News

News (8/3, 7:28 PM): The $300 OBC Cash Event at Comic City has been postponed to September 21 due to a last minute conflict of schedule. The head judge had to go out of town this weekend. Gathering Ground will be closed from Aug 5 through Aug 11 due to Gen Con -- the owners are running a table at that event.

Team PTQ Event a big success!: The last year record for number of teams in a ptq in the St. Louis area was shattered by 2 teams! 33 teams took part. In the end, Blue Springs-based Manchowder defeated St. Louis-based Piggly Wiggly in a very close final that did not end before 1 AM! Team results are here.

Press release (11:30 PM, 7/17): After some time of thinking, we are looking to move this site to a new webpage provider. While Angelfire has been providing excellent service, this page is outgrowing the 25 MB limit that Angelfire imposes and the decision has been made to look for another provider. Players are welcome to provide public input at stlouismtg@charter.net until August 16 at midnight. A final decision will be made by September 1.

BREAKING NEWS. The time of the PTQ Boston at St. Charles Fantasy Shop has been changed due to an unknown scheduling conflict. REGISTRATION BEGINS AT 11 AM, EVENT BEGINS AT NOON. Please be prompt for this event -- there is a possibility that there could be at least 35 teams at the event.

Hannahs Games DeckReg Sheet. The file is here and will be the version used at further REL 2 Hannahs Games constructed events.

More PTQ's added. Most of the suggested qualifiers have been posted. Some of the events are lacking additional details, so please contact the event organizer in advance if nothing is posted a week prior to the event.

Very good article for all players to read: While this article is meant for all players to read, it is really aimed at rookie (and very unexperienced) players that are planning on playing in PTQ's in the next few months. This article is dubbed the "REL 3+ Survival Guide" and the author wants to get to the point.

Happy Independence Day: In the celebration of the 4th of July Holiday, no events are scheduled on July 3 and 4th. Enjoy your BBQ and time at Origins, and we will see most of you on July 13 and 20.

Last chance qualifiers added to the Pro Tour: Read all about it in this article in the sideboard.

You can use shorter url again: I have it set up where you can use go.to/stlouismagic as the url again. However, the link takes you to a temporary "enter" page at the present time until I can get it to link to the actual page.

A little trip down memory lane . Remember GP St. Louis? This is a humor poll over various pictures. You can submit your own pics, but don't link it from Angelfire, Tripod, or Geocities b/c they block linked images.

Region website flyer (11:23 PM, 1/2) . With some spare time tonight, I created a new region website flyer where players can download and pass it out to their friends. You may download it here .
