This is going to take place in NJ, near Princeton.
(Belle Mead, NJ)

Saturday, May 14th @11am:
1E Sealed Warp Speed IRON MAN event
LIMIT - 24 players
Prizes will include foils, rare packs, sealed booster boxes, and more!

This will be paired with a board game yard sale, and tutorials/lessons for new players.

Sunday, May 15th @11:00am:
MEGA 1E Sealed Event (OTF rules)
LIMIT - 24 players

Players will receive:
1 Sealed OTSD
1 Sealed Starter Deck II
1 Assign Mission Specialists
1 Q's Tent
1 Q-Flash
9 unique new cards for use in this event only
2 packs of Reflections
2 packs of Rules of Acquisition
4 packs of Mirror, Mirror
2 packs of Alternate Universe
2 packs of Q Continuum
1 pack of Voyager
2 packs of The Borg
3 packs of Trouble with Tribbles
2 packs of Premiere
9 "special" packs containing foils, and cards from many sets like DS9, BoG, TMP, and HA.
30 new sleeves for your seed deck
8 new sleeves (different backs) for your missions
50+ new sleeves (different backs again) for your deck (as needed)

The OTSD and a portion of the packs will be opened at the start (no draft), and then a few booster packs will be drafted between rounds, and time will be given for deck modifications. Note that players will also receive 9 event-exclusive cards to help with the limited environment.

Errata'ed cards will be available for substitutions if needed, and a replacement pool of cards will be available to swap out (randomly) PAQ cards that are banned, like Raise The Stakes.
(note that most cards that are banned on the OTF list will be allowed in this format)

Note that the limits are mostly due to tables and chairs (and space in case of inclement weather.)

Food will be ordered/served, as well as snacks, and these will be INCLUDED with your tournament fee.

PRIZES WILL INCLUDE:
DVD Box Sets
Special Star Trek collectors items/toys
Oversize card(s)
Booster Boxes
Booster Packs
Rares
Foils

A portion of the proceeds are going to DRIVE-BY DO-GOODERS

I have been asked to consider combining these events (the two major ones) into a single day so that someone could participate in both easier.

If I were to host it on a Saturday or a Sunday, which would be better/easier for attendees?

This sounds like a Master-level event. @The Ninja Scot , @LORE do you concur?

This is absolutely on my radar. I just got my second vaccination yesterday, so I am a go for travel.

It definitely has the look and feel of a Masters, but I will defer to Michael on what the Masters schedule looks like for 2021 in North America.

Awesome, congratulations! I got the J&J about a week ago, so I'll be good to go in a few more weeks myself... and my wife's between Moderna shots.

I want to have shirts made up for this event... and I think it'll be fun to open some of the packs I'm working on :)

Sunday would be preferred.

@JasonRed3 what's the best airport to fly into? (If possible, I would prefer one that serves American Airlines, as I have a credit on my account from them.)

I'm bummed this got pushed back again, but totally understand the reason. I, too, have an unvaccinated 11-year-old, as well as a 6-year old. It's a real wrench that I can't get them protected yet.

I have to bow out of this event @JasonRed3. It looks great, but gatherings and family plans require me to stay home that weekend.

Totally understood. Trying to figure out what makes the most sense.

For those who are considering attending this day... send me a PM.

I'm considering modifying the day's event(s) and would like to get some input.

Thanks!
