Might as well get this thread started, anyone at the regional at FFG want to get one going for that regional?

Store doesn't have a bathroom they are letting players use. How did FFG pick these stores? By drawing names out of a hat?

I heard an 11 month old kitten that likes to lick it's butt was involved.

More likely store doesn't advertise they don't let players use their bathroom. That would be bad for their business. Course it still is once people know. We have a store like that in my town. One of many reasons a lot don't go there.

That's a lot of byes.

The store also won't provide access to the wireless. So updates may be limited.

Also, I'm not sure if there are more than 2 local players here.

I'm going to track attendance for regionals. So 18 for Morgantown, WV. Got it. I'll be in Fremont tomorrow. A week ago there were 16 sign-ups so attendance ought to be decent.

So... how's that bathroom situation?

It's in a mall, so you have to walk through a Sears to get to it. Pretty annoying. Better hope I don't have to go between rounds.

I knew this situation was going to happen. 13 out of 18 players win their first round. Talk about a silly situation.

For the attendance issue, TO said about 10 locals went to play in the x-wing regional because it was their main game

TO also tried to say we were running 3 Rounds Top 4 Cut. I had to pull out my phone to correct him on it. He then said 5 Round Top 4. I had to correct him again.

What the ****! If Mr. Domino had not posted the Regional insert I would have been unable to correct the TO. The TO had no idea that was included in the kit.

Also Round 2 pairings just got posted and they were messed up.

Hooray for idiots running tournaments. My Saturday would be a little less interesting otherwise.

Our TO showed me the prize kit last week. I took a look at the insert and pointed out the round guidelines to make sure he was aware of them. I was not aware that there was anything about prize distribution in it so I'll show up a little early tomorrow to make sure he's aware of that as well as the latest scoring change. I'm also bringing a copy of the tournament rules just in case. This isn't Magic. I'm fine with doing a little work to help things run more smoothly.
