    1. TK, there is always a chance 😉 keep an eye out here and on Facebook, I honestly can’t say yet if it will or won’t be. However we are doing a bunch of events this year and the next tournament is going to be a much bigger one. Keep an eye on the site and Facebook.


  1. This is going to be a great experience. First time doing one of these events or might I say any event like this. “I’ll be your overseer for today, how may I assist you” 😛


    1. Hello,

      Unfortunately not in terms of prizes, we will be posting a more things this week as we lead in to the tournament. However at this stage a cash prize is quite unlikely. It is more likely to be hardware and giftcards and the like. Our next tournament in march/april will be a cash prize tournament however so stay tuned!
