godswearhats Posted October 2, 2014 Report Share Posted October 2, 2014 All, I'm putting together the calendar of 2-day tournaments in the Northwest Region that can be used as qualifiers for the US Masters next year. Unfortunately at the moment there is only one being held in Oregon and that is the Black Sheep Brawl in March. There are 3 candidate GTs in Washington (run by the Dimensional Cascade team) and there are 4 potential GTs in the BC area. I want to give Oregonians as equal an opportunity as possible to qualify for the Masters team, but at the same time I don't want to restrict the other regions to just 1 qualifying GT - primarily because bad luck at a given tournament could eliminate otherwise great players, so everyone needs at least a couple of chances to make it. In an ideal world there would be 3 GTs in OR, 3 in WA and 3 in BC, with some way for outreach with AK and ID (whose communities are too small to run their own GTs at the moment). They would be spread out across the year, so that people could attend at times that suited their schedule. Is this possible? Can Ordo run 2 GTs next year, not counting the OFCC, or work with someone in the OR WFB community to do the same? Or is there some other solution that people can come up with that would allow the OR tournament players an equal shot at qualifying, without penalizing players in the other areas? Or (and this is not meant to be a troll question - I genuinely don't know) does the OR community at large not really care about Masters? Do you prefer to play in friendly events like the OFCC?
