Taking another swing at this.

Any players in the Vancouver area, as far as West Vancouver or Langley?  Interested in starting a playgroup for weekday evenings/afternoons, possibly through one of the local stores for prize support.  PM here or email to: profligate74 (at) gmail (dot) com.

 Hey profligate,

I've asked the guys at Strategies on Main Street to get the playkit in and see about setting up some organized play events.  Would that be something you're interested in participating in too?

Cheers,

somnambulant

Probably won't be setting up any organized play or anything, but I'm regularly at the Connection Games on Renfrew on Saturdays (1pm-4 or later).

I've checked out Strategies and Core Games, neither of which seem too interested in running OP.  I'll try to check out The Connection in the next week and if no one else is going to support us, then I guess I'll suck it up and try to run some OP myself.  Which super sucks because I want to play, but I want the game to succeed more.

You can still play even if you are running the tournament kit. As per the tournament rules for TO Participation on page 3. Just need someone else to be a TO do your rulings. Now to get a tournament kit you need to have a B2B account to order them from FFG. Email FFG, explain your situation and they might be able to set you up with one.

Tournament Organizer Participation
The TO may participate in a tournament for which he or she
is responsible only if there is a second tournament organizer
present. This second TO must be present and announced at the
beginning of the tournament, and is responsible for all rulings
for games in which the primary TO is playing.

Thanks Toqtamish.  I'll see if I can find a second person to also TO if it comes to it.

If you manage to get something running at Connections, I'd be happy to help judge now and then so that you can play. I already judge other CCGs and I probably won't have enough time to sit and play through tournaments all the time.

Thanks for the offer. :)  I may end up taking you up on that.

The Strategies guy may have been hesitant because I'd already spoken to him about it.  Hoping to get something going there still. Spoke with him again today and it's still a possibility. Fingers crossed. I'll post here if I hear any more about it.

 The Connection isn't going to run anything either. Guess we're on our own unless Strategies comes through or I can convince Core to run things for us.

I guess we can also check out Magic Stronghold in Burnaby.  Despite their name they support other CCG's

Talked to one of the Connection guys yesterday and he said that they might have space for us on Tuesday nights or maybe Saturday morning/early afternoon. Connections is on Renfrew and Grandview (12th)

Yeah I might be able to make some of those. Saturdays more frequently than Tuesdays probably.

Just moved to Vancouver, would like to find someone to run with/against after finishing settle down. Should we get some contact list such as Google group?

I'm all for it, though I'd be relying on someone else to set it up.

Seting up a google group is pretty easy. I just made one: http://groups.google...uver-netrunners

Still needs to attract some regulars to the group for it to become useful though.
