Watch for the December (Friday and Saturday) tournament schedule to be held 12/7 and 12/8.  It is being faxed and requested today.

I am looking forward to November's events.  See you then.

Just a reminder about this weekend's tournaments.  A local at my house Friday evening starting around 7 pm.  I am expected (counting me) between 5-7 players.
There will be 2 events offered.  Closed Deck is free if the player returns the G/H deck in playing excellent condition.  The other event will be determined that evening.

Saturday (at the church) we will continue the weekend festivities with a District Tournament.  The start time is 10:30 am.  It will run until 5 or 6 pm.
I expect between 10-15 players to attend.

Terry,

Just an update about me and the group that tags along. Me, Jordan, and Chad will most likely attend the local tournament (there's a good 90% we'll be there, and will definately be at the District.) but Aaron cannot attend the Local, he can go to the district though.

Thanks,
Ben

Cool.  Brett cannot make it.  The kids from church might go to the district.  Not sure about Marcus.  Probably just you guys.  If you cannot attend Friday evening then no one will be there but me.  I might then try to run it after the District on Saturday.

I'm presently too busy/lazy to build decks, so I'd be limited to closed deck/BD, which I don't currently have the cash for.  I may come Saturday afternoon for Booster, but probably not tomorrow night.

Sorry, guys, but my December calendar has suddenly exploded with responsibilities, etc.  I am rescheduling the 2 December tournaments until the 2nd weekend in January.
Hope to see you then.

I can't speak for Bethany right now, but I'll be in attendance.  However, I don't see the dates listed on the Tournament Calendar.  Anyway...see ya there.

P.S.  It looks like Jason is having a Local in Tyler that weekend, so I guess those guys will not be coming.

We have been meeting and playing at The Life Church in Dallas.  It is located on the northwest corner of Alpha and Hillcrest roads.

Just e-mail me to stay in the loop.  My email address is [email protected]

I know this is rather late to post, but I am thinking of holding the postponed District Tournament on Saturday, January 5th.  Please let me know what you think.

I have an Elders Meeting on the 12th and prior commitments on the 19th.  If we cannot get enough players on the 5th, I will look at doing it on Saturday, January 26th.

Happy New Year!

With our first Texas District Tournament of the new year behind us, we look forward to the challenges ahead.  Sadly we face this year without 2 members of our playgroup.

Chad Soderstrom has decided to join the circus.  He will be billed as Jo Jo the Dogfaced boy and Mimi, the Bearded Woman.  Actually Chad sold most of his collection and is looking forward to purchasing his first car.  We will miss him but wish nothing but blessings upon his life.

We also congratulate the Denver Redemption area as Jordan Drott's family has moved to Colorodo Springs.  Your gain is our loss.  (Don't let him eat or drink anything with sugar in it).

Back to the tournament results. 
Booster Draft:  Buddy Dunn took first place for the second time in a row.
                     Ben Shadrick took second and Terry Markoff, third.                         Lots of laughter as Ben was stuck with orange and failed to see anything helpful during the draft.
Closed Deck:  Terry Markoff took first place while newcommer Daniel Burt took second and Buddy Dunn, third.
Type 2-2 Player:  A bit of a surprise as Aaron Burt took first place, Bethany Dunn took second place and Ben Shadrick, third.
Type 2-Multi:  Ben Shadrick came roaring back and took first place honors in the multi event.  Buddy Dunn took second place and Bethany Dunn, third.
There was a blow out as Aaron Burt won all three of his Type 1-2 Player games.  Jonathan Myers placed second.
Type1-Multi was also won by Aaron Burt.  Terry Markoff and Daniel Burt tied for 2nd place.

We hope to see our Waco and East Tx friends March 1st, when we will play again.

"Players!  Sleeve and shuffle your cards, please."  Our first Texas Tournament since...hmm.  Well, we are back.  My son just got married.  Wedding planning and preparations no longer take up my weekends.  We are reafdy to go.  Please join us this Saturday, April 5th, at 9:00 am at The Life Church in Dallas, TX (on the NorthWest corner of Alpha and hillcrest roads).

Out of state guests are welcome.  Looking for the Waco, East Texas, and a new Dallas church group to participate.  Ben, Aaron and Circus boy Chad Soderstrom will be attending.

Hope to see 20+ at this event.

I hope to host States in late May and Regionals in July.

Call or e-mail me if you have any questions. (972)948 2304.

Please let me know if you plan to attend the District Tournament this Saturday. 

I believe that the following probably will be attending:

East Texas:  Jason plus 3 or 4 from his play group
Waco:  Blake and several of his family and friends may join us
DallasFt. Worth:  Aaron, Ben, Chad, Sheika, Jonathan, Rohan, Terry, Buddy, a small? playgroup from an area church
Unsure:  Marcus and his sister Nika, Bethany

$2 will cover cost of pizza (lunch)

Should be exciting if everyone shows.

Stay tuned for news about the Texas State tournament coming in late May or early June.

Howdy Terry,

I will be there...Bethany will not (she will be participating in Trash Bash, an annual city-wide, volunteer clean-up effort in Mesquite).  I have someone else that may or may not be there.  See ya there.

Today's tournament was fantastic.  Four players new to our group joined us today.  Thank you Cactus website and message boards.

Results in the morning session included a first place finish for Aaron Burt in Type 1-2 Player, a second place finish by Buddy Dunn and a third place finish by newcommer and first time tournament player, Isaac Aldana.

Closed Deck results showed Jason Litchfield easily beating the field and Terry Markoff grabbing second place (only because only 2 players participated in this event.

Type 2-2 Player results included another win by Ben shaddrick and a second place finish by Bethany Dunn.

Six boxes of pizza were consumed in about 15 minutes during the lunch break.  A new record for pizzas and time taken to devour them.

The afternoon session provided some interesting matchups.  Four members of a south Dallas church battled for 3 rounds in the Type1-Multi-Player event.  When the dust cleared, Marcus Rutledge and Jhovanny Aldana shared first place while John Jacob Martinez finished third, just 1/6th of a point behind his friends.  All three young men were playing in their first sanctioned tournament.

Ben Shadrick once again won Booster Draft while Sheika Dammala place second and Terry Markoff just beat out Rohan Dammala for third place.

Finally, Aaron Burt won a grueling battle with 3 other players in the Type 2-Multi-Player event.  Buddy Dunn placed second while Jason Litchfield took third place.

We are hoping to host the Texas State Tournament at The Life Church in late May or early June and the South Central Regionals in July.  Stay tuned for more information.  Out of state players are cordially invited to join us.
