Good Morning, ‘Trek Fans!

In case you hadn’t heard, official CC league play will once again be returning to greater MN Land this fall / winter for our fourth season throughout the end of 2014 and into early 2015. For the historians out there, in our inaugural 2011-2012 season, Nat “The Beast from the East” Kirton claimed the title of league champion by roaring to life down the stretch and dominating the playoffs. Then, in 2012-2013 he went out and won the crown again by winning a furry Tribbles free-for-all in which as many as three other competitors could have claimed league gold. And finally, in a true nail biting affair, the reigning two time league champ and former league coordinator Jeremy “The Razor” Benedict were turned back by yours truly based on tie-breakers in a 2013-2014 season which saw countless high spots, most notably in player attendance.

Now, as we turn the page to the 2014-2015 season, all eyes will once again be on The Land of 10,000 Champions as top dawgs and rookies alike fight to prove they have what it takes to be a league champion… that they are indeed Tough Enough. With the baton being formally passed from our resident Chief Ambassador to myself, participants can anticipate a fairly smooth transition as many of our mores will remain intact moving forward. Just as in years prior, I anticipate the upcoming league season will be comprised of Second Edition, First Edition, and Tribbles tournaments with just enough alternative formats (e.g. Limited, Draft, & Block) splashed in as to keep things interesting. Schedules permitting, I am also hopeful that the Tournament Director triad consisting of Jeremy “The Razor” Benedict, “Crimson” Justin Kaufman, and myself will reunite to help spread out the work load of hosting the 12 tournaments that comprise a league season. And finally, look for bonus points to once again be part of official scoring in an effort to entice players to mix up the affiliations being played and to provide fuel for tie-breakers should they once again come into play.

As to specific events, the T2E Tough Enough league will kick-off in just a few short weeks with some furry breeding inside the spacious confines of the Fantasy Flight Games Event Center. Following this Tribbles and casual gaming fun fest with Galen “Lone Wolf” Sjöström and his zoo crew, we will turn our attention to the crowd pleasing and always entertaining Original Champion’s Challenge, which will see T2E Entertainment return to the lush R.H. Stafford Library atrium. This Premiere Only, play it as it reads, Second Edition constructed deck tournament has been a fan favorite for years, and in this the fourth installment attendance is expected to reach an all-time high.

With league play just over the horizon here in Minnesota, as always we are left with more questions than answers at this point. Such as will the New Blood keep the First Edition renaissance flowing? Will any invaders seek to stake a claim by attaining Frozen Chosen citizenship? Or will the entire league season once again hang on the outcome of one final game? Tune in to find out! Often imitated but never duplicated, the hottest brand going in the business today is T2E Entertainment. You gotta be there!

As previously mentioned, the T2E Tough Enough League rolls on with event #2 this weekend, our 4th installment of The Original Champion's Challenge! From the pre-registration, it looks to be a thick field as two time reigning victor Matt "The Original Champion" Frid will be returning to the infamous R.H. Stafford Library atrium for another Rumble in the Jungle with his sidekick in tow, Henry "The Chosen One" Frid. Also, a very special guest will be on hand in the form of Kevin "Big Kev" Jaeger, who will no doubt be riding alongside n.W.o. 4-Life'rs Nat "The Beast From the East" Kirton and Barry "The Genius" Windschitl. And overseeing the melees will be T2E Chairman Kris "The Old Pro" Sonsteby and resident T2E Enforcer Justin "Crimson" Kaufman.

But that may not be all! Will members of The Oddities, Matt "The Animal" Hayes, Ben "Mankind" Johnson, or Rylee "Golden Boy" Johnson also be making an appearance? Will T2E Legends Mike "The Natural" Harrington, Steve "The Full Nelson," or Jeremy "The Razor" Benedict crash the party? Or will the birthday girl Lillian "The Asian Sensation" Chan and her bodyguard Galen "Lone Wolf" Sjostrom stop by the announce table to provide commentary? Tune in to find out! Often imitated but never duplicated, the hottest brand going in the business today is T2E Entertainment. You gotta be there!

Good evening, 'Trek fans!

Events #3 and #4 of the T2E Tough Enough League are now locked and loaded, as the Frozen Chosen will once again be descending on Fantasy Flight Games Event Center in Roseville for an action packed day of gaming. In just over three weeks on November 22nd, T2E Management will proudly present Survivor Series, a three tournament free-for-all where only the strong will survive! Starting promptly at 10 a.m. with a Second Edition Standard event, participants will test their mettle in all three constructed disciplines: 1E, 2E, and Tribbles!

Pre-registration is just coming online, but from the look of things Jeremy "The Razor" Benedict and Kris "The Old Pro" Sonsteby will both be on hand, and the third member of last year's league championship Triple Threat match, Nat "The Beast From the East" Kirton, will no doubt also crash the party. But who else will seek the title of Sole Survivor in just a few short weeks? Will Road Warrior Kevin "Big Kev" Jaeger make another special guest appearance? Will the 1E New Blood, James "Heavy Metal" Heaney and Kevin "Kid Kash" O’Neill, make their presence felt in this their signature match? Or will Money, Inc. members Matt "The Original Champion" Frid and his sidekick Henry "The Chosen One" Frid show up unannounced and walk away with tag team gold? Tune in to find out!

Just in time for Thanksgiving, it is sure to be feast or famine in The Land of 10,000 Champions in just a few short weeks at Survivor Series. You gotta be there!

Countless members of The Frozen Chosen will descend on in pristine Fantasy Flight Games Event Center in Roseville in less than a week to vie for the honors of First Edition and Second Edition Sole Survivor. Will the old guard maintain their stranglehold on league tournament victories, or will the new blood rise to prominence in either or both disciplines? Tune in to Survivor Series to find out!
