One of my sparring buddies from STL is going as well.  we are going to be car pooling together. 
Maybe more will join from that area. 
 
Are you guys thinking a one or a couple day tournament?

I am pumped for the event.

Wish I could come! (although without OCTGN, it's going to be quite difficult to practice.)

All sides ready? Remember no killing, maiming, soul sucking, or any other funny buisness. This is just a training match. Let the Battle Comence!

The current idea is to just do a one-day event.  That could change based on the number of participants or the availability of the players and judges.  I hope to get more details to you guys very soon.

That's probably because I'm the only one who plays one in the Indy area....

I have a doctor's appointment on June 15th at 3:30pm. I really hope it doesn't conflict with any of my matches...

So, unless there is a great outcry, the tournament will be held on the FIRST day of Origins, June 14th at 10AM Con-time.  We will be in the Gaming Hall.

WHOOOO!!

WOOOOO!!! So excited! Can't wait! HYPE!

Edit: CRAP! I have class at 11:40-1:15 on that day.

Edit2: Looking at google maps I'm going to have to leave the convention center for class at around ten minutes after 11 at the latest. It's closer to where my class is than I realized. Still this might mean I might have to cut my first match short.

Edit3: or wait are you talking about the WHOLE tournament? I can't do this because of class on that day but I already paid $80 for my origins badge! PLEASE don't pick that time for the whole tournament! I've been looking forward to this for weeks and I REALLY don't want to miss it!

Also some people work during the summers or have class or other responsibilities. Wouldn't it make a lot more sense to schedule this in the afternoon or evening instead of the morning? If you have to you could spread it out over more than one day.

if folks are having long waits for badges or getting in, this may be too early. how about 1pm. that would allow for folks to grab food before matches too.

 and thanks to the ad team for putting on this informal competition.

I hope not my class on that day doesn't end until 1:15 pm and then I wont be able to make it to the convention center until 2pm because I have to take the bus.

Honestly I have no idea why they would even think of scheduling this on a Wednesday morning unless they were expecting all the participants to be either school kids or from out of state. Some people have other responsibilities during weekday mornings. In fact I'm pretty sure most people do in general.
