Wounded Warrior Tournament: Charlotte NC
« on: July 20, 2014, 09:13:33 PM »
Mark this on your calendars. On Saturday November 8th 2014 at 2:30pm there will be a charity Mage Wars tournament at the MACE Gaming Convention in Charlotte NC. I'm posting this now and I'll continue to update it as more information comes in. But it's a standard 120 point spell book event. 3 rounds.

For months now I've been bragging about how awesome the Charlotte Mage Warriors are. Now we're going to invite you all to come see for yourselves our hospitality as we raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project.

Entry fee is yet to be determined(most like $10) but we're giving away prizes to all who enter. Such prizes include:

-Core Set
-Forged in Fire
-Druid vs Necromancer
-Force Master vs Warlord
-Westlock Play Mat
-Spell Tome 1
-Mage Wars Ball Cap
-1 4XL t-shirt(Mind Control)
-2 2XL t-shirt(Mind Control)
-1 Large t-shirt(Wizard VS Force Master)
-2 Mage Wars ball caps
-1 Large poster of the Force Master fighting the Bloodwave Warlord. It looks SWEET!
-2 Alternate Art Beast Master
-1 Alternate Art Priestess
-1 Alternate Art Priest
-1 Alternate Art Araxian Warlock
-1 Alternate Art Johtari Beast Master
-1 Alternate Art Force Master
-1 Alternate Art Wizard
-3 Large Druid Buttons
-3 Large Anvil Throne Warlord Buttons
-Enough promo cards that if you were Gambit you could take down a Sentinel factory.

I'll probably get some sort of trophy as well, frankly given that I've several months to gather more prize support and I'm ridiculously good at this kind of thing prizes are the one thing I'm not concerned about :) All proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Project.

The link to donate is:
https://support.woundedwarriorproject.org/individual-fundraising/MageWarriorsfortheWarriors

If you donate it'll send you an e-mail thanking you and showing your total donation. We will accept these e-mails at the door as proof you've paid your entry. The minimum you can donate to enter the tournament is $10.00 but if you donate more I'll throw more free stuff at you.

I'm still editing the site so bear with me. The important thing is you can donate and I can see if you did. Feel free to donate and pay your entry now or just donate even if you have no desire to attend the event anyway.

Silver I am going to sticky this for you.

It is a great Idea

I know I say this every time but I'll try to come to this :P It's for a great cause and it's far enough in advance that I should (hopefully) be able to. I'll try to bring some friends along with me :)

That's cool Winter cause I can promise you I'll have mine with with me ;D

We're still debating the entry fee. With the amount of prize support we're offering there's some discussion about a $15-$20 entry but I'm thinking we'll keep it at $10.

depending on what you want and how far you want to go, there is one thing we like to do here in Charlotte is eat... Just have to find/kniw the good places.

Given the hotel the convention is held at is smack dab next to several excellent restaurants then yeah you'll be good on food :) Two good mexican, good sushi, decent italian, decent chinese, and a few bars all within a 5 minute walk. Plus hey this is North Carolina, we got BBQ ;D

Though now you mention it I bet I could get some of those restaurants to throw in some gift cards for prize support.....

Since this is going to be bigger than our usual Charlotte events, will promos still be allowed?

Oh that morning around 9am I'll be running some Mage Wars demos/practice games if anyone wants to warm up before the tournament too.

You know Silver... If we have enough interest, we could hold some side events.  Smaller buy in, same charity (like $1-3) where you challenge someone and winner gets a promo card.  Simple, and more laid back.  Also you get instant gratification for the winner, could have those going on most of the day and I could help police that.

Not a horrible idea. We'll discuss it a bit with the other Charlotte Mage Warriors.
