The NYC Meta is happy to announce our 2013 Regional, which will be held on Saturday, June 29, at The Compleat Strategist, 11 East 33rd Street, in Manhattan.

Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m., with the first round of swiss joust starting at 10:30 a.m.  Things will wrap up that same evening, with the finals being played probably around 8:00 p.m.  or so.  The entry fee is $10, and Danny at The Compleat Strategist is now taking names for pre-registration via phone (212-685-3880) or email (complstrat@aol.com).  Those why pre-register by June 15 with get a little something extra on the day of the event.

While competitive melee will not be part of our regional, we will be holding causal melee and other warmup play on Friday night, June 28, for anyone who comes into town early.  

We hope to see many of you there!

Haha. 

I'm really hoping to make it!  Just gotta figure out the logistics and what not before making a decision!

It's pretty easy to get to if you take a train. Are you going to stay the night or do a day trip?

Bump to the top.  If you're coming in from out of town and need a place to crash, we can host 12 or so guests between several of our members on extra beds/sofas/floors.  Email me directly if you are interested and will need a place to stay: vaapad.vii@gmail.com.  

Additionally, we'll be doing a charity raffle to help out the Oklahoma relief effort after last month's torandos.  It will be a cool chance to help out a great cause and win some unique thrones-related prizes.  So if you're on the fence about coming, do it!

I, too, will be attending this event with 1 - 3 others.  Not entirely certain as to when we will be coming yet, but hopefully we can make the casual melee event.

Coming up THIS WEEKEND!

We currently have 17 players signed up for the Joust, so it should be a great field.  It's not too late to sign up; if you haven't won a regional yet this season, give it one more shot!

18 registered, would love to hit 20.  Anyone out there who has not signed up considering coming?
 
Also, A Journey's End has been released and thus will be legal.

I apologize for the threadjack, but since you're talking about it, have the dates for worlds been set yet?

 

I think it was announced last year that they were going to be Nov 7-10th this year.
