Boreal Community Cup Event Report

The Canadian Old School communities’ organizers hosted the very first Boreal Community Cup: a one-day webcam event on February 6. 

70 players from across the world battled for their community using the Boreal ruleset, effectively 4-Strip-Mine Atlantic. Thanks to the players and donors, the event raised $1,905 for Jeunesse au soleil (Sun Youth). And an especially big thanks to our judges, David Lachance-Poitras and Robert Hinrichsen, who put in a lot of work to make sure the event didn’t go too off the rails.

Announcing the Boreal Community Cup

Canadian Old School communities’ organizers will be hosting the very first Boreal Community Cup: a one-day webcam event on February 6. Canadian Old School communities (including Capital Chaos) will be competing with others to win the Cup. An entire community, and not a person, wins the Cup and communities get points for their performance in the Swiss, spice and their use of their Community card (see below). Also, the winning community picks the charity.

Capital Chaos Online Championship – Event

We did it! We hosted 33 Old School magicians for a one-day, 6-round webcam tournament. We sent $350 to the Ottawa Food Bank, earmarked for COVID-19 relief.

We really appreciate those who took the time to play in the event as we adjust to our new normal.

I can’t say the event went without hiccups. We were planning on using Wizards’ event software and it turns out some features were locked, so we scrambled to find a solution before the tournament started. Between that, and a few technical difficulties as people got used to their setups, we had a late start. Thank you for not giving us too much of a hard time about it.

Dazed and Fused-Con 2020 – Announcement

Dazed and Fused-Con is postponed until further notice. For now, we will be running an online tournament.

Last year’s Dazed and Fused-Con helped bring new players to the community. We want to do it all over again, but better.

We will be playing in the basement of The Clocktower Brew Pub Glebe, 575 Bank Street, Ottawa. The area will only be used by the event and we will have a dedicated server.

There will be two organized events this year: Old School and Premodern. Proceeds will go to the Ottawa Food Bank.
