Game for Good: Risk Tournament

Risk Tournament

Risk Tournament

Recently launched, Game for Good is a website and non-profit volunteer organization (if you can call it that) whereby, true to the name, games are played for the good of something. In the case of this event, a Risk tournament will be taking place under the Medicine Hat News Santa Claus Fund. This has been set-up, facilitated, organized and promoted almost exclusively by Jace Anderson, voted the #1 Medicine Hat tweep earlier in the month by Medicine Hat Media. I know, I didn’t list them in numbers, but I think most people would agree he is the number one Medicine Hat Tweep anyways, especially after this. Also involved was Derek Gavey, who set up the website, he is a known commentator on Medicine Hat Media, and was also mentioned in the top Medicine Hat tweeps post.

Anyways, back to the matter at hand: RISK! For those of you that don’t know what Risk is, wait, never mind, Google it, why don’t you know what Risk is? There is no entry fee; however, there is a minimum donation of $20 that goes directly to the Santa Claus Fund and you will be issued a tax deductible receipt. The winner of the tournament will take home a nice $200 (including bragging rights) as well as possible other prizes to those who register early or even show up. The tournament will be taking place December 5th at 9:30AM, at the Cultural Centre and you need to register before December 1st.

There’s been several companies and businesses around the Hat that have either sponsored a table (money donation) or donated some goods and services for the tournament. These include Bean There! Roasting, Classic Construction, and Accessible Accessories so far on the docket. There is still sponsorship spots available if any business or organization is out there reading this.

More information can be found in the Media Release (PDF). I’m sure Jace will comment here if he has anything to add.

    Thank you… it’s great to read that RISK TOURNEY 09 made Medicine Hat Media. No doubt this will get lots of eyeballs and drive interest even more! Any attention is good attention for the Medicine Hat Santa Claus Fund.

    I assure you that the event is not happening as a result of the work of any one person, least of all myself. Besides the wonderful help at the Santa Claus fund, there are numerous other local tweeps who’ve stepped up and given their time and talent; arm twisting for sponsors(it’s all about relationship), providing graphic design (sharp logo huh?) or editing services (i dunt write so gud sumtimz) and much more. You’ve just noticed that I am louder than the others is all 🙂 Now, all the other hard work aside, we really need, and really want as many RISK players as possible!

    latest sponsors include the Medicine Hat Western Financial Group (for all your insurance needs) AND The Comic Forge. They are still located on 2nd st downtown (just a different location as when they were called Tramps)

    Thanks a bunch for recognizing our sponsors; it means a lot to me that we get their names out for supporting all of us who are supporting the Santa Claus fund, which works hard to support our community (this is an awesome circle isn’t it?).

    Everyone together helping the world, one game at a time!
