KW Fireside Gathering #7Thanks to all that came out for our seventh Fireside Gathering! There was over 25 people in attendance which is great, but of course more are always welcome! A special thanks to my volunteer assistants and everyone else that pitched in for your generous help to make our Fireside Gathering run smoothly, especially with me being off sick in the hospital.
Prizes for Competitive Bracket
For this event we had two Competitive Brackets. The first was a 16-slot bracket using Conquest rules, and the second was an 8-slot bracket. Prizes were awarded to both bracket winners.
The first bracket winner, JBeardless, won a hard-fought final battle against EmeraldTemp, and chose a prize from amongst the official Blizzard Hearthstone merchandise we had purchased. Honourable mentions go to Hsinats and Lenopix.
The second competitive bracket winner, Pommy, was was also able to pick a prize item after defeating Kuritoritsu in a well-fought battle.
Free Swag Drawing!
Blizzard has been kind enough to send a Whispers of the Old Gods launch party Support Pack valued at $150 Canadian. We will be giving away 7 of the items to randomly drawn attendees at our next KW Fireside coming up soon on May 26th. The drawing will take place at 7:00pm this time to ensure everyone has a chance to arrive and get settled in first. The plush Hogger from Blizzard will be added to the bracket prize table along with the newly procured set of 4 WoW Brewfest pint glasses and black Blizzard baseball cap in addition to the stuff left over from last KW Fireside. Be sure to bring your friends to the next KW Fireside!

Prizes for Competitive Bracket
A prize will be awarded to the bracket winners, who will be able to pick from some official Blizzard Hearthstone merchandise we have purchased. In the future we will likely add Hearthstone t-shirts and other items. We are checking with Blizzard about the possibility of card pack keycodes being provided by them for awarding as a prize or simply a random draw for any lucky attendee to win. Prize choices are currently a $10-$15 value: a Blizzard hat, an Arena Key bottle opener, one glass from the WoW Brewfest Pint Glass collection, large beach towel, paper notebook for writing, or necklace with pendant. As the gatherings grow in size, or if people want to pay a competition entry fee, we can offer larger prizes.
Remember to bring your friends! All are welcome at the events whether a brand new beginner or a seasoned player!
