What the Funk?
« on: November 30, 2017, 11:15:02 AM »
Hello everyone! Just an update with our event just in case you're not in the Discord group and want more info.

Friday we are working on something for us all to do. I wanna give time for everyone to look around at the vendors and such but if enough people wanna play raw deal this day we will have our room opened and may run an event this day as well. I have been told our fellow Canadians will be attending so after the con if anyone wants to come to my place have a few beers and play that is an option too. I have a spare room that fits roughly 3-4 6ft tables with still enough room for us all to be comfortable in. Im actually thinking of turning it into a game room for my local raw deal tournaments we hold each month. I literally can walk from the venue to my house in 5 minutes or less. We are also down near the bar scene/resturants.

Venue: Tax Slayer Center
Location: Moline Illinois
Date: June 23rd 2018
Start time: 10am signups
Format: Virtual Classic
Entry Fee: $45 (considering the cost for Gencon this is $45 for 2 days compared to $45 a day at Gencon.)
1st Prize: I decided a custom championship would be a lot more acceptable. So I will be giving away the 1st ever Planet Funk Con Raw Deal Championship belt!!

Other prizes: we will still be handing out prizes left and right everyone will walk away with something!! This is surely what Im hoping to be the biggest event of the year!


Special Guest: It was very unfortunate. I know we were in talks with Foley negotiating with his agent and suddenly they decided to take another offer from someone else so sadly Foley will not be present. Im sorry we had really special plans for him. However, if all goes good this year the Con REALLY want him for next year.

Moline is about 2 1/2 hours from Chicago.

This is a pretty good sized venue. I may get a bigger room as well depending on the turn out. They are Going to have video game events, MTG, DBZ super, cosplay contest etc etc.

For top prize I am going to try and get a replica WWE championship belt in which if we can work things out you will be presented the belt by Mick himself in front of the con.

This would be cool, for sure. I did something similar to this at the first year's ACMT and had RVD come meet all the players, sign autographs and take pictures (plus he dropped off some additional prize support). Subsequent year's I had Lita, Melina and Maryse do something similar.

Curious ... He's not listed on their website as one of the guests. Is he confirmed to be there? I suppose I could just as easily call him and ask. =)

So far I am in talks with his agent. The date is open for sure its just working out money at this time. I will update as time goes on. However, if we cannot book Mick we will look into other options. He is just one I think that fits the bill for this con and can bring in lots of people.


Vela also I'm sorry for not responding to your pm. I will on my next break at work I would like to discuss more with you on booking other wrestlers possibly.

As far as I know probably not.. However, I can try to work it in. I know a few of my Raw Deal players play it. It just hasn't really picked up much in this area yet.

I'm going to bring this up to the FFTCG subreddit to see who would be willing to go there from around the area. I'll also speak with Gabe Cavaliere. He's a local player who has direct connections to SquareEnix, and if there's enough interest they just might be willing to hold an event there. No guarantees though.

Just message me details and I'll talk to the guy running the show and let him know. I know he has maybe 3 more small rooms he wants to fill with games and I knoe he said if I needed a bigger space he can get me bigger depending on turnout. he is really good to work with.

There are special deals for rooms if you visit http://planetfunkcon.com.

Also do not purchase any tickets yet. When I come up with an entry fee that will include you day or 2 day pass into the con. I am still working with them on it but once I can confirm Mick Foley is a go I will announce prizes and entry fee over the next few weeks.

However, the top prize for #1 will be a real replica of the WWE Championship belt. (Smackdown belt)

Just curious if we are talking the $750 deluxe replica or the $430 regular replica?  Links below:

https://shop.wwe.com/deluxe-wwe-championship-replica-title/M10021.html?dwvar_M10021_color=No%20Color

or

https://shop.wwe.com/wwe-championship-replica-title-belt-%282014%29/W07717.html?dwvar_W07717_color=No%20Color

Other than the leather is there a huge difference between them? It really all comes down to how many sign up. But I'm leaning more toward the 430 one. But maybe they will have deals on them on down the road .

My goal is to have everyone at least walk out with something.

I do not think there is.  I was thinking about buying one for myself and getting a few side plates as well, but I do not think I would ever use it.

How many of you are willing to come play from out of town  if we book Mick Foley at the event? Also just an update he will be autographing the first place prize. :)
