The SWVA Gaming team is hard at work to finalize the details for our next major gaming event (April 9, 2016).
We are moving locations from last year due to some unfortunate circumstances at the Bristol Mall (uncertainty). We want everyone to know that all of the local staff at the Bristol Mall were awesome last year for all three of our events, and we very much appreciate all of their help. Its an overused phrase, but we could not have done it without them!
With our new location at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center (I-81 exit 14 - Abingdon, VA), we have a huge venue to bring you tons of gaming and fun. Their Grand Hall is 13,000 square feet! As many of you will notice, this will be a return to a single large space for the event, similar to our Lebanon location of times past. I know it will offer a wonderful opportunity for everyone to mingle and take-part in all of the events and activities.
Once again OptiNet has stepped up with major sponsorship and event coordination. Mulligan's Gaming of Kingsport TN is continuing their support of the event with tabletop gaming. The Tri-Cities Smash group will be hosting the Super Smash Bros. tournament, and of course, Caleb, Taran and Zak are a major part of the team.
We received a great deal of feedback after last year's events and we hope to incorporate many of those ideas. You will see more information very soon about purchasing tickets for the event and tournaments. One change we can announce is that we will be offering a spectator ticket this year (at a reduced cost) for anyone that wants to accompany an attendee but not directly participate.
