Tournament Reminder: DC Qualifier and Draft
- Coming up this weekend! Not to be forgotten!
As usual, if you finish in the top 25% of not-previously-qualified
participants, you'll be able to compete in the Continental
Championships of North America (at GenCon in Indianapolis, IN on August
19th and 20th), Europe (Budapest, Hungary, November 6th), Australia
(Canberra, October 2nd)... or all three, for the especially ambitious.
If you're coming from out of town and would like to find crash space
with local players, let me know, and we may be able to hook you up.
There are also plenty of hotels around the area, if you prefer the
luxury of your own bed - there is a Ramada, for example, a mile or two
up Rockville Pike:
Or try travel.yahoo.com in Rockville MD (or use your own methods) if
you'd like to investigate other options.
There will also be a draft tournament (details below) on Sunday June
12th, and probably casual gaming on Friday evening (June 10th), for
all those for whom a mere qualifier tournament does not suffice.

Following this year's Qualifier, stick around for one of our ever-
popular booster drafts!
This event will use 3 Sabbat War, 3 Camarilla Edition, and 3 Kindred
Most Wanted booster packs per player. It will be the standard "booster
draft" format - open a pack, pick one card, pass the rest of the pack,
pick again, et cetera. Fun!
