- AUGUST EVENT & HOURS UPDATE
by Nick TaylorWednesday 25th July 2018
- August is swiftly approaching and I'd like to announce some changes for August with regards to events. Firstly, Tuesday night will be draft night. This means every Tuesday night there will be a draft on offer. This allows for Wednesdays to remain as Standard Showdown whilst offering up a draft once a week for those wishing to draft midweek. Each Tuesday will start at 7:30pm with round being 45 minutes. Additionally Tuesday nights will allow players the option to pay the regular £15 entry fee or £6 plus 3 boosters. Please note that you must hand the boosters in to be added to the draft pool under official tournament rules.
Wednesdays and Thursdays will remain the same, with Standard Showdown on offer every Wednesday and Pathfinder RPG available every Thursday.
As always Friday Night Magic will be on offer every Friday. With the following formats available:
3rd August – Modern
10th August – Legacy & Draft
17th August – Modern
24th August – Legacy & Draft
31st August – Chaos Draft
The schedule can be found below.
As you'll notice, there's a lot less available on weekends. The weekend events have been really tough to get going this year, this means I'd like to take some time to review the best course of action going forward. We'll have a “Pro Tour Party” on the 5th August starting in the afternoon. Come down and enjoy coverage whilst testing for GP Brussels/Nationals/Prague, cube drafting or getting some tips/tricks on your deck of choice. Additionally there will be the Challenger Series Grand Final on the 25th August. This will finish up the Challenger Series for the year. Full details to be confirmed.
Finally hours for the store will revert to the following for August:
