Quick reminder to please let myself or Pat know if you will need to stay at the church Friday night. Pat isn't on the board much so use his e-mail or send me a PM.

Thanks, and hope to see you there!

I’m pretty sure I’m staying over at the church. (I’m coming up with Master Q and I think they are staying as well.)
They seem pretty lame as fighters maybe we should challenge them to a dance off or a redemption game

North Central Regionals is just a few days away! So far it sounds like we'll have at least 20 players, and those are just the ones who've confirmed.  8)

Just received word that a legendary MN player from years ago is planning to attend Saturday afternoon! Who is this mysterious player? You'll just have to be there to find out!  8)

Although that would be great, he is not the one I am in contact with.  :-X

If MJB does show up, I will personally build him an ANB-equipped Flood Survivor deck to use.  ;D

Since I can't attend because of a wedding in Chicago, I'll make a few more guesses:

Chris Bany is as legendary as they get and since he lives in Rochester that would be my first choice.
Mike Turnage could show up to get some of the new cards
Pat Westers long lost son Andrew
Rawrlolsauce!
Last but not least, MNSaint

Someone told me that he's deciding to go to work instead of coming to the tournament, but if he does come, make sure he doesn't bring any pasta salad.  ::)

James also pulled a Wages of Sin in his Sealed draft packs.

Kye pulled a Three Woes in prize packs for Sealed.

I thought I heard of an Alstad pulling a LR Mayhem as well...

All six people in our van had an amazing time! Pat does such an excellent job hosting and running things. He is truly blessed with the gift of hospitality!

It was great seeing so many from our Redemption family! It makes me really excited for Nationals!!!

Wow, I didn't hear about the Wages or Woes!

I did pull a LR Mayhem in Booster (second time I've done that in four drafts with FoM  8) ).

Aww... :(

To be fair, it is much more fun when there's more than just 4 people and you get to play against different decks each round... ::)

For sure, it's also better when you have a deck that actually works in multi.

Very sweet tourney; thanks much to Pat and all!

I did pull a LR Mayhem in Booster (second time I've done that in four drafts with FoM  8) ).

That Booster Draft Mayhem play in our game... only in Booster... :o

Was good to put names to faces, play against interesting decks and gain fresh insight into rules and strategy.  Thanks to all who ran and attended, it was great!
