I sent in a request to host the Texas State Tournament which if approved, it will be a one day event at The Life Church in Dallas, TX (located at the NW corner of Hillcrest and Alpha roads) starting bright and early with players having two choices.  They may participate in Closed Deck ($10 entry fee) or Booster Draft Player (for $12) to begin at 8:00 am Saturday, June 2nd.  Participants, there will be a $5 Registration fee to help the host defray the cost of the product used.

At approximately (no sooner) 11:00 am two more events will be offered.  Type 1-2 Player ($2) and Type 2-2 Player ($2) will be held.  A lunch break of approximately 1 hour will be inserted some time during these two events.  As usual, we will send out for pizza.  A donation of $2 a player will allow you all the pizza you can eat.

The final two catergories will be held within 20 minutes of the final Type 1 and 2 games.  Players may choose between Type 1-Multi-Player ($2) or Type 2-Multi-Player ($2).  These events might continue well into the evening (probably after 8 pm) so please communicate this to loved ones and/or friends who will be providing you a ride home. 

I am looking forward to a record number of players joining us this year.  For you out of staters, know that the competition will be stiff as Ben Shadrick, Chad Soderstrom and Aaron Burt all plan to attend.  State promos will be given to all paid participants.

Please let me know if you plan to attend and (if you know) what events you will be playing so I may have plenty of product available.

Terry,

Unless I'm in the wrong year, June 2nd is not on a Saturday.

ATTENTION ALL TEXAS REDEMPTION PLAYERS!

I am truly sorry for the lack of communication and the delays in posting the Texas State and South Central Regional Tournaments.

I hope I have met with my final obstacles.  I posted the Texas State Tournament for June 13th and Saturday, June 14th.  Closed Deck and Booster will be on the Friday.  Closed Deck will begin at approximately 10:30 am.  Booster will start at the conclusion of the Closed Deck final round.  Please let me know, if you can, whether you will be attending either event.  I need to purchase the materials this week for both Closed Deck and Booster Draft.  Closed Deck will be $10 and Booster $12 to register.  There will also be a one time $5 registration fee to participate in this tournament.

Saturday will kick off with Type-1 and Type 2 2 Player events.  They will be followed by the multi-player events in the late afternoon (probably around 4 pm).

There will be a lunch break each day.  Everyone is on their own, but if you want I can provide all the pizza and cold drinks for a nominal $2 charge.

We have around 30 potential players.  I hope to see the folks from South Dallas, Dallas, the surrounding suburbs, Waco and East Texas.  A hearty Howdy to our Arkansas neighbors.  I hope you can attend, too.

I will be posting more information as I am able.

Hey Terry,

I'll be going both days and be playing Closed Deck, Booster Draft, Type-2 2 player, and Type-2 multi-player.

I'm not 100% sure that Aaron will be able to go, he is leaving June 7th to go out of town and I'm not sure when he's coming back.

If he is back in time, he'll probably play Closed Deck, Booster Draft, Type-1 2 player, and Type-1 multi-player. (not sure about type-1 2 player though.)

Looking forward to it!
Ben

Attention all out of towners and out of staters.  I do believe that I will be able to offer lodgings in the church for those that might need that type of assistance.  Please let me know if you plan to attend, the categories you will be playing and if you will need a place to stay (the church).

I might be bringing an out of town friend that used to be in our playgroup...

And yes, I will be feeding him sugar before coming.

Any guesses on who he is?  ;) ::)

My mom really doesn't want to pick me up and drive back the next morning. So if there are others planning on lodging, I'd like to just bring a sleeping bag and stay at the church.

If there isn't anyone else staying at the church, my mom said she'd come pick me and Jordan up. (99% sure Jordan is coming, unless something drastic happend and his family reunion gets canceled.)

CAN'T WAIT 'TIL THE TOURNAMENT!

Thanks,
Ben

I'm 95% sure that I'm staying the night at the church. I'm not sure about the rest of my group. I think half might come both days and others just Saturday. I'm giving them info this next week and should have an estiment by Tueday night.

btw I'm doing both Booster and Closed and probably both type-2 but I'm not sure yet for the saturday stuff.

Thanks for the heads up Ben. 

Buddy, I'll judge booster.  Thanks for judging closed Deck.  Play whatever you like saturday and I'll switch off withv u judging.

We will be sharing the church on saturday.  Men's breakfast will go from 8:30 am to about 10 am.  Then we will play the tournament in the main meeting area as you enter the building.  The women of the life Church will be having a meeting most of the day in the sanctuary and the upstairs classrooms.

Counting down to 6/13.  Only 10 more days.

Sorry for all this back and forth on who's coming. But, Aaron's parents might let him fly back early and stay with me so he'll be able to go to State.

So Aaron, might be there.
