CaliCon III - Sept. 12th & 13th 2009

This year is gearing up to be the best CaliCon ever! Over the years CaliCon has evolved from a small gathering of friends/AGoT players to a large scale tournament boasting 20+ players from all over the state including world class talent like 2005 World Champion, John Bruno and local KublaCon legend, Kevin Yin. Both previous years the covetted CaliCon Cup, the first place prize, has been claimed by Mr. Bruno, but with his recent withdrawl from the AGoT scene, this years Cup will be graced with a new champion's name. Will it be yours?

CaliCon is a wonderful event for all levels of players, from beginner to advanced to Kevin (who quite frankly is in a league of his own). We encourage casual, friendly tournament play while offering that competitive edge every card player desires. Come test your skills, learn a trade secret or two and rediscover why this is "The Only Game that Matters."

This event will be split into 2 Championship Events over the weekend of Saturday the 12th and Sunday the 13th of September. The first day (Sat.) will be the Joust Championship (see below) and is scheduled to be held at Black Diamond Games in Concord, CA. Here is the info for the store:

1950 Market Street
Suite E
Concord, CA 94520
925-681-0600

The second day will be the Melee Championship (see below) and will be held at Cha0s' home in Brentwood, CA. Here is the info for my house:

2524 Albertine Lane
Brentwood, CA 94513
925-301-5329

* Please note this split location is tentative and if needed can be altered if logistics become too difficult. Please post concerns as soon as possible. Also please note that I have 2 spare rooms available on a first come first serve basis, as well as two couches and an air mattress...and plenty of floor space if you want to rough-it.


Here are all the specs you will need to know about this event:

CaliCon Joust Championship

Compete head-to-head in the ultimate showdown of the Joust Championship on Sunday, September 12th, at 11:00 AM.(Registration begins at 10:00 AM, please report to the TO early if you are planning on participating in this tournament, as any player not registered once the tournament has begun will not be able to compete in the event.) Players will compete against each other head-to-head, through several preliminary Swiss rounds (depending on attendance), cutting to a single-elimination top four. The final four will play off against each other until only one player remains. This player will be crowned the A Game of Thrones LCG CaliCon Joust Champion.

The Joust Champion, in addition to other prizes, will get his/her name engraved on the CaliCon Cup trophy.
