If anybody is thinking that this event is getting more strict, i.e. paint requirements, time limits etc., at Barca's December 28 meeting, we discussed the possibility of this event becoming a National Qualifier.  

Most likely not this year but this is something we can practice with and get more used to official tournament standards. Already we are pretty close to Battlefronts tournament format & requirements. Let's see if we can make this the Northwest's Official Sanctioned Battlefront National Qualifier.  Then we can get more sponsors and more swag.

In exchange, we have been and are trying to put on more "other" events like non-sanctioned tournys, megabattles, learn-to-play, etc..
