EDIT: I haven't been following UFS too closely, and missed the conflict with the PTQ. I have moved the date back a week so everyone can attend.
Hello there UFS fans,
If you started learning how to play in the Bay Area, you probably know Bryn Sullivan. He was the major promoter of UFS for many years, until he gave it up once Fantasy Flight took over. Always willing to teach, give cards, or run events, he was a do-er, and those rare people deserve to be cherished.
Last week he decided to end his life. Details are scant. There was no note or hints. It was likely related to losing his job. But none of that changes the fact that he is gone.
He was most active in the UFS community, so I figured that would be the appropriate way to commemorate him. To that end, I am putting together a memorial tournament in his name.
When: Nov. 9th 2013, 3PM
Where: Game Kastle, Santa Clara, CA (http://www.gamekastle.com)
What: Legacy UFS Half Draft
How Much: Free
The half-draft is a format inspired by the limited events Bryn ran, that hooked me and others into UFS. Each player will open 3 packs, and then draft 3 packs to complete the deck. Symbols will be ignored, and if you don't open a character you can use the universal fighter. I have a bunch of legacy packs, from Streetfighter to Higher Caliber, and will be donating them for the event. Gamekastle will probably be donating some prizes as well, so this looks to be a fairly unique event.
If you are interested in attending, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org . Didn't know Bryn? That's OK. Show up, have fun, and enjoy the legacy he left behind.
If you are interested in donating prizes or bringing food, please let me know so I can coordinate.
