Magic: the Gathering in the UK
Just wanted to let you guys know about two events we've scheduled!
National Qualifier - Saturday 9th April
Tickets available from our website
The Dark Sphere Team
right then clown shoes - what happened was that me Mills, Tim and Phil went to hamilton hall at liv st and that was closed when we were there due to footy fans. As for the venue I wouldn't say it was ideal, but I would also guess that this was your first decently sized event and there were a few tething problems but as with anything you learn from the mistakes.
As for the buffet that was not as bad as Dan makes, out I thought it was better than just having fast food for about the same price.
4 slots I q'd
it was actually at the moment we tried to buy our 2nd beer, it was due to Chelsea, the mighty Spurs, Crystal Palace and Milwall all playing at 3 on saturday.
Might I suggest that you look at maybe hiring other venues around liverpool street for competative level events as it was a bit to crampted and you will probably get more players next time.
thanks again for a great event (for me anyway)
FWIW: I didn't think the buffet food was bad, not at all - Just I'd rather not be forced into paying for it if I want to enter your event, as I would rather have spent it on a Subway tbh.
You have been known to do your bit...

yeah, invite Phill and Jason, they will drink enough to make opening the bar worthwhile :)
sexual favours aren't always the way forward but I like your style
I still find it amazing how many people think finding a suitable venue in Central London is easy.
Or that holding a decent sized Magic event, and not make a loss without overcharging the players is peanuts!
It's amusing to see someone else trying.
as for venue I would happily supply a list of pubs around Liv street that are available for hire on weekends that would be able to accomodate about 40 people without a massive squeeze, I obviously don't know prices. As I said before I thought for there first major event they did well, but there are definately a few lessons to learn
Bigger, Cheaper, Better organised.
Wonder which will be most important to them...

I think it must be said at this point, that save one or two rare exceptions (i.e. pretty much just Milton Keynes), every time I go to a non Games Club Event, anywhere in the UK, it seems crap in comparison. That's even including experienced TO's, not just picking on the new guys here.
