I am happy to announce that the Michigan PTC will be returning September 28 and 29, 2013. Our wonderful hosts from last time, Our House Games will be hosting the event again. I created this event to get a better head count on who will be attending.

Just like last year, I plan to have a Sunday side event which will be a random teams draft event. I would like to attempt to get the entire PTC done Saturday night if possible. If time constraints don't allow this, we will resume top cuts Sunday.

For fun other events, I plan on having everything we had last year. I will book a room at Buca Di Beppo for Friday night at 8:00 PM for the people who come early. My finances are a bit tighter this year, but I am going to attempt to get two hours of Whirlyball fun booked for Friday night from 11:00 PM-1:00 AM. I will gladly accept donations as it ain't cheap. On Sunday once the events conclude, for anyone who is salty they didn't win, they can attempt to dethrone Garett Brett as hot dog eating champion at Vince's.

Due to time constraints, The post worlds champion cards that include the UK champion cards, Nailed It, Cataclysmic Force, and Making a Killing will not be legal for the event.

The rules for the side event are as follows: (1) First, pick teams 'randomly' (2) separate team members into draft pods so that the fewest number are together, likely this will end up 2 of a team in a pod each (3) Clark, Maxima and Vespera are banned. (I don't think we will have ruler of time or ToV starters in this event though.) (4) after drafting the first pack and every 2 packs therafter let teams consult for a few minutes to make sure they are drafting in accordance with team strat (5) no maximum card restriction (6) character card restriction is in effect except for the defaults.

I promise to build a deck beforehand, so if I get indigestion and wake up at 4am, I won't go crazy and try brew some nonsense that's good for nothing but murderalizing Joe Horth in the 1-2 bracket. Hype!

Yes, that should be in time. Last year, we did the Buca dinner at 8 PM and Whirlyball from 11-1 and that gave pretty much everyone enough time to get in. I plan on scheduling the same time this year.

I want to go but I will most likely have work that Sunday, and as an independent contractor who will continue to make money by regularly showing up to stuff, my hands are looking a little tied without going for the much more expensive plane ticket option.

Confirming my attendance for this, flight/car/etc. booked.

Could I ask that Olexa/other pm me or update the OP with the Whirlyball location data, and any other addresses I may need to be aware of (dinner if we are doing that again)?

I'd just like to have everything mapped out seeing as how I will have my rental car and what-not. I am staying in Monroe area (closest to the card shop we will have event in) and am aware its 30+ mins to Detroit area where we hang out Friday night.

Also, I'm booked in. And have a car and most of the day Friday (will get to Detroit by like 9am) so I could be your transport, and you can hotel with me too. I don't go back till early Monday morning so if you fly in anytime Friday and fly out anytime after we finish Sunday (like after 730pm or whatever and before 330am or whatever ideally) I can play chouffer - just like in Montreal (I know scary).

Idea for Sunday's event.

A standard Team Format.

If needed, we could pick teams from a hat that afternoon and remove the "8 of" rule to play with random teams, or we would get a headcount of how many players be expect for it going into Sunday.

What do you guys think?

I like the idea of a Sunday draft day better, but that's me.

Oh yeah, and I'll be there.

Well, SLAM and I are hoping for a straight up Teams format.

What is everyone's expectations/opinion for Sunday's extra event?

Updated OP in regards to champion cards and side events. Besides the local Michigan group, we have what looks to be at least 30 attending players from far and wide, which include AJ Murray, Omar Chavez, Garett Brett, Ben Shoemaker, Dave Wagoner, Keenan Meadows and Matthew Curtis Turner!

Is it really a good thing? Wouldn't it lead to the idea that if there is something 'a little too good' it isn't just a single/certain attack? I.e. the character might be 'a little too good'?

I want to come on the record and say, aside from not having 24-25 vitality with a 6+selective block hs I don't think you are a little too good. Well, Birch the player is a little too good. SaltMasterRace OP :) Congrats again on your win!
