 1 - 3.  I would not be able to make those dates as I will be in Lancaster, PA from July 28 to Aug 2nd.  I don't need to be there but, I would hate to miss two Nationals in a row.  I am inclined to move the dates to the weekend before or after if hosted in Knoxville.

Another option (if we have a host) would be near Lancaster, PA or along I-81 between Chambersburg, PA and Johnson City, TN. Susan and I could catch Saturday Aug 3rd.


Blessings,
Rob

I talked to my sister in law last night and she said we could probably use her church next year. She did ask me to ask other Nats hosts what the cost usually is to use the facilities? I told her I would ask around as I am new to hosting and don't know costs. If anyone could help that would be vreat! I would like to try and get Lancaster, Pa as our Nats venue for next year!

I feel like it would be wise for nationals to land in Tennessee to give a solid chunk of the player base a distance break.

As the 25th Anniversary Nats, it would be cool it could start a couple of days early. You could spend those days focusing on legacy formats.  Something like

Tuesday:      Redemption: the First Ten years (up through 10th Anniversary starters)
                   T1-2P and T2-2P tournaments (morning)
                   10th Anniversary Sealed (afternoon)

Wednesday:  Redemption: Age of Tin (everything before 4th Edition starters)
                   T1-2P and T2-2P tournaments (morning)
                   FoOFster/RoAster draft (afternoon)

Logistically this may not work out, but it would be a nice tribute if it could.

Even if it couldn't run for extra days I really like that idea! Maybe those could be the side events for the 25th anniversary (instead of Iron Man, garbage sealed, Type-half, etc).

I know myself and a few others were already hoping to go a day early so having side events on those days would be a nice bonus!
