Amarillo Design Bureau, Inc. will be hosting its first on-line charity tournament (for Star Fleet Battles, using SFBOL) this October. It will be known as FIGHT FOR A CURE. All entry fees ($10 per person) will be sent to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Sign-ups for the event began on 11 October, and will continue through October 20th.The entry fee is paid via the shopping cart; donations to FIGHT FOR THE CURE can be made there as well without playing in the event.
The Tournament Format will be the usual single-elimination tree, but those eliminated will automatically re-enter (no additional fee) as long as first-round seats are available. This will be a sanctioned rated ace tournament. ADB Inc. will provide a prize of $50 in merchandise credit for the winner. All players and donors will receive an honor bar on their page of the Wall of Honor. Additionally, Dale McKee, the noted artist and contest-winning painter of minis, will be donating a painted mini to be awarded to the winner of the tournament. To commemorate the event, the mini will be of the winning ship.
Amarillo Design Bureau, Inc., invites and encourages the entire adventure game (wargame, RPG, CCG, etc.) industry to host similar events this October and every October, and offers them the free use of the title FIGHT FOR A CURE and the logo. ADB, Inc., makes no claim to be "running" an industry-wide campaign, and any company that supports the fight against breast cancer is welcome to do so in whatever manner they choose, and to donate money to any appropriate charity. Other companies do not have to use the title FIGHT FOR A CURE or the logo if they don't want to, but since none of our companies are big enough to have any real impact, it is hoped that a grass-roots industry-wide "movement" under a single title would be noted outside our industry as showing that our industry recognizes the need to support such campaigns and causes.
