The wording of the event is confusing, that's what I was told to call it. It's open to everyone.

I do believe we have plans to do a larger invite only for the top players (OverPower Invitational?...) but that's still months away in terms of planning and logistics.

Details are brief.  I do not want to steal any thunder from the Columbus momentum.  The tourney will be open to everyone who can make it and will be the largest tournament since the last nationals.  All details will be given at the beginning of July so that people will have time to make plans.  Until then the only information is the location: Toronto Canada on October 17-18. Also the location of the tourney is listed in a post before this.

Start to book the time off and see if you can become an Overpower Champion.

Any plans on a Toronto meet up before the tournament for playtesting?

Yes, we like to do meetups every other month. Plus a few of us meet up independently for matches. We'll advertise when the next casual meetup will be, it will likely be in September sometime.

Great! I'm hoping to get quite a lot of testing accomplished with some vastly superior players before October.

Hello there my south of the border friends. 

We are about two months away from the Overpower Championship. I could only imagine that, the U.S.A would like to have a great showing.  Toronto is very central and highway friendly.  The tournament is near a Howard Johnson express and the airport.  Contact local members to see if you can get picked up at the airport.

 http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/english/passports/apply.html 

This website will set you up with your passport information. 

We the NORTH look forward to playing the SOUTHs best.

Who will win the championship? Who will win player of the year? 

The biggest Overpower Year in decades, comes to a close on the weekend of, October 17-19/2014.

More info to be announced soon.  Clear the weekend.  Book the hotel. Gas up the car.  The biggest Overpower Tournament since the last nationals. 

In Toronto, Canada. 

Who will be there?

A projected turnout of 25+ players.

Possible faces, like former number #1's

Phil Miller (former #1)
Tyler Bertrand (last rated #1 {old rankings})
Duncan Yuen (Former National Champion)
Phil Keffer (Current #1 player in the rankings)
Marcel Lojet (OP GOD)

And many more high level caliber players. 

WILL YOU BE THERE?  Will you be the next #1 ranked player? 

This is the last chance to gain points for the year.

Stay tuned for more info.

Marcel Lojet

I'll field the postal code question:

M6S 5B5

You're looking at Queensway and Windermere on the map.

Thanks Jack.  Looks like it's pretty easy access for drivers and public transit users.

The exit off the highway should be well before any construction too.
