Gaming for a Good Cause

9:15am 22 May 2015
100 point X-Wing tournament
300 point Epic X-Wing tournament
2B Munro Street, Hawthorn East
Entry $30, with 100% of entry donated to charity


The Monday Knights wargames club are proud to present Gaming for a Good Cause, a very special tournament event. This will be a day of fast and fun gaming in a relaxed atmosphere, with 100% of entrance fees raising money for a charity very close to our hearts.

This event will feature two X-Wing tournaments: a standard event, and an Epic X-Wing tournament. It will be held at the Auburn Bowls Club, at 2B Munro Street, Hawthorn East, on Sunday 22 May.

Entrants to the standard tournament should bring 100 point fleets, and will play four rounds, of one and half hours each. The Fantasy Flight Games tournament rules will be used, available from their website. But due to time constraints there will not be a cut to the top. Instead, the winner will be chosen based on scores after round four. If at the end of the event two players are tied in score, then margin of victory will be used to decide the winner. If it's still a tie, the scores of their respective opponents will be counted to determine who fought the "harder" tournament. If that is also a tie, then the winner will be chosen based on who had used fewer points in their squad creation. If that also results in a tie, players will be asked to sing the Swedish national anthem, with a winner chosen by popular vote. If that doesn't work, we'll dice for it.

For the Epic X-Wing tournament, players should bring 300 point fleets, with up to 5 epic points. The event will use the standard Fantasy Flight Games Epic tournament rules, available in PDF from their website. It will be three rounds, of two and half hours. Countback in the event of a tie will mirror that above for the standard tournament.

Both events will begin at 9:30, with players asked to arrive at least as early as 9:15 for registration. Players are also asked to please email the organiser, Tyler Jefferson, before the day to let him know you'll be coming, and which tournament you'll be playing in. This is so that tables can be setup in the right numbers on the day. Emailing a week or more in advance would be extremely helpful. The address is absolutelyaveragewargamer@gmail.com

Entry is $30, payable in cash on the day. 100% of all entry money will be donated to the Parent Project MD, a charity that funds research into Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Duchenne muscular dystrophy is the most common fatal genetic disorder diagnosed in childhood. It occurs across all races and cultures. Duchenne results in progressive loss of strength. The progressive muscle weakness leads to serious medical problems, particularly issues relating to the heart and lungs. Young men with Duchenne typically live into their late 20s. Although there are medical treatments that may help slow its progression, there is currently no cure for Duchenne. However, new breakthroughs could improve quality of life and significantly extend potential life expectancy. Now is a crucial time in the research into this condition, which is what the Parent Project MD are funding. This charity has been chosen in honour of our friend and member, Fredrick Bergstrom, and his brave son Leo.

You can learn more about this condition and the fight to end it here: http://www.parentprojectmd.org

Because the Auburn Bowls Club is a licensed venue and alcohol will be on sale throughout the day, any players under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a legal guardian.

We hope to see you there on the day, rolling dice for a good cause!

I've seen a good few League members playing X-Wing and Epic X-Wing on occasion. I don't know if any of you have dipped your toes into the competitive scene. But this is going to be a very casual event, and it's a charity very close to our hearts. Especially I'm sure for those of you who know Freddie and his family. So if there's any interest, you're all more than welcome!

One week out from the event, and between those marked as attending on the Facebook event page and emails, it looks like we'll have decent numbers. If you're thinking of dropping in for a day of gaming, with the money raised going to a great cause, shoot me an email.
