2017 ACMT Event - Sunday, May 28th, 2017
« on: March 10, 2017, 10:58:16 PM »

2017 Adam Crites Memorial Tournament (ACMT)

For those who plan on returning, thank you for coming out each year like you have been. For those who have never attended, well, you're just missing out on some great fun. You owe it to yourself to make this year's event and experience all the s#%t talking during game play and more importantly, the reminiscing we do about our fallen leader, Adam Crites. It's a 1 time a year event, so your presence would be most welcomed. Move things around, reschedule things if you must, but just get to the event and have some fun!

This year's event is designed to be faster paced and hopefully bring out some old time players who don't have to worry about the ever changing meta of the game. We're not criticizing the current state of the game at all. We are simply looking for a format that brings as many people together and to create a faster turnaround with each game. 

------------------------------


- What: The 2017 Adam Crites Memorial Tournament

- Where: The Wrestling Guy Store
               6085 State Street
               Huntington Park, CA. 90255
               (323) 393-3162

- When: Sunday May 28th, 2017
             11am - 6pm

- Format: Classic Cube - There will be no Revolution cards and no Virtual Superstar specific cards in this format (there will, however, be anywhere from 1-10 Virtual, non-Superstar specifics added in). Format details (for those who are not familiar) will be outlined soon.

- Fee: $10

- Prizes: Any combination of the following: RDPC Prize cards including new Backstage Autograph Session cards (cards actually signed by WWE Superstars), DVDs, T-Shirts, Autographed items, Books, Action Figures and who knows what other items! Grand Prize will be announced soon. I can assure you that none of the Virtual cards that will be handed out will be printed on regular paper stock, but on either 8 or 12 point card stock, very similar to that of an actual RD card. Considering one should be sleeved when playing, these will be perfect to add to your collection.


** More Updates will be posted here soon.

Thanks,
VC


Email/PM me if you have any questions. I say it every year, but once again, I would REALLY like to have this be the best turn-out yet!

Hope it's this year, because (and I say this every year), this may be the last time we run this event.

Will do everything I can to be there!

Adam is a true legend when it came to Raw Deal. His face would be on the Mount Rushmore on RD.

Thank you Velacards for continuing this great tourney!

Very true, though by this point, I'd say Vela belongs on that wall as well...  :)

Haven't missed an ACMT yet since moving back to California, don't intend to this year either!

Players attending:

With a start time of 11am (I'd be willing to hold the game up for only 30 mins for those maybe running late - as there always seems to be, so the absolute latest start time will be 11:30am), do you feel there will be enough time to add Supershow into the mix, following a small break after we wrap up the RD portion?

Thoughts? Suggestions? Ideas?

Depends when the store closes tbh.  3 rounds of a Cube plus a final may take upwards of 3 hours.

Let's remember that we're scheduled from 11-6. Even if we broke the 11:30 start time and started around say 12, then we'd finish up the RD portion around 3 - 3:30.

Plus, the store is always kind to us and let's us play through.

You guys decide. I'll make it happen no matter what.  ;)

Do we have a headcount on who/how many plan to be at the ACMT this year?

I'm still in!

Wish I knew. I always hope for good numbers and other than 1 year (at my house when a random person should up and Steve Resk was in town), I've always feel a little bad about the turnout.

A quick thank you to all the players that showed up for our annual event. Drew, Eric, Dan, Dan's gf (sorry, forgot her name), John #1, John #2, Vick and Creed. Also, thank you to The Wrestling Guy Store for once again hosting our annual event. As always, they gave us pretty much free reign of all the space we wanted.

It was great to see some returning players and even some out of town players join us this year. Each year, I really never know what to expect or who will show up. This year was no different.

Congratulations to Drew for winning I believe his 3rd ACMT (someone please correct me if I'm wrong). Such a strong strong player in every format we've ever played. =)

Hoping to see a complete report soon.

Thank you everyone. Hope we can do it again next year.
