Grand Prix Toronto !

Happy Friday MTG peeps,

We'll be off to our local gaming store, OMG! Games this evening and we already know what all our friends will be talking about - GP Toronto!

This weekend (Friday May 1st to Sunday May 3rd), just about an hour south of us here in Barrie, is the premier Magic: the Gathering event tournament of the year - Grand Prix Toronto, Canada.  Being held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, just a spit from the iconic CN Tower, 2,200 players will slug it out in standard constructed format to determine the Champion.  Our hope is that the crown goes to a fellow Canadian but we know that some of the best players from around the globe will be in attendance and competition will be fierce.

Here's the 4.1.1. for ya now - 
GP Toronto General Registration — $60.00 
GP Toronto Sleep-in Special Registration — $80.00 
GP Toronto Premium Registration — $110.00 

Doors open to the public:
