Hey Folks, in response to a few other things shifting around I’ve had to make a couple changes to my PTQ schedule for Amsterdam round.
Most notably, the PTQ in Madison is shifting to the day after MMS Madison to June 13th. Then the first Amsterdam PTQ in MN is shifting to May 29th. The final PTQ for Amsterdam on my schedule is Holding steady at July 3rd.
Update your calendars and see you there!
Mike has shuffled a ton of his events to accommodate the MMS move, mostly due to venue issues.. the MMS in Pittsburgh cancelled for the snow-pocalypse has been rescheduled to 07/17/10. Same location as the previous one was scheduled. those of you close to mikes area and may be attending PTQs and other MMS events, note that PTQ dates may have changed to make the squeezes happen; the Columbus MMS is now moved to 6/19 with a PTQ the day after on 6/20.
full details will be posted on http://www.magicmastersseries.com very soon!
What a couple crazy weeks!
Lindsey and I got back from the MC2 cruise and were home just about long enough to wash our clothes, respond to the critical emails that had piled up then off we went to Pro Tour San Diego!
MC2 was an ENORMOUS amount of fun! Check out Evan Erwin’s Magic show! MC3 reservations are open on the MC3 page under the magic header. We’ve already got a bunch of people signed up for it and spots WILL be limited. I’ve spoken with Brian Kibler about coming aboard to be our VIP and he’s said as long as a PT isn’t scheduled on top of the event (which I’ve gotten assurances there won’t be!) He’d be delighted to come! We should have that locked up in the next couple of weeks!
PT San Diego was a great show with lots of folks showing up. We blew the last PT San Diego out of the water for attendance at Public Events. Despite the good sized crowds, it was among the smoothest events ever! Thanks to all the judge crew and operations staff who worked so hard to show the players a great time!
Next up for us is the Midwest Masters Series event in minneapolis. TCG player.com is sending the GGs live crew out for some great video and event reports.
We’ll have some great vendors onsite buying and selling and trading with you:
the one and only, Dan Bock
So join us for Legion events first of 3 events in the Midwest Masters Series where you can win your share in over $4000 worth of cash and prizes, a free Gen Con 2010 Pass and your invitation to play for $10,000 in cash for the MMS finale AT Gen Con 2010 in Indianapolis!
We’re also gearing up for our first in the Wizard World Comic Con series of gaming events with our first event in Toronto the last week of March (the 26th – 28th). The Wizard World home page has all the details which include special guest appearances by dozens of artists, and actors… Eliza Dushku? yes, please, thanks!
The next Wizard Comic Con will be in Anaheim California mid April and will feature an MtG: Rise of Eldrazi Prerelease, increased Yu-Gi-Oh! events and as much other stuff as we can shove into it!
The Midwest Masters Series Open event in Pittsburgh is being postponed due to a major storm front coming through the area. Weather.com is predicting up to 2 feet of snow to drop in the area. After considering the options we feel it would be unsafe to ask players and judges to try to drive to the event – therefore we are postponing the event until a future date. The Pittsburgh event is not being cancelled, it will occur at a later date. The re-scheduled date and location information will be posted within a week and you will be able to find that information here at www.magicmasterseries.com and www.professional-events.com
It is my pleasure to announce the next Magic Cruise! we’re about to embark on MC2 in just a few short days, but I’ve already got next years worked out so why not spoil it!
Evan Erwin is going to join us again (I don’t think you could keep him away!) and be sure to check the Magic show in upcoming weeks for his Cruise summary show. I’ve got some feelers out for other VIPs to join us on the cruise, and I’m sure we’ll bring someone fantastic!
the basic cruise information and important dates are posted now on the MC3 page now, expect updates including Cruise Qualifier locations and Tournament Package prices once we return from MC2!
