I am not involved with the event but I heard about this and wanted to pass on the news since there are rarely any Vintage events in Texas that give out power as prizes. The tourney is a Sunday side event for Grand Prix Houston 4/2/2010 - 4/4/2010].
 
 
Vintage for Power
(4 Power Tickets)
Vintage Format - $25 entry
10 Proxies allowed (see below)
10 a.m. registration, 11 a.m. start
Tournament Structure – Swiss plus cut to Top 8
1st Place – Ancestral Recall OR 3 Boxes of Zendikar
2nd Place – Bazaar of Baghdad OR 2 Boxes of Zendikar
3rd/4th Place –Mana Drain OR 1 Box of Zendikar
5th – 8th Place – Force of Will

Edit, just found out proxy requirements:

We will be using the Basic Land method along with Oracle text. If you happen to have a printout for wording on a more arcane card, that would probably help. You could simply write the name on the Basic Land, then have the printed text with you to show an opponent. Definitely, we are not going to use photocopied versions.

Tom Martin: would you go gay for Sebastian Abreu or Russell Brand, too?
BB34:Russel Brand, yes. Sebastian Abreu, no. Every man has a right to have a short list of men they would let ravage them. Who would turn down Ryan Reynolds, come on man.

Ha I was thought the same thing so I called them and asked. They dont actually have the power yet, they have purchased it from other dealers but dont have it in their possession yet. I was told it should be in "good" condition but I didnt ask about what they considered good since the person I was speaking too didnt seem like a play/collecter but rather an event manager. My guess is that good means "not beat to shit" and they are taking kind a hit on that hoping to generate enough interest to turn a profit on the side event.

Please don't do this. I would be very surprised if the judges on this event allowed players to pull out notes and reference them during the match (even if they are printouts of Oracle). If you have questions about a card's Oracle wording, please call a Judge.

I am so there.  One question though:
Quote
1st Place – Ancestral Recall OR 3 Boxes of Zendikar
2nd Place – Bazaar of Baghdad OR 2 Boxes of Zendikar
3rd/4th Place –Mana Drain OR 1 Box of Zendikar

I hope its OUR choice and not theirs, right?   Seems like a ripoff to park though, who's down for some carpooling?

Houston, near I-10 and 45.  Should have room for 2-3 I think.
