The fourth annual Eternal Central Old School 93-94 tournament at Eternal Weekend will be held on Thursday, October 19 2017, at 11am, and will be a charity event to raise funds for Cornerstone Community Outreach Program. This tournament is open to all participants 21+ years of age, but you must preregister using this ticket checkout. This year’s event will have a hard cap of 180 players due to venue space, so if you plan to attend, please get pre-registered ASAP to reserve your space.

This venue is only .6 miles away from the David A. Lawrence Convention Center (about a 10-12 minute walk).
Tournament structure and length will be SWISS PLUS 1. 65-128 players normally calls for 7 rounds, while 129+ players would call for 8 rounds, so this will either be 7+1 or 8+1 timed 50 minute rounds of Swiss, depending on turnout. The Eternal Central Old School 93-94 tournament will observe the Banned & Restricted List found in the rules on the EC Old School 93-94 rules page here. There will be no draws allowed, and at the end of 50 minutes if there is a tied match both players will do a sudden death Chaos Orb flipping contest (complete details in our Old School 93-94 rules here). This is to keep the pace of play and tournament going smoothly. The point of Old School is to play Old School!
Please be respectful of the venue, the cards, and the people around you, or you will be asked to leave (and unwelcome at future events). Entry fee will be a non-refundable $25 this year, in order to cover the costs of renting a larger venue (and some additional supplies and surprises, to be announced later), and the remaining amount collected to be donated to the aforementioned charity.
