Texas Chainsaw Masters - Schedule and Prizes

by John Corbett, Host

28th May 2017

Just over 5 months away, it's time to start making your Texas Chainsaw Masters plans. Afraid to be a trailblazer and make the trip? You won't be. Between "known Corbett associates" and child slave labor, the Tribbles and 2E main events will already have double-digit attendance.

But let's not bury the lead... The headline should be:

"$500 Purse for Texas Chainsaw Masters!"

Thanks to some corporate sponsorship by CEO Neil Timmons of Kestrel Properties LLC, the prize pool for the weekend is flush with CASH MAD MONEY!

Let's look at the prizes:

2E: 1st place $125, 2nd place $75, 3rd & 4th place $25

1E: 1st place $50, 2nd place $25

Tribbles: 1st place $25, 2nd through 6th (the entire final table) $20.

$50 for side event prizes

And also, thanks to Josh Sheets, we have a silly amount of Texas Chainsaw Masters logo prizes. Magnets, puzzles, coasters, stickers, etc.

November 9th thru 12th, Veteran's Day weekend, at the Corbett Compound (270 Young Rd, Denison TX). What will the weekend cost you once you get here? Nothing. Remember, food and lodging will be provided. A weekend full of trek, gaming, food (plus adult beverages) and fun. And you can even walk out with a couple of envelopes filled with cash. Not a bad deal.
