    I am getting a ton of e-mails and texts on this event already. Many people have been asking about the "free entry" we used to offer for this event.
    Since we are bringing it back we will roll with it again this year. If you win the tournament you can receive a free entry into either next year's Descent Into Madness or Sheer Madness event.

    Other question I am getting a lot of is about the USA bids.
    These are not Eastern or Southern bids, these are actual USA National bids. If you win the tournament and prefer to attend an eastern or regional national event instead we can make that happen. The Nationals bids are for the listed sites above so you can play against the best teams in the country and represent Ohio well!
