(apparently I'm not allowed to tag anyone else, so can someone please tag @mindmage and anyone else I forgot?)
Format: For our first time back, I figure everyone is most comfortable with something nice and simple: OTF Complete, 3 rounds.
(Maybe later we can try a TNG-Only tourney or something, but OTF Complete is what we've all been missing for a year, right?)
Location: I don't know whether Fantasy Flight Games in Roseville is back in operation. If it is, obviously we can play there. Otherwise, I'll offer JAMES'S SUBTERRANEAN LOUNGE AND CARD ROOM, in West Saint Paul, as a fallback location.
Dates: this is the tricky bit! Please answer this Doodle Poll: https://doodle.com/poll/z4kwn6hxag9vyze ... edium=link
I plan to have an official date on the calendar by this coming Sunday, so we can all start prepping for our return event!
Covid Protocols: I will check with FFG on this, but I presume that we will be required to wear masks until Gov. Walz lifts the mask mandate (which I expect will happen in mid-June). Vaccination is not required to attend this event. (I'm not even sure OP allows vaccine passports or whatever.) There will be no six-foot social distancing rule, since that would make playing pretty impossible (and, again, I'll check with FFG about their current policy on this... but, worst-case scenario, we'll play in my basement).
P.S. I am a 1E player. I am happy to manage the 1E logistics and entry. If someone wants to play 2E / Tribbles before or after the 1E event I am trying to get scheduled, go for it. I am even willing to let 2E / Tribbles continue hanging out in my basement after 1E is over. (But hopefully we'll be at FFG.) But, for right now, I'm scheduling a 1E tournament.
P.P.S. For those of you who are able to travel, you can AND SHOULD get yourselves out to @Hoss-Drone Kevin Jaeger's event on June 5th in South Dakota. That weekend is a blackout date for Twin Cities OP to support hoss and the SD community.
