Just sending out feelers to see if there would be interest in a Regional in Dayton, Ohio.
We have a developing meta of players out here (about 8) who are getting better with every game. I can guarantee at least one former World Champion (myself) will be there and I know have contacted two others in close proximity in the hopes of bringing them and their meta to the event.
In addition, I have contacted many regular GenCon Worlds attendees who live in the tri-state area to see if they could attend.
What I'm saying is there is potential for a strong and competitive group of players which makes for an exciting weekend of gaming.
If there is interest, there may be more side events and other activities.
