Call for Volunteers

So...with the event just over 2 weeks away, I am asking for anyone interested in volunteering again this year (and first timers too!), to please email volunteer AT fragapalooza DOT ca.

We need people for setup on Wednesday August 6 beginning at 8am and lasting until everything is done. This is not glamorous work, but is the most important. Be prepared to get dirty (and have fun doing it). If you are only able to help for a few hours on setup day, just indicate that in your email.

We also need people for registration on Thursday and Friday.

Security personnel will be required for the entire event, but I promise to keep your shifts to a minimum wherever possible to allow you to enjoy the event as much as possible.

Remember guys, without volunteers, Fragapalooza would not be possible and every hour you put in REALLY helps the event run smoothly. Even if you only want to do a single 4 hour security shift some night, that totally helps us out, so keep that in mind.

I would prefer all volunteers to be at least 18 years old, but if you are younger and think you have what it takes, email me and we can talk.

Fragapalooza is happy to announce that it is teaming up with Nicholas "Tjej" Siennicki to help organize and run some quality eSports Tournaments during this year's event.  Together, we are dedicated to providing the best possible tournament experience to Fraga attendees.

Tjej has many years of event organization experience, including organizing Starcraft 2's largest Amateur League and helping with Fragapalooza's own Starcraft events in 2012.  Additionally, Nicholas has run many  LAN events in Edmonton and Calgary, including Starcraft 2 and League of Legends tournaments at OverKlocked Gaming.

This year, Fragapalooza will be running three primary tournaments for Hearthstone, Starcraft 2, and League of Legends with awesome trophies for the winners!  Don't want to limit yourself?  Fragapalooza will run additional tournaments if there is sufficient interest for a specific game.  

These events will be strictly organized and ran so that all participants may play in all primary events. Tournament Sign-Ups will begin when the doors open on Thursday, and remain open until 5:00PM on Friday when the tournaments begin.

Early Registration Online Draw

Ramp up for #fp2014 has begun, and we are feeling generous and greedy at the same time. Monday we will be giving away a steam game to a random registered and paid member for the Fragapalooza 2014 event (current registered and paid attendees are eligible). So get that registration in this weekend and you could be a part of that! We promise, it will be a game you do not own... even if we have to strangle StraT's piggy bank to get you one.

Contest is only available to people who have registered with a valid email address for the #Fragapalooza 2014 event on the www.fragapalooza.ca webpage, and who have paid in full their registration. The contest winner will be chosen at random from these paid registrations only. The winner will be notified via their email used for the Fragapalooza 2014 registration.

Good Luck to all and visit Sphincter and friends this weekend at The Eek Comic and Pop Culture Fest for more possible prizes.
