Hello MTG peeps,
This is just a reminder that you may want to yatter to your local gaming store about attending the upcoming Gatecrash PreRelease just in case they are taking Guild Pack reservations. You don't want to show up on the day of the event just to find out there's no room at the Inn. During the last Magic: the Gathering PreRelease event (for Return to Ravnica), Selesnya was in short supply and some players had to go with their second choice of guild.
Here's a round up of the Gatecrash PreRelease Events going down at our local gaming store - OMG! Games here in Barrie, Ontario (near Georgian College).
