The Road to Competition: Searching...

I started seriously looking for a venue location over the weekend. Day 4 into the search and the results: absolutely nothing. Well gee, no wonder Philly has no venues. THERE'S NO PLACE TO HOLD THEM.

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

Redcap's Corner: Already has a TGC league going on. Asking them to convert their league to both TGC and VG would be extremely awkward and besides, a league can have only one organizer... officially, anyway.

Tacony Branch: Summer schedule. Not open on the weekends. Unless I want to hold the event on Friday evening and let the kids skip home in the dark, not happening. It's a second backup though, just need to wait for the schedule to flip back to normal. Too bad it's not open on Sundays, I would have to change my volunteering schedule to make it work. I LOVE THE SATURDAY STAFF, MAN, EVEN IF WE'RE UNDERSTAFFED! Stupid hard decisions.

Central Branch: Under renovation. Apparently their staff shoved everything that was in the way into the empty rooms that would be available otherwise. Soonest available room: January. Ugh, third backup.

Northeast Branch: "Sorry, but the rules state that a group can reserve a room only six times a year." Good for tournaments, terrible for league. Next!

Brave New Worlds: Old City location is waaaaaay too cramped for anything but sales. Too bad.

7th Dimension Games: Best option for now. It's outside the city, but only just, and still accessible by bus. First backup. A likely location (at least, temporarily, until one of the other options open up) if the others agree.

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

Unfortunately, there are ZERO locations that are in the Northeast. And very, very few places in the city that are suitable to host a venue like this. Geez, Philly! Do you hate collectible card games or just the stores dedicated to them? The search continues.

Oh, and I still haven't emailed Dorian yet. If the search continues on like this, I'll never have to. -cringes-
