Ben, that would be fantastic...for Aaron, but just a little more trouble for everyone else.  Hope he makes it.  It wouldn't be the same without him.

So Tuesday I had one of my guys show up and the parents for one other. I think that Vincent, the one that showed up, will only be there Friday morning. His family is spending that weekend in Dallas but seeing how he has to do stuff with his is family he can't be there the whole time. There was talk he may be there Saturday but I think it was finalized for just Friday morning Closed Deck. I didn't get confermations from Jose's mom on what he's doing but I wouldn't be surpised if he came both days mostly because I may be the only way he can get out there. I'm going to make a few phone calls to see it I can set some more names.

To those staying at the church: I'm bringing a few board games for that evening. On the list right now is Risk, Star Wars Risk, Pirate of the Caribbean Life, Settlers of Canaan, and possibly Settlers of Catan (it's not mine so I'm not sure yet) and around two dozen decks of playing cards so we could play any card game you can think of. We don't have to play any of them I just though it would be nice to have a few options.

I think he might be there (and yes, I will).

In order to help defray the cost of playing in this year's Texas State and Regional Tournaments, you may give me a comple and playable G/H deck in lieu of the $5 one time registration fee.

Hope that will help you.  It will help me, too.

Only 5 days to go.

I haven't heard from anyone in Arkansas, yet.  So, I do not suppose so.  Maybe Toby will carpool a group for Regionals.

Remember, both days will be long.  Bring snacks, sleeping bags if you  are staying at the church, money for lunches, dinner, etc.  Saturday morning a hot breakfast, compliments of the men of The Life Church, will be provided.

3 days to go.

Ben,

That is the plan at this point.  Bethany will not be there Friday (she has a summer semester class at Eastfield), but she is planning to play Saturday (she prefers Type 2 anyway).  If Marcus judges multi on Saturday, I should be available to play both categories of Type 2.

Judging from responses, I would think Marcus (except for multi) and Neeka will be playing Type 2, along with Jason, Bethany, you and me (and possibly Aaron)...we should have a good group for Type 2.

I was wondering if we have a count on people staying at the church and how many of those people have cars. I'm mostly wondering for dinner Friday night. Are we going to have room to car pool somewhere or just send a couple people to pick something up? I doubt we want to have pizza for 3 meals in the weekend.

Is there a Chinese place that delivers in the area? I'm just thinking through options.

Jason...I don't know if I will be staying the night Friday, but I'll probably stay late if I don't (and I will have a vehicle).  I would think that Terry would be staying around, as well, so there should be some kind of transportation available...besides WHAT"S WRONG WITH PIZZA?   ;)

Ben...Yeah, but if Marcus judges during multi that leaves FIVE.

The plan wasn't for more than 1 of Neeka and I to play T2, at least now that I've looked into building decks.  Neither of us has really played since Nationals, so accounting for FoOF in a T2 deck would take some time.

...and the count dwindles...


If we end up on an odd number, I can play something else...or judge so Terry can play.

Marcus...you mean you're not going to play the same deck you have played for the last two years?  :D

I've been playing it longer than that, and Orange and Jacob/RTC cause some issues with that deck.  If one of us plays T2, that will be offense, for the most part, I think.

Jason, I will be staying at the church as will Aaron, Ben, and Jordan.  Add to that the folks you are coming with.  There are alot of fast food options.  I am sure there is Chinese in the area.  Many places deliver.

I appreciate Buddy and Marcus for volunteering to judge.  At the moment I beleive Buddy is judging Closed Deck on Friday.  I will be judging Booster in the afternoon-evening.

Saturday, I figured I would judge the Type 1 and Type2 2 Player events while Marcus judges the evening multi events.

2 days to go.

Alright folks I'm heading to Lindale tonight (puts me 25 minutes closer) and then on to Dallas tomorrow. As things are looking I'm the only one staying the night. Several people haven't come for the last 2 weeks so I wasn't able to spread the word that well. One of my guys is coming Friday for closed deck in the morning, but he's spending the rest of the weekend with his family. Hopefully we can get more for Regionals.

See ya tomorrow.

This is a change from earlier in the week, but Neeka and I may both play T2 - either way, I'll try to bring a T1 deck so we can be flexible.
