If having to be in Saskatoon wasn't too crucial, I could do some looking into venues out here in Biggar. The old Presbyterian church is likely available for rent, and it's right across the street from the theatre, opening up options like having a movie in for us after a day of gaming.

For example:
9:00-10:00 -- Registration, army judging
10:00-12:30 -- Round 1
12:30-1:30 -- Lunch break
1:30-3:00 -- Round 2
3:00-3:15 -- Coffee break
3:15-5:45 -- Round 3
5:45-7:30 -- Supper/unwind
7:30-9:30 -- Mad Max (or any other available movie that gets the popular vote)

Similar schedule layout on Sunday, with rounds 4, 5, and 6, and possibly even a different movie if there was interest. Furthermore, if someone felt the need for some beer over lunch/supper, the Biggar Hotel is licensed, and all of about three and a half town blocks (smaller than city blocks) away.

I could try to dig around and get some numbers for you guys, if you wanted. Possibly cheaper out here due to the lower volume of demand on our local venues.

Having such a big event in biggar, and having the majority of guys having to come out there doesn't make much sense.

especially if we convince people to come in from edmonton, calgary, and winnipeg for this event.  nobody's willing to drive that far, then be told to drive down what they'd think is a 2nd rate highway for another 45 minutes for the event, then back again for their hotels, then back again for the 2nd day, then back home.

The primary issue is logistics.

Assume we can find a location that fits size and price requirements. Assume it can provide 25-40 tables, big enough for Warhammer or 40k or Infinity or what have you.

We still need to transport and arrange terrain on those tables.

Solution: If you are lending terrain, place 1 tables worth in a CLOSABLE box with your name clearly printed. Possibly the system the terrain is made for as well. If you are lending more than one tables worth, add a number.

In my case I would have 2 boxes
Ex.
Beau Sutton #1
Warhammer 40k

I'm Leary of asking ppl to place addresses or contact #s

Other ideas
Include a picture of the table set up, and or a sheet of the terrains datasheets.

At this scale, it's a few trips in the minivans with a couple other guys to transport and move all the terrain.
If we have to bring tables, we'd need a truck or 3 with a large bed, and more tables.

For any tables we cannot get from the den or local players, we'd have to make more. Anyone want a table? It's about $50 in mat'l for a basic table with no legs, and goes up from there.
