Sunday May 14th 10am - 6pm
Where: Marpole Curling Club
8730 Heather Street Vancouver;
What: Settlers of Catan Tournament.
Ticket to Ride Tournament.
Open Gaming all weekend, try a new game!
Scheduled times for games available (never have enough players and time for your favourite 7-8 player game, now you do!)
Tournament and Door Prizes.
Who and Why?: My Girlfriend Waleah and I are members of Team Diabetes. We are training for the Reykjavik Marathon in Iceland and as part of the team need to raise $12,000 for the Canadian Diabetes Association. Since we ourselves are boardgamers we are running this weekend as a fundraiser for the community to get together and play games for a great cause.
Pre-Register by April 30th (Canadian Funds so it's even a better deal for you guys )
$25 for the weekend
After May 1
$15 Single Day
For more info e-mail: email@example.com or ask away here.
You can pay via Pay-pal to firstname.lastname@example.org or we can make alternate arrangements.
If you would like to add a game (whether an RPG, mini's or card), please just let me know and I'll make it happen.
We look forward to seeing you!
Mike and Waleah
In case you need a little more incentive to come up to Vancouver for the weekend, One of our local stores, Drexoll Games has donated a copy of the 10th Aniversary Set of Settlers of Catan to be be given out as a prize (among others)
A prize list for the weekend is now up at:
One week to go until a full weekend of Gaming Heaven. Let's pray for rain right
If you are interested in playing in a tournament can you please let me know so I have an idea of how many players there will be and how to "seed" everyone. We'll also need extra copies of the games. I'll be bringing my copies but we'll need a couple more of each. Can you let me know if you can bring a copy (that way I can say stop after everyone offers to bring one )
There will be a 50/50 draw on Saturday & Sunday. Tickets will be 1/$2 5/$5 and an armlength for $10.
There will be a silent auction with some "vintage" games that have been donated by Drexoll and various other's. If you have a game that is collecting dust and may be interesting to someone and you would like to donate it to the silent auction please let me know.
We'll have cans of pop and bags of chips for sale to snack on. There is a McDonald's, Subway, Denny's, Whitespot and a nice pub all within walking distance also.
For you naughty people who have NOT bought tickets yet, they will be available at the door.
A few details on the Tournaments:
Rule 1: HAVE FUN! Even though there are prizes it's still a fun weekend of gaming.
Settlers of Catan will be 4 players and no expansions.
Ticket to Ride tournament will be the Marklin edition.
For all 3 tournaments depending on how many sign up you will most likely be guaranteed 2 games and then the top 4 (5 for TtR) will play in a final game.
Here is the Schedule for the Gaming Weekend.
There is also open gaming ALL weekend.
Door prizes will be given out throughout the weekend also.
Questions? Just ask away.
