2013 AUSTRALIAN BIERMEISTER NATIONALS

To be held on Thursday the 4th of July at Maloney's Hotel, you can find more detailed information about this very popular, special format unsanctioned event at TrekAustralia.net.

2013 AC DREAM TEAM COMPETITION

No matter where you are in the world you too can participate in the excitement of the 2013 Australian Continental Championships! Select a fantasy team of players and cheer them on as they play towards not only championship glory, but also prizes for you if you select the highest scoring team. Post your team in the 2013 AC Dream Team thread in the Continental Championships forum, where you can submit your entry, discuss, and ask any questions you may have about the competition.

DECKLISTS

This deserves a special mention. We need decklists posted online for EVERY PLAYER in the 1e AC (Qualifier and Final), the 2e AC (Qualifier and Final), and the Tribbles AC Final. NO EXCEPTIONS.

I still require printed versions and will collect them as normal, but I need your decklist attached to the tournament on trekcc.org. Simply select the tournament in the tournament system (or click the link in the schedule) and click on the STCCG card icon beside your name in the results*.

If you are having any difficulties in doing this, please ask your Judge/Tournament Director or your fellow players for assistance. I would like to see as many players as possible enter their own decklists into the system after the event. For every extra decklist I have to upload after the AC, the longer it will take to get decklists, results, and Dream Team stuff posted.

SUNDAY

All effort will be made to finish the event on-time on the Sunday, but history has shown us that with the 2e AC finals and side-events running in parallel, someone is almost always going to be left waiting. I would encourage anyone waiting for the end of the event to come speak to me about volunteering to help get everything sorted out. The last few years have been hectic and I hate to see people standing around waiting. Whether it's prize distributions, sorting out scorecards, or this year, directly assisting in the final result announcements and prize presentations, there will be plenty to do and every opportunity to get involved in the success of your 2013 Australian Continental Championships.
