I am more than willing to switch to MP Booster if all the Booster players wish to do so.

If there are some wanting to do 2P and some wanting to do MP, we will do an official 2P draft and unofficial MP draft.  8)

Will you be using set rotation?

Since we have not done a tournament in a year and a half, my thought was to run Classic for this one and help explain rotation to our younger players (granted I'm not sure how many will end up coming) and then do Rotation format for the next tournament.

I'm guessing T1 2P will be 3 or 4 rounds so with a quick lunch break, we'll probably start the afternoon events around 2 pm.

As someone who due to a history of medical problems is at high risk with Covid, Do we know the vaccination status of people who are planning to come? We'd love to come, but we also need to prioritize safety.

I have not gotten the vaccine, but I had COVID last year. I believe at least one other person attending is in the same position as I.

I am planning to wear a mask, and I can ask that individual if they would be willing to wear a mask.

Beyond that, I know two individuals coming who have been vaccinated and one student who I don't think is old enough to get the vaccine.

As I mentioned in the first post, barring a statewide mandate or a recommendation from the host church, masks are up to each individual.

I'll send you a PM regarding drafts.  ;)

Much as we'd love to be there, I think we'll have to sit out until we can be sure of safety. Looking forward to when everyone's gotten their shots and we can come, but until then we need to put safety first.
ANB is good. Change my mind.
