March GT Update

This is a brief update about the GT.  We are in the peak of debate season right now, so I don’t really have time to post too much.  After this week, however, it is go time on giving you updated GT coverage.

Our Friday night events will be held at the Game Shoppe, which I reviewed back in the fall here.  This gives an off-school grounds venue for the open and specialist gaming, hopefully making an enjoyable Friday evening.  They have a ton of space and looks to be a great night of gaming.  The Game Shoppe has been very supportive of the Bugeater GT, and I’m very appreciative.

Good news on two levels: 1) We already have $1700+ in prizes.  2) Most of those were donated by Fantasy Flight Games, Black Library, Forgeworld, et cetera., and because I didn’t have to purchase those I’ve revised my expense estimates.  Because expenses are down, I’m keeping GT ticket prices at $45.  Next year, if costs stay low, I’ll push it down to $40.  This is a fundraiser, so it has to generate some money, but I want to find the right balance between giving money to the debate team and encouraging people to attend.

There are a few spaces left in fantasy, and healthy space left in the 40k bracket (registration is dead tied in both divisions, but I planned on double the 40k spaces).

More updates to come.
