Weekly Update: New Official hours, Friday, Sat and Sunday events.

Hi Folks,

A few Quick Updates for the week:
  1. Open today for Early dismissal (2:30), and new hours:  Our Hours have been updated for the school year, and pretty much match the schedule for after school (Family run business and I need to get my kids after school too).  We are going to be running a quick tournament on Wednesdays to give the after school kids something to do.  Format will be Modern and we will play around for a little bit with it.  (I am also going to work on setting up a system so you can register your kid and let me know if I need to see completed homework before they can get started.  I won’t be able to do more then a glance to see completed pages, but I’d be willing to give it a try.) Regular hours are on the site, but they are basically 3:30-8 weekdays, closed Tuesday, early weds, and open late on Friday.  Sat will be 12:30
  2. Friday, Date Night Magic continues at 5:30 (5 for food).  PLEASE RSVP if you want your lads or lasses to have Pizza and a drink at 5.  We had no rsvp’s and then a huge last minute rush, so we didn’t have the pizza.  Also, let me know who is interested in Sat. Date night magic?  We’ve had a fair amount of interest, and if I get enough, we’ll start running it.  (I know the store hours say that we close at 7 that night, but that’s just when we stop letting new people come in.  ADULT DRAFT AT 6-6:30…trying to get it going early so the parents who also play can do so at mostly the same time as the kids.
  3. Saturday Magic:  1 p.m.  Legacy Tournament ($5 entry fee)  AND 5:30, Ben’s Special Birthday Draft: All Foil Alara $22 entry fee ($24 with sleeves).  These packs retail for $11.99 each, so getting three plus possible prize packs is a heck of a deal.  I’m playing in this one.
  4. Sunday Yugioh:  Regular tournament at 1, $5 entry.  Top prize: Wave 1 2011 Collectors Tin., Jr. (13 and under) at 2:30, no fee. (buy $20 worth of Yugioh stuff, and the entry fee is on me.)
Oh, and for the Yugioh players, we have a limited number of the 2011 Wave 1 collectors tins.  They are $29.99 each or both for $53.99

Weekly update–What’s going on…

Ben’s Birthday Specials Week. 😉
Buy 4 packs of any cards, get a 5th on me. 😉
  • Date Night Magic as always: Friday: 5 pm with pizza and drink ($20 with the draft and free card sleeves), 5:30 for just the draft.  Please RSVP if you are going to do the food so I can make sure to get the right amount. (I don’t want anyone to go hungry, but I end up losing most of my profit if I over order.  Pizza is currently from Bowsers.)  Let me know if anyone is going to be later then 5:30.  I’m trying to get the kids through all the rounds, but the closer we get to starting at 5:30, the better for everybody.   BTW…I’ve been getting a lot of requests for a Saturday Date night, and I’m thinking about it seriously.  Let me know if you are interested.
  • Friday Night Magic Drafts: 6:30; These are slow to get started, but I’m going to continue to do the Play or Pack guarantee for  those who show up if we don’t have enough to get the game on.
  • Saturday Magic Tournament: 1 p.m.  Format is Legacy, so any legal deck is fine.  In the future these will have a $5 entry fee, but for the first few, they will be on the house. (entry fee will help to cover cost of prizes).
  • Saturday Evening Draft:  I’m doing a draft this Saturday and next for pure fun, and to build up our status with the Magic folks.  Special discounted price…$12 without sleeves, $14 with.  next weekend I will be doing my special Shards of Alara All Foil draft.  That will be $20 instead of the normal $25, and will be my Birthday Draft. 😉
  • Sunday Yu-gi-oh!:  13 and under Tournament at 2:30.  We will be moving these to 2:00.
    Prize Tournament also at 2:30.  We will be moving this to 12 next week.  Entry fee is $5. And the top prize is an Orient Dragon card (value ~$50).
Next week we will start our regular school year hours.
Monday-Thursday 3:30 to 8. (Closed Tuesdays)
Friday 3:30 to 10
Saturday 12-8
Sunday 11-6

Thanks for all the patronage.  So far I’ve had to have a few quiet chats about language with the older kids and good sportsmanship with the younger (including my own), but in general the kids have been just great.  I’ve been able to steer a bunch of the kids who know the games better to help out the kids who didn’t, and it has been great to see.  We try and make connections with people who come in and are feeling shy about jumping in and introducing themselves, and I’m already seeing friendships develop that cross school, age and gender lines.

Oh yes…two more weeks until the Great Parent/Kid Two headed Giant Event.  Great chance to find out what the kids are really doing, without really needing to know how to play, since the kids get to play with you at the same time.  It will be on the Second Saturday after school starts.  Part of our big opening weekends.   One adult to each kid…and, oh yeah…kids, if your Mom is the one that comes, she gets a bonus pack for the team. 😉
