We will be hosting our first ever PTC on Saturday October 5th @ The Gathering Place in Abilene.
Abilene is a College town, we have 3 Universities... so Hotels are plentiful.
For anyone coming down on Friday, hit me up and we'll make plans to go have dinner, drinks and whatever.
Jason and the Jasco Crew will be here so I'm going to try and talk them into bringing some extra goodies with them. Jason assures me they will be in town by 12:30pm
Hope we can get all the Texas players and those of you in surrounding areas together for this event.

Abilene checks in at a ten hour drive. Just a bit long for my tastes...

Let me know when you guys are coming down and we'll plan to go do something.
Also for whoever is coming, which events do you plan on playing in? PTC and Pre-Release or just PTC, so I can make sure we order enough pre-release kits.

We plan on leaving Sunday evening-ish, so I'm definitely down for a Pre-Release. Will it be a sealed or draft event?

Planning on a draft for the Pre-Release. This set drafts really well just like KoF.

Shinji, you should try and make it man. Haven't seen you since the Dallas Regional back like a month after I started playing this game. If I recall we had some pretty good matches that day.

Apparently Jasco Games set the Pre-Release entry @ $30... so I changed that in OP. The Gathering Place always gives out great prize support. So they will make it worth the cost of entry.

Our shop owner announced an additional prize the Gathering place is giving away @ our PTC and Ruler of Time Pre-Releases.

"As an extra prize for the PTC and Ruler of Time prerelease The Gathering Place will be giving away a custom banner randomly to one player each day! The banner can have any phrase on it the winner would like as well as some UFS artwork. We will draw after round 1 during each event, so if you don't win Saturday October 5th you have a chance again on the 6th. (Note, the winner of the banner on Saturday will not be able to win the banner Sunday.)
Just a cool way to say thanks to our UFS community!"

So yeah... more fun stuff.

Trying to put together a rough head count... who is going to make it and how many are coming with you?

If people are needing hotel rooms, if we can figure out how many the Owner of the Gathering Place will look into getting discounted rates at one of the local hotels.

Im planning on going. Probably by myself because my playgroup is lame atm. Hopefully i only have to drive to lubbock by myself and then hitch a ride with one of them if not jason.

Might be six? I know Shelby's coming, too.

I dunno, maybe? I'm sure Brian would have said something if he was coming to Abilene with us

So, just curious as to how many people we might have coming to this. Any numbers?

Well, considering that only ONE person bothered to pre-register online (yes, it was me) he can't really give you a solid head count.

Wait... what's that I see?

Why, it's a link! Pre-registration? What's that?!

We have a confirmed 7 from Abilene right now who have pre-paid with The Gathering Place (2 more are considering), Raikou, 5 from Dallas and whoever is coming from Lubbock (they brought 5+ Jason last time). Have been told Austin has a big group... don't know if anyone is coming and not sure about Amarillo either.

So right now 13 + Lubbock.

Tifer

god what a slave driverIronic, it is. :D

So, I have a random-ish question.

Does The Gathering Place buy / sell singles of stuff?
I've got a decent amount Yugioh crap I'm not doing anything with, and I'd like to be able to get rid of it.
Sadly, there's not really any place around here that buys them, and online is a pain.

a_dark_side_of_life

To the best of my knowledge they don't carry singles on Yu-gi-oh!
They do singles for Magic, UFS and Pokemon... though not sure if they buy anything other than Magic at the moment.

Tifer
09-26-2013, 07:11 PM
Oh, they carry UFS singles? Sweeeeet. :D

We are 3 days away! If anyone needs help with a room or anything, the store should be able to manage to get discount for you guys. Just let me know. Think they would need to book it today.
